Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. Wherever you die, I will die, and there I will be buried.
We are so accustomed to hearing these words spoken at a marriage ceremony, that I don’t think many of us stop to ponder that this pledge was made by a daughter-in-law (Ruth) to a mother-in-law (Naomi).
It is a beautiful book in the Bible written about the love between two women and their resourcefulness in overcoming adversity.
If you have had times in your life when the love and friendship of women have helped you not just to survive but thrive, I invite you to send me your story and I will include it in the Naomi and Ruth Project.

Wishing you times spent with cherished women friends family,
