Ten Girls Who Used Their Talent

Author(s): Irene Howat


Lightkeepers; The internationally best-selling series from an award-winning biographer. The ten girls include: Harriet Beecher Stowe, Mildred Cable, Sarah Edwards, Annie Lawson, Maureen McKenna, Katie Ann Mackinnon, Selina, Countess of Huntingdon, Helen Roseveare, Patricia St. John and Mary Verghese. What can you do for God? These ten girls grew up to become successful women. The two things they have in common is that they all put to good use the talents and gifts they had and they all believed that God had given them to be used. Helen used her skills as a doctor to bring the truth about Jesus to Africa; Maureen learnt to drive a bus and then she fed the homeless; Annie used her technical skills to keep aircraft in the air; Harriet wrote a book that changed society; Sarah enabled her husband to change a nation; Selina's influence and intelligence helped the persecuted and preserved the church; Mildred used her adventurous spirit to spread God's word; Katie Anns compassion rescued babies; Patricia brought Christian fiction to the masses and Mary showed that disability was no barrier to caring for others.
