She will then share tips and techniques for illustrating what we learn about Esther and how we can relate to her in our everyday life.


Esther’s Story

Esther’s story can rival any fiction thriller on the market – it has a hero, a heroine, a villain, a plot to overthrow the government, women's lib controversy, a nationwide beauty pageant, lots of eating, drinking & celebrating, a beautiful palace setting, irony, humor, intrigue, revenge, and suspense. In this class, Melissa will share a teaching on Esther’s story and its implications for our own lives. She will then share tips and techniques for illustrating what we learn about Esther’s story and how we can apply what we’ve learned to help us serve the Lord in our everyday life.
