Today in my quiet time, I asked God for some wisdom and uplifting words to soothe my weary soul. After meditating on some scriptures, I felt led to my bookshelf where Michelle's book sat. I skimmed the table of contents, wanting instantly to absorb the wisdom of these women's lives. I asked God which woman I should read about today and was led to Ruth Graham Bell. When my eyes found this quote, my heart leapt. I knew this was the piece God wanted to use to help my downtrodden heart: "Make the least of all that goes and the most of all that comes. And keep looking forward. Don't look backwards." I am incredibly grateful for this book, as it gives us access to women who have gone before us and we are able to bring them into our present communities. Though their bodies are no longer with us, their wisdom remains alive within these pages.

Think you are alone in the meager way your faith journey is playing out? or that you don't have what it takes to make a difference in the lives of others? Think again. Michelle DeRusha shares with us the stories of 50 women of faith, many of whom we either think of as spiritual giants or may not have heard about before meeting them on the pages in this book. Each one has a story that is both fascinating yet relatable. They were women just like us who said "yes" to God and left an impact on this world for good. I am finding myself encouraged and bolder in my own faith journey with each page I turn. God is using these women's stories to spur us on today. You will sense the kinship of these sisters in faith as you learn about then, not only wanting to know more about them, but more about our God. A must read for every Christian woman!

My prediction: Instant classic. Starting from the first page of the first woman, readers learn Hildegard of Bingen was the tenth child in her family, and she was dedicated to the church as a tithe when she was only eight years old. WOW! Michelle DeRusha gives readers a good look into each woman's life by highlighting unique facts and pointing us straight back to our great big God. If I could give this book six stars I would.

In this well written book, Michelle DeRusha invites us into the lives of fifty women I will never forget. This book made me realize the lengths to which God esteems women, giving them a very distinct role in the telling of His story down through the ages. It will inspire each and every reader to find their role in His story as it is not yet completed. We truly have much to learn from these heroines of the faith. I guarantee you will find yourself challenged as you read about each of these fifty women.
