Women Worth Knowing Podcast
Welcome to “Women Worth Knowing,” a podcast hosted by author Cheryl Brodersen and history teacher Jasmine Alnutt!
We have always loved reading biographies about Christian women through the ages, whether they be missionaries, musicians, reformers, authors, or wives and mothers! Not only do we find their stories fascinating, but their examples have served as a constant source of inspiration to our Christian lives. So Cheryl had an idea: Why not turn these stories into a podcast so others can be as blessed by these stories as we are? And that’s what we did!
While there are certainly many familiar figures with captivating stories of God’s work in and through their lives, there are also plenty of lesser-known women whose lives were truly remarkable as well. We want you to get to know ALL of them! So join us each week for a lively conversation as we explore the lives of well-known—and not so well-known—Christian women in history. Trust us—these are definitely women worth knowing!
Lady Jane Grey (1537-1554): We continue today with the poignant story of England’s “Nine Day Queen,” Lady Jane Grey. Although used as a political pawn by unscrupulous members of the aristocracy (including her own parents!), Jane maintained her ardent, radiant faith in Christ to the very end of her life, serving as an inspiration to the Protestant cause in England. We close this episode with another story sent in by one of our listeners, the incredible testimony of missionary Phyllis Sortor. You won’t want to miss it!
