I pray that the Savior spoke sweetly into your life last week as you sat quietly with Him in the first chapter of the book of Ruth.
Before we push on into the rest of this amazing story, however, I would like for us to spend another couple of weeks sitting with this chapter. And I'll tell you why. I believe that to really experience the heartbeat of what is happening in the lives of Naomi and Ruth, we need to get behind their eyes.
All of us at one time or another in life have passed through trying, pain-filled trials that leave us reeling. Perhaps some of you can relate quite personally to the human tragedy these two women are passing through in this book. As you re-read this passage this week, I would like for you to focus your attention on Naomi.
