Sharon James has written biographies that hold some surprises and a great deal of inspiration. These four women knew that contentment and happiness did not depend on good health, a fulfilling job, or a happy family life. Through a selection of extracts from their writings you too can discover first-hand the heart of God that captivated these women and enabled them to live for his glory, whatever the cost.
