Grit and Grace: Heroic Women of the Bible

Grit and Grace: Heroic Women of the Bible

Experience the grit and grace of seventeen women of the Bible through creative first-person retellings of each person’s story. This book connects preteen girls with the women of the Bible, showing them that they are created in the image of God to do mighty things in this world.
Grit and Grace is for girls who long to know where they fit in God’s kingdom, who want to know they are made for more than the frilly and frivolous, and that they can make a difference in the world around them. Through stories, reflection questions, and action ideas, the book helps readers become the gutsy, grace-filled girls God made them to be.
Caryn Rivadeneira is the author of seven books, which include titles for adults and children alike.

"Provocative exploration that gives welcome voice, attention, and ink to women often relegated to the margins of biblical stories."
Publishers Weekly

"Grit and Grace is an empowering, thought-provoking, and eminently readable book that will help late elementary to middle school children get a grander sense of how God worked through women and girls in biblical times, and how he wants to work through all his people today."

"Preteen girls can connect to the Bible through studying 17 women who have leaned into following God's voice in their lives."
