Last week we will considered a famous mom from the Bible named Hannah. Hannah’s life was pretty much a life of failure ― at least from the perspective of her own society. But we discovered how her faithfulness to God changed all that, and more. This Friday, October 26, we will look at a less-than-famous but nevertheless important woman named Abigail. She’s a multi-tasker and a proactive problem solver. Come on Friday to hear the rest of her story.
