Standing Between Life and Death: Miriam
Standing Between Life and Death: Zipporah and Huldah
The Apostle to the Apostles: Mary Magdalene

Teachers, Elders, and Coworkers
3. Mothers and More
Rachel and Leah
5. Off to Work
Priscilla and Lydia
The women who don’t have links, I have not written on yet. I also realize the articles I have written need a lot of rewriting. For those who just found the site, Career Women of the Bible started out as my thesis in seminary. I’ve started to rewrite it, but it still is very scholary and has some ways to go before it has the narrative and story-like quality that I want the finished book to have.
This is just a start, but I think it is a good one. Any advice or opinions? Who did I leave out? Why do you think they should be included? Please let me know. Thanks.

Did you know there are thousands of verses in the Bible that tell the stories of women who were leaders in their homes, towns, and religious circles?
