Product Description

When Others Shuddered: Eight Women Who Refused to Give Up is the story of eight women called to serve God and who, in doing so, changed the world. They lived at the turn of the century, rubbing shoulders with the well-known men of their time, like John Rockefeller, Marshall Field, and Dwight Lyman Moody.

These women—Fanny Crosby, Mary McLeod Bethune, Nettie McCormick, Sarah Dunn Clarke, Emma Dryer, Virginia Asher, Evangeline Booth, and Amanda Berry Smith—were unique. They were single and married, black and white, wealthy and poor, beautiful and plain, mothers and childless. Yet, each felt called to make a difference and to do something—to meet a pressing need in her world.

These women wanted to live lives less ordinary. Their stories inspire us to follow God's calling in our own lives. They teach us that each individual person can make a difference. These eight women will show you how God can use your life to change the world.

About the Author

Jamie Janosz
JAMIE JANOSZ is the managing editor of Today in the Word, a daily devotional published by Moody Bible Institute. She studied theology and writing at Moody Bible Institute, Columbia College, and Illinois State University. In her off hours, you will most likely find her poking through antique shops, adding to her collections of old books, mid-century furniture, and vintage purses. Jamie and her husband, Milt live on the Atlantic coast of Florida.


I was one of four sons and the father of three, never wanting for great role models. As the grandfather of three granddaughters, however, I'm constantly scouring the media landscape for true stories of women my young beloveds can aspire to emulate. When Others Shuddered fills the bill. I love everything about this book, from the women Jamie Janosz chose to the quirky design, and from the stories themselves to the resolve they inspire in me. Imagine the impact such a work can have on the lives of young women.

Warning: This book might just change your life. These women will inspire you to ask God that your life might count for His kingdom—whatever the cost. No woman is too young or too old, too poor or too rich to become a mighty vessel in the hands of the Lord. "Here am I Lord send me!"
