Reviews - What do customers think about Showing Mary: How Women Can Share Prayers, Wisdom, and the Blessings of God?

To the "Mary" (and "Elizabeth") In You....  Apr 24, 2003
Rev. Weems has written wonderfully, and expressed simply, the impact women have on the lives of other women. At any given moment, we may be either "Mary" or "Elizabeth." I found my chapter(s) and rejoiced with each page that God had brought women (elders and lil' sisters) into my life to teach me and be taught by me. I recommend "Showing Mary" to every woman--regardless of your ethnicity, denomination or generation; but ESPECIALLY those who may have thought you "missed the boat," or were "sailing alone." Thank you, Renita, and thank you "Elizabeth" for sharing this treasure with me. With much love...."Mary"
