From the slave girl Blandina through to the young mother Betty Stam, we discover the women who faced their struggles with strength - the strength of God. Many of these women made sacrifices for their faith. They endured the pain and suffering in order to give glory to their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. They had real faith - a faith with muscle. There were tortures and imprisonments, executions and separations from husbands and family. Lonely nights and heartache were a reality but so is God and the knowledge that nothing that can separate us from the love of God.
