"Redefined brings the reader into the hidden depths of Biblical and modern women's hearts and reveals the transformation of the King on His daughters. Through the first person narratives of broken women who find their Savior, Bolden allows us to find ourselves in them and lay hold of the promises Jesus desires for us." - Nicole Bernard, Executive Director, Founder of Shield NC.
"The powerful message of Redefined is God values women. While our church culture can often treat women as second class citizens, Melissa, through an in depth study of Gods word, encourages women to embrace the power, the gifts and the wisdom God has lavished upon them. Redefined reminds us God has purpose for His daughters within His redemption story.
As one who has been personally impacted by Melissa's teaching on identity, I trust her teachings. Her dedication to studying the Bible and its history is expressed in this book. Melissa desires to call Gods daughters back to who our Creator says we are despite the lies we have believed." - Christian Reyes, Founder of Hashtag She Laughs.

"Melissa Bolden uses powerful story-telling to bring alive compelling Biblical truths that fortify a believers identity in Christ. Faithfully she has drawn from her experiences of serving the local church body through public speaking, teaching and personal coaching. The insights expressed in this book are not only from her time alone with the Lord in the secret place, but also from the deep and meaningful conversations from women that she ministers to on a regular basis.
Through a clear and logical progression, Melissa will empower women to see the beliefs and practices that are holding them back from stepping into their fullest potential in God. These Scriptural truths will give you a new found confidence and courage to face difficulty and believe God for answers, breakthrough and provision. You will make a connection with these women from the Bible in a way like you never have before, causing you to realize just how much you have in common with them and how much you are in need of the same encounter they had with their Lord." - Bryan Finley, Senior Leader Hope Chapel Apex.

In her new book, Redefined, you will rediscover the Jesus of the New Testament in an invigorating and powerful manner. She takes you on a journey through time and introduces you to the lives that were changed with just one touch by Jesus.

This is a must-read for anyone who just wants more of Jesus!" - Carol McLeod, Author, Speaker and Teacher Founder of CarolMcLeod Ministries
"Hebrews 13:8 says God is the same yesterday, today and forever; but if we are honest with ourselves, we sometimes fall for the lie that His love and power were extra-present in "biblical times". Redefined puts these lies to rest. Melissa begins with the Bible stories we all know, then shares echoes from modern day through redemptive, real-life testimonies of a good God who never changes. Read and be reminded that He is still the God of miracles and no one is disqualified from His touch." - April Harrison, Founder of More of God
"Are you desperately needing a touch from the Lord? You wont be disappointed as you journey with Melissa Bolden and her new book Redefined. She brilliantly unpacks the backstories of hurting women whether they be from biblical times or the modern day. Our Jesus is still the same Messiah today as He was in ancient days. He yearns for all His girls to come to Him and receive His blessings. As you read the pages of her anointed book, start seeing yourself the way God see you--accepted, approved, valuable and free. You will be amazingly inspired to receive from your Savior. All you have to do to receive His touch is….. dare to believe!
