In Lioness Arising, author and speaker Lisa Bevere offers the life and image of the lioness as a fierce and tender model for women. Revealing the surprising characteristics of this amazing creature, Lisa challenges women to discover fresh passion, prowess, and purpose.
Awaken. The lioness rises from her slumber, a magnificent image of strength, passion, and beauty. Her mere presence commands the landscape, protects her young, and empowers the lion. In groups, lionesses become a creative and strategic force to be reckoned with, acting as one to change the world around them.
You too are a lioness.

Here's what others are saying:
(The following are portions of reviews found on Amazon)
. . .I was stirred, challenged, encouraged, empowered, and enlarged by Lisa Bevere. I'm getting this book for each woman in my life...truly a must read.
. . .This book introduces a change into the landscape of Christian thinking concerning women's role in ministry. It has been anticipated by countless women who have known deep down inside that they have been created to be world-changers.
. . .She uses the lioness as a sort of word picture to describe the strength, energy and prowess of a woman, especially a Christian woman. Bevere encourages women readers without degrading our male counterparts. She sees the role of the "lioness" as one who nurtures, supports and exercises strength as God intended.
I really couldn't say it better than this from the back cover . . .
Passion, Edgy, Relatable and Funny these words describe Lisa Bevere. And here's what Lisa has to say. . . "God is not looking for people who act like Christians. He wants us to 'be' Christians."
