Ask almost any young girl to tell you about a Disney Princess such as Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine, Ariel, Anna and Elsa and most can tell you their entire story. Some might even sing you a song— “Let it Go. Let it go!” But ask the same girls about Hannah, Esther, Abigale, Ruth, or Deborah from the Bible and it’s likely they’ve never heard of them. Author, speaker, and cancer-survivor Erin Weidemann is on a mission to change that.
Erin created the brand, Bible Belles which focuses on inspiring girls and women of all ages to fulfill their destiny, redefine the world’s messages of beauty and worth, and promote positive, powerful female role models in Scripture and modern culture.
“My mission is to help women of all ages to know the truth of who they are so they can do what they were created to do,” said Erin.
Renewed Faith Through Cancer
But it was Erin’s cancer diagnosis that brought her to a crisis of faith which later helped empower her to be an encourager for women. At 26 and a self-proclaimed Atheist at the time, she faced the reality of her own mortality. At her mother’s suggestion, Erin had a doctor examine a lump which she’d noticed years before.
