Excerpt from Wisdom Found: Stories of Women Transfigured by Faith

Ribs Cracked, Nose Broken


In the midst of the probationary months after my adolescent son’s arrest he lived for a short time with his father across town. One morning they had an argument, and his father beat him savagely. My son’s face was bloody, his nose was broken, ribs cracked, bones bruised.


Apart froma child’s untimely death, it was this mother’s worst nightmare.


I sat by his emergency room bed crushed, wishing he were small enough to cradle tenderly…I knew those many years ago that this man was dangerous. Why did I let my son go there?



Intelligent spirituality with liturgical roots is important to me. This book works on a number of levels and can be uplifting Lenten reading or contemplative reading at any time. The writers provide a conversation that is meaningful and that helps the reader process life in a genuine and kindly manner with self-respect. It also moves the reader to a deeper relationship in faith and offers a pathway of the heart and soul that is supportive and uplifting.

“Just IMHO,” Amazon Review

Reading Bible Women is an opportunity to get re-acquainted with not only the stories of biblical woman, but also an opportunity to reflect anew on their words and actions. Included here are some of the most familiar biblical women and, importantly, some of those not frequently the focus of study but introduced here with devotion and respect. An excellent resource for individual and group prayer and reflection.

Frankly, I loved this book. After my study is over, I hope to use the book for some personal devotional time. It’s easy to read, with the information in clear, digestable chunks. The scholarship is well done and accessible.

Author and visionary Lindsay Hardin Freeman brings us another great leap forward in comprehension of the realities of the female presentations in the Bible.  Her diligent analysis of every line uttered by women in scripture delivers startling insights never before analyzed, nor understood, as parts of a deeper message regarding the female half of the human species.  This gender, as we all know, is in desperate need of a healthier level of interaction and with Bible Women: All Their Words and Why They Matter, Lindsay Hardin Freeman offers us hope for a fresh platform of progress.

In Bible Women: All Their Words and Why They Matter, Lindsay Hardin Freeman brings to light an entirely new and in-depth understanding of the often unrecognized contribution women made in the overall biblical narrative. Freeman’s very adept biblical scholarship provides what I believe to be groundbreaking work in providing greater awareness and appreciation of the importance Bible women play in our sacred story.

This book is truly a must-own resource for anyone interested in the women in the Bible. I love how it is laid out, making it easy to reference different women. Overall the thoughts, questions, and isolation of speaking text are all remarkably well-done…
