New York Times bestselling author and Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer is set to release her first devotional for women, Awaken: 90 Days with the God Who Speaks (August 15, 2017, B&H Publishing). Awaken is Shirer's latest book release following the international success of the award-winning Fervent: A Woman's Battle Plan to Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer (October 2015, B&H Publishing).
Shirer, a gifted and experienced Bible teacher known for her faithfulness to the Scriptures, hopes to get women "alone with God, with His Word, eager to hear his voice, and prepared to humbly and obediently respond." Shirer's heart for women's ministry is evident in Awaken's 90 devotions, which she describes as "personal whispers from God's Spirit to my own soul over the last decade."
"My prayer is that these passages bring an added layer of dimension, or even just some renewed direction, to women as they spend time with the Savior over the next 90 days," Shirer says. "Whether young or old, I pray that readers be encouraged and realigned toward the simple beauty of sitting with Him, hearing Him, speaking to Him, and being enlightened by His love letter to them."
Shirer has written multiple bestselling books and Bible studies, including the 2016 ECPA "Christian Book of the Year" Fervent. She regularly speaks to thousands at conference venues and churches around the world and recently starred in the #1 box office feature "War Room."
LifeWay Christian Stores is running an exclusive presale discount on Awaken until the release of the book. From July 3 to August 15, Awaken will be discounted from $16.99 to $9.99.
Priscilla Shirer is a wife and a mom first, but put a Bible in her hand and a message in her heart and you'll see why thousands meet God in powerful, personal ways at her conferences and through her Bible studies.
For the past twenty years, Priscilla has been in full-time ministry to women. She and her husband, Jerry, have founded Going Beyond Ministries and count it as their privilege to serve believers across the entire spectrum of the body of Christ. Priscilla is the author of more than a dozen books and Bible studies on a myriad of topics and biblical characters including Discerning the Voice of God, The Exodus, The Armor of God, Jonah and Gideon.
Priscilla is passionate about ministry, but prioritizes her calling as wife and mother above all. Between writing and studying, she spends her days cleaning up after (and trying to satisfy the appetites of) three rapidly growing sons-Jackson, Jerry Jr., and Jude.
