About the Book

Five Hebrew matriarchs journey away from barrenness, shame, and disgrace, finally coming to fruitfulness. Through God's grace, barren wives conceive and birth sons. In Abraham's family, three generation of matriarchs are barren, and the seed is seemingly in danger of not being multiplied. The author shares the story of her season of spiritual barrenness and shows the connection between physical and spiritual barrenness, as well as the principles of fruitfulness that she learned.

A monograph of a biblical character precedes each chapter to further the journey theme, and reflection questions follow each chapter to present opportunities for individual insight. For small group study, a Journey study guide provides a format for weekly or monthly sessions.
