A Woman of Valor

A Woman of Valor

The Story of Naomi

By Judy Higgins

Based on the story from the Book of Ruth


1050 B.C.E.

“Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land, and a certain man of Bethlehem went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and their two sons. The name of the man was Elimelech. His wife was Naomi, and their two sons, Mahlon and Chilion.”  

To save their flocks from the devastation of a drought, Naomi and her family leave Bethlehem to live among the Moabites, enemies of the Israelites since the time of Moses. Surmounting hardships and tragedies, Naomi draws on her courage and resilience to bring about a marriage which changes the course of history. Set against the backdrop of war and anarchy during the Time of the Judges, A Woman of Valor is a story of kindness, loyalty, and generosity. It is also a testament to the need for all mankind to bear responsibility for the poor, the foreign, and the bereaved.
