Good hopeful message that whenever things look gloomy, there is always hope. With prayer and unity we are strong

A small detail about Mordechai

Est 2:7 tells us Hadassah was the daughter of Mordechai's uncle, making her his cousin, not his uncle. Great study brother!

Exceeded expectation!

Was drawn to this experience today through a dear friend and her email....simply a verse from Book of Esther. As I read the verse, I quested for reading the Book of Esther... which reminded me of Hamentashen and Purim, Finding this website, opens a recommitment of faith for me. and fresh understanding.
