This new title is a collection of stories by 8 of Canada’s most prominent Christian women leaders who share the principles that helped each of them to achieve great things for God in our country as told through their own life stories.

The General Editor is Vancouver lawyer and arbitrator, Georgialee Lang, also a contributing author, together with Deb Grey, from Qualicum Beach, former Member of Parliament and Order of Canada recipient; Lorna Dueck, CEO of Crossroads Communication, host of Context TV, and columnist for the Globe and Mail; Carolyn Arends, award-winning singer, songwriter, and author; Joy Smith, former Member of Parliament and founder of the Joy Smith Foundation, whose mission is to stamp out the trafficking of women and girls; Margaret Gibb, ordained minister, former CEO of Women Alive, and presently CEO of Women Together, a ministry that encourages and supports women across Canada and around the world; Janet-Epp Buckingham, law professor, and religious rights leader who championed Trinity Western University’s journey to bring a Christian Law School to Canada; and Christine MacMillan, formerly a leader in the Salvation Army, and presently Senior Advisor for Social Justice, World Evangelical Association.

What people are saying about this book:

“I’m not sure how well, if at all, the 8 women whose voices and stories make up this volume know each other, but together they form a remarkable sisterhood. Their stories of hard-won wisdom, persevering faith, restoring grace, and – always – the God who wastes nothing are riveting, invigorating, poignant and, sometimes, very funny. This book is for anyone – man or woman – who is or is becoming a leader and who needs bread for the journey: you just stumbled on a whole bakery.”
-Mark Buchanan, author of The Rest of God

“What an inspiring collection of stories from eight uniquely called and gifted leaders! Each one shows us how God empowers women to lead others in the right direction.”
-Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of The Girl’s Still Got It

“Faith, Life, and Leadership is a book that tells the true stories of 8 extraordinary Canadian women who said, “Yes,” to fulfilling their calling and purpose. With honesty, biblical truth, and powerful illustrations the authors reveal their journeys to leadership-the obstacles faced and the lessons learned. This book will inspire and encourage you, but it will also challenge you to live up to your highest potential as a woman of God. I highly recommend it!”
-Carol Kent, International Speaker and Author, Speak Up with Confidence (NavPress)

“”Christian leadership is an imperative in today’s world. The faith journeys of the accomplished women who tell their stories in this book are excellent examples of such leadership and deserve our full attention.”
“I have known Janet Epp Buckingham for many years and highly respect the leadership she has given to the various institutions and causes she has served. Her insights into leadership are well worth reading and taking to heart.”
-Preston Manning, Founder and President of the Manning Centre
