WORKING WITH THE WORD

Barbara M. Britton

 

 

 

This has been a challenging year. With all the chaos in the world, I am blessed to have a job where I dig into Scripture. I enjoy writing Biblical Fiction where I take God’s Word and bring its wisdom to readers who may never have heard of the Bible passages used in my stories.

 

 

 

In writing Lioness, I learned about five orphaned sisters who had a strong faith in God. Their faith was so strong that they asked God for something that had never been given to girls. The girls desired to inherit their deceased father’s land. God said they were right, and He laid out inheritance laws for all of Israel. Wow! Where had I been? I am ecstatic that I discovered this story in the Bible.

 

 

 

Recently, I finished another story from the Bible set in the reign of King David. David had a lot of turmoil in his life. He was God’s anointed king and on the run from King Saul. David’s rule was mired in seduction, murder, rape, and betrayal. Some of these acts were done by his children and some were done by David when he took his eyes off of God.

 

 

 

Through the tough times, David wrote about his relationship with God. I found these songs of David to be a wonderful reminder of the strength God gives to His children.

 

 

 

In Psalm 121:1-2, we read:

I lift up my eyes to the hills—

where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord,

the Maker of heaven and earth.

 

 

 

We are told in II Samuel 22:1-3 that David sang this song to the Lord:

The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;

my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,

my shield and the horn of my salvation.

 

Songs taken from Bible verses can also encourage us in difficult times. I like the song I Will Not Be Shaken and it comes from David’s song in Psalm 16:8.

 

I have set the Lord always before me.

Because he is at my right hand,

I will not be shaken.

 

 

 

I hope you find your strength and comfort in God and in His Word. We need God’s wisdom more than ever with the uncertainty found in 2020. Now, you see why I have one of the best jobs in the world.

 

 

 

You can find the daughters of Zelophehad in Numbers 26:33, 27:1-11, 36:1-12, and Joshua 17:3-6, and I Chronicles 7:15b)

 

 

 

Book blurb for Lioness: Mahlah’s Journey

While the Israelites struggle to occupy the Promised Land of God, Mahlah bat Zelophehad is orphaned and left to care for her four sisters. But daughters of the dead are unable to inherit land, and it will take a miracle for Mahlah to obtain the means to care for her sisters and uphold the vow she made to her dying mother.

Mahlah must seek Moses, the leader of her people, and request something extraordinary—the right for a daughter to inherit her deceased father’s land. A right that will upset the ox-cart of male inheritance and cast her in the role of a rebel.

But, God is the protector of the orphan and the widow, and five orphaned daughters need His help. With God, anything is possible. Even changing man’s tradition.

 

 

DON’T FORGET TO LEAVE A COMMENT TO BE PLACED IN THE DRAWING TO WIN YOUR CHOICE OFA PRINT OR EBOOK COPY OF LIONESS: MAHLAH’S JOURNEY OR ONE OF HER OTHER BOOKS PLUS A $20 BARNES AND NOBLE GIFT CARD BETWEEN NOW AND SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12TH AT MIDNIGHT MST. (US residents only eligible for print copy)

Thanks for joining us, Terry. I like to read when the weather gets a bit gloomy.

Terry Johnson From Schroon Lake, NY At 12/12/2020 5:23:40 PM

Looks like a good book! I have plenty of time to read now!

Hey sis! Thank you so much for stopping by. Barbara has a way of taking her readers right back to Bible times!

Barbara M. Britton From Wisconsin At 12/7/2020 9:40:42 PM

Hi Caryl. It's good *seeing* you again. I'm glad you enjoyed Naomi's story. It was one of the hardest stories to write. I'm happy you joined us.

Caryl Kane From TX At 12/7/2020 7:25:34 PM

Hello Barbara, I enjoyed Building Benjamin. Biblical fiction is one of my favorite genres.

Hi Caryl. Thank you for visiting and leaving a message for Barbara.

Hi Karen. I am blessed to write Christian Fiction. You know the feeling. I'm glad you joined us.

Karen Malley From Pennsylvania At 12/6/2020 2:39:00 PM

I love the first line, Barbara - you truly are blessed to have a job where you dig into Scripture. We as readers are blessed to have talented writers like you open up our imaginations to what life may have been like for those in Biblical times. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Karen. Thank you for stopping by and contributing to the discussion.

Barbara M. Britton From Wisconsin At 12/6/2020 8:38:26 AM

Hi Debra. Yes, we are precious to God. I love in Numbers 36 where God says the girls may marry "anyone they please as long as they marry within the tribal clan of their father." God watched over the girls and protected the land meant for their tribe. I'm glad you joined us.

Debra J Pruss From OH At 12/6/2020 1:16:26 AM

Thank you so much for sharing your time and your talent. It is a good reminder that God even remembered the daughters in the inheritance of the Promised land. We are very precious to Him.

Reply by: Patti Shene

Hi Debra. Thank you for stopping by and contributing to the conversation. You are right. Our God cherishes each of us.

Barbara M. Britton From Wisconsin At 12/5/2020 8:47:00 PM

Hi Michele. It's great to have another Wisconsinite here. I remember that WWA Conference. I thinking I was working on the opening to "Lioness." I'm glad you enjoyed "Jerusalem Rising." Thanks for reading Adah's story. Have a blessed Christmas season. I'm glad you joined us.

Michele Wilder From Portage, WI At 12/5/2020 5:54:23 PM

I really enjoyed your book, Jerusalem Rising, Barbara, and remember when you read about the daughters of Zelophehad at the WWA conference. I admit thinking about your characters when my Bible reading took me through these OT passages recently. Best wishes in health and with your new books! Michele

Hi Michele. Thank you for stopping by and contributing to the discussion.

Barbara M. Britton From Wisconsin At 12/5/2020 5:18:11 PM

Hi Audrey. I'm glad you joined us. I wrote 'Lioness" and was only going to write one book on the daughters of Zelophehad. The girls didn't receive their land until Canaan was conquered, so I thought I would write two more books and give all the sisters a happily-ever-after...and their land.

Barbara M. Britton From Wisconsin At 12/5/2020 5:15:05 PM

Hi Victoria. 'Lioness" tells the story of how the sisters asked Moses to inherit their father's land. Lioness comes from Numbers 27:1-11 and Numbers 36: 1-12. If you like the girls, you can follow them through the book of Joshua until they actually get their land. Thanks for stopping by.

Barbara M. Britton From Wisconsin At 12/5/2020 4:02:44 PM

Thanks for stopping by, Amy. I enjoyed writing about these historic sisters. Merry Christmas.

Barbara M. Britton From Wisconsin At 12/5/2020 4:02:00 PM

I heartily agree, Linda! I remember stories so much better when there is meat on the bones. I will never forget the daughters of Zelophehad now. Thanks for joining us.

Audrey From Texas At 12/5/2020 3:53:32 PM

Part of a series that's also a stand-alone: the best of both worlds! :-) I love that. Thank you for writing. I enjoyed reading this feature.

Reply by: Patti Shene

Hi Audrey. Thank you for stopping by and joining the conversation.

Victoria K From Ontario At 12/5/2020 2:32:20 PM

I'm so glad a can share this book with my daughters.

Linda Horin From New Jersey At 12/5/2020 12:47:40 PM

I love biblical fiction! It brings the Bible to life and "fleshes" out the stories. May the Lord bless your research and guide your hand as you write!

Reply by: Patti Shene

Hi Linda. Thank you for stopping by and contributing to the conversation.

Barbara M. Britton From Wisconsin At 12/5/2020 10:56:09 AM

Hi Tanya. I enjoyed writing about the daughters of Zelophehad and diving into a portion of Scripture that I didn't know as well as I do know. Thanks for joining us.

Tanya Jackson From Urbana, IL At 12/5/2020 10:21:37 AM

This sounds like a very interesting read. Thanks for the chance to win.

HI Tanya. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment for Barbara.

Barbara M. Britton From Wisconsin At 12/2/2020 7:01:41 PM

Hi Linda! Thanks for joining us. I think it adds another dimension to writing when you add Scripture. That's why Christian fiction is special. I'm glad you stopped by.

Linda Klager From TX At 12/2/2020 4:25:10 PM

I love reading Biblical Fiction and especially when the author includes Scriptures from The Holy Bible in their books.

Hi Pam. You're such a great support for me. Thanks for commenting.

Barbara M. Britton From Wisconsin At 12/2/2020 11:49:12 AM

Thank you for joining us, Kristi. I'm glad you enjoy biblical fiction. I didn't know the genre existed until my first book was contracted. I thought I was writing bible-themed young adult books.

Kristi From SC At 12/2/2020 11:20:45 AM

This book sounds very interesting. I am brand new to reading biblical fiction (just recently started my first biblical fiction book). I found this site through the Goodreads group Christian Fiction Devourers. Thank you for sharing!

Reply by: Patti Shene

Kristi, I have read all of the Daughters of Zelophehad series by Barbara. I highly recommend these books. Thank you so much for stopping by..
