Take Flight

Author: Robin Jones Gunn and Cindy Hannan
Publisher: Multnomah
ISBN: 1-59052-537-X
Genre: Devotional

Based on Robin Jones Gunn’s popular Sisterchick series, TAKE FLIGHT takes a quote from one of the Sisterchick novels, and uses it to combine key Scripture verses, wit and whimsy wisdom, with a devotional to minister to someone who wants to dig deeper into God’s grace and TAKE FLIGHT.

Using the theme of birds, TAKE FLIGHT has sections entitled:

Ø Bird’s-eye view
Ø On a wing and a prayer
Ø Take a flying leap
Ø Under the shadow of His wing

TAKE FLIGHT explores the grace stories of life, and will be reminded that even in moments that seem graceless, God’s hand kept you from tumbling into oblivion. And His grace will keep you from future free falls, regardless of what awaits you.

I read this devotional while I was in the hospital recovering from surgery—a surgery I didn’t want and never dreamed I’d have—all the while facing a difficult road that I don’t want to travel down. But God used portions of this book to minister to me in my moments of distress. Even though the tone of the book is warm and humorous, it does have moments of seriousness and there is even spots for you to pen your own thoughts about the scriptures, the devotions, or whatever. $14.99 hardcover. 136 pages.
