Pass Down Wisdom and Spiritual Nourishment
Not every young woman has a loving, Christian mom. Many young women today find themselves spiritually alone as the only Christian in their family or circle of friends. Other times, our mobile society separates mothers and daughters by distance. Or women find themselves dealing with issues Mom can't always relate to, and these daughters need a Christian woman to share advice and give motherly guidance. Even Mary, the mother of Jesus, knew she needed to talk to another woman who could relate to and understand her situation- she needed a spiritual mother.
Face-to-Face with Elizabeth and Mary studies the reciprocal benefits and joys of one generation investing in the next. From the author's many years of experience in women's ministry, she shares personal stories that illustrate the principles studied. This study is ideal for individuals, pairs of women in mentoring relationships, or for small groups of women. A leader's guide is also included with questions and plans for each session's success.
