Lioness Arising

From the Publisher:
Awaken.The lioness rises from her slumber, a magnificent image of strength, passion, and beauty. Her mere presence
commands the landscape, protects her young, and empowers the lion. In groups, lionesses become a creative and strategic force to be reckoned with, acting as one to change the world around them.

You too are a lioness.
In Lioness Arising, author and speaker Lisa Bevere offers the life and image of the lioness as a fierce and tender model for women. Revealing the surprising characteristics of this amazing creature, Lisa challenges women to discover fresh passion, prowess, and purpose.

Learn what it means to:

• be a stunning representation of strength
• fiercely protect the young
• lend your voice to the silenced
• live in the light and hunt in the dark
• raise a collective roar that changes everything

Packed with remarkable insights from nature and a rich depth of biblical references to lionesses, Lioness Arising is a call for women to rise up in strength and numbers to change their world.

Jesus is, after all, the lion of the Tribe of Judah.

We are his lioness arising.

My Review...Lisa Bevere's newest book, Lioness Arising Steams from a vision that God gave her years ago, Bevere introduces the lioness as a point of comparison to illustrate women's potential power, passion, prowess, and purpose once they are stirred awake.

When I first selected this book to review I had high hopes. While waiting for the book to arrive I was able to read the 1st chapter HERE.

Bevere speaks to the many roles of women, such being wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters of God. In addition she encourages women to be 'fierce' like a lioness in protecting all children, to use night vision to rescue those caught in darkness, to nurture and encourage other women, and to advocate for the voiceless!!

"This book introduces a change into the landscape of Christian thinking concerning women's role in ministry. It has been anticipated by countless women who have known deep down inside that they have been created to be world-changers. As a true spiritual mentor bent on helping women realize that they are God's creative answer to the problems the world is facing, Bevere shares sketches of personal experiences in her own spiritual journey. With solid biblical grounding throughout its entirety, this book will motivate women to awaken, rise up, lift their individual and collective voice and fulfill their God-given purpose to make a difference in the world."

"who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions," Hebrews 11:33
