Take a walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomi’s hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together. And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God, big time.
We’ll tarry in the corners of their homes, listen to their conversations, and consider every powerful verse until we can say, “I totally get the book of Ruth. And I see what God is trying to teach me through this rags-to-riches redemption story—he has a plan for my life.”
Girl, does he ever!
If you enjoy meaningful journeys and redemptive endings, shared with humor, honesty, and hope, you’ve come to the right place!
Titles for Keynote Sessions with Liz:
#1 Off to a Rocky Start
There was a famine in the land… Ruth 1:1
It’s hard to be happy when you’re hungry. Naomi and her family departed Judah for greener pastures, only to experience tragedy upon tragedy. Was God still there? Did God still care?
#2 Coming or Going?
Return home, my daughters. Ruth 1:11
When a desperate Naomi turned toward home, she tried to send back her Moabite daughters-in-law. But Ruth refused, making a bold vow: “Your God will be my God.” Whoa.
#3 Out Standing in Her Field
Why have I found such favor in your eyes? Ruth 2:10
Back in Judah, the righteous son of Rahab prayed a blessing over Ruth the Moabitess, showing favor to the virtuous young widow in his fields and at his table. Go, Boaz!
#4 Sitting Tight for Mr. Right
Praise be to the Lord, who this day has not left you without a kinsman-redeemer. Ruth 4:14
Prompted by Naomi and led by the Lord, Ruth risked everything on the dark threshing floor, trusting her kinsman-redeemer to do his part. Did he ever!
