It's not always easy to live your faith during the nine to five. But no matter where you work, that's the mission field in which God has placed you. It doesn't matter if you're a waitress or the CEO of a Fortune 500 company--you're equally important to God. And he wants to use you to build his kingdom.
Sistergirl Devotions is for you--the working woman who wants to grow spiritually while on the job. Using Scripture, "sistergirl" wisdom, and true stories, each down-to-earth devotional shows how your faith can empower you to have success no matter where you work. With topics such as respect, resourcefulness, image, timeliness, honesty, setbacks, and balancing work, church, and home, each devotion ends with a "Power Move"--practical affirmations that will drive you toward victory.
"Carol Mackey has done a masterful job of incorporating the practicality of God's Word into daily meditations. She does not shrink from the real issues we often struggle with. Carol addresses them boldly, giving clear answers and 'Power Moves' to equip us to have the victory we long to experience in our everyday lives."--Michelle McKinney Hammond, author of The Power of Being a Woman
"Sistergirl Devotions is by far one of the best self-help books I have read in a long time. Carol Mackey masterfully weaves in Scripture, invaluable wisdom, and her own personal experiences.

"Sistergirl Devotions delivers inspiring daily nuggets that will warm the soul and motivate every reader to succeed on the job for the Lord."--Stephanie Perry Moore, author of the Payton Skky series and the Beta Gamma Pi series

Whether you are a new Christian or someone who has a committed relationship to the Lord, you will find this book helpful. Although Carol MacKey is the author listed on the book cover, she only God's messenger, because these words and prayers were truly inspired by Him. The book is well written, easy to read, and full of practical ways to live your faith from nine to five and beyond. Best of all, each installment is based on a different Scripture from God's word and the "Power Moves", were an absolute actionable blessing. It doesn't take long to read each day's devotional but what you read sticks with you throughout the day. I don't believe anyone could read from this devotional and not be changed. I was really blessed by the entire book from the introduction to the end, but one of my favorite-favorites was Number 31 - Signs and Wonders - Believing miracles for yourself and your coworkers. In a time when we are challenged to do more with less on our jobs, this mediation truly reminded me that God is in complete control at all times and in every way and that we should be mindful to pray and care for our community at work. Can I tell you there are 90 of them? And all are power-packed with a word that will stir your heart. I recommend it for all the "Sistergirls" who really want to keep Jesus in the Mix on the Job. You will be blessed. Review by Rhonda McKnight for Urban Christian Fiction Today
