What kind of woman never gives up, loves others unconditionally, feels like a princess, and still knows how to pick up her sword and fight? A God Chick displays these characteristics and more, and Holly Wagner tells how you can do it, too, in her devotional book, Daily Steps for God Chicks. As a modern woman, Holly understands that the demands on a gal’s time are constant, and the biggest challenges often come while trying to balance the details of everyday life! With this in mind, she wrote her devotional, and set out to help and encourage aspiring God Chicks everywhere.
Holly and her husband Philip have two children. They serve as co-pastors of Oasis Christian Center in Los Angeles. In addition to her devotional, Holly has written three other books and is a well-loved speaker at women’s gatherings all across the United States. Recently, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and despite the temptation to be broken by the news, Holly turned her situation into an opportunity to increase her faith and teach others how to do the same. She has discovered that with every aspect of life, God shapes His daughters into the women they were created to be, regardless of the discouraging settings surrounding them.
Daily Steps for God Chicks is a laid-back book that will put a smile on the face of any woman who has ever felt the pressure of playing multiple roles. Holly's casual style sounds like the advice one would get from her best girlfriend because her tone is light and conversational. Though the overuse of ellipses makes the reading somewhat choppy at first, the inspirational message of God's word is retained, and the reader finds that daily time with God can go from being somewhat of a chore to the best part of the day! Mostly non-standard translations are used for references—such as The Message and New Living Translation—but Holly uses them to give a spunky, new twist to many already well-known verses. Each devotion concludes with a “daily step” to assist in applying the principle of the day.
Deep down, every woman knows that she was meant for great things, despite the often overwhelming stresses of life. It is great to be reminded that God created each of us for our own purposes, and, with Him, it is possible to live life to our full potential. Daily Steps for God Chicks is for chicks from all walks of life who want to learn to be fun loving, faithful, and courageous daughters of God. --Amanda Branyan, Christian Book Previews.com
GodChicks come in all sizes-not to mention shapes, shades, styles and shoe sizes! Some of us can walk a mile in high heels, and others love their Birkenstocks. Some of us not only know what a basketball is, but can put it in the hoop on a regular basis-and then again there are some of us who would rather just cheer our kids on from the sidelines. Some are married. Some are loving the single life. Some are doctors. Some know where the "Band-Aids" are. Some travel the world, others the supermarket.
Each is unique, with special gifts; and each is alive and on the planet at this time in history for a reason.
Based on her best-selling book, GodChicks, this fresh and engaging devotional focuses on the eight characteristics taken from Proverbs 31. With her trademark wit and honesty, Holly will encourage you to allow your eight special "GodChick" qualities to shine as you step out as a daughter of the King and experience the benefits of spending daily time with God.
Sharing her own life experiences, including her recent journey through cancer treatment and recovery, Holly's insights are uplifting and relevant to women of all ages. Discover, as Holly did, how spending time with God is so much more than a Christian duty-it's a lifeline!
