E - Elizabeth (The Mother who Believed In Miracles)

When the archangel Gabriel, approached Zechariah and told him, that his barren “wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to call him John.” (Luke 1:13), He was skeptical because they were both advanced in age. However, Elizabeth was overjoyed and said, “The Lord has done this for me… In these days he has shown his favor and taken away my disgrace among the people.” (Luke 1:25).

R - Rebekah (The Mother who Followed God’s Promise)

Rebekah abetted her son Jacob in receiving his father's blessing and Esau’s birthright disguised as Esau. Although Jacob was hesitant to follow through with his mother’s plan, fearful he’ll bring down a curse on himself by tricking his father, Rebekah responded with confident “My son let the curse fall on me. Just do what I say” (Genesis 27) knowing that she is following God’s promise who told her in Genesis 25, “Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated” (Genesis 25).
