In this five-session video based Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Bianca Juarez Olthoff delivers a bible-infused message that will help women gain new insight into God's character, discover the personal and powerful nature of the Holy Spirit, and understand the unique fire God places in each person, helping them to fulfill their God-given calling and Kingdom purpose.
Fire can burn and destroy but it can also refine and bring beautiful new life. In each powerful video session you will be reminded, or perhaps learn for the first time, that God has HUGE dreams for you. 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.
God isn't waiting until you have more resources or a husband or a job so he can use you. He can use you now. Stop asking when you are going to get your gifts or talents or calling and see what's in your hand. You need to play with some fire.

Raw, real, and relatable, this book 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 book 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 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.
Study guide and video study also available.
As Christians, we have gotten so comfortable with singing worship songs, listening to podcasts and going to conferences about being a champion, an overcomer, a chosen child of God. But do we believe it? Do we believe there is power in perseverance to transform our lives? Until we actually believe it, we will not have the integrity and strength to stand back up.
This five-session video Bible study will take a look at the life and ministry of Paul the Apostle as a prototype for perseverance. Paul’s grit was the genesis of his transformation—it can be ours, too. This study is about a universal fight that takes soul, body, and mind to decide to not remain on the mat of life, but to tap into the strength and power of Jesus Christ and get back up to fight again. “For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again…” (Proverbs 24:16).

Whether by choice or circumstances out of our control, we will have moments where we feel like we've been punched out, dragged down, or knocked out. What do we do in those situations? You must learn to persevere.
Perseverance requires a deep sense of hope, and thought leader, pastor, and podcaster, Bianca Juárez Olthoff, knows that personally. But it's not just any hope. It's a hope firmly rooted in something other than mere wishes and finger-crossing. This is a hope we have in our future that is rooted in the One who can go beyond our wildest dream to accomplish more than we could ever imagine. However, we must be willing to do the work of cultivating grit throughout every circumstance.
Using the life of Paul the Apostle as a case study, Bianca shows how grit was the genesis of his transformation from a judgmental Pharisee to a world-changing follower of Jesus. In Grit Don't Quit, Bianca will help you:
- Identify how to cultivate perseverance
- Discover the cost and benefit of resilience
- Develop a theological framework for rebounding from loss
- Understand how grit can change your life
- Apply practical principles to increase emotional, mental, and spiritual strength
If we can prove to ourselves that the true power is getting back up, we can prove to others that success isn't only for the smart, talented, or well-connected. No matter how many times we fall, our real power comes from when we get back up. Get up, live full, and die empty.
