Cathy Liggett

Dear Readers,

Beaded Hope by Cathy Liggett is a fiction story based loosely on a mission trip the author took to South Africa. The non-profit organization mentioned in the story is an actual company. You can go to and check them out. You can learn more of their story and make purchases of the different products the ladies make. Even some of the proceeds from the sale of this book go to Beaded Hope.

Gabby decided to go on the mission trip at the last moment, Cassandra went to further her career, and Heidi and Katie had planned on all going along, but things have change since they signed up, making the trip more difficult. 4 very different women with 4 very different reasons for going on a mission trip, but God has plans to use them all.

Once in Africa they meet Jaleela through Mama Penny. Jaleela has a dream, one she believes that God placed on her heart. She wants to be able to support her family even while being infected with AIDS. It is a disease that is devastating the continent of Africa. No one wants to talk about it, but it is leaving millions of orphans every year. Jaleela just want to take care of her children as best as she can. Her hope is that the ladies will be able to sell their bead works in America. Will the ladies be able to help them? Do any of them really want to?

This is a good book to read. I know Cathy wrote this book to generate interest in Beaded Hope, but I think it will also generate interest in missions in general. I know it made me think of the mission trips I have been on. Whether on a foreign field or in the USA, it doesn’t matter they have all been very special and it’s so much fun to remember them.
Happy Reading
