I have always been fascinated with the Book of Ruth, so much so that I created a personal branding workshop based on Ruth’s journey. I’m currently using the information from the workshop to write a book titled The Woman Survives and Thrives. Of course, during this process I am learning even more about her and have learned 14 Lessons from Ruth.

14 Lessons Learned

No one knows who wrote the Book of Ruth, but there is a great consensus that either Samuel, Hezekiah, or David wrote it. Written during the latter period of the time of Judges, Ruth shows how God uses simple people in ordinary situations to accomplish his perfect purpose. She is the great-grandmother of King David.

This post is simply a list. You can read the corresponding scripture here.
