Wee Read Wednesday: Esther {Bible Belles}

bible belles esther
The adventures of Rooney and Mari continue in Book Two of the Bible Belle series. With the help of her angel Mari, Rooney has learned that she has the power to talk to God through the amazing story of Hannah; now it’s time for her to see how the Power of Patience can help her to wait and trust in Him.

As she watches Esther and her struggle to save her people, Rooney learns how to handle her conflict on the soccer field by allowing God to lead her in His perfect time.

Join Rooney and Mari on another exciting adventure to becoming the best kind of superhero—a Bible Belle!

My Thoughts:
You may remember a few months ago when I introduced you to the Bible Belles with Hannah. We continue to love Hannah’s book in our home, and we have been so excited about the upcoming release of Esther.

My daughter always says Esther is her favorite woman in the Bible, so I could not wait to tell her Esther would be featured as the next Bible Belle. She has asked me almost weekly when the Esther book would be here.

In Esther’s book, we reconnect with Rooney and her friends having troubles on the soccer team. Rooney wants to speak up to the coach, but the timing is simply not right. When Mari arrives, she takes her on a journey to see Esther in action.

Many of us know the story of Esther and her patience as she prepared to talk to the king about saving her people. Most people would have marched right up to the king and spoke their mind, likely causing more harm than good. But Esther prayed to God and waited for Him to guide her in her words and actions.

Just like Rooney learned patience in waiting on God, girls reading this book see how Esther and her people benefited by simply waiting on God’s timing. This is such a fun book, and a perfect addition to our Bible Belles collection.
