From Barbara Britton's Lioness: Mahlah's Journey

 

Tell us your name and a little bit about yourself
I'm the firstborn of my father, Zelophehad. He has entrusted me to care for my sisters and make sure his name carries into the Promised Land.
Where do you live, and why do you choose to live there?
I share a tent with my four sisters. The top is a bit lopsided, but with five active girls in the family, a little droop isn't noticed.
What is a quirk of your personality that people don't know?
Quirk? I don't have time to be quirky. Have you raised four sisters?
Who chronicled your story, and why do you think he/she picked you?
It's about time someone picked our story. We have been overlooked for Vacation Bible Schools for generations. David had an army behind him when he faced Goliath. I had four quaking sisters and an angry mob. I don't know how Barbara found us, but I am thankful our story is being told.
What obstacles did you overcome in order to reach your happily-ever-after?
Men can be stubborn. Not only the leaders of the tribes of Israel, but my neighbor Reuben who stole my heart when we were children. I had to challenge Moses for my father's land. Reuben had to wake up to the girl living behind the next tent flap. And I had to keep my sisters marching in the same direction. My happily-ever-after is in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But Reuben is the honey on the raisin cake.
Tell us about your special lady (or your knight in shining armour, if you're the heroine). What makes him/her so special?
Reuben ben Nemuel is a brave fighter for our tribe of Manasseh. He is a compassionate father to his son, Jonah. And he supported my sisters and I after he woke up to our plight–God had something to do with his eye-opening wisdom.

The first time you saw your special person, what did you think? Was it love at first sight or did he/she have to grow on you?
I have lived by Reuben all of my life. He is ruggedly handsome, but it's his brave heart that I have always admired.
