Have you ever wondered how the Bible applies to your life?
Do you think about the people who fill its pages and wonder what they could possibly teach you?
In particular, do you wonder how the Bible addresses your needs as a modern woman?
If so, then She Speaks by Michelle Clark Jenkins was written for you!
She Speaks is a devotional that was written to show women just how much God loves them. In this book, you’ll meet 50 women of the Bible, hear their stories, and glean important lessons from their lives.
Each devotional opens with a key passage about a biblical woman and a first-person recounting of her story. You’ll find a Why Her section that reveals why her story is important, a brief About Her overview, and an Apply Her section with the lessons we can learn from her life. The devotional closes with a Find Her section where you’ll find the key places in Scripture where you can read each woman’s full story.
If you are looking for a beautiful devotional that will introduce you to key women in the Old and New Testament, this is a good place to start!
She Speaks is subtitled Wisdom From The Women of the Bible to the Modern Black Woman and is part of the Sisters in Faith brand whose aim is to encourage and empower African American women in God’s Word.
The targeting of this specific target market is reflected in the introductory remarks and the use of African American models throughout the book.
In terms of the book’s actual content, however, She Speaks is suitable for all women from all backgrounds.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson for review purposes. I was not compensated for this review, nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
I shared this resource with a writer friend from Abilene, Texas – Kirra Antrobus. She writes a lot about God and the bible. Hopefully, she will come by and comment, too.

In His Love,
Welcome Grace – I’m delighted you stopped by – I look forward to getting to know you too!
Sounds great! I appreciate your reviews, thanks for sharing! And thank you for linking up with MissionalWomen for faith filled friday. It’s a blessing to have you!
Thanks Laura – it’s nice to have a forum to share my reviews at! 🙂
Joy! Thank you so much for reviewing my book. Absolutely this book is for everyone. From my heart to yours. I would love to see what your followers think as well. Sisters in Faith was created as a brand for African-American Christian women to specifically use as tools for their families, churches, friends, and community, and the materials are from the hearts of African American women. It was not meant to exclude anyone, but to have the world hear from a segment of the Christian family that hasn’t much been heard from in Christian publishing. Many women of all ethnicities have similar demographics to African American women and we are happy to share the love 🙂 Blessings & Honor, Michele Clark Jenkins
