Fear Fighting: A Book Review

About The Book:

We all live with fear. It hangs around, whispering in our ears, reminding us of all we can't do or will never be. But that's not the end of the story. We also have a God who draws close to say, Fear not. I am with you. This Spirit transforms us into fear fighters--women breaking free of trepidation to find bold dedication to God's peace-, purpose-, and joy-filled callings.

With remarkable compassion born from personal experience, Kelly Balarie shows women how to

· Cultivate unstoppable faith by harnessing God's Word and promptings
· Usher in lasting peace through prayers that reduce panic, blood pressure, and stress
· Discover clear and immediate action plans to exchange worry for God's greatest gifts
· Implement daily bravery decrees to stand armed throughout the day
· Participate in a twelve-week study guide to foster new courageous habits
 
Kelly pulls back the curtain of fear so you can find the beautiful woman God created you to be.

About The Author:

Kelly Balarie has lived her subject matter. Her faith was built as she battled through an eating disorder, depression, serious health concerns, company failures, family tragedies, job losses, and times without income. Throughout it all, Kelly has looked past the pain to pursue God's always-unfolding plan. Kelly is a featured blogger at Crosswalk.com and iBelieve.com. Her work has been featured on Relevant, (in)courage.me, and Today's Christian Woman. She lives with her husband and two toddlers near the sun-soaked shores of the East Coast.

My Review:

Fear. It is something that can completely freeze you up from living life or it can be squashed and tossed so we can life the full, fearless life that God so badly wants each of us to do. Sometimes fear is shortlived (like the way I feel during a thunderstorm) or it can be completely debilitating (like anxiety). Author Kelly Balarie realized that fear comes in all types and walks the reader through her own journey through many situations that could have paralyzed her with fear (and did for some time). Through God, she fought those fears so she could ultimately become an inspiration to other women who deal with similar situations. She writes with a exurberance and friendliness that was so incredibly refreshing and made me feel like it was only her and I having a great conversation over tea. She goes through some of the more common fears we has as women and gives great practical ideas for overcoming them so we can be fearless for Him!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
