Dear Abishag:
Letters to Little Known Women of the Bible

Everyone who knows anything about the Bible will recognize the names Eve, Sarah, Rachel, and Mary, the mother of Jesus. But have you heard of Abishag or Michal? How about Claudia? Can you name the only woman who reigned as queen in Israel? Do you know the names of Job's daughters? Dear Abishag: Letters to Little Known Women of the Bible is my latest book--a sequel to Dear Mrs. Noah: Letters to Unnamed Women of the Bible. This book was written especially for women who want to know, understand, and learn from obscure women in scripture. There is always a lesson for each of us as we seek to go deeper into the Word.


Dear Mrs. Noah: Letters to Unnamed Women of the Bible

So often we let our value, our worth be defined by what we do, what others say, and those pesky voices in our head. Even our name carries weight and meaning. So what could more than 30 unnamed women referenced in the Bible possibly have to say to you today? Ah, the wondrous answer will be revealed as you read about "the woman at the well," "Jairus' daughter," "Samson's mother," "Potiphar's wife," and yes, "Mrs. Noah." This is a book of encouragement, of hope, of blessing that will help you: ~ Find your voice ~ Embrace your potential ~ Move past your pain ~ And discover your true identity!

A Fictionalized History of the Early Church in Rome

Theirs is the Kingdom is the story of a British princess named Gladys who married a Roman senator and became the co-founders of the first century gentile church in Rome. She alone died of natural causes. Her husband and all four of their children were martyred in the cause of Christ. Claudia is found only one time in scripture (II Timothy 4:21). Theirs is the Kingdom is her story. She was a royal British princess–Gladys, daughter of King Caradoc of Siluria (now Wales). The Roman Emperor Claudius unsuccessfully attempted to conquer Britain, the only country not a part of the Roman Empire. Caradoc held off the Roman legions for seven years. Caradoc was betrayed by a kinswoman and he and his family were carried captive into Rome where Gladys stood beside her father as he plead for clemency. Claudius granted Caradoc his life and adopted Gladys after giving her the name “Claudia” (a feminized version of “Claudius”.) Claudia married Rufus Pudens, a senator. Claudia and her husband co-founded the gentile church in Rome. They had four children, all of whom, along with their father, were martyred in the cause of Christ. Claudia alone died of natural causes. She was a writer of poetry and hymns. She cared for the homeless. She took in children. Claudia was a true follower of Christ.


BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! In 2000 my good friend, Dr. Gladys Lewis, opened Greystone Press and encouraged me to write about my three mothers: 1. My birth mother, Keith McGregor McBride who died at 28 as a result of my birth, 2. My step-mother, Mary Lou Patterson McBride who was the mother I knew and loved. 3. And my lost mother, May Anderson who cared for me in my earliest life and was lost to me when my father decided he wouldn’t give me away after all. A Voice Beyond Weeping has been out of print for 15 years. David Welday, my friend at HigherLife Publishing, encouraged me to allow him to bring the story back to life.
