Summary

Raw, real, and relatable, this audiobook is your guide to navigating life's fires. Bianca Olthoff is here to show that our struggles and hardships may be the fire that refines us instead of destroys us, brings us hope instead of despair, and leads us right into the arms of a God who loves us.

Play with Fire, the debut audiobook 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.

Study guide and video study also available.

It What I Expected

Love Bianca. It I thought this would have more biblical teaching and practical tips for living a spirit filled life of faith. But it’s more of a memoir about their own journey. Good book but it was a bit boring and unhelpful. Sadly, I didn’t have one take away.

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.

Encouraging!

If you are in need of encouragement and inspiration, this is the book to read. At times in our walk we get to the place we feel it’s not working. As Bianca is transparent in her struggles we see GOD show up and manifest in her life transforming her faith to maturity as she deals with her own life and her mom’s illness. I really enjoyed this book and plan to read it again..

It's a re-read. loved it.

It's a re-read. loved it. This book really makes you realize what we make our god's (lower case g) instead of making our might God first in our lives.
