May 1 st : And I start my women of the bible post.
Seems fitting for Mother's Day that I explore the wonderful women of Faith in the Bible. Exodus 1 : 15-17
The word derives from Old English mid, "with" and wif, "woman", and thus originally meant "with-woman", that is, the person who is with the mother (woman) at childbirth. The word is used to refer to both male and female midwives.
