In their ongoing series looking at strong and fierce women who are remembered as heroes for all in the Bible, pastors Erica and Steve welcome a new voice to the table, a fellow colleague in ministry Sarah, to look at two stories of strong, courageous women, and the roles they played in keeping God's people safe and on their way to freedom in the story of the slavery in Egypt and the Exodus.  Two of the women in today's conversation, midwives named Shiphrah and Puah, refused to do what Pharaoh said and ended up saving lives of countless Hebrew baby boys, and another woman in our conversation, Miriam, is a leader alongside Moses and Aaron through the wilderness days, and is remembered as someone important for God's people despite times of doubt and jealousy in her life, too.  What we are continuing to discover here in these conversations is how many different women are lifted up in Scripture as heroes and examples, not just for who they gave birth to or married, and not just for their meekness and manners, but for actions of courage, grace, and character.  Join us today for the story of Miriam and the Midwives
