Summary

Summary

Mother Goose, the Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel. How often have we read these tales, told the stories, seen the movies and cartoons? And how often have we dreamed of a fairy-tale life for ourselves? Of course, most lives are nothing like fairy tales. But does that mean that fairy tales are only for children?Mother Goose Meets A Woman Called Wisdom takes classic fairy tales and Bible stories and gives them a modern spin. Acknowledging that the timeless messages we desperately need to hear are often obscured by images and metaphors we just can't understand, Linda Hollies gets these messages across by telling stories we can relate to today. Her colorful sense of humor and engaging style make this book enjoyable to read and truly meaningful, and her practical insights allow us to apply the wisdom of these stories to our everyday lives.
