The series will launch today, February 4, with eight podcasts featuring fashion journalist Lauren ‘LoLo’ Scruggs Kennedy, fitness expert Kim Dolan Leto, musicians JJ Heller and Gwen Smith, Young Life® leader Jessica Delgado, actress Jenn Gotzon, entrepreneur Mara Fortin and stroke survivor Katherine Wolf. These guests are all women who are living out their professional passions in alignment with their personal biblical values.

Podcasts will be posted every other Friday. Future episodes include interviews with Plumb, authors Tricia Goyer, Ann White and Laura Seibert, The Bachelor’s Tenley Molzahn, and more.  Each episode can be accessed through iTunes, Soundcloud, and/or the website.

Erin explains, “The Heroes for Her podcast was created to build a community of support and encouragement for parents and others who want to rally around and support their girls.  Our vision for helping young girls find role models in biblical heroines paired with helping their parents reinforce faith-based values as they face the challenges of life has become a reality!  

“Girls need heroes, real ones, so we thought we’d seek out women who are positive role models.  These women have such inner beauty! We are honored to get to share their stories and hope that the podcasts, as well as the books, help quiet the noise of the world and change the conversation about what it means to be a true hero.”

Along with the podcast, Bible Belles has just launched the first Spanish-language version of the original children’s series The Adventures of Rooney Cruz. The series highlights five superhero women from the Bible starting with the first book, “Hannah: The Belle of Prayer.” Rooney Cruz, the main character, is a regular 9 year-old girl who learns she possesses hidden superpowers. Her first adventure takes her on a journey that will change her life forever as she discovers her first secret superpower: the power of prayer.
