Marianne5 Stars Out Of 5Living history with notable women deserving of recognitionOctober 19, 2020MarianneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Another fabulous book from Shirley Raye Redmond! Seasoned educator Charlotte Mason says history should be taught with "living books," instead of dry text books. Courageous Worldchangers fits that bill. It's alive with interesting tales of women who truly deserve recognition. My two elementary aged sons excitedly asked me to read about this hero or that hero, as we jumped through the stories at our own pace.
Pam H.5 Stars Out Of 5Courageous World ChangersJanuary 23, 2020Pam H.What a great gift of encouragement! Showing young girls today that the courageous world changers they're reading about were once young girls just like them. It was a joy to read! I also bought copies for my granddaughters and my great niece. I'm sure it will be an encouragement to them just as it was to me. Loved, loved, loved it!! Thank you, Shirley Raye, for using your gift for God's glory!!
Bev5 Stars Out Of 5Uplifting and Inspiring Stories of FaithJanuary 23, 2020BevQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Courageous Women of Faith: 50 True Stories of Daring Women of God, , Shirley-Raye Redmond's latest book, is an inspiration for all readers, but especially for young girls. I had planned to read it over a few day's time, but once I started reading it, i finished it in one sitting. I just couldn't put it down. These remarkable Christian women showed incredible bravery, grit, and determination to serve others in their faith, often at their own peril, and left the world a better place for their efforts. The short biographies are filled with intriguing quotes and personal gems that make the book come alive. With its enticing and colorful illustrations, the book is a visual treat and a very accurate historical record of what fifty dedicated women accomplished for their fellow men and women. It would be a wonderful gift for any reader and again, the younger generation. The "power of one" has never been so clearly exemplified as in Shirley-Raye Redmond's book and is such an encouragement to anyone who has ever had a dream of helping others.
Emily5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful, inspirational, and great conversation starterJanuary 21, 2020EmilyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I knew right away that I would love this gorgeous book, but I wasn't sure how my nine-year-old daughter would react. She typically reads fiction, so she may not have picked it on her own. However, the beautiful artwork easily drew her into the text, and the after reading about the first two women together, she begged to continue reading on her own. That's when I knew it was a hit! Later I caught her scanning the table of contents for the names of women she recognized (Susan B. Anthony, Bethany Hamilton), but she was equally excited to discover the stories about new heroines such as Elisabeth Elliott and Corrie ten Boom. I think that the brevity of the stories gives girls just enough to spark precious mother/daughter conversations and whet their appetite for deeper research. I'd can't wait for a companion book I can share with my sons sometime in the future.
I received this book free from the publisher and the author. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
Sharon5 Stars Out Of 5A Terrific Book!January 21, 2020SharonShirley Raye Redmond's writing is easy, friendly, comfortable. From Jane Austen to Mahalia Jackson, Harriet Tubman to Bethany Hamilton, and so many more, Courageous World Changers encourages me to learn more, and to seek to be more of the woman God has called me to be. Buy a copy, gather your family around you, and read these faithful women's stories aloud. This book is well worth your family's time!
