As an English teacher and a lover of the written word, I throughly enjoyed the fact that she was able to take the metaphor of the lioness and develop it fully, weaving Scriptures throughout her book, showing me the truths of this concept. Once I was able to finish reading and close this book, I was inspired anew; I could see that I needed to redirect my thinking to be intentional, powerful, and visionary, according to the Word of God and not my narrow-mindedness of "reality" versus having the eyes of faith.

Will you listen and heed the roar of your sisters in the field? We are calling you to unite and join us as we redeem the time and change our world for the Glory of God!
