The girls are each very different, but they all love Jesus and love each other. They share their strengths and struggles and how they discover bravery in women in the Bible. In this full-color, illustrated Bible storybook, the Brave Girls help readers learn important lessons from more than thirty women in the Bible, including Eve, Sarah, Rahab, Esther, Mary, and Lydia. Through their lives, readers will learn such valuable truths as:

God loves me even when I mess up.

Letter from Tommy Nelson to Parents, about why this line came about:

Dear Parents,

If you have a daughter, you know that the deepest desire of any parent’s heart is to see her happy, confident, and most importantly, deeply aware of God’s love for her. For her to know how courageous and strong she can be, and that God has a plan to use her life for good!

Strong, confident girls and women are making a splash in pop culture. From Disney’s Merida in Brave to Veronica Roth’s Katniss in The Hunger Games, girls are taking their place as the heroes of the story, and rightfully so! Women have been a crucial part of God’s story for generations, and the Bible is full of brave girls whom God used to make a difference.

Ephesians 3:20 tells us, “With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of. To Him be the glory!”

We are overjoyed to tell you about a new brand making its debut this September that we hope will speak these truths to your daughters’ hearts, Tommy Nelson’s Brave Girls! Brave Girls Bible Stories, the first book from the new brand, will help girls grow in their knowledge of the Bible and in their faith. Your daughters will get to know our Brave Girls – Hope, Gracie, Glory, Faith, and Honor – five modern-day friends – as they journey through the Bible together.

The girls are each very different, but they all love Jesus and love each other. Readers will find parts of themselves in each of the five Brave Girls as they share their strengths –from sports to fashion – and struggles, including making new friends and working through dyslexia. As the Brave Girls narrate, readers will learn such valuable truths from more than thirty women in the Bible who dared to follow God.

The Tommy Nelson Team


This book is aimed at girls, ages ages 4-8, and id the beginning of a new line from Tommy Nelson, that aims to teach girls about the Bible and growing into godly women of character, in a way they can really relate to! By using the 5 modern Brave girls (Faith, Glory, Hope, Honor and Gracie),  who are multi-raced, so every girl can relate to one of them, Tommy Nelson has found a great way to reach your daughters! Now the bible isn't just a book they get read to- the girls bring the lessons home to real life for your daughter, and realize through the stories of the 30 important women from the bible, that they are part of God's plan and very loved!

This is a wonderful line for young girls, especially for those that may not be getting enough sense that the bible applies to them. The Brave girls are very realistic and Miss Grace loved the entire book! She ended up tied between if Glory or Hope was her favorite character! I'm very excited about this new line and how empowering it is for young girls, and I urge you to get a copy for all the young girls on your list this holiday season! It would also be a lovely First Communion gift!
