Just as Esther was set apart for her destiny by her character and her commitment to God, He is preparing young women today to influence their generation for Him. This companion book to For Such a Time As This profiles the lives of several modern-day Esthers, from well-known performing artists to low-profile, unexpected heroines. Each girl’s story illustrates important character strengths, such as purity, friendship, honesty, advocacy, prayer, servanthood, and courage, that influenced her response to challenging choices and cultural pressures. These profiles will inspire every young woman who wonders what God can do through her.
