Christian Female Role Model of the Day: Mavis Staples

Welcome to my celebration of Women's History Month! You can read more about this month and why I am writing about admirable Christian women here. For now, let's jump in!

The Forgiven Former Feminist's Female Christian Role Model of the Day is...  Mavis Staples!

Mavis Staples was a gospel singer from the very beginning. Staples' family was actively involved with Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights movement. Staples and her family sang at King's rallies and marches. Mavis went on to continue making music long into the next forty years! In fact, in 2010, Mavis Staples won a Grammy for Best Americana Album! She has spent a lifetime using the gift that God gave her to share the gospel with millions of people.
