100 Extraordinary Stories of Prayer for Courageous Girls
Praying girls are world-changers!
And this deeply inspiring storybook proves it!
Just for the girls in your life, ages 8 and up, this collection of 100 extraordinary stories of praying women of faith–from the Bible, history, and today–will empower girls to know and understand how praying women have made a difference in the world and how much smaller our faith (and the biblical record) would be without them.
Featuring full-page, colorful illustrations alongside the true stories of praying women like Anna, Esther, Hannah, Anne Bradstreet, Shirley Dobson, Lottie Moon, Ida Scudder, Corrie ten Boom, Phillis Wheatley, and dozens more, the stories of these 100 women will encourage and inspire girls to become the praying world-changers God created them to be!
why we like it…
Our ten-year-old daughter especially is a huge fan of the Courageous Girls collection from author Jean Fischer and Barbour Publishing. She’s been a reluctant reader for years but this collection has been a huge breakthrough for her. Since she was so taken with 100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls, we purchased The Bible for Courageous Girls for her birthday. She has been pouring over the scriptures and she has been equally excited to dive into these 100 stories of prayer.
As a parent, I am so encouraged to see her enthusiasm for reading God’s Word grow as she learns about women of faith from our history and the headlines. The author has again highlighted women from a wide range of time periods, countries, backgrounds, and professions. Rather than placing these women on a pedestal, their stories are written in an inspirational and relatable manner which encourages the young readers to join the ranks of prayer warriors across the ages.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
