CRAZY CHURCH LADIES RELEASES FEBRUARY 2021
"This incredible book charts the awakening of everyday women transformed by an extraordinary God, and their impact on the most broken, most forgotten parts of their community. Their compelling story is a living reminder that God not only made us for more, but that he is able to do more than any of us could ask for or imagine...Your call may be different, but these ladies have so much to teach us. Let it inspire you and ignite you to run with love, courage, and sacrifice into your community."
–Jo Saxon, Speaker, Leadership Coach, Author of Ready to Rise
"Gwen Adams and her Crazy Church Ladies are anything but crazy. Adams’ bold journey into a powerful spiritual awakening proved contagious and catapulted countless church ladies into a revolutionary ministry beyond church walls. Readers will resonate with the honest foundational questions she was asking—about church, the gospel, being a woman, the stubborn love of Jesus, and wider ministry opportunities... This is game-changing book, one I pray many women and men alike will read. May this radical craziness spread!" —Carolyn Custis James, Author of Half the Church: Recapturing God’s Global Vision for Women and Finding God in the Margins: The Book of Ruth
"Crazy Church Ladies will capture your eye as a book title, but its contents will resonate with your own heart if you’ve ever sat in church or left a church yearning for more—yearning, frankly, to know what it is to live fully alive, actively participating with our God’s rescue plan for you and all of creation. I personally know these “crazy church ladies” and I’ve seen firsthand what a huge force for good and change they have become in our state... Come on this journey through the lens of some “Crazy Church Ladies” and discover more about who you were made to be."
—Sean Parnell, Former Governor of Alaska (2009–2014)
"I have rarely had such an astonishing experience as encountering Gwen Adams’ “Crazy Church Ladies” when she asked me to do some trainings with them. Now the entrancing story is in a book. It is a MUST READ, not just for the soul-wrenching, spirit-enriching stories, but also to envision the difference a group of committed, unified women can have in a community. These crazy ladies were transformed as they transformed the sex business in their town. Beyond all that, Crazy Church Ladies will challenge everyone’s philosophy of what the church is and can do. “Take and Read.”
—Gerry Breshears, PhD, Professor of Theology, Western Seminary, Portland
