Women Heroes of the Faith

Dr. Robert Kelleman (no "r"!) is sharing insights and selections from his book, Sacred Friendships: Celebrating the Legacy of Women Heroes of the Faith.

There are several good posts up at his blog, and he is worth following on Twitter where he's BobKelleman. (Again, no "r").

Some inspiring material today from Perpetua of Carthage, the heroic martyr who strengthened and consoled others while facing death. She refused to offer worship to the Roman Emperor as a god, and stood up to the authorities and her family to maintain loyalty to Christ.

She's also emerged as a fine blogger.
