s/t: Daring to Live Courageously, Dream Boldly and Influence Bravery
Too often, women allow shame, lies, and doubts to hold them captive to fear, forgetting that the Father’s design—for women to live with bold purpose and daring dreams. Every day, the café and sewing center Braverly seeks to empower and train women from oppressed people groups on the Thailand/Myanmar border, but its heartbeat extends well beyond Mae Sot. Inspired by the work being done within Braverly’s walls, A Place Called Braverly is filled with the vulnerable stories of two missionaries: Kate Berkey and Kristy Mikel. A Place Called Braverly journeys through Scripture as well as Berkey and Mikel’s personal stories to discover what it looks like to live bravely—saying yes in the everyday, dreaming beyond limits, and influencing and encouraging bravery in others as followers of Jesus. Within the pages of A Place Called Braverly, readers will interact with creative writing pieces, artwork created by women from Braverly, and unique ways of connecting with the Father. In the end, Berkey and Mikel hope to demonstrate how this heartbeat is more than just the mission of a ministry in Thailand. It is the battle cry for all women.
