Rachel may have been beautiful and favored. But she was self centered--very. She thought only of her self. The Mandrakes (she even trades her husband). She blames Jacob for her infertility. She still worships idols that promote fertility. She had a one track mind--She was shallow and her dreams did not come true (she had only two sons after much dilemma and drama--she never received the honor she so desperately sought. Leah did.

Thanks for the comment on my blog, Whitney, and for letting me know about this article. While of course there are always many ways to look at a scriptural story (looking at the other comment, for example), your post has given me some food for thought about myself, and how sometimes I sell myself short with my own self-doubt and self-criticism. It's something I have been working on, but it can be hard to overcome those negative thought habits. It seems to me that women can easily fall into these traps, no?

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
