Elizabeth George's Bio:
Elizabeth George is a bestselling author and accomplished speaker who instructs, inspires, and encourages women in their faith. Through Jim & Elizabeth George Ministries, she and her husband write and distribute curriculum focusing on practical applications of the Bible.

A highly sought-after speaker for conferences, seminars, retreats, and womenís events, George delivers life-changing words of hope to audiences across the U.S. and beyond. Her series of nationallysyndicated one-minute A Woman After Godís Own Heartģ radio segments encourage women to pursue godliness personally, as wives and mothers, at work, and in their ministry.

In her newest book, A Womanís Call to Prayer, George teaches women that prayer is the driving force toward understanding Godís will and priorities. Once a woman is anchored in prayer, she automatically taps into Godís strength in times of trouble, worry, and disappointment. As she prays for faith, wisdom, and understanding, God will provide discernment for every circumstance from finances to childrearing to how to manage time. George not only explains how to overcome obstacles to prayer, she reveals Godís formula for developing a powerful and effective prayer life.

Jim and Elizabeth share writing talents in a second release, Powerful Promisesô for Every Couple, where they explore 24 promises that bring life-changing relevance to contemporary concerns.

They confess that God was not the Lord of their lives for the first eight years of their marriage and though they enjoyed the trappings of the world, their lives had no joy. Today, they are eager to share how God helped them reprioritize their lives and how His promises pave the way for them and every couple to experience confidence in times of uncertainty, peace in the midst of worry, wisdom for every situation, strength to endure difficulty, and joy regardless of circumstances.
