This short two-page article is aimed at single, young women. Its practical advice and wisdom will prove helpful to any person regualrly dealing with or counseling young women. Charo, together wth her husband Paul, writes this article in order to help young women use their time of singleness for God's glory. The title, Becoming Esther, is taken from a custom found in the book of Esther in which a woman would spend 18 months preparing herself physically for her husband. While certainly not advocating this practice, Charo encourages women to similarly spend their time of singleness in cultivating virtue, contentment, and usefulness in God's kingdom.
