"Girls and young women today receive many powerful messages about what it means to be female. From Disney princesses to teen pop stars, these 'icons of femininity' can obscure God's message of love and identity for young women. Christian communities have not always been proactive in ensuring that girls receive an identity derived from Scripture. That is why I am excited to see Rachel Weaver and Anna Haggard create a children's book series that recounts and honors the women of Scripture. In every story, we see how a woman responded in faith to God's call on her life and was used by Him for incredible purposes. As parents and churches use this book series for instruction, I see many girls responding to God in faith and being used by Him to reach the world with the gospel. We've waited for a series like this for a long time, and I'm so glad it's finally here."

"As a mother longing to impart the knowledge and strength of biblical women to my daughter, I truly wish this resource was available for us during her young formative years. Making the truth of God's Word understandable and applicable to young girls can have the power to change a generation. Thank you, Rachel and Anna, for filling the gap with this series."
Beth Koser Schwartz, women's minister at Saddleback Church
"I can't wait to give these books to my own tinies! If you've ever wondered where the women of Scripture are in the children's book section, this book is your bright and bold and gorgeous answer."
Sarah Bessey, author of Jesus Feminist and Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith
"Scripture is filled with stories of women who are role models of faith, intellect, and resolve, characteristics I see in my wife and daughter, as well as in the entrepreneurial women we serve around the world. It is exciting to see a book series that shares biblical stories of women who are leaders in their homes, businesses, and communities. Called and Courageous Girls is perfectly timed and expertly positioned to reach the littlest leaders, those whose characters are being shaped to look like Jesus. The series fills a gap in children's literature. We must share these stories, and I am thrilled to enthusiastically support Called and Courageous Girls."
