Book Review: "Take Flight"

Take Flight! a Sisterchicks’ Devotional by Robin Jones Gunn and Cindy Hannan is short and sweet, but just right for times when a woman needs just a little extra encouragement in her walk with God and friends. The book has 14 devotionals arranged in four sections: Bird’s Eye View, On a Wing and a Prayer, Take a Flying Leap, and Under the Shadow of His Wing. Robin writes the first part of each devotional: a story from her own life related to a quote from one of her Sisterchicks books. Each story explains a lesson Robin has learned and wants to teach. Cindy writes the second part of each devotional giving readers a deeper understanding of the idea Robin introduced, followed by Bible verses for further study, personal journaling space, a quote or two by a well-known Christian woman, and suggested activities for friends to do together, putting the idea into practice.

I enjoyed reading this book and appreciated its ideas and insights. I especially loved reading about Robin’s practice of setting a day a year aside for concentrated prayer and journaling and her story of becoming a missionary to Nairobi without actually ever going there. Our God offers such wondrous surprises when we follow Him faithfully. Robin and Cindy’s devotionals encourage Sisterchick readers who long to do this well.

I received a complimentary copy of Take Flight! from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers in exchange for this honest review.
