The Mother’s Blessing and God’s Favour Towards Women
Above rubies? That’s what many translations of Proverbs 31 say about Wisdom and about a woman of noble character.
But the Hebrew Scriptures suggest “pearls” is more accurate a rendering. Unlike rubies, pearls require years of work to make something beautiful from an irritation.
Did you know:
- The women of Israel refused to participate in the building of the golden calf?
- They were the first to sacrifice their jewellery for the building for the tabernacle.
More Precious than Pearls looks at nuances in the Hebrew text of the Bible that are often obscured in English translations. These nuances all relate to women – and their steadfast, heroic faith. Be surprised by God’s joy and His rewards for women because they so often were steadfast and faithful when the men wavered.
Included are prayers for you or for the women in your life. For mothers or grandmothers, the chapters also include a prayer to declare over your children.
This book is a simple and profound read. The layout includes meaningful paintings, prayers and is a perfect gift for any woman.

This book is really great- filled with lots of stories & insights -thanks to Anne Hamilton & Natale tensen for writing it. My children are 14 yrs. -22 yrs. old . I have been praying the prayers at the end of each chapter over my “kids”. It includes great revelation about being a woman , a wife, and a mother . It shares about the value of women in the bible,which I really needed reinforced in my life . It’s my morning devotional -the chapters are short but powerful .
I GIVE IT 5 STARS 🙂 ! I am going to buy more for gifts.
