Kay Marshall Strom and Michele Rickett travelled across continents to partner with ministries working to help females, and to interview girls in some of the most difficult places in the world. Forgotten Girls: Stories of Hope and Courage holds those girls’ stories: tales of deep pain and suffering, inspiring courage, and incredible hope. They are the stories of girls who have discovered their value in God’s eyes in the midst of cultures that have rejected them. They are stories of God working through compassionate people — people like you. These pages might hold pieces of your story, as well, as the authors invite you to pray and speak on behalf of the millions of women and girls who still need to know how much they’re worth. For each of the five sections of the book — physical suffering, education, sexual protection, prison and war, and spiritual life — the authors provide specific, practical action steps and prayer points that allow you and your young adult ministry to get involved as God leads.
