"Every believer ought read Daughters of Hope. Here are stories of women living today who, like Paul, die daily for the furtherance of the gospel against life-threatening opposition. Oh, how I have been encouraged and challenged by their faith! This is a book that tells you how to invest in their lives in missions. It's a book that will call you to fervent and knowledgeable prayer." (Kay Arthur, CEO and Cofounder of Precept Ministries International)
"An encouraging, inspiring and challenging collection of testimonies of women who embrace our Living Hope--Jesus Christ--in nations where bearing the name of Christ can bring rejection, loss, beatings, imprisonment and even death." (Dr. Tom White, Director of The Voice of the Martyrs-USA)
"If you want to understand the reality of God working in and through the lives for thousands of women across the developing world today then read Daughters of Hope. The power of story is undeniable, and the true stories you find here will bring you understanding as well as deeply move you." (Jane Overstreet, President/CEO, Development Associates International)
"In their book Daughters of Hope Michele and Kay have challenged my thinking. This book is filled with stories of ordinary women who have surrendered their lives to Christ and allowed him to use them to accomplish his purpose. They are his servants, showing us how to live out the truth of Colossians 3:3, 'For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.' Each story is different; the common thread is how God uses lives fully devoted to him." (Diane Johnson, Director of Women's Ministries, Midland Evangelical Free Church, Midland, Michigan)
"Daughters of Hope is an eye-opening collection of stories about courageous women who are putting their lives on the line every day to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Kay Marshall Strom and Michele Rickett have done a wonderful job of representing these women and presenting, in a very riveting way, the dangers they face on a regular basis. Not only does it challenge the reader, but it also provides practical ways to become involved. I recommend it as a must-read for everyone who wants to know what God is doing in the most difficult to evangelize places in the world and how they can have a part in spreading the good news." (Bev Carey, President, Evangelical Women, Pacific Conference of the Evangelical Church of North America)
"An outcast Indian woman who suffered harsh persecution for her faith asked incredulously, 'If it doesn't cost you anything, how do you in America know what it means to be a Christian?' After reading the poignant stories Kay and Michele tell of the persecuted women of faith around the world, I asked myself that question. I wept as I read of the Nigerian woman whose husband was killed the night Muslims burned their church, or the Sudanese mother raped and killed by the authorities, or the young Moroccan believer who escaped after her father threatened to kill her. They persevered because they love Jesus. It's in these dark and difficult places of the world that women of God are demonstrating the reality of what it means to be a Christian. The heart-breaking stories awakened my heart, as they will yours, to seek justice, to pray for mercy and to thank God for the grace I so undeservedly enjoy." (Lorry Lutz, author of Women as Risk Takers for God and Women Finishing Well)
"This much-needed book provides compelling stories of the power of the kingdom of God in the lives of women suffering under the tyranny of injustice and oppression. Anyone reading this through the eyes of Christ will be motivated to take seriously the practical prayer and action steps suggested to help ordinary women become extraordinary witnesses in situations seemingly without hope." (James F. Engel, retired missions educator, writer and consultant)

This book would be excellent for a family study, group study, or individual study. Far from being depressing, it encouraged my heart to see how God is working even in the darkest places.
My eyes were opened when Kay asks a young Tunisia, "How can I pray for the church of Tunisia?"
His answer, "You want to pray for us? Then pray for yourselves. Pray for the church of America.Like many other Christians around the world whose lives are hanging in the balance, we depend greatly on you. And we are terribly afraid that arguments and splits are splintering and weakeaning you. Please, please pray for the unity of American believer. That's what we pray."
I plan to read this book again so I can remember the names and stories of each woman and repeat their stories. Never again will I look at what I take for granted the same. Daughters of Hope is a must read!
What was so compelling, was the fact that their stories are so current with what is happening around the world now. This book has certainly altered my view on the persecutions that are taking place daily against Christians world wide. Once you read the book, your outlook will forever be changed.
