Using sword fighting terminology from the world of fencing, Lisa Bevere gives girls a pep talk they’ve never heard before – preparing them for battle. We are all a part of an epic battle, and God wants his daughters to armed and ready. Inside you’ll be trained to:
•     Pray with Power

•     Use Discernment
•     Disarm Your Enemy
•     Become a Hero, a Female Role Modal in Your Church

Lisa Bevere, who overcame her debilitating shyness due to losing your eye to cancer, travels the world to encourage women to pick up their swords and join the battle – no matter wants holding you back, you can make a real difference. ‘Girls with Swords’ is her passionate message to invigorate women, for the sake of the whole church. When women stand up and fight, you can transform the face of culture.

Publisher's Description

What if you discovered you have been entrusted with an invisible, invincible, and incorruptible weapon? Would you use it? Move beyond only study and begin to wield the Word of God!

If there ever was a time for women to be armed, it's now. Yet the Word of God is a sword we often are more comfortable studying than wielding. It's time we give girls swords and watch them connect heaven to earth. Worldwide, women are the targets of prejudice, sex trafficking, abuse, and even gendercide. 

Lisa Bevere writes that these attacks say more about who women might be in the future than who they have been in the past. In Girls with Swords she explains a spiritual enemy is seeking to disarm women on every level. It's time women become the heroes God created them to be and stand - courageous, discerning, forgiving, and wise.

Creatively forging the imagery of swords, the Word of God, and the Cross, 'Girls with Swords' will teach you: 

  • How to speak the language of heaven on earth
  • What it means to intercede
  • What it means to carry your cross
  • What it means to be discerning
  • How to disarm the enemy
  • Why women are the enemy's target - and why God needs them to be heroes

It's time to take up your sword and be a hero.

Blog Article Fact: Rising Up Sarah Connor

After a string of plane journeys spanning over five countries, Lisa Bevere came home with killer jet lag. She collapsed on the couch next to her son, Arden, who was watching a movie. From watching this film Lisa was inspired to write this message.

Even after one hundred guesses, no-one could guess the film that sparked the idea for this book – it was ‘The Terminator’!
Confused? How could a Christian author get her idea for her book from a bad 80’s sci-fi (apologies to any fans). But give it some thought and all becomes clear.

Sarah Connor begins as a more than your average American women – working by day, dating by night, dreaming of a man to sweep her off her feet. Then a robot from the future is sent to assassinate her in cold blood. But a man from the future scoops her away in the nick of time only to explain she is the future leader of the Human Rebellion against robot murderers.

Overwhelmed by her earth-shattering day she yells, “I didn’t do anything!” (Here comes the inspiration for Lisa’s new book, ‘Girls with Swords’) The man replies “no, but you will!”

It’s this earth-shattering statement that knocked Lisa off her couch. In the midst of our weakness, our struggles and our insecurities is a future. We might not realise it now, you are caught up in a spiritual war. For Sarah Connor, it took a muscular Austrian to almost kill her to wake up to that reality!

In her book, ‘Girls with Swords’, Lisa wants to open your eyes to these earth-shattering realities:
•  You are in an Epic Battle
•  You have been Targeted so that You Become Powerless
•  You have been given the Weapon to break those Chains: God’s Word
•  You have a Calling on Your Life
•  You can become a Hero of Faith!

In the first chapter, Lisa refers to C.S. Lewis and his startling book ‘The Screwtape Letters’, which document the demons discussion about disempowering women:

“All is summed up in the prayer which a young female human is said to have uttered recently: ‘Oh God, make me a normal twentieth-century girl!’ Thanks to our labours, this will mean increasingly, ‘Make me a minx, a moron, and a parasite.” – The Screwtape Letters, by C.S. Lewis.

Lisa doesn’t want our churches to full of minxes, morons or parasites. She wants women to lead, women to conquer, women to take their rightful place and be active in their calling. This motivational book is punchy, direct and totally life-changing. Read it and join the fight!
