Hi, I’ve been reading this awesome book called Rhinestones on my Flip-Flops by Jane Jenkins Herlong. This is a very interesting book about several different types of women in the Bible to learn good virtues and how to be humble with a little humor put in the mix.
These are a few WOW (women of wisdom) characters we look at in the book.We look at Esther and her courage to know in her heart what was the right thing to do, even though her life was at stake. Then we look at Mary and Martha and how each woman had different feelings for the priorities. We look at Sarah, Abraham’s wife and how she took matters in her hands, because felt tired and dried up. And let’s not forget Naomi and Ruth… both had many situations to over come, but kept their faith and God richly blessed them. There are more women mentioned in this book, but you get the point. Women role models that are good examples to learn by.
I have liked this book, but it hasn’t been my all time favorite. The humor was fairly good and well thought about. It always seemed to put a smile on my face. However, the book was just a so-so read for me. Sometimes I felt the topics and chapters wandered. However, that is just a matter of opinion. Lastly, I have to mention this was a complimentary copy of the book from Faith Words/Hachette Publishing company.
If you’d like to find a copy, here are a few places.
