List of Women Quoted in the Series

Below is a list of the women who are quoted in the series. We have added website links for many of the women. If anyone knows links to other women's websites featured on this page, please forward them to our webmaster.

If a woman on this list has a number 1 next to her name, she is quoted in Enter His Gates. If she has a number 2 next to her name, she is quoted in Deep Calls Unto Deep . Anna has not released her list for In My Sister's Footsteps at this time, but when she does, we will incorporate it into the list below.

Disclaimer: These books include quotations from over 150 women of faith throughout the Church age to the present day. These quotations cover a wide variety of topics, reaching across denominational, geographical, and ethnic lines. We do not necessarily endorse everything these women have said, written, taught, or stood for. We do believe that the quotations in these books have spiritual value and are biblically sound.
