For over twenty years, Ava Sturgeon has helped young women understand the privilege and responsibility of following Christ. As a high school English teacher, she’s seen their struggles. As a mentor and Bible teacher for college ladies, she’s seen their authentic faith.
Ava’s Bible study A Daughter’s Worth (2006) helps young women understand their precious value as God’s treasures. A Daughter’s Heart (2011) explores God’s holy character and our devotion to Him.
Teaching high school English means lots of essay grading with little time for writing on her own. But sometimes, during holidays and summers, Ava publishes Worthy Daughters blogs and enjoys speaking at girls’ and ladies’ events. At her church in Pensacola, Florida, she has served in both the high school and college ministries.

Interested in her beliefs as a born-again Christian? Here’s a peek:
In Ava’s own words: As a child, I realized that one sin was enough to separate me from Holy God. I learned that Jesus died on a cross to erase the judgment of every bad thing I’d ever do. His death was a gift if I’d simply accept it. So I did. Thankfully, the story didn’t end there: Jesus rose from the dead and will return for His children one day. Until then, my joy is to love Him and love others.
