Naomi’s story, found in the book of Ruth, is a story of lost identity. She lost her husband, her sons, her home—everything. She reacted by becoming bitter. But even in her angry, fearful, rather dramatic season of self-pity and despair, God kept showing his faithfulness. When you go through trauma, loss, and hardship, God remains close. He can and will redeem even the darkest circumstances.
The Known by Name series explores complex women in the Bible and their struggles with tough questions through the lenses of a counselor, a Bible teacher, and a dramatist.
