How Put Your Warrior Boots On is Changing People

Full disclosure moment: I am a skeptic and a hard sell.

It’s not necessarily my favorite thing to admit and a far less positive thing to be in life when it comes to well-intentioned people with good hearts that sometimes don’t get their fair shake from me. But when it comes to saving myself from a room full of unnecessary infomercial products the TV sucked me into buying one late night while flipping through channels, I’m your girl.

But when someone gives personal testimony about why they love something or believes in something or how something they bought or have in their home or on their bookshelf that they’ve read has in some way changed their life for the better, I’m listening.

The truth is, all of us love a first-hand witness.

I can tell you all day long to get your copy of Put Your Warrior Boots On: Walking Jesus Strong Once and For All. I believe in this message so strongly, and I hope by now you trust my heart for Jesus and my deep desire to help His kids. But I wrote the book. So, of course, I want you to get it.

So I thought you might want to hear firsthand from everyday friends who didn’t write the book but instead, read it – carpool moms, laundry doing, office working, college student, Jesus following – who were impacted by the words and in some specific ways. You can read many similar reviews at Amazon.com, but here are just a few…

“For years I have wrestled with fear, worry, and insecurity. As our teenage daughter went to high school, the fear ramped up as our eyes were opened to all that our kids are dealing with on a daily basis. My desire to walk out a faith and strong identity in front of our girls led me to this book.

The declarations in this book have challenged me, stretched me, and given words and actions to what I had been feeling. This book is an easy read, as you will not want to put it down when you start. The only problem I’ve had is not highlighting everything on every page. If you have ever struggled with fear, worry, or insecurity, I can’t recommend this book enough.” – Jennifer

“From the moment I started reading this book, I was captivated by Lisa’s words on each and every page! In all honesty, I don’t remember the last time I read a book that spoke such realness. I have marked, underlined and dog-eared more pages than I can count and have reread multiple parts because these God-breathed words are so powerful and convicting.” – Jess

•••

“When I read Lisa Whittle’s I Want God, I thought it couldn’t get any better. But then I began to read Put Your Warrior Boots On and I must say, this book has wrecked me in all the best ways. This book comes with an urgent and timely message. Lisa has a special way of speaking right to your heart but also delivering truth (even when it hurts to hear). It is high time we rise up for the Kingdom of God and stop being so fearful of things. I also love that the book already comes with a study guide built into its pages. If you lead a small group or just want to use it for personal study, the question and reflection activities are very useful.

Don’t hesitate anymore. Pick up this book. It’ll change you. It’ll move you. It’ll inspire you to warrior up. Walking Jesus strong couldn’t come at a better time.” – Amanda

“‘Keep your mind clear. Raise your standards. Don’t leave your post. These are the heart understandings of a warrior boots believer, the ways in which we will become strong.’ Lisa’s book is a refreshing, pointed, and truth-filled call to strap on our warrior boots and live the kind of life God has called us to – one of abundance, not mediocrity. Her words challenge while her stories comfort and free us from the expectation that to walk Jesus strong requires bravery (spoiler alert: it doesn’t). With discussion questions, small group guides, and journaling space built in, this is an amazing book for your summer book club or Bible study – no extra books, studies, or resources required!” – Crystal

It’s the official release day of our book, Put Your Warrior Boots On: Walking Jesus Strong Once and For All, and this is indeed, a good, good day.

We’ve anticipated this day, talked about it for what probably seems like years and years, and now it’s finally arrived.

Yes. It’s our book. And yes, you are a partial host of this party. I wrote the book. But your burdens and concerns authored every page. I’ve been listening closely. And I’ve taken our cares to God and typed like mad all the things He’s shown me to help us all become Jesus Strong from this point on.

So all there is to say now is: thank you, Jesus. Use this book to create strong warriors for You.

  • If you know someone who is walking around reactionary, afraid or living below their spiritual potential, I believe God will bless you as you bless them with a copy
  • If you feel the urgency right now to grab some girlfriends and rally together to get strong, I would love for you to do a group study

It was my honor to write this book. It is my joy to watch Jesus do with it what He wants. And now, let us party like crazy over some Jesus Strong warriors we are about to become!!

I love you like crazy, and I love Jesus most!

Put Your Warrior Boots On Is Also a Book Study!

Study Videos Available June 1!

I can’t think of anything that excites me more than people locking arms and studying the Word of God and a book about fortifying our faith and lives together!

“Many pairs of warrior boots marching strongly together are the sound of the Church in its greatest effectiveness. The army of God. The servants of God. The adopted kids. Together, the warriors.” ~ Put Your Warrior Boots On

 

We put our warrior boots on singularly, but we march through this life, together.

We need each other.

We make each other better.

In every way, we are stronger, together.

For this reason, I included a Book Study right within the pages of Put Your Warrior Boots On called the 10-10-35 Warrior Up Book Study  – for you to do with your friends. I’m so excited about this, especially because of ALL IT INCLUDES:

  • An icebreaker question to open every study.
  • 10 minutes of VIDEO with me available for download for those who purchase the book (book study video for me for the first time!)
  • Scripture for you to take a deeper dive.
  • Questions for small group discussion.
  • Bonus Home Helps for you to do solo during the week.
  • All any leader would need to take the stress out of leading a group!

It’s literally all inside the pages of the book. 2 for the price of 1, for real.

And the videos to go with it, to help you as you lead: TOTALLY FREE.

So grab 10, 20, 100 of your friends and study this book, together. 8 chapters, only an 8-week commitment (or less, if you’re quick and want to combine chapters).

Rise, FIGHT, Take Back Your Life

I know we (especially we, the women) don’t like the strong words like fight sometimes because so many mean ones floating out around there right now and who needs more?

But strong and mean aren’t anywhere close to being the same – truth be told it takes a lot of strong not to join the mean…and strong to do most anything and everything right now, crazy as the world is, now doesn’t it?

Today is a good example.

I hear from someone who is about to step into a ditch – a mess of her own choosing all because the anger is getting the best of her and reaction is bossing her to death. And I text beg her as loving strong as I know how to please not let Satan win this moment. To please be onto him.

Because here’s the thing, and all of us that follow Jesus know it well: Satan wants to take us down and best yet if it’s by the hands of our own doing. Never more bitter are the tears of personal consequence, and many of us have cried so many at this point we’ve lost count.

We’ve got the giving into the temptation piece down. Same with the giving into the fear, the anxiety, the complacency, the terror-filled running away.

What we don’t have down is the rising up, the fighting back, the taking back of our life…the using of our recourse (James 4:7-8), the tapping into the Power (Jesus), the refusal to be a victim of reactionary living anymore.

We are believers who live like non-believers with prettier Sunday clothes.

I’m so done with all that. I’m tired of seeing my brothers and sisters in Christ suffer from paralyzing worry. I’m unwilling to watch us waste half our life not grabbing onto the victorious life that is already ours because some liar who has already been defeated keeps stopping us cold with powerless taunts and threats.

Friends, it is time to rise, to change the way we walk through this world, once and for all.

No more tomorrow I’ll do it…when my kids grow up I’ll do it…after I do this and that.

Today.

There’s never been a more crucial time to take back the life that is already yours through Jesus.

There’s nothing holding us back but the word no. So friends, instead LET’s GO.

I promise you this. If this is what you want: Put Your Warrior Boots On is the first place to start.

I love you, warriors in the making.

I love Jesus, most.

Always His,

“We don’t need spiritual decorations;
we need spiritual declarations over our life.”

Put Your Warrior Boots On
Chapter 1, I Am Able

People are starting to read this book, Put Your Warrior Boots On, and saying how it’s impacting them, infusing strength inside, and all I can do is just offer the praise back to God because this was the intention.

I didn’t write a book to tell us all the placating, pretty things. There are plenty of other books for that. I wrote this book to help us, really help us. I am in this life for lasting impact, so may my writing always stay consistent with that life quest.

Stay with me…I’m getting somewhere with this, but I must ask you a question because trust me, I like pretty.

Did I ever tell you that at one time I wanted to be an interior decorator? I did, and I have the brochures from the Art Institute of Charlotte to prove it. Before God decided different, I wanted to design pretty spaces for people to look it, since creating and art and beauty are favorites of mine.

Which brings me to my point.

Today I get to combine my past and my present in one beautiful thing.

I get to offer you something pretty to hang in your house with powerful words that change the atmosphere of the room, and most importantly the heart.

All 8 declarations from Put Your Warrior Boots On in one gorgeous limited edition art piece from the amazing and powerful House of Belonging.

YES.

IT’S TRUE.

Pretty + Truth-filled = powerful combination.

I Am Jesus Strong – Spoken Word Video

I’m nervous.
Today I share with you the thing that intimidated and exhilarated me, all at the same time.
I was so moved by it that it had me in tears by the time I finished.
I’m sharing it with you today, half parts thrilled to death, half parts scared to death.
But that about describes the whole Christian life, now doesn’t it?
Watch. Nod in agreement. Share, that the world might know of our GREAT GOD.
I love you.
I love Jesus most.
Always His,
