Egypt's Most Popular Goddess

The goddess that Egypt worshipped the most was Isis, goddess of rain and moisture, guardian of travelers and the dead. Women worshipped her as the mother of all Egyptians.She was the only goddess that spent time with her human followers. I think that I would like Isis if I were to meet her! She taught the women how to make corn and bread. She also taught them how to weave cloth and spin flax. Isis also taught her followers how to read and the importance of agriculture. Eventually Isis became the most powerful goddess of the gods and goddesses by depriving Ra of his powers. She was very deceiving, apparently! For many reasons Isis was very popular, but the biggest and most recognized was the fact that she spent time with her followers.
