The 41 ordinary and well-known women honored in this first book in New World Library's "People Who Dare" series have shown forms of bravery that, according to editor Martin, go largely unrecognized — such as persevering in adverse circumstances, challenging tradition, showing vulnerability, fostering healing, and listening to one's heart. Concern about her children's education impelled Patty Murray (currently U.S. Senator from Washington) to run against an incumbent and win a seat in her state senate. Acting out of a deeply felt commitment to the poor, Dr. Janelle Goetcheus, along with other physicians she recruited, founded Christ House, a renovated apartment building where seriously ill homeless patients stay and receive care. After she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Laura Evans celebrated her survival by founding Expedition Inspiration, an organization that takes breast cancer survivors on mountain climbs. Cora Lee Johnson's longtime dream of starting a community sewing center became a reality when she was 62 because, although poor and uneducated, she persevered by talking about the center to anyone who would listen. Men and women both will find inspiration for their own lives in these captivating stories.

Whether you’re trying something new, enduring the grind of the everyday, or facing something you never imagined would come your way, life can be overwhelming and sometimes even scary. When that happens, how do you live brave? How do you learn to become a woman a courage? Who do you turn to as examples or mentors? This warm, honest, and encouraging devotional features women from the Bible who lived courageously despite unusual, difficult, or even frightening circumstances. From women who were called to step into leadership roles, to women who had to rely on God’s daily provision for their needs, these heroes of the Bible show you exactly how to lean into the strength of the Lord when your own isn’t enough. Featuring 40 brave women—some well-known (like Ruth, Elizabeth, Mary, and Martha) and some lesser-known (such as Shiprah, Puah, Lois, and Eunice)—this devotional will walk with you through the hardest days and leave you with the courage you need to lead, to love, to trust, and to turn to God in every situation. Each reading begins with a passage of Scripture, then dives into a woman’s story with detail and depth that illustrates exactly how much she was loved and cared for by God. It ends with an encouragement to apply the day’s lesson in your own life and a personal prayer that gets right to the heart of the matter and the heart of God. Prepare to be inspired and moved closer to the God who gives you strength and courage by spending time with some incredible women in His Word.

Book 5 in The OBSCURE Bible Study Series features seven amazing women that display admiral character traits. The eighth woman is Gomer, whose adulterous character was used to try to capture the attention of Israel because the Jews were treating God just like Gomer treated her husband Hosea.The first lesson in the book describes the courage of Jael, Heber's wife. The story is a tale of allies, friends, traitors, and mixed loyalties. The story climaxes when Jael drives a tent peg into the skull of Sisera, the commander of Jabin's army. The story of Rizpah is almost as strange as the story of Jael is exciting. Rizpah is the mother of two sons who were executed in retaliation for past bloodshed by Saul against the Gibeonites. Rizpah watches over her son's bodies to protect them from being scavenged by predators. This was a 24/7 commitment that may have lasted as long as five months.The Woman of Tekoa is recruited to go to King David with a fabricated story in order for David to realize how his treatment of his son Absalom was impacting all those around him as well as the kingdom. The lesson examines the trickery of those involved with the charade as well as David's discernment.The book then investigates the miracle of Dorcas' (Tabitha) restoration to life and asks the question, "Do you need a miracle in your life?" This is followed by the story of "the other Mary." The primary focus of this study is the Sabbath and how the rules surrounding the Sabbath should impact us in our walk with the Lord today.Shiphrah and Puah are another example of the bravery and courage of women choosing to fear God rather than obey man. These two women were in charge of the midwives who refused to kill Israel's baby boys. This provided the opportunity for Moses to be floated in the Nile, rescued, and to become the adopted son of the Pharaoh's daughter. He ultimately led his people out of Egypt.Lastly we have the story of Lydia who was a dealer in purple cloth. Lydia was discovered at a "place of prayer" by Paul and Silas. She was a follower of the Jewish religion, but God stirred Lydia to understand the truth as her "heart was opened." She was baptized and she brought her whole household to Paul for conversion. Lydia's house became home base for Paul, Silas, and his traveling group when they were in Philippi.

In 1987 and 1988, Dr. Diana Russell journeyed from the United States to the land of her birth to learn about the special role of women in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa. The fruit of her research is this extraordinary book: the first hand accounts, in their own words, of 24 courageous risk-taking women activists (portraits included). These are not only world-famous leaders like Winnie Mandela and Albertina Sisulu (although their stories are included in the book) but ordinary women who were trade unionists, members of radical organizations, student activists -- black and white, African, Indian and Coloured, young and old. Lives of Courage: Women for a New South Africa compellingly dramatizes the little-known role of women who fought apartheid and its cruel apparatus -- banning, banishment, house arrest, imprisonment, and torture -- even as they strove to keep together their beleaguered families. With rare candor, they speak of the price they and families paid for their activism, of the difficulties of being a woman in a racist and sexist society, of the terrors they had endured, and of the dreams they nourished of a new South Africa. The fighting spirit of these women, their courage and conviction in the face of a modern state's vindictiveness, shines from every page of this inspiring book.

They range from a United States senator to a Native American to a first lady. Most wore bonnets and long skirts; few had college degrees; and only a handful stepped into a voting booth. But these women spoke the same language as their sisters today. Truman's look into the past pays tribute to the courage of American women from the Revolution to the present.
