Ann White’s “Courage for Life” is just the beginning for the Marietta, Georgia woman whose goal is to make sure women’s voices and needs are heard and met. “When we study God’s Word, we see God for who he truly is and sincerely grasp how much he loves us,” says Ann, whose book and companion workbooks detail, in easily digestible fashion, simple steps for learning how to embrace and incorporate God into everyday life.

“I’d tried everything on my own to fix my life, my circumstances, and everyone around me. I never considered fixing myself because I didn’t have that view: I couldn’t see the forest for the trees,” she recalls.  With the help of God’s Word and a Godly counselor, Ann overcame the obstacles of her past and for the first time, fully embraced her true freedom in Christ Jesus.

Her experience spurred her to write the Scripture-driven Courage for Life, which is “the book that I needed to read — but that I couldn’t find” says Ann. It includes seven practical steps that make up the word ‘COURAGE,’ the steps Ann took that completely changed her life.

The need to have resources available to help women build their relationship with God drives her to create such things as the first female-voiced audio Bible, entering a field that includes about 3,000 male-voiced versions, she says. The female voice is important to her mission, which has reached behind bars as well as in church pews. “One thing in working with at-risk women, it’s important to use gender-specific treatment. You don’t put a woman who may have been traumatized by a man with a male counselor or a male-voiced program.”

In addition, she is currently working with Tyndale House Publishers on a “Women’s Study Bible,” printed volume with the bottom part of each page containing lessons to inspire thought, discussion and practical application. “We should be sharing God and his word, teaching other people, and inspiring life change. Everyone needs a daily dose of God-given Courage For Life!” says Ann.

“God is waiting, arms open wide, saying ‘I don’t care who you are or what you’ve done, just come to me.’”

"There are millions of people living in fear, unable to gather the courage to change their lives. Whether you’re experiencing that fear, struggling with change, or simply stuck in your life or career, this is a must read. "
  • Phil Cooke, Ph.D. - Filmmaker, media consultant, and author of “One Big Thing: Discovering What You Were Born to Do."
"In a world starving for authenticity, Ann White had the courage to be transparent with her story so that you, too, could walk in genuine courage. Her book, Courage For Life, will guide you to live in truth with strength and dignity."
  • Kathrine Lee, Life & Business Strategist, Founder of Pure Hope Foundation
"Courage for Life will keep you spellbound and hopeful as Ann shares her real-life story partnered with some practical steps she learned while allowing God to redeemed her broken life; save her failing marriage; and claim her life fully for His service. "
  • Pat Layton, Author Surrendering the Secret and Life Unstuck
