|ATLANTA, Ga. (December 1, 2020) — Ann White is the author of the bestselling self-help title Courage For Life (and companion study guide). She is an inspirational speaker and founder of the women’s ministry named for her first book, Courage For Life.
Compelled by the desire to serve the underserved and help those quietly suffering through trauma break free into a world of truth, hope and finding a full life through Jesus Christ, Ann White did her homework.
“We enlisted 20 vocal actresses to embody the scriptures, and the project took over 2.5 years to complete. First we completed the New Testament so we could immediately serve the women who are a part of our prison ministry. Many of these women aren’t allowed reading glasses (security protocol) so they aren’t able to read the small-print Bibles most available to incarcerated women. The audio Bible was our solution,” says Ann.
“The voices are soothing, nurturing and incite peace. We have also found this audio Bible aids male prisoners, many of whom have experienced abuse and are triggered by male voices in other audio Bibles. Once we realized this was indeed beneficial, we made it available to counselors and the general public. The feedback we’ve received has been incredible. Women, men and children who have experienced trauma have all benefited positively from hearing the Bible ready by women. Because it’s readily available for free on our app, anyone in the world can access this option for experiencing God’s word.”
The Courage For Life Audio Bible — Old and New Testaments — is available on both Apple and Android devices.

About Courage For Life:
Ann White’s “Courage for Life” is just the beginning for the Marietta, Georgia woman whose goal is to make sure women’s voices and needs are heard and met. “When we study God’s Word, we see God for who he truly is and sincerely grasp how much he loves us,” says Ann, whose book and companion workbooks detail, in easily digestible fashion, simple steps for learning how to embrace and incorporate God into everyday life.
“I’d tried everything on my own to fix my life, my circumstances, and everyone around me. I never considered fixing myself because I didn’t have that view: I couldn’t see the forest for the trees,” she recalls. With the help of God’s Word and a Godly counselor, Ann overcame the obstacles of her past and for the first time, fully embraced her true freedom in Christ Jesus.
Her experience spurred her to write the Scripture-driven Courage for Life, which is “the book that I needed to read — but that I couldn’t find” says Ann. It includes seven practical steps that make up the word ‘COURAGE,’ the steps Ann took that completely changed her life.
The need to have resources available to help women build their relationship with God drives her to create such things as the first female-voiced audio Bible, entering a field that includes about 3,000 male-voiced versions, she says. The female voice is important to her mission, which has reached behind bars as well as in church pews. “One thing in working with at-risk women, it’s important to use gender-specific treatment. You don’t put a woman who may have been traumatized by a man with a male counselor or a male-voiced program.”
In addition, she is currently working with Tyndale House Publishers on a “Women’s Study Bible,” printed volume with the bottom part of each page containing lessons to inspire thought, discussion and practical application. “We should be sharing God and his word, teaching other people, and inspiring life change. Everyone needs a daily dose of God-given Courage For Life!” says Ann.
“God is waiting, arms open wide, saying ‘I don’t care who you are or what you’ve done, just come to me.’”
