A Quote by Edith Alderman Deen on darkness, evil, good, life, motherhood, and women

The lives of the women of the Bible made patterns of light or of darkness. . . . Watch for the phrase in Kings and Chronicles, "And his mother was . . ." This is usually followed by the phrase, "And he did that which was good in the sight of the Lord," or "And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord." In placing the name of the king's mother and the evaluation of his reign side by side, the Hebrews showed how powerful they regarded the role of a mother.

A Quote by Edith Alderman Deen on adventure, courage, curiosity, good, history, life, spirit, and women

The queen of Sheba . . . lives on now, nearly thirty centuries since her visit [to Solomon in Israel], as a woman whose spirit of adventure and whose resourcefulness, courage, and curiosity have not bee surpassed by any queen in history. And certainly her sense of good public and international relations is unparalleled among women of the Bible.
