They are all around you–in your neighborhood, your church, even your own family. They are sisters and daughters and mothers. These young women may look like they have it together, but inside they’re hurting and hopeless. They are trapped by prostitution, alcohol, drugs, and darkness.
They are desperate. And God is ready to transform them…into dangerous.
In A League of Dangerous Women, Mary Frances Bowley tells the incredible true stories of women who knew only abuse, abandonment, and addiction–until God met their weaknesses with His Strength. Now these remarkable women are warriors for a heavenly kingdom, their lives a testimony to the extraordinary grace of a heavenly Father.
Maybe you’ve been there yourself, or know someone who has been through similar circumstances. Whatever your background, these amazing stories will help you see the potential of God’s redemption in your life. A League of Dangerous Women will challenge and inspire you to discover the healing, powerful, dangerous plans He has for you.

“Mary Frances is one of the most dangerous women I know! She’s not afraid to boldly go where many fear to tread — into the lives of broken women who’ve been sexually and emotionally battered. I recently had the privilege of visiting with Mary and one of the Wellspring’s beautiful beneficiaries. It was a ‘WOW!’ moment for me. It is so evident that God is pouring out His lavish love through Mary, quenching many thirsty hearts and revealing Himself as the Living Water that truly satisfies and transforms.”
