This week we're talking about standing up for your faith. This is not always easy, especially when faced with criticism, ridicule or persecution.

We want to encourage you to be brave!

Here are a few examples of young women your age who are taking a stand and influencing others with their passions and gifts:

Rose is doing something pretty cool to support the children of Haiti with Compassion International! Visit her site, Rose Reads, to find out more.

Sarah, a freelance writer and regular contributor for Radical Revolution, has written on her blog about how to provide dresses for girls in third world countries with Hope 4 Women International. Visit her site, Words of Wit(sdom) to find out more.

Also, for some extra encouragement, watch this music video of Nichole Nordeman's song "Brave."

Are you brave?

"Brave" by Nichole Nordeman

The gate is wide
The road is paved in moderation
The crowd is kind and quick to pull you in
Welcome to the middle ground
You're safe and sound and
Until now, it's where I've been
'Cause it's been fear that ties me down to everything
But it's been love, your love, that cuts the strings

So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave

I am small
And I speak when I'm spoken to
But I am willing to risk it all
I say your name
Just your name and I'm ready to jump
Even ready to fall…
Why did I take this vow of compromise?
Why did I try to keep it all inside?


I've never known a fire that didn't begin with a flame
Every storm will start with just a drop of rain
But if you believe in me, that changes everything
