Sistergirl Devotions by Carol M. Mackey

(This is from the press release for Sistergirl Devotions. My copy is MIA--somewhere in my stacks...but I didn't want YOU to miss out! Be watching for my review soon!)

As the editor-in-chief of the esteemed Black Expressions Book Club, Carol M. Mackey has her pulse on African American women and what they’re reading, thinking about and their search for information that speaks to their daily lives and struggles.

Struggles especially crop up at the place where most women spend the bulk of their time: at work. With workplace stresses ranging from bad bosses to gossipy coworkers to a lack of passion for
what you’re getting paid to do, what’s a Christian woman to do? Sometimes it can feel like your faith is putting in overtime, too,
just to get you through the week.

Through her book, Sistergirl Devotions, Mackey speaks to these and other hurdles that working women face through a collection of 90 insightful and inspiring readings. Using Scripture, conventional wisdom and stories from her own experiences, Mackey teaches readers how their faith provides timeless and trusting answers to these daily struggles. Each devotion also offers a “Power Move,” which gives readers actionable tips for applying these principles to their own lives and careers.

Topics that Mackey addresses through these devotions include:
o Making the most of your opportunities at work
o Establishing your identity at work
o How to serve your way to greatness
o Standing up for what’s right
o Managing conflicts and toxic coworkers
o Confronting painful situations with grace
o Bouncing back after a setback
o Keys to managing others
o Striking a healthy work-life balance
o Discipleship on and off the job
o Watch God multiply your talents and gifts
o Remain humble as you achieve success
