Woman Roars Book Club
....finding Christ in every story
If you’d love to join a book club that is organized around your ideal schedule, reads different book types and genres, and relates each from a Biblical worldview, then this is the group for you! We are a community of Christians who like to read (or listen to books via Audible) and delve deeply into how stories, whether secular or Christian, can impact our lives for good.
As Christians, God has told us that we are not of the world, but that we are to be in the world (John 17) making a difference for good. And what are we to do while we’re in the world? Well, to make disciples of all nations by teaching and baptizing of course (Matt 28)! Being in the world allows us the opportunity to share Jesus.
We have an obligation to help others see the world through a holy lens. God did not intend for us to only hang out with each other but meant for us to be salt and light to those who don’t know Him.
Therefore, we read and discuss popular secular books as well as religious books, so that we can be ready to make a defense to anyone who asks us for a reason for the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3). This also helps us have a forum from which we can possibly strike up a conversation with those who are searching for Jesus. It’s a type of evangelism!
Our book discussions focus on helping each other see the positive amid the negative. To discover joy in all circumstances. To find the silver lining on all clouds. To see God in every story.
Read the debut book by popular speaker and teacher Bianca Juarez Olthoff
Play with Fire is the reminder that God is not 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 Fireis 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 Firewill remind readers 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."
