Exhausted? Troubled? Broken? In LIKE A SWEET FRAGRANCE, the author explores these questions through the lives of eleven women in the Bible. Some were rejects, unwanted and unloved, yet they discovered Christ was more than able to restore their shattered hearts. Others made regrettable decisions, yet they discovered God's mercy in the midst of their mistakes. And still others were instrumental in the life of King David, the man after God's own heart. Their stories are worthy of reflection for they show us how valuable we are to God and to others even if we don't think that we are. Like the notes that harmonize in a perfume, these eleven women leave behind a fragrance stronger and more powerful than themselves. Rarely, were their lives easy, nor do they suggest an easy answer to our problems, yet their struggles invite us to ponder, to wrestle, to question, to pray, and to dig deeper into the mystery of God and the salvation of Christ. And to be changed. With examples from her own life, Becky Finch Bader reminds us that we can crack and fall apart and break, but as followers of Christ, we matter. Through us, God spreads the sweet fragrance of Jesus throughout the world as we follow Him, doing what we were made to do.
