Lioness Arising: Wake Up And Change Your World by Lisa Bevere (Review & Giveaway)

Author: Lisa Bevere
Publisher: Waterbrook Press
Category: Christian
Release Date: September 2010
(From the back cover blurb)
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.
Learn what it means to:
  • be a stunning representation of strength
  • fiercely protect the young
  • lend your voice to the silenced
  • live in the light and hunt in the dark
  • raise a collective roar that changes everything

Packed with remarkable insights from nature and a rich depth of biblical references to lionesses, Lioness Arising is a call for women to rise up in strength and numbers to change their world.


Passionate. Edgy. Relatable. Powerful. Funny. These words describe Lisa Bevere, an international speaker, best-selling author, and co-host of The Messenger TV program, which broadcasts worldwide. In her transparent style, Lisa shares the Word of God woven with personal experiences to empower lives toward freedom and transformation. Her heart breaks over social injustice, and as an advocate for change she rallies others to answer desperate world problems. Lisa enjoys living in Colorado Springs with her husband, author and speaker John Bevere, and their family.


In Lioness Arising Lisa Bevere challenges women to "awaken a lioness"; to recognize our strength and power as God's daughters and to utilize that strength to follow His direction. To serve others. To stand together, like the lionesses in a Pride, to do what God calls on us to do.

Lisa adds scripture and quotes that go along with her insight and for me this one by British poet, Matthew Arnold, was pretty powerful- "If ever there comes a time when the women of the world come together purely and simply for the benefits of mankind, it will be a force such as the world has never known." WOW! And that was only at the beginning of Chapter Two!

Ladies, this book will stir you. As Christian women it will challenge you to "Wake Up And Change Your World". And not just your immediate world, it will challenge you to change Our world!
