Inspiring young women . . . for world missions

DARING DAUGHTERS is co-directed by Ann and Christi Dunagan, mother and daughter.
It’s a vision to inspire girls for world missions, based on this verse from the Bible:

“And how shall they preach, except they be sent?
As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them
that preach the gospel of peace,
and bring glad tidings of good things!”

–Romans 10:15

the real lasting beauty . . .

There’s more to being beautiful than outward appearance, and there’s more to being godly than simply looking good in church. It’s more than just saying “NO” to impurity and sin; God also wants us to get His heart for the world, and for us to say “YES” to His purposes, which might not always be easy . . . or admired.

Remarkable women have gone before us, godly and daring daughters like Amy Carmichael, Florence Nightingale, Lottie Moon, and Elisabeth Elliot.

These women made a difference. They embarked on adventures that took them around the world. They rescued orphans, they loved the lost, and they made tremendous sacrifices. Some married dangerous men, and stood by their side, even when things were tough. They dared to go — wherever God would lead. They dared to pray — and they let God’s compassion move their hearts. And they dared to love the world — with a passion that was self-sacrificing, and eternally beautiful.

motivating girls to get God’s heart . . .

Through this new vision of DARING DAUGHTERS, we have some exciting things ahead for the next few months (specifically before Christi gets married in June — to Trae Childs, an awesome 3rd generation missionary from Niger, West Africa!!!) to inspire teen girls to get God’s heart for the hurting people of this world — both nearby, or in faraway nations. We want to stir young women to care for those who are hurting, and to deepen their love for God. Our desire is to motivate girls to be willing to trust God, and to follow Him, no matter what.

God may or may not call you to live in a foreign country, but He has called to obey God’s Great Commission. As women of God, we’re called to love God, to love others, and to work with God to expand His kingdom.

We invite you to join us in the adventure.

Girls, let’s DARE to obey God.

In His Love,
Ann & Christi
