Encouragement for Those Looking to Create and/or Build Faith Based Friendships – Take Flight! Written by Robin Jones Gunn and Cindy Hannan (Book Review)

Take Flight! A Sister’s Chick Devotional

Many thanks to the author and Blogging for Books for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Take Flight! is a devotional dedicated to friendship and living life as God intended.  A sisterchick is defined as “a friend who shares the deepest wonders of your heart, loves you like a sister, and provides a reality check when you’re being a brat.” Each devotional begins with a personal story shared by a sisterchick entitled “From Robin’s Nest.”  The application of biblical principles to the story is offered with scripture references in a section titled “From Cindy’s Perch.”  “Take a Closer Look” is a section that provides additional bible verses that support the underlying theme of the story.  An area is provided for your personal thoughts and comments in “A Peep or Two From You.”  “Wisdom” is offered in the form of additional supporting biblical verse.  Quotable Sisterchicks shares notable advice from fellow sisterchicks with talent for the written word.  Suggestions are then offered to assist the reader in enriching their lives with practical and active methods to form friendships and a support network united in faith, i.e. gather fellow sisterchicks.

The stories offered in Take Flight! are well written, interesting, and thought provoking, but still succinct enough to read in small increments of time.   This devotional successfully provides inspiration and encouragement for readers looking to develop and initiate strong, faith-based friendships.  Several Sisterchick novels written by Robin Jones Gunn prior to the creation of this devotional are available.

About the Book:

Spread your wings and really go places with Take Flight , the first devotional/ponder/prayer/make-it-what-you-need book in the Sisterchicks in the Word series! Robin Jones Gunn and her Sisterchick, Cindy Hannan, offer a collection of fresh, insightful devotions that will rejuvenate the quiet time gone dry. Along with key Scripture verses, they kick in travel tips, wisdom (such as, when a woman knows she’s loved, she can do anything ), Sisterchick locators (find me the best scone in the world!), and more. Complete with ideas for Sisterchickin’ (slang for Sisterchicking; activities for Sisterchicks to do together, as in, “Don’t bother us now; we’re Sisterchickin’!” Not to be confused with Sisterchicken). New. Deep. Different. Fun!
