Women were an integral part of Jesus' life and ministry as described in all four Gospels, and they are integral to the life of the church wherever Christianity has spread. In whatever position they found themselves, whether queens or slaves, they lived for their Saviour and sought to bring others to Him.
Her-Story brings together well-known names, such as Fanny Crosby and Joni Eareckson Tada to lesser known Christians from across the centuries, in 366 devotions. The recurring theme - their love for Jesus.

Review quote

How fascinating to examine the lives of Christian sisters from antiquity! Their steps call and inspire today's women to leave footprints along the same trail. -- Mary A. Kassian Diana Severance has written the most beautiful daily devotional book for women: Her-Story. She combines a collection of women throughout Christian history who have offered their lives, work, and personal sacrifice for Jesus Christ and His ministry. Beautifully-written, a reader (woman or man!) will daily read, worship, and learn about many Christians, both well-known and lesser known. I highly recommend Diana Severance's new book, published by Christian Focus. -- Denise George What a gift to add to daily bible reading! Diana Lynn Severance has summarized a wealth of research on hundreds of edifying lives lived for Jesus without sentimentality and with deep effect ... This is a book to treasure and share with all. -- Kathy Manchester Her-Story provides a daily walk with Christian women from the 1st century to our present day. But as the reader takes this journey, we are ultimately taught and reminded not so much about women, but rather about our great God. -- Jane Tooher Never have I read a daily devotional book that is a page-turner. This one is. Drawing on real life stories from New Testament times to now, the author sheds light on the convictions, commitments, struggles, joys, and yes sorrows of some 365 women who have trusted and served Christ. Read this for new insight into church history, fresh gratitude for God's glory in women's lives, and strong motivation to aspire to the levels of faith, love, sacrifice, and service on display in these fascinating vignettes. This gives not a sugary but rather a protein boost to pondering Scripture, to prayer, and to worship. -- Robert W. Yarbrough ... Reminds us of the 'great cloud of witnesses' who have loved the Lord over the last two thousand years. But her specific focus is on the women who have followed Christ, a diverse collection spanning many generations, cultures, and lands. -- Carolyn McCulley Women have been at the center of 21 centuries of church history, and now Diana Severance brings to this generation their stories, inspiring us with their unique testimonies. Arising from the stage of history with the inspiring legacy of personal faith, each woman leaps from the page to encourage and motivate all of us who read these daily devotionals penned by a church historian who knows our hearts and has tasted our trials. -- Dorothy K. Patterson This is a daily devotional of astonishing scope. What you have is 366 bite-size biographical sketches of 366 Christian women. Collectively this book gives an overview of church history from NT times to the present day, through the eyes and stories of female believers.
It is a staggering accomplishment and would make the kind of gift one would return to again and again for reference and pleasure. If you like dipping into books, this
one is well worth a dip. -- Ann Benton, Evangelicals Now
