What do you do when God seems to have vanished? Maybe you feel alone in your decision making, your parenting, in your life?

This is the question on the back of the book that we are going to highlight today. It is called *Esther: Seeing Our Invisible God in an Uncertain World. I don’t know if you know this, but Esther is one of the two books of the Bible where God’s name is not mentioned once. We are going to dive deeper into this today in our study. But I think it is amazing, because God’s fingerprints are all over the book of Esther, but His name is not mentioned. Maybe that is where you feel like you are in your life. You are like where are you God, I don’t see you or feel you. Are you even working? So I love that we can study the life of Esther, and we can see that God still is present. He is still working!

I am so excited to have Lynn Cowell and Amy Carroll on the podcast to talk about their Bible Study. It is phenomenal, and we are going to dive deeper into their 6-week study with these words: Listen, Feel, Do, Speak. Also, both Lynn and Amy are writers for Proverbs 31 Ministries, and I am so excited to share about this amazing ministry for Giving Tuesday. I cannot wait to tell you more about that at the end of the episode. Again, you are going to learn so much from Amy and Lynn.

Also, I am so excited for someone to win a copy of Lynn and Amy’s new book: *Esther. All the details of the book giveaway are on my website at jodirosser.com or you can click this direct link: https://kingsumo.com/g/r8k3tr/esther-bible-study-giveaway

It is fun to have Lynn back on the Podcast! If you missed my first conversation with Lynn and Michelle about their book, *Loved & Cherished, please check out Episode 51 on the Depth podcast. I love this devotional for young girls.
