Singing through the night Oct 15, 2009
This book really convicted me as a believer about how lax and sometimes insincere my walk is with our Lord. Theses women go against ALL odds to worship him and at times I struggle to read one of my many Bibles. This is a wake up call!
Every Christian Woman should read this book May 4, 2008
This is an amazing, uplifting book. If this doesn't help you realize God's amazing grace that multiplies in time of need, nothing will. It is also helpful in giving a fresh perspective on your own trials and troubles, which are often minor compared to what these women have endured. It was very inspiring!
Count your blessings..... Dec 29, 2007
As an American, as a Christian, and as a free human being, this book cuts to the heart. The sorrows, losses, abuses, and fears that these women face are so great.....and yet they can praise God and wait, endure, hope, and love in the midst of it all. If ever discontentment enters one's mind.....they should read this book and be convicted and encouraged at the same time. If one is ever at a loss for what they should pray, read this book and you will know. Every chapter is coupled with questions and supporting Scripture. Your life will become more informed, your faith strengthened, and your life enriched after reading this book.
inspiring book Oct 11, 2007
This book is a window into the worlds of women in cultures that persecute the church and how they have dealt with different hardships. The stories are inspiring, make me appreciate my freedom, and encourage me to take more risks for God. As group of women, we are reading this together and the book contains questions at the end of chapters that help us to go deeper into what we believe and are challenged by.
