When life hits unexpectedly and God is seemingly silent, what do you do? How is transformation possible when life’s struggles seem impossible?

Through vulnerable, humorous, and powerful storytelling, Bianca Juaréz Olthoff shares her personal struggle to decide if God is really enough, if He is truly faithful. What she discovers as He takes her through the fire of spiritual transformation is life-changing.

Charting God’s fingerprints in her own life, Bianca highlights the beauty of reinvention and resurrection, with fire as both the impetus and the method for change.

You will discover: 

  • The personal and powerful nature of the Holy Spirit
  • The power of surrender and transformation
  • The unique calling and purpose of the fire He’s placed within you

Ultimately, Play With Fire will remind us that we serve a God who is redemptive, a God who can take our trials and shortcomings and use them for His glory. 

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 time to play with fire.
