Take Flight by Robin Jones Gunn & Cindy Hannan

Grace…it bids me fly and gives me wings!

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!

SISTERCHICK® n.: 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.

Ready to spread your wings and really go places? No more flitting. No more dawdling. It’s time to dig deep into God’s boundless grace and take flight!

Maybe you’re stuck in a quiet time gone dry. Or perhaps you’re an early bird, eager to get the worm. For every Sisterchick seeking a fresh time with God, this devotional/ponder/prayer/excuse-to-gather-together book will send you soaring. Straight from Robin’s nest and Cindy’s perch, you’ll find a collection of insightful devotions, key Scripture verses, and wit ’n whimsy wisdom for the journey, along with Sisterchickin’ suggestions, space to pen a peep or two from you, and more!


I received this book free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Company in exchange for an honest review.

But I had no idea how much it would touch my soul – I’m glad they don’t expect the book to be returned (with all the tear-stained pages).

On a lighter note, I loved all the flight references: preflight prep, birds-eye view, on a wing and a prayer – it was so much fun!

The first section opens with grace – God’s Grace – which is what makes life worth living.

If we cannot believe God when circumstances seem to be against us, we do not believe Him at all.
-Charles Spurgeon

This novel explores grace-stories of life, but in a truly unique way. Robin tells a grace story; Cindy summarizes it and asks the reader questions to plant the story deeper in the heart & mind. Then there’s room left at the end for the reader to write a few notes. And last but not least, suggestions for applying what’s been learned!

Read this devotional! But have a box of tissues handy. You can read about it HERE at GoodReads.

I’ve collected books from Robin Jones Gunn for years. I bought the Christie Miller series & Sierra Jensen series for my daughter. Most of them were bought in a little bookstore at Dollywood just after the park opened. Then I began collecting Sister Chick novels just for me. But this devotional is an awesome addition to my book collection.
