Daughters of Zelophehad
Through this book, you will be introduced to a little-known Bible story about five remarkable women– the Daughters of Zelophehad. The story resonates with women who are destined for greatness because it reveals so many truths about women’s leadership and presents an example for any women aspiring to influence her society today. Women of Africa are at a unique crossroad. For too long, the stories told about us have been stories of death, disease, and vulnerability. Yet, there is so much potential. There are big ideas planted in the hearts of women and girls across this continent and the world is waiting for this greatness to manifest. By seeing yourself through the lens of the Daughters of Zelophehad, be prepared to be spurred to live a life of inspired, purposeful leadership predicated on the wisdom of God.
