Hank’s Last Goodbye

He had one more person to see before he left for Cotonou the next day. Ashley. Everyone had remarked how she would be a perfect pastor's wife and he had been inclined to agree with them but there was only one problem--he wasn't in love with her. And for him, marrying someone he didn't love …

Huldah

It's interesting that when Huldah is mentioned in the Bible, she is introduced first as a prophetess and then as Shallum's wife. Her relationship and ministry to God clearly took precedence over her marriage. It was the same for Deborah who was a judge of Israel and a prophetess (Judges 4:4) Huldah's husband was the …
