Life is hard. It’s complicated. It’s messy.

Life is hard. It's complicated. It's messy.   I have a friend who was unexpectedly, prematurely widowed. A friend who is an alcoholic but won't admit it. Several friends fighting cancer in their thirties. A friend in the throes of an affair. A friend who's been...

Week 4: Investing in a Legacy that Lasts

Oh, don’t you just love how Boaz is a man of his word? Right after Ruth heads back to Naomi with a shawl full of barley - and I’m sure a heart filled with hope - Boaz wastes no time and travels into town, just like he said he would. Boaz is ready to make good on his...

Doing Right in a Tempting World…

"[The book of] Ruth is a portrait of beautiful, noble manhood and womanhood. In a day when movies and television and advertising and the Internet portray masculinity and femininity in the lowest ways, we are in great need of stories that elevate the magnificent...

Ruth Was a Proverbs 31 Woman…

Can I tell you a secret? Ruth Chapter 3 has always made me a little nervous. I mean, am I the only one who cringes at the thought of Ruth going to the threshing floor that night and following Naomi's orders? Ahhh, talk about awkward! My heart begins to beat faster,...

Week 3: A Daring Proposal

There’s No Such Thing As Luck!

I used to believe in “good luck” - that events and opportunities in my life happened by chance and some people are just more “lucky” than others. Then in college, my roommate challenged me one day and said, “Angela, that isn’t random luck. That’s God.” And you know...

Sheltered Under His Wings

This weekend, I rolled down my window at a red light and tried to speak God’s kindness to a homeless pregnant woman who was panhandling for money. I felt the crushing pain of her desperation in her bitter response. I can’t stop thinking about her. As I offered her...

Week 2: The Sovereign God Who Goes Before Us

"So she set out and gleaned in the field after the reapers, and she happened to come to the part of the field belonging to Boaz, who was of the clan of Elimelich." - Ruth 2:3 If you came into this study expecting only a love story, you know by now that the story of...

Pleasant to Bitter

It seems impossible to have hope when you are filled with pain and loss and your dreams have been shattered. Although it is difficult to believe that God is near, His sovereignty never sleeps. When our pain is the deepest and our doubt the greatest, God remains with...

The Depth of Loyal Love…

I am currently living in the land of teenagers, and within that privileged territory I get to engage in some lively conversation around the dinner table each night. Shallow topics can range anywhere from food (and the fact that they're always hungry!) to the latest...

Ruth Introduction

The Danger of Friendship With the World

It's time for spring cleaning in my life - literally the cleaning of my closets and figuratively of my heart. We live in a world that bombards us with the need for more, better, newer, and bigger. It's so easy to get distracted. And - particularly with social media -...

Run Free…

“For His unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear Him.”...

Week 5: The Adulterous Woman

She had been caught red-handed. Exposed front and center. What she had attempted to get away with in secret had now been brought to the light. And now she was pressed on every side by angry critics who condemned her and called for her to pay the ultimate price.  Her...
