The Blue Cord

About the Book

Can you imagine sharing your faith with a woman of another faith?

Jesus told his followers to "go and make disciples of all nations" and promised to be with us - even amid persecution or rejection because of sharing our faith. So why do we hold back from openly sharing our faith with others, especially across cultures? Why do we stay silent during times of opportunities to share the Good News?

In The Blue Cord, author Karen Bejjani emboldens Christian women of all ages and backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities, to let go of any doubt and fear around sharing their faith in a cancel culture, and instead focus on practical ways to shine their light for Christ.

Here's what people are saying about this book.

"...a refreshing, inspirational, tell-all book that will challenge you to live better for Christ...I highly recommend." Tom Doyle, Author of  Women Who Risk: Secret Agents for Jesus in the Muslim World and Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World?

"...sprinkled with surprises—sometimes profound and sometimes funny—is filled with practical examples. Miriam Adeney, Ph.D. Associate Professor of World Christian Studies, Seattle Pacific UniversityAuthor, Daughters of Islam:  Building Bridges with Muslim Women

"Rarely do you find a book that you cannot put down because it captures your heart. This book is certainly a page-turner. Ted Esler, Ph.D. President, Missio Nexus

“Hi, I'm Karen! I'm here to help you connect your faith with purpose." 

For most of my life, I’ve been a “good Christian girl” just working and raising a family in the suburbs. I went to church most Sundays, did Bible studies, volunteered, prayed. I supported missionaries who went over “there,” wherever “there” was.

My friends were mostly like me.

We were all crazy-busy working and raising families, overwhelmed, and exhausted at day’s end. Besides our kids, no one I knew had ever led anyone to Christ, especially across cultures. We didn’t even talk about it.

Then I met a woman in the Middle East whose bold and courageous witness was a beacon of truth in the darkest of places. The only difference between her and me was that she didn’t waver in doubt or unbelief in who God is, who she is in him, and what he called her to do. She helped me connect my faith with purpose.

Now I’m here to do the same for you.

 Connect Faith and Purpose

If you're like most of the faith-filled women we've met, you want to trust the Lord and have a faith worth sharing.

Yet it's not easy.

Whether you're trying hard not to offend, or you've been courageously slinging back the darkness to share the hope of Jesus across cultures, it can be easy to lose your way. Even the most faith-filled women struggle when they do this journey alone.

If you want to live a life filled with meaning and purpose now, so that you can hear "well done good and faithful servant" by the end, you can't wallow in doubt, unbelief, or sit on the sidelines right now. You need to remember who God is, who you are in him, and what he called you to do. You need a plan and a community of women that help connect your faith with purpose.

Don’t let the world shape you.

Start small.
