“Take Flight: A Sisterchicks Devotional” by Robin Jones Gunn and Cindy Hannan is a fun and enjoyable gift book. The chapters—if you could even call them that—are very short and not more than a few pages. With quotes and pictures and nice large font, this book is great for women on the go who don’t have too much free time on their hands. There are Bible verses referenced every so often, and the book does carry a Christian undertone. However, this book could be read by anyone. It isn’t so much of a devotional in the sense of being a deep study tool. Still, it’s a nice book for women who want to quiet time to themselves. The blue font, crisp pages, and color hardcover binding are all added plusses. There are quotes from other Sisterchicks series books in this book. Whether you see this as the authors merely using what they have or trying to push their other books is up to you. Irregardless, with this book, you will share in the authors’ stories of happiness, sadness, hope, travel, imagination, and more.

I love devotionals and this one was no different. I love Robin Jones Gunn too aka author of the sister chicks books, (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. ) so that even made it that much more fun to read and enjoy. I enjoy the part at the end of each chapter where you are given a topic and a bible verse to look up and read. Then your given an area in the back of that devotion for you to write down your thoughts on what you have just read in the devotion and in the bible, and how you can minister to others as you should anyway in my opinion. If you like devotionals I think you will will like this Sister chicks devotional. I received a free copy of this book to read and review by WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, for my honest unbiased opinion.

received A Sisterchicks Devotional TAKE FLIGHT by Robin Jones Gunn and Cindy Hannan and could not put this down. It just hit home with me as I'm sure it will with so many others. Robin, a gifted author for many years, shares Bible verses, stories & pieces of her life and heart just as if she knew we were sisterchicks A sisterchick by definition: 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. Robin encourages us to spend time with God,to dig deep into His boundless grace, and quit flitting around, but really take flight as a Christian because there are things to do and places to go! And Robin's sisterchick and pastor's wife, Cindy, challenges us to live out what we have just studied (there's a place for notes) and shares insightful bits of wisdom as to how we might minister to others along this journey. I really did love this Nouveau Devo, it is interesting, tugging at my heart, convicting me & encouraging me to get on out of the birdcage that I'm put myself in, and take flight through God's love and mercy in this wonderful journey of life. This book was sent to me by Multnomah publishers in exchange for an honest review.

"Take Flight! : A Sisterchicks Devotional" by Robin Jones Gunn and Cindy Hannan is a devotional written for women. Be warned: These devotionals are a little bit longer than what most others are, and with my stop and start reading, I felt like I was always forgetting what I was reading, when I'd pick it up again. If these readings had been just a little bit shorter, I think I would have liked it a lot more. Robin and Cindy really spoke to the heart of a woman, though, and their messages were really relevant to what I think a lot of women deal with. My favorite part of this book was that each devotion ends with the "Take A Closer Look" section that gives offers additional readings, note taking space, and a Bible verse that is relevant to what you just read. Each devotion focuses on one theme, and begins with Robin's part of the devotion, "From Robin's Nest", where she shares a personal story or experience that she ties into a Biblical message. This is followed by Cindy's portion of the devotion, "From Cindy's Perch", which expands on Robin's theme, and sometimes gives another personal story and Biblical wisdom. Overall I think that the message of each devotion was relevant to the audience. As a woman, I felt like these women were kindred spirits, and I enjoyed their personal stories, and felt as if I was listening to my own friends share life stories. I didn't like that the devotions were long, though. When you have kids, and a crazy house like I do, it's hard to set something down in the middle of a chapter and then remember exactly what you were reading hours (or days) later when you pick it back up. I loved the space for notes, though, and overall I would give this book a 4/5.

A devotional spin off of the popular Sisterchicks books, this book is easily read and enjoyed with or without knowledge of the series. As a reader who has not read any of the Sisterchicks books, I was able to enjoy this devotional and to understand and appreciate it with no problem. Broken into sections, this is a small devotional with 3-4 readings per section. However, this creates a book easily used in a group study as well as personal, as it offers a quick dive into God's word through the witty writings of Gunn and Hannan. Quick to read yet so full of fun, light yet thoughtful readings, this devotional is a perfect quick study. Themed around the Sisterchicks, "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.", each study contains quotes, insights from "Robin's Nest" and "Cindy's Perch", a bit of "Wit and Whimsy" in the form of a laugh or a smile, several scripture verses offering the reader opportunity to "Take a Closer Look" and a space to journal thoughts. Well thought out and written, any woman will enjoy the journey through this devotional and gain insight and knowledge through the stories and scriptures. You can find this book at Barnes and Noble or other booksellers nationwide. I was provided a copy of this book to review through the Waterbrook Multnomah Blogging for Books program. I was in no way compensated for this review, nor was I required to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.

This devotional is a must read to all women! It will make a wonderful gift to give to teachers, friends, family, etc. I don't read a lot of devotionals and this didn't really seem like a devotional. Each day was more like a short story followed by and biblical writing. It speaks of things we experience on a daily basis and give you a very uplifting outlook. These ladies are true friends and it's what all women need. I received this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for free in exchange for an honest review.

One book that I really enjoyed reading and made me laugh this week is titled " Take Flight, A sisterchick Devotional" written by Robing Jones Gunn and Cindy Hannan. Don't worry if you have no clue what a sisterchick, "it is a friend who shares the deepest wonders of your heart, loves you like a sister and provide a reality check when you're being a brat." Take Flight! Robin and Cindy are true sister chicks through the thick and thin. Each devotional has a story written by Robin and then "From Cindy's Perch" has a Bible Verse or questions to ponder and allows the reader to respond in a written form. Robin addresses topics of faith, wonderful circumstances and moments of trials. She reaches a wide range of audiences with the way this devotional is written. Oh, I just love this devotional! It is so cute! I feel like I'm curling up in a book with friends and reflecting on the sisterchicks in my life. Robin Jones Gunn is my favorite author, so I was beyond thrilled to read this devotional book! Question: What did you do this weekend? Who is a Sisterchick in your life?

A Sisterchicks Devotional: Take Flight by Robin Jones Gunn & Cindy Hannan is a new little book written especially for fans of the Sisterchicks novel series. The talents of two writers: one who tells "God stories" and another who asks "gentle questions" were combined in this group effort to produce a unique and inviting devotional book. This pleasant new edition to an already saturated genre of Christian devotionals stands apart from other devotional books. With their personalized, friendly writing style, the two authors take on the role of the reader's own "Sisterchicks" - for those unfamiliar with the series of books, it is defined as 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". This small 138 page book is creatively designed with peaceful blue two tone graphics throughout, pleasant nature themed art and a some photographs throughout. This inviting book makes the reader want to read it. There are four themed sections, each containing three or four devotionals each. Excerpts from the book series, scripture and even quotes from real life personalities who earn the title of "Sisterchicks" are included as well such as Amy Carmichael and Fanny Crosby and Corrie Ten Boom. There is even brief space for the reader to write- which isn't nearly enough space but might encourage the reader to keep a journal. Gunn, author of the Sisterchicks series reflects upon God using personal anecdotes from her own life as a springboard for each topic. Her happy and fulfilling, and busy life- living in Hawaii, vacations, a beautiful wedding, lots of responsibility and too little time, and a loving daughter with faith- is something not many readers have the fortune to experience. Nevertheless the author does recognize that some readers may have less than ideal circumstances as she includes an entry based on a difficult time of her life when she had to temporarily live with her parents a few months. She does acknowledge that the "shipwrecked" time of life doesn't compare with some other traumatic situations people may face. Nor does the author reveal much information, which may lead to the reader wanting more information, raising even more questions. Was it due to a loss of employment or foreclosure ? Or was it a temporary place to live while waiting for a completion of a new custom dream home? The author needs to be a little more open in order to gain a greater connection with the reader. Although not the intent, I think that the fact Gunn leaves out the complete story and she mentions that "the details how we became so shipwrecked aren't essential to repeat at this point" page 58 call even more attention to the story behind the story, which may cause a rift in the personal connection she is trying to achieve with the reader. The reader may even feel as the author is holding out and that the personal connection to share intimate and personal details just simply is not there. I am sure most readers won't become too fixated on this point as I have, but as someone who has experienced hardships, I can't help but wonder why Robin Gunn feels as if she can't open up just a bit more. Overall this is a minor point when considering the scope of this lighthearted and enjoyable devotional. This devotional can be read once a day for two weeks or in a couple of sittings. IAs a blogger I received this book published by Multnomah for the purpose of writing this review.
