Publisher's Description

These Christian women were once little girls playing with dolls, making mistakes and growing up in quite a different world. But was it that different? Irene Howat has researched the lives of these famous women of God and draws out lessons we can all relate to, especially youngsters today.

Ida Scudder (Missionary in India), Betty Green (Co-founder of MAF), Jeanette Li (Evangelist and Bible teacher in Communist China), Mary Jane Kinnaird (Founder of the YWCA), Bessie Adams (Co-founder of CLC), Emma Dryer (Co-founder of Moody College), Lottie Moon (Missionary in China), Florence Nightingale (Pioneer in Health Care), Heanrietta Mears (Pioneer in Children's Ministry), and Elisabeth Elliot (Missionary to the Aucas).

Find out how Mary Jane Kinnaird prayed and helped young women; Emma Dryer studied astronomy and became a Bible teacher; Florence Nightingale became a nurse and was useful to God; Lottie Moon thought Missionaries were silly and then became one herself; Ida Scudder changed her mind and then changed India; Henrietta Mears dreamed big and wrote books; Bessie Adams became a missionary in a horse-drawn caravan; Betty Green flew planes in World War II; Elisabeth Elliot's husband was killed but she forgave his murderers and Janette Li became a Christian and told her own Chinese people about the one true God.

Editorial Reviews

This is a wonderful book - in fact it's a wonderful series. Irene Howat writes with a real warmth and insight. People that you have never met come alive on the page. Christian legends and unsung heroes all become friends you can understand and look up to. In a world where role models of real integrity are few and far between the Lightkeeper's series fills the gap!
If you like this, you'll love this: Jim Elliot - He is no fool. Elizabeth Elliot's husband was killed along with four others during a missions trip to the Auca Indians. Once you've read her story in Ten Girls who made history, read his in this new Torchbearer title.
