Heroes in History

Whether or not you are an avid reader, no doubt there will come a time (school project, youth group presentation, personal study) when you will have an opportunity to learn about a famous person and their impact on history.
Rather than the usual picks of Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela or Abraham Lincoln (who were all great men and we should know their stories regardless), may I suggest a few lesser known but equally fascinating men and women, who not only loved Jesus but also made a difference along the way:

C.S. Lewis
Peter Marshall
Smith Wigglesworth
Martin Luther
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
William Wilberforce
Corrie ten Boom
Charles Spurgeon
Amy Carmichael

These are just some of my personal heroes, people who inspire and encourage me. If you don't know their stories, start a Google search today!
Feel free to add to the list - who do you admire and love to learn about?

Love Brooke
