"The 'Women Who Dare To Believe' small group study brings the stories of biblical women to life and the application questions powerfully apply to contemporary issues. This study challenges women to take action steps that produce positive change based on the truth of God's Word. It's refreshingly different from other studies--and it will capture the hearts of your group!" - Carol Kent, Speaker and Author, www.CarolKent.org, www.SpeakUpSpeakerServices.com, www.SpeakUpforHope.org
"I was privileged to preview this work before it was released and also to be present at the premier performance. It is absolutely amazing!! I laughed, I cried, and I marveled at Gods anointing so evident in the creativity and the spiritual truth portrayed. I want everyone to see it!! Bonnie and Nan...[bring] to light instruction from the scriptures surrounding the various women portrayed and the issues they faced. Not surprisingly, we face some of the same issues today as women who dare to believe in the face of a world that doesn't! - Candy Davison, Women’s Ministry Coordinator Sandy Cove Ministries Conference Center, North East, Maryland
“It never occurred to me that these women of Scripture — who I'd passed over with very little thought — had so much to teach me. What an exciting study! These vividly etched characters — these flesh and blood women of God — provide an astounding vision of the Heavenly Father at work then and now, and helped me connect the dots all the way through history from them to me, to better-understand the big picture of redemption.” - Sue Buchanan, author, speaker, cheerleader www.suebue.com

This is one women’s Bible study your group is going to love!” - Martha Bolton, Emmy-nominated writer and author of over 50 books of humor, including “Didn’t My Skin Used To Fit?”

"Women Who Dare To Believe” reminds us that it is God who lifts and sustains us in this world whatever our time in history. It is so much easier for me to believe in his love for me when I experience the answers to my prayers…just like I prayed them. I dare to believe in the Fathers love even when his good for me hurts. This study reminds me it is only by his Spirit that this is possible. He continues to work mightily in women to bring about his will and to give glory to the Father who made us for so much more than what we see. Go, girls, but only with him.” - Nancy Puryear, Director of Women's Ministry, Christ Community Church, Franklin TN

"It is interesting - usually I forget about a movie or a play within one or two days. But I thought and thought about Friday's play for about a week. I actually cried hard the next morning thinking about it - and I'm not a crier! And I did a 1.5 hour Bible time with my family Monday morning summarizing about half of it. And then Elaine burst into tears! I am so glad I bought the CD. I have listened to many of the songs over and over. - Paul Moore, Roanoke, VA
