Ruth, the young Moabite widow, had noticed the deep faith of her mother-in-law Naomi and chosen to come into full covenant with Naomi’s love, the one true God and husband of Israel. God’s amazing grace provided her with a new human love as well. United with her new husband Boaz, Ruth became King David’s great grandmother and part of Jesus’ Royal Messianic line. During this retreat for women, encounter your own kinsman redeemer, a true love story at the deepest level.
