Life can move so fast at times that we can easily lose sight of each day's holy potential. As a woman loved and called by God, the ordinary parts of your day matter more than you could imagine.
The choices you make in your day-to-day routine impact the legacy you leave for your future generations. You are one piece in an ongoing story that was here before you, and will last far beyond your lifetime. The role you play is unique, and irreplaceable.
In Only One Life, Jackie Green and Lauren Green McAfee, mother-and-daughter duo, invite readers to join the group of women God is using to change the world. Using clear portraits of women in the Bible, women of history, and women shaping the world today, you will learn how God can multiply the small daily offerings of faithfulness. See how your own story is reflected in the lives of women such as:
- Mary Magdalene, the first witness the resurrection of Jesus
- Catherine Booth, an early advocate for women's rights and co-founder of the Salvation Army
- Christine Caine, a contemporary human rights activist and speaker
- And other seemingly ordinary women who have accomplished extraordinary tasks, including Harriet Tubman, Queen Esther, Lottie Moon, and Joni Eareckson Tada
Creating a legacy through your life is not a calling for an elite chosen minority. It is a calling for you, a woman with the unique capacity to shape the future using your faith, family, gifts, and leadership. Only One Life will empower readers to change their world forever by developing grit, grace, and the long view.
