Esther Week 2 with Lydia Brownback

Episode 62 | Esther | Released February 8, 2021 | Special guest: Lydia Brownback

On today’s episode of the She Reads Truth podcast, Raechel and Amanda welcome author and Bible teacher Lydia Brownback to wrap up our two-week series on the book of Esther. The drama from last week’s reading resolves in unexpected ways, and the true hero of the story turns out to be someone who isn’t even mentioned by name! Stick around to the end of the episode for an exclusive listen to a song inspired by the book of Esther and sung by the one and only Ellie Holcomb.
