  1. Hi Lumingo,

    Great idea for your storybook. I like how you gave a good synopsis of each story in the Bible that you will be going into. As a Muslim, all of these stories are in the Quran as well, but their same names are transliterated to Arabic. For instance, Jacob is Yaequb in Arabic and God is Allah in the Arabic language. Thus, even someone who may be Christian but speaks Arabic may refer to God as Allah which I think is one area that many people may not realize. Also, the stories are told in a different perspective in some aspects such as when discussing Hagar and Ishamel. The synopsis you give on each person really helps for me and maybe others who are less familiar with these stories. I wonder what exactly your version of the story is. What exactly is your twist on the story that is different from the original? What does it mean when you refer to God's grace being seen through these stories? Overall, great intro! Can't wait to read some of your stories!

  2. Hi Lumingo!

    I think this is a great topic for your storybook project! I loved the biblical unit because of my knowledge of the bible and my faith, so your story title grabbed my attention right away! As a Christian, I am very familiar with these bible women, but I have never studied them in terms of their loyalty! The connected pairs idea is great too because I am currently doing a study over the entire bible and it blows my mind knowing how many things intertwine and overlap! Are all the stories going to be told from each of their own perspectives? Are you going to share any overlap between the characters as they weave in and out of different books? Also, I loved how you laid out all six women and gave a brief description on them. For those who are unfamiliar with the Bible, this will be very helpful! Are you going to add any creative twists to these stories or are they going to be straight retellings? I am so intrigued and I can't wait to see what you do with this project! Good luck!

  3. Hi Lumingo!
    I really love your introduction and how you gave some background info into each of the characters. You set up the introduction well so that we know what to expect in the coming chapters of your story book. I also grew up in a religious family and did bible study every week. I, like you, have always thought about bible stories in different perspectives. I can't wait to see what you plan to write for your stories. It's a great idea writing these stories in the connected pairs you've chosen. Will you be writing a perspective for each person in the pair? That would be pretty cool to see! Also, I noticed on your very last page for Sarah and Hagar that the title on the actual page says Mary and Martha. I wasn't sure if that was a mistake or not. Good luck with the rest of your storybook! It seems like you have a pretty good idea of what you have planned for it so good job so far.

  4. Hi Lumingo!

    I really loved your introduction! I also grew up in a very religious household (my parents named me after Leah), and, since my father was raised Jewish, I had aspects of both Judaism and Christianity emphasized. I especially love that you've chosen to focus on Old Testament women, because they really do show so much strength and character, but are also so often overlooked. That really applies to Hagar! I'm very excited to see where you go with her story, since there's so little that we know about her. I think it was a really good choice to tell the stories as pairings - like you said, you can't really tell one of these women's stories without telling the other's. Overall, I think you have a great website design and introduction (especially the helpful summaries you gave for each character!), and I'm looking forward to seeing where this project takes you.

  5. Hello, I enjoyed your introduction and found it very helpful. The descriptions and background of the characters will make it much easier to read and understand your stories. I think that was a nice touch. I also read your story, Rachel and Leah. I really enjoyed your story and it is really crazy how times have changed. Were these two different stories that were merged together or were they originally linked? One thing that I would suggest is maybe add some more emotion into the story to make it feel more real. I personally have a sister and we compete all the time and it can get really heated so maybe add some more of those elements. Overall, I really enjoyed your story and thought your interpretation of this story was very creative.
