God keeps His promises, but it doesn't always turn out like we expect.

We often hear the phrase have faith, but what does it actually mean to live that out? In The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak, Shannon Bream explores the lives of biblical women to reveal how God's plan can turn our words upside down. She examines the story of Jochebed, a mother who took great risks to protect her son, Moses, from Pharoh. Could Jochebed have imagined that God's actual design for her son involved a flight into exile and danger? It was all part of the master plan God used to deliver Israel from slavery. Rebekah, another biblical mother, made terrible choices in an attempt to secure her son's place in history. Michal, a daughter, struggled to keep her faithless father, Saul, from sin, while battling pride in her own heart.

Shannon uses these stories to explain the intimate connection between her faith and family, and how God's unexpected agenda can redefine the way we think about family. Not all of these mothers and daughters are great virtuous examples. Like us, they were humans who faltered and struggled to do their best. While some heart God's voice, others chose their own paths. Through the lens of their imperfections, we can witness how God used their stories to bring about His divine plans. He's still doing the same work in our lives today.

The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak teaches how faith is more often a twisting road than a direct path. Yet, as the stories of biblical families can attest, at the end of these journeys is a greater peace and joy than we could ever imagine.
