Endorsements for Gutsy Girls: Strong Christian Women Who Impacted the World

I absolutely love this book – it’s fun, it’s relatable, and with its vibrant illustrations and energetic prose, it’s so readable. What a gift it is to be able to share this inspiring story and much-needed role model with the young girls in my life. —Michelle DeRusha, author of 50 Women Every Christian Should Know: Learning from Heroines of the Faith

As soon as I started reading Amy’s book I knew it was a God send to a generation of young ladies desperate to know that God still can and will use them for great things. In Gutsy Girls, Amy does a magnificent job of sharing the true story of Gladys Aylward and how a nobody by the world’s standards turned out to be one of the “gutsiest” women ever. Gutsy Girls truly is a clarion call to our daughters to be courageous world changers. This book needs to find itself on our daughters’ nightstands everywhere! —Kristi Baily, homeschooling mama of four and former public school teacher

Additional Work by Amy:

Amy's bookcover

Amy L. Sullivan believes no one loves harder and more completely than children. She also believes selfies, cell phones, must-have tech gadgets, and the sparkly allure of possessions, lull kids into an insatiable desire for more.

Don’t panic. This isn’t a book condemning stuff.

Instead, When More is Not Enough celebrates the idea of more: more prayers cried out, more time spent together, more use of our talents, more interest in strangers, more forgiveness of hurt, more of what Jesus taught us each day of his life.

Filled with Biblical reasoning, real-life anecdotes, practical resources, and start-this-very-second kinds of activities, When More is Not Enough is for families who are ready to move beyond seeing generosity as a series of tasks and instead, turn it into a way of life.
