Women of Valor Week 5 // Rachel

05. Rachel

Welcome to the fifth week of our Summer Bible journaling challenge, Women of Valor. Today, we will be studying and journaling Rachel’s story from the Book of Genesis. Please note that, because this is the last woman of Genesis who we will study, there will be a one-week break before we begin studying Miriam and other women of the Old Testament. This short pause will allow you to catch up or take a breather before we continue with our study.

This week’s reading: Genesis 29:9-31; 30:1, 22-26; 31:1-3, 17-21, 33-35; 35:18-20, Ruth 4:11

This week’s journaling focus: Ruth 4:11

Still, her story is not without sadness: more than anything, Rachel wanted a child, but for years she had to watch her sister Leah have children while she stayed barren.

Because the stories of Rachel and Leah are so intertwined, last week we were able to see parts of Rachel’s story through Leah’s perspective. Today is a continuation of last week’s readings in more ways than one. We will read about Rachel’s life, but also about her legacy and that of Leah: how they intertwined, and the roles they played in the future of God’s people.
