Biblical stories of eighteen New Testament women who Jesus encouraged, empowered, and loved.

The Women Who Met Jesus, BookHow could a man who had no wife, no children, no home, no job, no money, and wandered the hills of Judea with twelve men relate to women of his time, much less women in the 21st century?

That's the question that led author, Dorothy Valcárcel, to search for biblical women whose lives intersected with Jesus. As she explored the lives of every woman Jesus met, she discovered that they faced many of the same challenges women encounter today.

Dear Garden Friends

    Over fourteen years ago when we opened Transformation Garden to friends and invited others to join as we learned how Jesus interacted with the women in his life, we never could have imagined the thousands of people in over 192 countries that come to the Garden daily.

    It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the closing of the Garden as of December 31st. Because of continuing health issues and the economic condition in the country we find we are not able to continue. 

    We are grateful for all of our friends who have emailed and supported us through these years. We will not be accepting donations after December 31st. 

    We could not have continued without our Prayer Warriors. These dedicated people prayed for our friends who requested prayers when they found themselves in situations where they needed a little encouragement.

    So, on December 31 we will be closing the Garden gate for the last time. We ask for your prayers for health and happiness in the New Year.


                        Your friend
