Successful Women of the Bible by Katara Washington Patton
About: Successful Women of the Bible written by Kara Washington Patton is a practical book about women in the Bible written in a fictional fashion, but also like a self-help book. It is full of Godly wisdom of many women in the Bible that today's modern women can apply to her home, marriage, friendships, emotional life and parenting. Each women of the Bible in this book focuses on something different, which is very refreshing to read.
I particularly enjoyed the stories on Hagar and Esther. The author uses an approach in story telling that makes these women relevant to the culture that we live in without taking the Bible out of context. I think this book is fantastic and re-tells the stories of the women straight from God's word. Katara takes their stories and uses them to teach stories of wisdom, grace and even offers encouragement. I highly recommend this book and really enjoyed it.
Thank you to the Faith Words for providing me a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes only. I give this book a 5/5 stars for content, accuracy and practical application.

To learn about the author:
I am a writer, editor, wife, mom, daughter, sister and friend. I have been in publishing all of my adult life and love it. I've been a staff writer/editor at Jet Magazine. I've written for little ones at Weekly Reader. I've developed and edited curriculum at UMI and McGraw-Hill. I know both sides of publishing (as a writer on the outside and as an editor on the inside)...it's a wild world worth traveling.
I am currently working on my third installment of the Successful people of the Bible series (Hatchette/Faith Words)! Looking forward to seeing Successful Women of the Bible come out in August.
