For anyone who’s ever felt put down, unsure, underestimated, or overlooked, these biblical stories encourage you to recognize your own power and potential to be bold.
From the “thin slice of life” where she grew up with her family in
Appalachia to success as pastor of a large church, Rachel Billups’s life
stories show strength and grace even in the midst of doubt and
wondering. With her brand of fierce she worked through years of school
to become an accomplished pastor and mother of four. She took nothing
lying down and found that being bold was the only way to be alive. In Be Bold
she weaves her stories into the lives of biblical characters. Readers
will find redemption and insight in Sarah’s story, inspiration in Mary’s
call, and ministry and community in Paul’s letter to Timothy. For
anyone who hopes to find the fierce in their own lives, Billups’s work
leads the way. In both her personal experience and her telling of Bible
stories, Billups shows how being bold can bring you closer to God and
God’s plan for your life.
