Compilation Birthed from Dream of Encouraging Women

After the name “She Writes for Him” dropped into her heart on a spring day in 2019, Athena Dean Holtz of Redemption Press said, “I somehow knew it would start as a book compilation, then a podcast, then a bootcamp or writers’ retreat, and finally a conference.”

She envisioned women sharing their pain and suffering and how God helped them to overcome—all to point others to Jesus with a message of hope and healing.

Twelve months later, in May 2020, She Writes for Him: Stories of Resilient Faith launched featuring best-selling authors Carol Kent, Tammy Trent, and Dr. Saundra Dalton Smith, plus twenty-seven brave women who shared their hard stories of abortion, depression, betrayal, loss, and shame.

Now six months following the release of the first compilation, She Writes for Him: Stories of Living Hope continues the legacy of that dream. This second edition features award-winning managing editor Cynthia Cavanaugh, best-selling authors Liz Curtis Higgs, Pam Farrel, Debbie Alsdorf, and twenty-seven other women. Each author writes from the heart and from personal experience on topics such as suffering, cancer, mental health, addictions, and abuse. While the topics and experiences are hard, the authors declare the faithfulness of God in working all things together for good (see Rom. 8:28).

Each part of the She Writes for Him dream God dropped into Athena Dean Holtz’s heart has now come to pass—from bootcamps, to a three-day virtual conference, to the She Writes for Him compilations—with the promise of more to come.
