Review: Play with Fire by Bianca Jaurez Olthoff

{necessary information} I received this book as a part of a launch team and the opinions expressed in this blog are mine alone and not those of the author or publisher or launch team

{before reading} Hearing God girls share their stories is such an inspiration. It is especially touching when you are going through a valley or in this case the fire yourself. In May of this year my husband and I walked away from our income in hopes to help the church we were currently serving in, moved away from where we were calling home, and headed to a place that we used to call home. As we sit in waiting, my instant instinct is to go into HurriedPatience mode, but just like Bianca Juarez Olthoff says in the book promo video, " transformation does not happen outside of the fire, transformation happens in the midst of the fire."

{book review} Bianca wrote in a style that is easy to digest and slaps you in the face with each turn of page. She references real life moments that remind you that no matter where you came from: government cheese or gouda- God uses your ups and downs. "When we go through lifes fires, we will rise transformed". She calls the reader to honestly evaluate your relationship with Christ and your life in general- puts you in check. Come into the book in what ever state you are in and be prepared for some fire to burn up. I was a part of the launch team and read a pdf version of the book but the review is my own opinion.
