I met LaTan Roland Murphy at the Asheville Christian Writers Conference in February 2016. As a native Virginian G.R.I.T. S. girl (Girl Raised in the South), I felt an instant connection to this Georgian peach. LaTan inspired me to take bold and courageous steps forward in my personal life and in writing.
Through the stories of eleven heroic women of the Bible, LaTan Roland Murphy illustrates their diverse forms of courage in the soft-spoken and the bold. Woven into each chapter, LaTan Roland Murphy shares her personal struggles and insecurities. Murphy’s ability to balance the weightiness of the loss of her brother with the humor of her fear of snakes exemplifies her transparent overlay of warmth and wit throughout the book.
Courageous Women of the Bible is a book is for real women facing current culturally relevant topics. If you can answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then this book is for you.
Do I struggle with finding the courage to lead my family or surrender my loved ones to God?
Am I fearful of rejection?
Do I desire to live generously, but struggle with limited resources?
Have I ever struggled with doing the right thing even when my spouse or others do not?
Do I question if I have the courage required to have a baby amidst great odds, pressure, and uncertain times?
Courageous Women of the Bible: Leaving Behind Fear & Insecurity for a Life of Confidence and Freedom, is a treasured book to draw closer to Jesus and step out in faith with bold courage LaTan taught me several years ago.
