A lot of these women saints hailing from Africa date back to just a few hundred years after Christ’s death. Born into the early years of Christianity, many were persecuted cruelly for their religious faith. Remaining steadfast, they faced their deaths with courage and joy, God firmly in their hearts.
So if you’re looking for inspiration for your own little girl, look no further than these inspirational, devoted women who — when confronted with the most frightening of circumstances — displayed all the qualities we could only hope for in our daughters.
