Though addressed to young women, this book appeals to women of all ages. Taking Romans 12:2  as its foundation. "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, you may prove the will of God, that which is good, acceptable, and perfect" - the book dares readers to explore critical issues such as self-esteem, courage, honesty, and identity through the lens of scripture and experience, offering the positive message that they are valued and loved by God.

Every young person that you work with would benefit by these quick-hitting, personal topics of Dare To Be Rare!”LeRoy Jacobson, San Antonio Youth for Christ/Campus Life, presently in youth ministry for 36 years

“Kathleen has been an amazing spiritual mentor to me since high school. Her encouragement and guidance to me has always been based on God’s word, which she continues to do throughout this book.

Michael and I are so excited for all of the lives she will bless through her teachings in Dare To Be Rare!” Ginna & Michael Crocker, Reverend, Alamo Heights United Methodist Church

Dare To Be Rare will help a young person discover her belovedness, so that she can live her life in the freedom of who she is in God’s grand design.

Dare To Be Rare reveals Jesus in such a way, that you know He is in the seat next to you, holding you tight as you travel the ups and downs of life’s roller coaster.
