Life is never easy. There is a lot that happens in our life that is beyond our control. Maybe you’re dealing with a cancer diagnosis, the choices your children are making, a spouse who leaves, disappointments in our careers, or even a broken heart. Did you know that amongst these tragedies is a choice that we can still make?
Lie down and give in or stand up and fight.
Before I go even further, you might be wondering what on earth does being a warrior have to do with this.
“A warrior is one who is engaged aggressively in or experienced in battle. A warrior possesses the dedication money can’t buy. A warrior is someone who fights, not because of what she is getting out of it, but because of what she can give. A warrior is a soldier with a “die for the cause” attitude. A warrior will do whatever it takes to ensure victory. A soldier signs up to join the fight, a warrior stays until it is finished.”
(Wagner, Holly. Warrior Chicks: Rising Strong When Life Wants to Take You Down. Grand Rapids: Revell, 2015. Print.)
During your reading of Warrior Chicks, you will find yourself laughing and crying, but overall, inspired to leave the state of victimhood and to stand up and rise to the challenge. Holly Wagner challenges women everywhere to enlist as Warrior Chicks. She shows us that we are beautiful just the way we are, that we are overcomers, and that the battle has already been won for us. She will share the secrets of how to equip ourselves and prepare for battle and that it is more than just trying to survive. Holly shares her own personal story and shows you how you can either be a victim or a warrior that overcomes.
This is a book that you will not want to miss out on. It is geared for women of all ages going through all stages of life. It doesn’t matter what challenge you are facing, this book is for you. Holly shares truth and points us to the cross of Jesus Christ.
It is also a powerful resource for ministry. It is perfect for therapists, leading small groups, or just individual users.
