Cheryl Rhodes' Latest Book 'Lives and Legacies: Mothers of the Faith' Uncovers Valuable Lessons From the Lives of the Matriarchs of the Judeo-Christian Faith

Sep 29, 2020

EAST PEORIA, Ill. - September 30, 2020 - (Newswire.com) ​​Cheryl Rhodes, a writer whose professional life includes social worker, private practice psychotherapist, teacher in post-secondary education, and pastor; has completed her most recent book “Lives and Legacies: Mothers of The Faith.” This is a thought provoking read that tells the stories of four Bible women with different personalities and backgrounds, but a shared faith. Cheryl writes, “Sarah is undisputedly the matriarch of the nation of Israel even though she bore only one son, Isaac, the son of promise. Her tenure is followed by Rebekah, who had two sons; only one received the promise. Leah, the third matriarch, bore six sons and Jacob’s only daughter. She was the first wife and was, no doubt, influential in raising Rachel’s two boys, as well as the boys of the servant wives. Asenath is included, given that her husband, Joseph, received the double blessing; her two sons became the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh. These stories tell of the woman’s growth, through trial and blessing.  Each of these women had influence in her time and has wisdom to share with believers of our day.” Published by Fulton Books, Cheryl Rhodes’s book, the second in a series of four, is an insightful set of stories about women in the Bible. Accurate to The Word, Cheryl includes extra-Biblical history, geography, cultural norms, archeological information, and gives the woman thoughts and feelings based upon her words and actions. Here, readers will embrace a fresh perspective wherein they can observe how these women lived and how they inspire others. The lessons these ancient women learned can help guide people in all generations. This book can be used for reading, telling the stories, or group study of the women, with discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Readers who wish to experience this unusual work can purchase “Lives and Legacies: Mothers of The Faith” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble. Please direct all media inquiries to Gregory Reeves via email at gregory@fultonbooks.com or via telephone at 877-210-0816.
