Part four: Ruth
You can view the entire contents here. A Sample Chapter of Mary & Martha, Chapter 1 Learning to See, is also available.
Each chapter contains stories of life & faith, a devotional, Bible study, and a Journey Journal.
I chose to read the entire book myself before reading it with my daughters. I read one chapter every other day but plan on reading one chapter a week with my daughters so we can have time to read the actual passage in the Bible, reflect on the devotions, and dig deep in God's word by studying the Bible verses given for each chapter. I love how several pages are included for journaling as well.
At first, I wasn't sure I would care much for fictional stories of Bible passages but once I started reading, I was drawn in. The author made each story come alive and as a reader, I almost felt that I was there, going back in time.
One of my favorite chapters is Chapter 12 of Part 4, which is about Ruth. I especially enjoyed reading "Desire of My Heart." Ruth is an excellent example of faithfulness and trusting in God to lead her where she needed to be. This book would make a wonderful addition to any home library!
