Description : “Big Girls Don’t Cry, But We Do” is a book that will teach women and girls alike all over the world to encourage themselves in tough times. Women should not see crying as a negative or shameful thing, but to learn from the lessons that each tear has taught them. God has given women tears as a way to express her joy, sorrow, pain, disappointment, love, loneliness, grief and even pride which often comes before a fall. According to Psalm 30:5, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy will come in the morning”. God tells us that our sorrow will come, but it will not remain with us for long. There are many characters in the bible like Ruth and Ester who had to suffer, but great were their rewards in the end. Ruth was poor and left her country to follow her mother-in-law, however, she was faithful and God blessed her with a Spiritual and not to mention, rich husband who was a good provider. Likewise, Ester, a Jewish mother-less girl, was obedient to God and became a highly respected queen. I am sure that these women shared some tears of sorrow for a season; in the end they shared tears of joy. I want to encourage you, not to give up on your dreams or your goals because if you have faith the sides of a mustard seed, you will become winners in the end!
