Iyanifa means Mother of Wisdom or Mother of Ifa. It is the position of the High Priestess in the Ifa Orisha tradition . The Ifa Orisha tradition of Africa is thousands of years old and was so strong, it was able to survive the slave trade to go on in the new world. What didn't survive the slave trade ,but remained in Africa was the position of Iyanifa. In a world where women have lost much of their ancient mysteries to patriarchy and slavery, a tradition is presented here that went underground but did not die. Iyanifas, Iyami, and Queen mothers of Africa resurface now to continue a legacy for new generations across the globe. This book is a collection of stories, essays, and explorations of the position of Iyanifa and its resurgence in the Diaspora. Gleaned from the perspective of the elder mothers who broke the glass ceiling to reclaim the tradition , they share their divine wisdom teachings, candid personal experiences, joys, and growing pains drawn from their lives as Iyanifas and women in the tradition. This volume of work features authors such as Luisah Teish, Iyanla Vanzant, Aina Olomo and many other powerful healers, diviners, and counselors. It is offered as a gift to women in the tradition and to those interested in Woman's and African Studies to explore the path of Iyanifa and to be a resource for years to come.

God Himself made a covenant with His people and throughout the ages He has remained perfectly faithful to His covenant promises. Just as the women of the Bible experienced His faithfulness, so can believers today. The matriarchs of the faith left a legacy of timeless truth for the women who would follow. God led such incredible women as Deborah, Rebekah, Miriam and Hannah through life experiences that now offer great wisdom for the Christian life. Women of the Covenant explores the stories of eight women from Scripture. The authors also include contemporary faith stories from their experiences. These unique testimonies show meaningful application of the scriptural truth explored in each lesson. This eight-lesson study includes questions for individual preparation and group discussion. God's inspired Word includes stories of real people--with both failures and victories--that point to the redeeming work of God, experienced today through Jesus Christ. Women of the Covenant is a spiritual journey for women who carry on the legacy of faith.

Your phone is always ringing; your neighbors are silently pleading; your church is beckoning; and your community and school are begging you to respond to their needs. You want to minister to and influence those around you. But what can you do? What should you do? Everything is calling, but are you called to everything? Within God's plan for women is the secret to the wise use of your time, talents, spiritual gifts, and influence--and thus to true fulfillment. Joyce Rogers shares that secret through a study of the written Word of God, which points to Jesus--the Living Word--as the supreme example of equality of worth and submission to divine authority. Through it you'll see how God desires you to influence others and seek His wisdom to achieve a well-prioritized and balanced life. Whether you're married or single, these words will encourage you with reflections on God's wisdom and authority, and will challenge you to follow in the footsteps of your Savior.
