In a culture where the question of identity is everywhere, they’re inviting women to discover and embrace the one unshakable, permanent and lasting identity that they’ve been given from God: You are a daughter of the King of Heaven and Earth.

En una cultura donde la cuestión de la identidad está en todas partes, están invitando a las mujeres a descubrir y abrazar una identidad inalterable, permanente y duradera que han recibido de Dios: eres una hija del Rey de cielos y tierra.
