Such a perfect reminder: right here, right now, our impact is powerful.

Reading "One Woman Can Change the World" felt like breathing fresh air—no checklists or guilt trips, no "shape up" or "get it together" instructions, no preaching or pushing. Instead, it felt like grace, and honesty, and hope, and gentle nudges to respect my own identity, instead of demanding that I perform as someone else, with someone else's purpose.
My favorite thing about this book is that no one in it is "famous." The wo

Ronne Rock does a wonderful job at capturing the stories of these women in such a way that the reader can feel like they've been sitting with them on the couch this whole time rather than reading about them. As women, there are often struggles with am I not enough or am I too much, and then books, blogs, articles and social media posts are read in hopes of what we can do to "fix" things in our lives. This is not a how-to book, but a book that shows how all humans can be people that change their ...more

As a writer, Ronne weaves a beautiful story and meets us as women right where we are. She infuses us with hope and encouragement about stepping into the lives God has for us. Ronne doesn't give us a leadership how-to guide, nor does she focus on leadership qualities, but she effortlessly intertwines women's true life stories of how they are creating change all over the world. This book immediately grabbed my attention with the storyline focusing on women in different cultures. These stories are ...more

Often when you read books like these you are left feeling inadequate, pressured to achieve a new level of faithfulness or achievement. However, I found One Woman Can Change The World by Ronne Rock to be the exact opposite. The grace, hope, wisdom, and gentleness in Ronne’s words and thoughts is consistent throughout and left me feeling encouraged and ready for what comes next. As I turned each page I felt at peace while also feeling challenged.

The title of Ronne Rock’s book, One Woman Can Change the World, throws down a gauntlet. That’s a pretty high expectation to fill in a little over 200 pages. I identified with the author’s soul-baring and scar-sharing style, as her stories brought me right alongside her efforts to “fix” the world’s aches…armed at first with a backpack full of first world solutions. We read about her maki

Wow! This is more than a great read. For me as I read this book, I felt inspired, encouraged and challenged. Each story is so much more than a story. The stories were a peak into the everyday lives of women who are everyday women living for more than themselves.
These women are leaders and this book is already influencing the way I lead in work, my family and ministry. The more I read, I found myself wondering a few things... what have I as a woman done to change the world? What have the women i

Before reading this book, I considered myself a woman that was bitter about society and truly felt my life was relatively purposeless. This book is completely changing and reshaping my view of myself and my view of woman and the power and purpose we possess. Rock weaves stories of her own triumph, failure, disappointment, and encouragement as well as many other incredible women beautifully. This book is not only changing me, but this book is changing my entire view of women. We all need this kin ...more

I am getting a sneak peek at Ronne Rock's #OneWomanCanChangetheWorld and am loving it because it provides a view of how one woman has approached improving the world around her...and then some.
Quoting from the book, I want to share a few things that take you deep into your core and if you are like me, pushes me to action. Leche, no tiene leche.

The stories and encouragement are soul-lifting!

Ronne does a beautiful job of sharing stories of women serving around the world. The inclusion of seeing how women around the world have the same insecurities and doubts moving forward in their trust in God was freeing. What I love most about these women, and Ronne’s own story, is that they are not doing BIG things. They are being constant and showing up in the places that God has put them in each day. Ronne’s words help us move from thinking of so

What to say about this book? Ronne Rock's words hit the heart like an arrow. And then they pull along the bottom of your heart, exposing a holy and valuable part of yourself you were unaware was even there.
It is as if, when reading this book, a mirror is being held up before you, but not to expose flaws or insecurities or transgressions; instead her words draw out dignity, value, and right-sized talents.
In a world where we often carry blame for someone else's actions and subsequent silence, wher

Such an incredible book, everyone should read it. This book is written in a beautiful way that will capture the hearts of anyone who opens it. Reading the stories, I realized I need to see life and love from different perspectives. I realized I was missing out on so much only looking at things from my tiny worldview. This book challenged me to look deeper into the world and ask myself “how can I change the world?” We all have the power inside us to change the world, and it’s important to share i ...more

Wow! What an inspirational read! This book is a beautiful reminder that my impact on this world doesn’t come from a perfect, instagram-able life. My impact comes from living my life to the full. My life may look sad to some but could have a life changing effect to myself and those around me.

This book is not just a collection of stories about women bound together under a unifying title. This is a beautiful tapestry of courage, perseverance, compassion, leadership, and love, woven together with the strongest of threads: God's purpose for all of us, and his promise that he will see us through it. If you're reading reviews to decide if this book for you, this book IS for you. You will be inspired, challenged, moved, and changed. Get a copy for yourself. Then get a copy for the woman yo ...more

Ronne Rock's book 'One Woman Can Change the World' is a tapestry of interwoven reflections from her experiences of travelling the world, the stories of the tremendous women she encounters who are changing their world right where they are, and with Biblical women whose journeys are shared in the Scriptures.

One Woman Can Change The World is the full breath of fresh air that every woman needs in their lives. It’s so easy in this day that we live in, to constantly feel like you are the one that is falling behind, that your inadequate, not making a difference, that you don’t have value or worth. Ronne not only shatters these horrendous lies that we tell ourselves.

Whenever I pick up a book in this genre I write down a few quotes and eventually donate the book. They leave me feeling like the amount of work I have to do to fit into this world and be a global changer is either common sense or so out of the realm of possibility that I leave feeling discouraged- at best. "One Woman Can Change The World" was different. This is a leadership book in that it is a leader in itself.

There are a few things I love in this world. Great coffee with a friend. Big bear hugs. Books that tell stories that matter and speak life into your own. Traveling like a wayfaring stranger. Reading this one is a mixture of all of these things.

You’ll find friends you didn’t know you had or needed. You’ll stumble upon laughter and tears. You’ll walk through some fire and go shopping for milk. And when you finish? You’ll find it’s just the beginning.

Yes, one woman can change the world.

"Words are indeed mighty things...the true power of using our voices is found in speaking the language of those who need to hear." These 24 words sum up my feelings about Ronne Rock's One Woman Can Change The World.
An expert story teller, she weaves together the amazing stories of the women who lead, God's power in and calling on each of their lives, and her own heart-opening experiences with the women and the Jesus who is accessible, active, creative & (LOVE the Ampersand chapter) present.

Ronne Rock’s story telling about the lives of these women allowed me to see that the seemingly “small” things in my life are important and meaningful. My favorite thing about these stories is that while these women are doing amazing work, they are simply living faithfully to who is in front of them, they continue one step at a time no matter how lovely or clumsy, they value being present with people, and they keep in sight the vision that is in their heart—namely, one of hope. This book felt lik ...more

With what little they have. If you struggle with believing you matter, this book will set your heart and mind on the truth that God u ...more
