I Choose The Sky
by Emily Wilson
The Bible is filled with pages of narratives of people that gave their entire lives to God. Many of these stories are about men and a natural question arises, “Are there women in the Bible? Do they have a place in the Church?” It is a good question with a great answer. There are many women who are a vital part of salvation history and their stories are critical parts of Sacred Scripture. Do you know them?
I Choose the Sky paints a beautiful portrait of just a handful of these women – seventeen, in fact, whose stories are easily glossed over, but not easily forgotten. These women, heroic and virtuous, teach us something about the very fabric of human-kindness and God’s love. This book is about their choice to raise their eyes heavenward despite difficulties and live their lives with hope, boldness, generosity, and great faith.
This scriptural devotion will inspire young women to raise their heads along with Mary, Martha, Lydia, and Esther and look into the eyes of Jesus, the God who loves deeply and perfectly.
