We all know the old joke about the soldier who survived being shot because the bullet hit his copy of the Book of Mormon and stopped there because "nothing makes it through Second Nephi", ha ha. Well, LisaB, after 35+ years of church membership has not only made it past Second Nephi (did she cheat and skip it?), she has actually completed the book of Alma! No way. Well, she at least got up to chapter 50 anyway. And, much to her chagrin, she has discovered an unsung heroine for our times, who has not been talked about nearly enough. Well, last time I read Alma that passage was there. In fact, come to think of it, every time I read Alma that was there. Why doesn't she get more coverage? Well, speaking quite frankly, because there is another woman, who's name we do know, who does an even better job of dealing with an abusive male: Jael. Take a look at Judges 4 and 5, Ms. Lisa B.

Thanks for tooting my horn for me, Snarker. I'm really happy with my accomplishment, but I didn't think it would be too cool to "glory in myself" online. But I guess I could have gloried in the Lord, that we received this challenge through President Hinckley.

I actually did read the whole thing front to back for the first time in my entire life, though I didn't finish til New Years Day. I plan to read it again this year.

Yep, I know about Judges. I've actually read it. But thanks for pointing out another scriptural woman not discussed enough.
