Empowered: A New Book for Girls!
I’m so excited to finally announce this new book, coming on April 1st! Empowered is a collection of biographies featuring 11 faithful women who were strengthened by God to live out lives of faith. It’s geared toward girls between the ages of 8 and 14.
The stories in Empowered are about faithful women, but even more about a steadfast God. Girls don't have to do the things these women have done to live a life of purpose; my hope is that by making a direct connection to their daily lives, readers will have a bigger and a more personal view of their Father and His love for them.
The same God who was faithful to give Corrie ten Boom the love she needed to forgive her prison guard can help girls love the unlovable bullies at school. The love for Jesus that compelled Sophie Scholl to sacrifice her life for a higher cause can empower a young girl who sees injustice in the world around her. In a culture where the youth see value in terms of Instagram likes and viral videos, the life of Pandita Ramabai will show the value of humble worship.
Empowered flips the popular idea of what it means to be a strong girl on its head, showing that real power comes from our loving Father through His Son and removing the pressure girls may feel to conquer the world on their own.
