From the Publisher
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.
Help readers become the gutsy, grace-filled girls God made them to be
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.
Stories, reflection questions, and action ideas
"Sidebars connect the entries with their biblical antecedents, and closing questions and prayer prompts encourage further reflection. A provocative exploration that gives welcome voice, attention, and ink to women often relegated to the margins of biblical stories." --Publishers Weekly
"A 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." --Mutuality

I have a thing for first sentences and Rivadeneira does not disappoint. Here are a few: The chapter about Leah begins, ‘I have a complicated family.” I burst out laughing. The Rahab chapter (certainly tricky to maneuver), “My house was a good place to hide.” Understatement of the year! And finally, in the one on my favorite biblical sister duo, Martha says about Mary, “Ugh. My sister is driving me nuts. Again.” I realize that is three sentences, but it succinctly helps readers to de-saint Mary a bit and instead tells the true story of an annoying little sister.
Finally, I loved that Rivadeneira calls girls (and the adults reading with them) to be curious and ask questions about the women of the bible. When I read it to my granddaughters, I want them to see that they can be the grace-filled and yet gutsy girls God meant them to be.
Thank you immensely for writing this book and gifting our world with your talent from above. May God continue to bless and guide your work.
