What Others are Saying
I absolutely love this book - it's fun, it's relatable, and with its vibrant illustrations and energetic prose, it's so readable. What a gift it is to be able to share this inspiring story and much-needed role model with the young girls in my life. -Michelle DeRusha, author of 50 Women Every Christian Should Know: Learning from Heroines of the Faith
What a beautiful brave story of an ordinary girl turned into a gutsy servant of Jesus. Girls everywhere will be inspired to become like Gladys Aylward after they finish. Engaging and inspiring. -Mary DeMuth, author of 150 Quick Questions to Get Your Kids Talking
As soon as I started reading this book, I knew it was a godsend to a generation of young ladies desperate to know that God still can and will use them for great things. In Gutsy Girls, Amy L. Sullivan does a magnificent job of sharing the true story of Gladys Aylward and how a nobody by the world's standards turned out to be one of the "gutsiest" women ever. Gutsy Girls truly is a clarion call to our daughters to be courageous world changers. This book needs to find itself on our daughters' nightstands everywhere! -Kristi Bailey, homeschooling mom of four, former public school teacher, and Administrator of the North Point Homeschool Co-op.
