Young adult women find life guidance through biblical women mentors

VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 2/18/16)—American Baptist Women’s Ministries and Judson Press are co-sponsoring a free webinar for young adult women (ages 18-35) with author Billie Montgomery/Cook to discuss her award-winning book Sisters of Scripture: Mentors in Womanhood.

Sisters of Scripture: Mentors in Womanhood ushers young women into a warm and welcoming relationship with the women of the Bible through the stories of women such as Eve, Sarah, and Vashti, encountering relationship, trust, and self-respect issues that many young women of today face. Inspiring, enlightening, and empowering, young women will see themselves in these stories and find hope, love, and faith.

During the webinar, participants will be invited to reflect with Cook on several topics addressed in the book, sharing their own insights as well as having the opportunity to ask questions of the author. The same webinar will be offered at three different times:

  • Tuesday, May 17, 2016, 12:00 p.m. Eastern/9:00 a.m. Pacific
  • Thursday, May 19, 2016, 3:00 p.m. Eastern/12:00 p.m. Pacific
  • Sunday, May 22, 2016, 5:00 p.m. Eastern/2:00 p.m. Pacific
