Jean Gibson has always been inspired by the stories of great women in the past who have overcome enormous obstacles, proving God in unusual circumstances and thereby growing stronger and more dynamic in their faith. Seasons of Womanhood is a contemporary collection of inspiring stories of women who have faced the realities of life and proved the sufficiency of God's grace in many different situations. The stories cover various stages of a woman's life, from early days through the final years. "There are no celebrities in this book; no guaranteed happy endings, comfortable career choices or stories of starstruck success. Instead, there are real lives of real faith in a real God who shows up in the toughest of circumstances for the most ordinary of women."
