From the Back Cover:

Are you desperate for Jesus?

Do you feel passionate about your faith? Do you long for something more out of your spiritual life? In the Gospels you'll find the stories eight nameless women who were driven by passion and desperation to find out who Jesus really was. Come alongside them and experience how their encounters with God transformed their lives.

Jo Kadlecek is your guide to these unforgettable women. Through her unique writing she reveals new insights into Christ's life and character to help you make sense of your own situations and passions. You will find new hope in discovering how Jesus can use even your most desperate desires to lead you closer to him and into a life of greater fullness and purpose.
"Jo beautifully pairs God's provision with our very personal desperations. Turning her writer's pen on the subtle, secondary women of Scripture, she underlines how Jesus meets our needs and enables us to see his presence in our own daily desperations."-Elisa Morgan, CEO and president, MOPS International

"I highly recommend this book for both men and women who want to receive a greater understanding of what it means to be a representative of Christ to a world that is desperate to know him."-Nancy Alcorn, president and founder, Mercy Ministries
