Lisa Bevere encourages women
to embrace their inner lionesses

In her latest book, Lioness Arising: Wake Up and Change Your World, Bevere offers the sleek, powerful image of the lioness as a model for a strong, capable woman. Through the unique representation of the lioness, personal stories and biblical references, Bevere aims to help women awaken their instinctual strengths and challenges readers to let their inner lioness arise.

“More and more, the consensus of global studies points to gender equality as the missing link to stem the tide of world poverty and even terrorism,” Bevere says. “I’m always awed when our human wisdom points us back to what God has said all along. Long before there was ever a world problem, there was a world answer: woman.”
Bevere says Eve was the solution to solve “man’s being alone” and describes how women were not an afterthought, but an answer. By paralleling the lioness to women, Bevere creatively and thoughtfully encourages women to realize they are being called to something more.
Lioness Arising dares women to offer solutions to world problems by lending a voice to those silenced by injustice, ferociously protecting families, fiercely advocating for the world’s children and nurturing hurting women.

“God is not looking for people who act like Christians.
He wants us to be Christians. 

 We must wake up, remember who we are
and confront the evil in this world with light.”
