Author Marianne Widmalm has been writing for The Times of Israel website about the Holy Spirit, educating many readers. Her recent article is about Lady Wisdom who is described repeatedly throughout the Old Testament scriptures and believers are encouraged to seek her earnestly. Unlike many of today's Christian teachings about Wisdom, Marianne personifies Her as part of the divine trinity which was Her given attributes in the Old Testament, being present and helping with the creation of the world. Check out her latest article here.
