Editorial Reviews

Review

“Mary Frances is one of the most dangerous women I know! She’s not afraid to boldly go where many fear to tread — into the lives of broken women who’ve been sexually and emotionally battered. I recently had the privilege of visiting with Mary and one of the Wellspring’s beautiful beneficiaries. It was a ‘WOW!’ moment for me. It is so evident that God is pouring out His lavish love through Mary, quenching many thirsty hearts and revealing Himself as the Living Water that truly satisfies and transforms.”
- Shannon Ethridge, MA, bestselling author of the Every Woman’s Battle series

“An incredible journey of rescue and restoration! A League of Dangerous Women is what the gospel is all about…God meeting us in desperate places, remaking our hearts with stunning acts of love and grace. These amazing stories are tangible proof that nothing is too difficult for Him!”
- Louie Giglio, Passion Conferences, author of I Am Not But I Know I AM

“Let your life be blessed as you see for yourself the trophies of God’s grace.”
- Sheri Rose Shepherd, author of His Princess: Love Letters from Your King

Format: Paperback
Women's Ministry leader and founder of a recovery program for women, Wellspring Living, author Mary Frances Bowley knows well each person described in A League of Dangerous Women. With compassion rather than condemnation, following the precepts laid down in Scripture, letting her Lord relate to each distressed women He brings her, Bowley has rich experience and deep truths to share. Be prepared to be dynamited out of your rut. Our God is a God of miracles, and this is a book of miracles happening right now in the lives of desperate, terribly abused, totally lost women. Not only does the Lord save, He washes white as snow and sends the washed ones out to witness for Him.

Meet Danielle, physically, verbally, and sexually abused in childhood, as she makes a desperate bid to rise out of the mire of drug addiction and prostitution. How did she find Jesus? One desperate day, after hearing about the Lord, she opened the front door and asked Jesus to come in and be her best friend and walk with her forever. And the miracles began to happen.

Meet Tracy who went to Church yet was betrayed by the parents who took her there. The forces of darkness reached out to claim her and drive her into deathly desperation. She tried suicide, alcohol, drugs, sex, and an abortion. When nothing else helped, she called unto the Lord, and from then on, no matter how dark the way became, God continually reached out until Tracy stumbled into His arms and her miracles.

Including Danielle and Tracy, there are 14 such biographies in A League of Dangerous Women. This volume closes with a special prayer, one useable by all people, written by Tracy

This is a must-read book. If you are desperate or know one chained by desperation, here are answers.

Format: Paperback
I had the privilege of touring the Wellspring Home a few years ago while living in Metro Atlanta, Georgia, and what a wonderful, encouraging experience it was. They truly do great work there. I got this book soon after visiting the ministry, and I tucked it away for some future point, as I so often do with new books. And it certainly was a matter of the Lord's timing. I got it out a couple weeks ago and read it quite quickly, so captivating were the stories.

So many people around us are broken in one way or another. Many elements in the stories of these 14 females will strike a familiar chord. That may be unnerving, or frightening. But woven through every story, on every page of the book, is the truth of God's grace and a steady, unmistakable sense of hope. That comes through clearly in Mary Frances Bowley's writing.

This is a dangerous book. Because He is a dangerous God.
