From the cover of the book to the wonderful stories between the pages, you will find adventure, Gods truth and women who are fierce. I loved each story and how the author brought them to life as I read the words of these amazing women. I am glad I was able to read a book like this one that captures the bravery and desire to share God's word through the eyes of women who fought for what was right and just.
I cried as I read Mary Ann Ambroselli's account of her upbringing. She shared her pain and hurt as she had to make a very heart wrenching decision. I love the way her story will speak to many women who have or will go through the same thing. The struggles she faced to survive each day was so powerful. I have often asked if God really cared many times. When I saw those words in her story , I immediately felt an overwhelming sense of peace. I now know that I'm not the only one that questions where God is sometimes. I appreciate her sharing about a subject that for many is hard to talk about. Everything she felt was real and emotional. Anytime we do something that is against God, we feel shame, regret, guilt and a sense of worthlessness. This story is one I will hold close to my heart. She gave me insight that I lacked and a way to overcome my past.
Each story in this book is about women who are making a difference in others and sharing their testimony with strength and hope. I could share about each woman, but I want the readers to feel the impact I felt as I sat and soaked in their words. I am so thankful that we have people who are not afraid to boldly go into the world and share God's love. In this book, I believe some will find healing and peace. For others it may encourage them to do what God has called them to do.
I received a copy of this book from The BookClub Network. The review is my own opinion.
