As you read the stories in Bridge Builders: Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary Things, you will enjoy the company of 12 humorous, uplifting and energizing women. You will find wonderful portrayals of the heart, mind and soul of faith and come to appreciate these aspects of yourself. Elaine Voci gives us the 12 stories of women who have had life-changing experiences plus her own story during the year it took to complete the book. Whether facing terminal illnesses, the loss of a hard-won career or the pursuit of a dream that seems unreachable, these women found a source of faith and courage within themselves that they did not always trust or believe they had. Each called upon inner resources, friendships with other women, scriptural passages and other inspiring words to not only endure, but to conquer fear and grow stronger. You will find part of your own story reflected in these life journeys, lessons and inspiration expertly gathered from the words of 12 heroic women by Elaine Voci, an outstanding new voice in non-fiction.
