Call Me “Michal”

As I’m reading through the Old Testament, I came across a familiar story, the story of Michal. Now you might say, “Who’s Michal? Don’t you mean “Michael, the archangel?” No, I mean Michal, the younger daughter of King Saul. Michal is presented as more of a secondary character in the lives of Saul and David. However, when I read her story recently, I was struck at how so many of us women are also Michal.
