PROGRAM 7:30-8:30pm – Pretty is as Pretty Does (Anita) [Abigail, Leah, Bathsheba]

~ Abigail was a beautiful woman and that's all Nabal, her first husband (a brute and a fool), saw in her. Yet when Abigail came to a dangerous crossroads, we  discover being pretty wasn't her greatest attribute.  

~ Leah stood in the shadow of her sister's beauty, wanting something she was never going to have. She felt invisible. The truth was, she was far from invisible to God.  

~ It's tough being a military wife - a young and lonely Bathsheba made a costly mistake.
