No Cape Required: A Devotional By Kristen Parrish - Book Review

Disclosure: I received a free book from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review. However, all opinions are my own.

Most of us what to be a super hero when we grow up. I wanted to be Wonder Woman, but then we grow up and realize there are no super powers or magic spells, just life. In Kristen Parrish's book No Cape Required: A Devotional she dispels the super hero myth that capes are required to be a super hero.

Kristen shows us 52 Ways to Unleash Your Inner Hero with the qualities of fifty-two different "heroes" from Superman’s justice and Dorothy’s courage you'll learn you don't need a cape, super strength, or even magic powers to find your inner hero.

Every mini devotions is filled with attributes you can learn from and instill in yourself. Your super hero strengths and character is already in you, you just have to discover it. You have to learn how to be the person God wants you to be. Kristen shows you what it takes to be a Godly hero without the bells and whistles. 

I give this easy to read devotional two thumbs up and five stars. You can pick up your copy at Thomas Nelson for $15.99. No Cape Required: A Devotional By Kristen Parrish makes a great gift for someone who is struggling to find their inner hero.

Description

What do Katniss Everdeen, Spider-Man, and Huckleberry Finn have in common? They’re heroesand you can be just like them.
As children, we dream of throwing on a cape and changing the world. Then we grow up, we learn to see the flaws in our movie stars and athletes, and we accept that true heroism is not possible in the real world.  You continue to dream, though. Isn't that why you still love watching heroes on the big screen? It’s more than just wish fulfillment. You resonate with Superman’s justice and Dorothy’s courage because you have those same qualities within yourself.
In these pages, Kristen Parrish looks at the qualities of fifty-two heroes, and then shows how you can acquire every one of those qualities. No gamma rays or radioactive spider bites are needed. You can unleash your inner hero through prayer and practical action.
Men and women, boys and girls alike, will find role models within these pages. While others watch and dream on the sidelines, you can step out in faith, learning from heroic examples and praying for God’s help to make you who you were meant to be.
The Holy Spirit enables us to do great things. Find out how. No cape required.
