Contemporary women face numerous challenging and often painful issues, including infertility, caring for aging parents, singleness, the generation gap, the role of women in marriage and ministry, materialism, and difficult marriages. We're not alone. All of these issues were faced by women in the Bible, and it's God's desire that we learn from, and find encouragement in, their stories. Learn how you can make a difference in your family, your church, and your community by studying the examples of scriptural women who in so many ways were just like us.

About Ruth Haley Barton

Ruth Haley Barton - Women Like Us
Ruth Haley Barton is a spiritual director, teacher and retreat leader.
Trained through the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation (Washington, D.C.) and the Pathways Center for Spiritual Leadership (Nashville, Tennessee), she is cofounder of The Transforming Center, a community of Christian men and women who shape and care for the souls of leaders--equipping them to guide their churches and organizations in becoming spiritually transforming communities that discern and do the will of God.

Barton was educated at Wheaton College and Northern Baptist Theological Seminary.
She served on the staff at several different churches, including Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois, and as past president of the Chicago chapter of Christians for Biblical Equality.
Her books include An Ordinary Day with Jesus: Experiencing the Reality of God in Your Everyday Life (a spiritual formation curriculum coauthored with John Ortberg, Zondervan); Invitation to Solitude and Silence: Experiencing God’s Transforming Presence (IVP); and The Truths That Free Us: A Woman's Calling to Spiritual Transformation (Waterbrook/Shaw).


"Women Like Us is an inspiring study guide rich with wisdom, insight, and hope from the lives of Sarah, Hannah, Deborah, Naomi, and other prominent women of the bible. As wives, mothers, friends, adult children, and citizens, they were 'just like us.' This easy-to-use guide offers women of today an opportunity to learn from their decisions and choices--even from the mistakes."

--Karen O'Connor, author of Basket of Blessings and Squeeze the Moment
