Publisher's Summary

Play with Fire, the debut book by popular speaker and teacher Bianca Juarez Olthoff, is the reminder that God isn't waiting until you have more resources or a spouse or a job so he can use you. He's ready to use you now.
Using the mythical creature the phoenix, which was also referenced by early church leaders, she parallels this story with God's work in her own life, highlighting the beauty of reinvention with fire as both the impetus and the method for change. Olthoff reminds us that we serve a god who is redemptive and can take the worst situations and use them for his glory.
Play with Fire is a Bible-infused message that will help women discover:

The way out of the middle is moving forward
The personal and powerful nature of the Holy Spirit
The power and sacrifice of transformation
The unique calling and purpose of life involves transformation

With Olthoff's distinct style, strong storytelling gifts, and powerful Bible teaching, Play with Fire will remind listeners that God has huge dreams for them. In Bianca's words, "He's whispering in the wind and speaking through the fire and shouting in silence the extraordinary dream he is birthing in you. His dream for you is far greater than the dream you have for yourself. It's not your identity or income or influence that will make this happen. Like Zechariah 4:6 says, 'It's not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the Lord.'" It's time to play with fire.

Even better on Audible!

I have actually enjoyed the hard copy of this book multiple times and it's honestly better with every read. It truly comes alive, though, when being read aloud by the author herself. She's an absolutely captivating storyteller and the quick cover-to-cover floats by like a long lunch with a dear, old friend. It's real and raw, filled with laughs (and some tears) but packed with unassuming candor and solid spiritual fundamentals. More than worth repeated rereads.

So Real!

As a 31 year old woman walking through her own desert season, Bianca's book was completely refreshing and relatable. I loved that she was so open and real with her struggles especially when it came to submitting her life to the Lord. She didn't sugar coat and it was funny. I highly recommend this book!!
