Encinitas-based publishing startup Bible Belles has been rapidly growing over the past several months. Started by local Erin Weidemann and her husband Brent, Bible Belles produced a series of children’s books that help young girls connect with and learn from five women in the Bible. The company also offers gift bundles, devotionals, ebooks, birthday party ideas, and more.

“Receiving messages from families whose lives are changing through the work we do has been the best experience so far,” Erin said. “Hearing that parents are feeling equipped and excited to help their daughters know their true value and live into the real definition of beauty is confirmation that this is a good work.” Erin has been featured in Christianity Today and Charisma magazine, and was recently interviewed on The 700 Club television show. What’s more, Erin is a five-time cancer survivor and is an official speaker for the American Cancer Society as well as the host of the Heroes for Her podcast. Learn more at www.biblebelles.com.
