During the She Speaks conference this year, Heather told us her story at dinner one night. When she was through, Stephanie declared, "You're a gutsy girl!"
And just like that, the name stuck in our vocabulary. We use it to describe women who live with courage, authenticity, and grace. They make a difference for the Kingdom in their own wonderful way (and often don't even fully realize it).
If you're here, we're guessing you're a Gutsy Girl.
And we'd love for you to meet some other Gutsy Girls too…
Especially Heather - Living courageously with cancer
The Non-Superwoman Chronicles – Perfectly imperfect in every way
Andi Hays – Letting God call her name again
Katie (Amazima) – Caring for 400 children a continent away
Kristin – Choosing to trust as a widow and single mom
Some of our (in)courage contributors have also been especially brave on their own blogs this week…
Amber – Sharing her secret so others can heal
Kristen – Getting honest about being wounded in ministry
Your turn – Who's a Gutsy Girl to you?

My dear friend Carly at “To write their names in the Sand.” A woman using her grief at losing her son to provide comfort to others.

Oh, just to whisper…
These women, Holley….
Oh, these women…
Don’t you want to be even more sold out for Jesus? Reading the faith-stories of these women make me wildly nod my head yes!
Thank you, Gutsy God-girls…
You shine Jesus-hope!
All’s grace and so grateful….

Thank you for the fabulous links. My friend Tara who write at http://www.gigglesandgulps.com also has a ministry called Out of the Valley. She shares openly about her battles with Postpartum Mood Disorders and I found so much comfort through her writings when I was struggling with PPMD a ew years ago.
Wow! I am honored to be a part of your list! I will embrace the title and do my best to live up to it daily!
My friend, Lindsay, is moving with her family (with 2 boys, ages 5 and 3) to Kenya in June to help with a children’s home. Brave girl. Her blog is http://www.erhardts.blogspot.com Their story is awesome.
What an encouragement to simply be together here, in a place like this! There are so many gusty girls out there, women who dare to simply walk in obedience to Christ-even when it makes absolutely no sense. I think of my dearest friend who, together with her husband, took a step (and a move) to plant a church. I’m honored to be on the journey with such an amazing woman.
“courage, authenticity, and grace”… What a perfect mantra to keep close at heart.
I just recently came across this:
The amazing thing is that I went to high school with her husband and only recently learned of her story. She’s a gutsy girl.
Especially Heather says
Oh what an honor to have a post about my guts! LOL.. 😉
I am so not brave, and it is only by His strength that I get out of bed each day to face my life…and boy has it been a rough life.
He is the one that makes me have guts!

Sounds to me like we need a T-Shirt made. I am slowly being transformed to a “gutsy girl” and I would wear a T-Shirt proclaiming it in a minute. I’ve lived on the other side and I don’t ever want to go back.
