Free printable #PerSister Card quotes
Are you looking for a way to inspire people with the words of women? Then use our #PerSister cards - two sets of 24 inspirational quotes by or about women that we gathered from you, our Women's Ministries community.
Our #PerSister packs became a viral social media campaign, getting the words of women into the hands of our communities everywhere. The #PerSister series sprang from Lieutenant Emma Howan of The Salvation Army New Zealand wanting to inspire the words of women in her setting.
'The idea of using quotes about women came from wanting to explore how hearing their stories can speak into our stories: women speaking into women's lives.'
If you take time to notice in sermons, presentations or even quotes in the media, women and their perspectives are sometimes entirely left out of the conversation. We believe that God speaks through women, and we want to redress that balance of wisdom by spreading quotes by, or about women! We crowdsourced these quotes from our Salvation Army Women's Ministries Facebook community and made them free to print!
'The idea of using quotes about women came from wanting to explore how hearing their stories can speak into our stories: women speaking into women's lives. Crowdsourcing this made it even more powerful as it became women sharing quotes about women that had spoken into their lives that they wanted to pass that on to inspire other women' - Lieutenant Emma Howan
