FREE Women of the Bible Coloring Page-Dorcas. Dorcas appears in only one story in the Bible, but what a story and a legacy she left us! In Acts 9:36-43, we read that she was, “always doing good and helping the poor”. We don’t know her situation – if she was a widow herself, if she had a family, or if she struggled financially. What we do know is that she gave of her time and her talents to serve the people around her.
