This week we welcome debut author Lauren Crews to A Rough Draft Life! Lauren won us over with the tagline for her new non-fiction, Strength of a Woman, which “ain’t your momma’s Proverbs 31!”
Lauren is an award-winning author and holds an MDiv from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. With twenty years’ experience in women’s ministry, she dives deep into God’s word. She loves to explore our Jewish roots as believers and is eager to share the many layers with women in all roles of life. She resides in Jacksonville, FL with her husband and two brown labs who have their humans well trained.
Lauren tells us how this book is different from other Proverbs 31 books.
Strength of a Woman looks at the Proverbs passage through the original Hebrew language. It is an acrostic poem of the Hebrew alphabet. Hebrew letters hold imagery and the images of each letter relates to the verse. Add to that word studies from the verses and we see interesting new insight. For example the passages has multiple references to warfare and the duties of the tabernacle priests. We begin to see the Proverbs woman sift from a homemaker to a warrior.
Order a copy for yourself or the strong women in your life this Mother’s Day. Visit Lauren’s website to purchase and she’ll ship you a personalized copy.
