Today I want to share with you about  the newest book being released, the second book in the series: 

Esther, the Belle of Patience 

I love the concept of this book, which is using women of the Bible to help young girls discover what real beauty is through God’s love and to help them realize that He has a special purpose for each of our lives. 

The story reminded me of another series of books from my childhood where a girl walked through a giant book to see bible land only the character in this story opened a window and peeked in to see bible land. The story opens with a young girl named Rooney on the soccer field. Having a daughter that plays soccer I must admit that the story line was all to familiar. A small angel appears and introduces her to the window in which she peeks in and sees the story of Esther being played out. Upon hearing the story of Esther and realizing her “super power” of patience Rooney returns to the soccer field and uses what she learned to make things right on the field. 

I think this book has a great storyline and is illustrated beautifully. My only complaint is relating these women of the Bible to superheros. It doesn’t take a superhero to be faithful to God. In fact God seems to choose some of the least likely characters to do great things through. These women didn’t have super powers as stated in the story. They were faithful and obedient to God and it was through God that they were allowed to accomplish great things. It would have been nice to have displayed how God uses ordinary people to extraordinary things when they walk in obedience with him… no superpowers needed!
