Sarah Edwards (Heroes of the Faith)

Mentors don’t have to live in our community, or even in our time period. They could be people from history, men and women we can only read about. They might be from other countries or even continents, speak different languages, and have completely different lifestyles than we could ever imagine having ourselves.

Helen Roseveare (Heroes of the Faith)

Heroes of the faith are all around us — if we know where to look. Many are simply unknown to the world-at-large as they quietly struggle through a lifetime of isolation and hardship.

Bezalel (Heroes of the Faith)

Reading biographies and sharing them with you all is a great way to increase my knowledge […]

Corrie ten Boom (Heroes of the Faith)

In keeping with my focus for 2014, here is a brand new series which will (hopefully) continue throughout this year, as I read more biographies and get to better know God’s people. Corrie ten Boom wasn’t Jewish, but she stood up for those who were. She not only lent a helping hand, she almost gave her […]
