Guest Speaker
Mrs. Beneth Peters Jones

The special guest speaker for our time together is Beneth Peters Jones, wife and mother.

Beneth wrote and recorded the feature Sunshine on the Soapsuds for the popular radio program by the same name. Many of these articles have been compiled into three books, Sunshine on the Soapsuds, More Sunshine on the Soapsuds and Lights on Main Street. She has also written In the Best Possible Light, a handbook on Christian loveliness; Ribbing Him Rightly!, a book on Christian wifehood; Words Fitly Spoken, a booklet for public speaking; The Wilderness Within, which addresses a woman’s testings in emotions and attitudes; and Mount Up on Wounded Wings, a book for Christian women with hurtful home backgrounds. She has also co-authored With Heart and Hand, a manual for women in God’s service, and her video series, Patterns for the Christian Woman.

Much more important and treasured to Beneth than any of the “dones” noted above is God’s grace in allowing and enabling her to be a wife, mother and grandmother and a friend to her Christian sisters throughout America and overseas. In each writing or speaking opportunity God gives her, Beneth’s desire is to “come alongside” Christian women with scriptural encouragement for their daily lives.
