Most of the stories in the Bible are about boys and men, but this book offers the personal accounts of ten remarkable, faith-filled women. Sometimes, we don't even know their names. But we know how their lives were changed by their faith.

Some of these women--from both the Old and New Testaments--may already be familiar to you. Here, their stories are freshly told, each from the first-person point of view. They are bound to inspire children, parents, and educators alike.

"Most traditional Bible stories focus on the men who followed Jesus. This book highlights ten women who played equally important roles in the Bible story and biblical history. [..] Some of the women are familiar figures; others are less well known. [...] Early grades will especially enjoy these tales of Noah’s wife, Rachel, Miriam, Ruth, Mary of Nazareth, Martha and Mary, the Canaanite women, Pilate’s wife, Mary of Magdala, and Lydia." ― Annette B. Thibodeaux, Catholic Library World

"I love [...] the range of women represented. [...] These stories are detailed and imaginative, fleshing out the ones in the Bible. [...] This creativity makes even the most well-known of the stories feel fresh and engaging. [...] While the subject matter makes me think of girls [...], this is a book that boys can learn a lot from, too. [...] It's always good for boys to read stories about strong women." ―Ginny Kubitz Moyer, Random Acts of Momness
