warrior chicks by Holly Wagner - REVIEWED

About the Book:
There is a lot in life we cannot control--a cancer diagnosis, the choices our children make, a spouse who leaves, disappointments in our career, a broken heart. But in those tragedies, big and small, we still have a choice: 

Lie down and give in or stand up and fight.
In this inspiring call to arms against victimhood, Holly Wagner challenges women to enlist as Warrior Chicks. She shows women that they are beautiful just the way they are, they are destined to be overcomers in this life, and that the battle is already won for us. She shares the secrets of being equipped to fight the good fight and do more than just survive. As one who has battled many things in her life, including breast cancer, Holly shows how you can be either a casualty of the pain or a warrior who overcomes. 

So what's it going to be?

My Thoughts:

It’s all about a life rooted in God.  It is knowing who you are in Him, knowing the purpose for which you have been created and staying committed to working that out.”  (p. 153)

Holly Wagner’s book, warrior chicks, takes these profound truths and adds realistic steps to flesh out the story of her own journey as well as those who have walked through the Bible before us.  She uses examples from her years in ministry to illustrate the truth that we all have a choice to make when the storms of life crash over our lives:  we can lie down in defeat or we can rise and fight.  We can be foot soldiers, or we can be warriors.  We must choose to wallow in defeat or rise and fight from a place of victory!

Holly has a gift of speaking the truth in love while simultaneously challenging and encouraging readers to fall into the arms of their Heavenly Father and embrace His love for us!  We CAN KNOW who we are and whose we are as children of God, and we can live lives that can touch and bring healing to others.

This book has intersected my life at a God-appointed time.  A time of great change. A season of forgiving and receiving forgiveness.  A season of closing the door on yesterday and throwing the door to my future wide with hope.  This is a book that makes me feel God’s love for me and a book that has encouraged me anew to put on my armor and continue to fight the fight set before me.  To wait on God and listen to His voice.

I cannot begin to say enough about this book!  It is a gift! It is a message of truth and hope!  Fight on, sister warriors!  We are not alone!
