Book Review: Take Flight!

Book Review: Take Flight!
By Robin Jones Gunn and Cindy Hannan

This book is a collection of devotionals, intended to provoke thought and to inspire the modern woman. I did find most of the prose pleasant and some of the anecdotes were delightful, but these devotionals were definitely not time friendly. There are several pros and cons to a book of devotionals that take longer than 5 - 10 minutes to read through, on the other hand, for busy mornings, this was not the best option for me. It was nice to spend some time with these devotionals on my weekend morning when I did have a little more time to spend with them.

That being said, I would recommend this devotional book for a woman who needs just a little inspiration. There are also some very insightful quotes at the beginning of each day and the collection was put together thoughtfully and carefully so that each quote relates to the subject matter it precedes.

From the publisher:
Dig In, Soar Up!
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!
Open the Door and Soar!
