The Important Role Women Play in the Lives of Youth
Simply put, the role of a spiritual mother is to provide a proper example to younger women and to teach them Christian character and domestic responsibility.

Ruth's loyalty and friendship was further demonstrated by her submission to Naomi's guidance. She both loved and trusted Naomi, and diligently followed her wise instruction.

Eventually, Boaz married Ruth and their son, Obed, was the grandfather of King David.
