This course explores the concepts of faith and wisdom; focusing on enriching stories of women from many countries, faith backgrounds, and time periods throughout history. These women's friendships with God are diverse and their lives serve as excellent role models for the young women of today. Students will be challenged to explore and reflect upon their own evolving relationship with God and the meaning of that relationship with respect to their personal life choices and vocations.
