Admit it, there are parts of the Bible that are difficult to digest. Certain words sting going down and sometimes cause us to question our faith. In the Old Testament story of Hannah, I found staring at me, like a dagger, seven words about why Hannah could not conceive a child: because the Lord had closed her womb. In fact, those seven disturbing words are found twice in just two verses, so we don’t miss the fact that God was the One who was withholding from Hannah...

Two of my greatest blessings have been having an amazing single mother raise me and being a mother to an amazing daughter.
