Modern-day pressures for supermodel beauty, high-powered careers, and perfect families place a spotlight on a woman's achievements instead of her worth. This book, using stories from numerous First Ladies, shows how they triumphed while experiencing intense pressure. By using their stories, along with a Hebrew proverb and biblical principles, Jane Cook explains that God is the true source of value and worth.
Women will be encouraged to view their roles, talents, and responsibilities as opportunities to allow God to shine through them. Highlights include:
- Abigail Adams' commitment to serving as the primary caretaker for her family during the Revolution shows the worth of working with eager hands, (Proverbs 31:13).
- Laura Bush's heart of compassion shows the significance of extending hands to the poor and needy in times of crisis, (Proverbs 31:20).
- Louisa Adams' remarkable solo journey to Paris under siege by Napoleon shows the value of steadfastness during a time of terror threats, (Proverbs 31:21).
- Barbara Bush's wit and quips reveal the splendor of celebrating joy in life, (Proverbs 31:25).
- Martha Washington's willingness to knit shirts and socks for soldiers during the Revolution shows the value of leading by example, (Proverbs 31:19).
- Anna Harrison's words of wisdom and prayers for her children and grandchildren deliver a family legacy of faith and leadership. (Proverbs 31:26).
