book of Ruth. “Every woman will eventually face it: the temptation
to give in and give up. But something transformative happens when a

woman who refuses to quit influences her world in ways she could
never have imagined.” Jennifer England Bland and Carolyn Morris led this
study for women of all ages. Over thirty women participated
in the Bible study.
