Some battles we choose; others choose us. There is a lot in life we cannot control--a cancer diagnosis, the choices our children make, a spouse who leaves, disappointments in our career, a broken heart. But in those tragedies, big and small, we still have a choice: lie down and give in or stand up and fight.
In this inspiring call to arms against victimhood and complacency, Holly Wagner challenges women to enlist as Warrior Chicks. She shows women that they are beautiful just the way they are, they are destined to be overcomers in this life, and that the battle is already won for us. She shares the secrets of being equipped to fight the good fight and do more than just survive. As Holly knows from her experience as a warrior chick battling breast cancer, we aren't living in peacetime. We can choose to be a casualty or a warrior. So what's it going to be?
My thoughts: Most of us don't choose battles to take one. I can imagine a lot of us would be happy if life weren't full of them.;) In Holly Wagner's book, she shows readers the importance of taking on battles (like to fight for our marriage or for being healthy) and how they can make one stronger. I love that she uses a lot of personal experience and stories from the Bible and history to bring home her points. I did think that her writing style was a bit disjointed though, which makes reading the book a bit jarring. Her message is wonderful though, and it is worth reading the book for that reason.
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
