    Highly recommended. I love Sarah's writing style. She brings women from the Bible alive to us in a way that is so relevant to our own experience today. Her own devotional segments are delightful. While this book was written for young Christian women, at 57 I could still relate! Still learning! Highly recommended. I love Sarah's writing style.

    I had the pleasure of attending a Sally Clarkson conference recently in Raleigh, NC with some friends. Sally is Sarah’s mother who is also an author and speaker. I had honestly never heard of either Sally or Sarah but my friends spoke so highly of Sally that I decided to come along and listen to Sally speak. Well, at the conference, I also got to hear this author, Sarah speak several times as well. This book was actually given to each attendee as a free gift.

When I got home, I decided to read this book right away but honestly I didn’t have high expectations for it. Well, I was wrong! Sarah definitely has a gift of writing! This book is broken up into four parts: Part One: Mary & Martha Part Two: Mary, Mother of Jesus Part Three: Esther Part Four: Ruth Sarah has a beautiful way of imagining the life and stories of each woman in this book. I have read and heard each of these women’s stories many times but I’ve never thought about it in such a personal way before. Sarah’s writing style really brings these characters to life and helps you to see that they weren’t just historical figures in the Bible but real women who struggled with life just like we do. After each chapter, Sarah has written a devotional and verses to ponder. I used this book as my daily devotions but some days I loved the story so much, I kept on reading! I especially loved the story of Mary, Mother of Jesus. What a hard thing she went through when she had to tell the people she loved the most that she was pregnant before marriage and with God’s Son, that fear of being misunderstood must have been so difficult. Sarah did a great job describing what may have been to in her thoughts and how she may have struggled in this way. I think through this book, Sarah has encouraged me to see the stories (especially of the women) in the Bible in a whole new way that is much more relatable to my own personal life! What great examples these women in the Bible are to us and I thank Sarah for showing this to me in such an alluring way.

    Sarah is a beautiful writer. There is a luxuriousness to each of her sentences that allows me to be thoroughly immersed in the stories. I would have loved to have her guidance or responses to some of the bible study questions; although, the devotionals were helpful in that they were very relatable and honest. I'm not necessarily a young woman anymore, but I still found these stories supportive and encouraging. Sarah is a beautiful writer.

    I didn't expect this book to be so very beautiful. I read one chapter a day and the corresponding Scriptures for my devotions for a while, and it led me on an unexpected journey. I love the way Sarah makes Biblical characters come to life and helps the reader to experience old stories in a fresh, new way. Every story points to the goodness of God. Highly recommend this book to all ladies, not just the young. I didn't expect this book to be so very beautiful.

    By now, I’m sure you know how much I really enjoy Apologia products – and the most recent review product I received from them is no different. Journeys of Faithfulness by Sarah Clarkson is a book geared for ages 12 and up (although a mature girl could work her way through it as well) for moms and their daughters. In 232 pages girls will read accounts of Mary and Martha, Mary, the Mother of Jesus, Esther and Ruth and using historical fiction will see how God can and does love girls just like them By now, I’m sure you know how much I really enjoy Apologia products – and the most recent review product I received from them is no different. Journeys of Faithfulness by Sarah Clarkson is a book geared for ages 12 and up (although a mature girl could work her way through it as well) for moms and their daughters. In 232 pages girls will read accounts of Mary and Martha, Mary, the Mother of Jesus, Esther and Ruth and using historical fiction will see how God can and does love girls just like them – they will dig into God’s Word and hopefully come away with a much stronger knowledge of their relationship with Christ. If you’re like me, you may be leery of handing your daughter, a fictionalized historical account of Biblical women and stories – however put your fears to rest. Unlike other books Sarah Clarkson does not add to or take away from God’s Word but makes it come alive to His daughters. In fact I felt more emotion in relating to these women of the Bible, than just reading the Biblical accounts – because sometimes we don’t get to ‘see’ all of what they are going through. We meet Mary and Martha and we know their story but do we really know them? After reading the story you and your daughter will work through a devotion – either alone or together. I prefer to do it apart and then come together for discussion, or if your daughter is very private have her leave her thoughts in a journal where you can read and leave comments and vice versa. After the devotional reading that relates your daughter’s modern life to that of the Bible woman’s life and to God there is the Bible study. The Bible study has 3 to 4 Scripture readings with some things to think on or put into action – there is plenty of space to write under the Scripture reference or you can use the included journey journal pages. Of course, you can also use the idea above of using a separate journal that is shared by both mother and daughter – what a great way to not only strengthen the relationship between the Lord and your daughter but also you and her? With Christmas around the corner I think this would make a great gift for any young lady who is needing to get more out her relationship and how the Bible and God relates to her life. I really want to continue on in this study with my 10 year old and hopefully again when my second daughter gets old enough. If your daughter isn’t grounded in the above characters you may want to go over them with her before giving her the book so she can decipher what is historical and what is fiction and how it does tie together. This book is definitely one that each young lady who yearns to lead a life pleasing to the Lord can glean so much from. *Disclaimer: As a member of the Schoolhouse Review Crew, I received this product, at no cost to me, in exchange for my honest review.

    Love it! I never really thought much about the women of the Bible, at least the women that are highlighted. When I began reading this book, I thought it was going to be a book about encouragement from other Christian women, but I didn't expect the women of the Bible. As I read, I was challenged. Would I be able to leave all I knew to follow my mother-in-law to a foreign land after I lost a husband? Would I be willing to sacrifice my life for the jewish people?
