About the Play With Fire Study

The Same Fire That Destroys Life is the Same Fire That Can Transform Life!

Play with Fire, the debut Bible study by popular speaker and teacher Bianca Juárez Olthoff, is a Bible-infused message that will help you 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 you to fulfill your God-given calling and Kingdom purpose.

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.

God isn't waiting until you have more resources or a spouse 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!

Meet Your Study Teacher: Bianca Juárez Olthoff

I’m a writer and teacher in love with two men: Jesus and my husband, Matt. 

I didn’t learn how to read until I was eleven, but now I can’t put down books. I ask questions, but most times I don’t want the answer unless it’s something I want to hear. I believe in a faithful God, even when I’m faithless. I’m a woman who loves God and is committed to speaking truth when it hurts, loving when it’s hard, and living life out loud.

I spend most of my time working as Chief Storyteller for The A21 Campaign, a global anti-human trafficking organization. By day I’m a freedom writer who advocates for justice, but at night I’m a step-mom who loves to have dance parties with Parker, Ryen, and Ricci [aka The Cutest Dog In The World].

Passionate about God’s word, I teach around the globe and blog about life, love, and the pursuit of Jesus. Whether discussing topics from justice to pop culture, I’ve spent ten years building the Church and mobilizing God’s people to action alongside Matt, Lead Outreach Pastor at Mariners Church in Irvine, California.

What people are saying about Play With Fire 

En fuego! Bianca is on fire. Her words form a pathway—through her own journey—to freedom and transformation. Her raw honesty and unwavering belief in God’s plan for your life is contagious, and I’m excited to see how this book sparks a wildfire of faith.

- Jen Hatmaker, New York Times bestselling author of For the Love

Change and transformation isn’t easy, but using her personal story and the stories of others throughout the Bible, Bianca shares with us ways to not only survive the flames of life, but THRIVE in the midst of trials. As a mentor and guide in her life, I’m excited that Bianca shares her journey to help others become the people God has called them to be through understanding the power of the Holy Spirit. Not only has Bianca written about the transforming power of God, she has lived it out.

- Christine Caine, Bestselling author, teacher, and founder of A21 and Propel Women

I love this book written by my fiery Puerto Rican sister, Bianca! Her transparent stories will stir your passion and position you to flourish amid the fires of chaos, exhaustion, and confusion.

- Lisa Bevere, Messenger International, Bestselling author of Lioness Arising, Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry, and Fight Like a Girl
