ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the role played by literature and biblical heroines in her development as a person and a woman of strong religious belief. She relates that unlike in literature, biblical heroines are never afforded the same recognition as their stories are usually told in whispers. Moreover, she stresses that every individual in religious life has the responsibility to tell the stories of those who have dedicated their lives to the Lord, regardless of gender.
