She Believed: 12 Stories of Courageous Women of Faith Who Changed the WorldABOUT THE BOOK

Girls are world-changers! . . . And this delightful storybook proves it!

Just for the girls in your life, ages 5 and up, this collection of twelve extraordinary stories of women of faith will empower girls to know and understand how women have made a difference in the world and how much smaller our faith would be without them. Colorful illustrations complement the true stories of these twelve amazing women:Gladys Aylward, missionary to China

Catherine Booth, cofounder of The Salvation Army

Amy Carmichael, missionary to India

Fanny Crosby, blind hymn-writer

Harriet Tubman, leader of the Underground Railroad

The stories of these courageous women will encourage and inspire young girls to become the world-changers God created them to be!


She Believed is the perfect way to impress upon little girls their ability to change the world. This book offers the stories of twelve brave women who, through their courage and faith, helped make our world a better place. Two pages are devoted to each person and they include an one-page biography with an appropriate Bible verse and a fun, illustrated portrait. Many of the names are familiar, such as Harriet Tubman, Mother Teresa, and Florence Nightingale, but there are several that are not as well-known, but certainly just as important.

This is a beautiful hardcover book with easy-to-read text that targets young girls ages 5-8 and colorful illustrations that they will love.She Believed is the perfect way to share God's Word with these girls and to also encourage them to be brave and faithful!
