Chrystal Evans Hurst’s “She’s Still There”
surpasses 100,000 copies sold

Grand Rapids, Mich., Sept. 10, 2018 – She’s Still There: Rescuing the Girl in You by Chrystal Evans Hurst has sold more than 100,000 copies since releasing in August of 2017.She’s Still There hit the Publishers Weekly Religion Bestseller’s List and the ECPA Christian Bestseller’s List shortly after its release.

Hurst continues to actively engage with readers though She’s Still There speaking engagements, her popular podcast and YouTube channel, media appearances – including an upcoming interview with Focus on the Family, and the February 2019 release of Show Up for Your Life, written for teen girls.

In She’s Still There, Hurst shows us that no matter where we’ve been, those young aspirations that originally defined our true selves are still buried deep inside our hearts, waiting to be revived. By asking probing questions and including supplemental materials such as worksheet assessments, chapter-recapping sections called “Reflections for the Rescue,” and more, Hurst pushes readers to look inward and rediscover gifts and passions––then begin cultivating them.
