About the grapefruit
When searching for a symbol to represent this project we found our senses delightfully led us to the juicy, yellow grapefruit. Well known for its revitalizing scent and healing capabilities, something else stood out while reading the history of this capsule of goodness: instead of growing singly, the fruits grow very close together in grape-like clusters on trees. To us this simple fact clearly represents how, as women, we work better and can accomplish more together. In order to facilitate healing, change and growth—we can’t do it alone—we need God and we need “clusters” of each other!
Like the fruit, acknowleding God in our lives revitalizes and heals us. If you notice, there are not one, but five authors in this book. It is unlikely that we have touched on every situation that women face, but it is likely that you’ll experience every emotion in Upheld. Our circumstances may be different but we are all creations of the same maker—we are women of God.
