It seems that most kids' Bible storybooks all focus on the same main characters and stories -- which is fine, since we all want our kids to be familiar with them -- but out of all the fifty bajillion kids' Bible books we have, I think only one mentions this gal:

I love how the authors have expanded the story of Deborah to show children how being open to God can lead to amazing things!

The story opens with Deborah as a young girl who bravely warns her village of danger when she spies King Jabin's general Sisera coming to attack with his hundreds of chariots.

Her people flee, but lose their freedom as they continue to evade his army.

Deborah grows up and becomes a judge, sharing God's will with the people and helping them solve their problems. Finally, God calls her to help defeat Sisera's army and bring peace to the land.

Your kids will be caught up in the action of the battle as they turn the pages of this book, further enhanced by Eric Elwell's powerful illustrations, which blend traditional and digital techniques to set the bold mood.

The book concludes with reflection questions and a note from authors Rachel Spier Weaver and Anna Haggard, who share the passion of the Called and Courageous Girls series, which is to introduce readers to the many faith-filled female adventurers who lead, make brave decisions and risk everything to follow God.

Add this unique story to your family's faith library today and encourage your children to boldly follow God!
