When Others Shuddered: Eight Women Who Refused to Give Up is the story of eight women called to serve God and who, in doing so, changed the world. They lived at the turn-of-the-century, rubbing shoulders with the well-known men of their time like John Rockefeller, Marshall Field, and Dwight Lyman Moody.
Each of these women was unique. They were single and married, black and white, wealthy and poor, beautiful and plain, mothers and childless. Yet, each felt called to make a difference and to do something - to meet a pressing need in her world.
These women wanted to live lives less ordinary. Their stories inspire us to follow God's calling in our own lives. They teach us that each individual person can make a difference. These eight women will show you how God can use your life to change the world.
"Warning: This book might just change your life. These women will inspire you to ask God that your life might count for His kingdom—whatever the cost. No woman is too young or too old, too poor or too rich to become a mighty vessel in the hands of the Lord. “Here am I Lord send me!”
