Ruth–a rags-to-riches-redemption story

What if you discovered that God not only cares for every detail of your life, but that He also has events mapped out in your life that will bring you greater joy than you’ve ever known?  What if God didn’t just sit on the sidelines cheering you on, but played an integral role in your life?  What if you let God take control of your life and became obedient to His calling in your life?  Would you discover, like Ruth and Naomi, that God really did have your best interests in mind when He allowed certain events to take place in your life?

Hard questions but just take a look at the book of Ruth.  Liz Curtis Higgs has a knack for transforming a biblical account into a valuable learning experience.  In her new book, “The Girl’s Still Got It”, readers follow Ruth as she travels to Moab, loses the most important people in her life, and travels back to Bethlehem with her daughter-in-law Naomi.  Ruth’s life story is an exciting look into how God works in His people’s lives.

With humor and remarkable insight, Higgs shows us that Ruth and Naomi are no different from you and me.  We all walk through difficult trials in life, struggle with God’s intent and purpose in allowing them to touch our life, and discover should we stick close to Him that He loves us and takes care of us even in those times when He seems distant and aloof.

Liz Curtis Higgs is a popular conference speaker and author.  She lives with her family in Louisville, Kentucky.
