Bonnie St. John brings us a compilation of inspiring stories of prayer from strong women in all walks of life—from a New York police officer in the aftermath of 9/11 to Maya Angelou, author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Woven within How Strong Women Pray is Ms. St. John’s own story of her struggles as she grew up and overcame obstacles presented by having only one leg.

Bonnie is the first African-American to win Olympic medals in ski racing: a silver medal and two bronze medals in the 1984 Paralympics. She graduated with honors from Harvard University and was appointed to the White House National Economic Council. She went on to be an author, inspirational speaker, and TV personality. Today, she’s one of the most sought-after keynote speakers in the country.

In this collection, you’ll read about such women as Barbara Bush, Edie Falco, Kathie Lee Gifford, Amy Grant, Kathy Ireland, Marilyn McCoo, and a host of other women, and you’ll see how they use prayer in their lives to help give them strength to face the disasters that life may throw at them.

While my boyfriend served in the Middle East, prayer became the rock that kept me sane. I remember at least three times when I awoke at two or three in the morning with the absolute certainty that my boyfriend was in more danger than normal. I’d crawl out from under the covers, kneel beside the bed, and pray for his safety until my heart filled with peace. The women featured in How Strong Women Pray openly and honestly talk about their own personal experiences with prayer, sharing how it kept them on a positive path—just as it did for me—giving them strength to face what they needed to face in life.

How Strong Women Pray is a truly inspiring book. Reading about women you’ve seen on TV or heard on the radio who can speak so candidly about prayer is refreshing and uplifting. This is a book you’ll dip into time and time again, to help you replenish your spiritual side when things get too rough.
