Blogging for Books: Fierce Beauty Review

"As believers, we're called to reflect Him and become fierce and beautiful as well. We were created to serve an eternal purpose-not follow our mortal desires while wearing a crown of our making, but to follow the One who wears a crown of thorns. We were not made to live on the outskirts of a kingdom but to worship in awe at the throne of our King. We were not designed to be princesses of entitlement but warriors of encouragement, fighting to bring love and hope to the world." page 18 &19

This book started out really strong- the 1st chapter got me all fired up for a good Bible study, so I guess I was a little surprised to find it was really a series of short stories from Kims life- which is by no means boring! She hikes, snorkels in the sea, climbs mountains, rides horses and swims with sharks this woman. She leads an amazing life and the stories are grand adventures.
Each chapter tells a tale, usually illustrating a spiritual truth and application, which she points out and then ends with a few scriptures.
An enjoyable and inspiring book. It wasn't what I thought it was going to be...and I think there is huge potential with the 1st chapter; that could really be the introduction to a a powerful call to arms. She did have a call in the back of the book. Like I said, it was a good book, just not the power pack I had expected from the beginning.

See an inspirational video from Kim. I highly recommend you do.
