Give the Gift of God’s Word

Creating the first female voiced audio Bible, Genesis to Revelation

God’s Word Changes Lives

Reading or hearing God’s word awakens and strengthens our faith and is a proven source of wisdom, instructions, and hope that leads us towards true freedom from the spiritual, emotional, and relational issues we face in our day to day lives.

“Faith comes by hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.” – Romans 10:17

Women Connect With Women

Currently, there are no complete versions of the bible voiced by a female. Women connect with women, especially if they have abuse in their past. Extensive research and clinical experience have proven, “the best way to help at-risk women and girls heal from substance abuse, trauma, and mental health issues, is to use gender-specific programs. Because females tend to be the more nurturing gender by nature, their voices are often perceived as a helper, more compassionate, understanding, and non-threatening.”

Creating a Woman’s Audio Bible

We are assembling a diverse group of women from all walks of life to record their voices as they read the bible. Production for the audio bible began March 2018 and will focus starting with the book John.

This project fills a big void in the women’s recovery space. Women in jail are the fastest growing correctional population in the country. Domestic violence is the leading cause of homelessness among women and children. We want to reach as many women in crisis as possible with the comfort, encouragement, inspiration and hope that they can find in God’s Word—without ever turning a page.

“More than half of Americans have read little or none of
the Bible” and 33% have never picked it up all. Nearly 30% of Americans cite that they don’t have time to read the Bible, don’t read books generally, or don’t have a Bible. A Women’s Audio Bible addresses those challenges.

Project Partners

We have already secured the rights from Thomas Nelson Publishers for the New Living Translation. We have a working relationship with YouVersion, the most widely downloaded bible app in the world.
