What Women Fear: Walking in Faith that Transforms by Angie SmithA womans faith in God is challenged by the first question Satan asks Eve in the Bible: Did God really say you can’t eat from any tree in the garden? That seed of doubt and the story it begins to unfold breed a concept of fear still haunting each of us on some level every day-the idea that our actions could ruin something beautiful, and God might not have control of things.
In What Women Fear, acclaimed writer and speaker Angie Smith admits, fear is a major part of my testimony and talks openly about her treatment for anxiety as a child. Giving a voice to the problem, she says, I truly believe every single one of us struggles with some type of fear, whether its fear of flying or fear of being found out. Maybe you don’t worry about dying, but you get sick thinking about the fact that you might fail.
Rather than suggesting that those who truly love the Lord would never fear, Angie blends her own experiences with those of men and women from throughout Scripture to help us start dealing more effectively with these true, human emotions. Whether it’s a constant What if?, a nagging fear of abandonment or betrayal, fear of your own or someone else’s death, fear of trusting Gods plan, or even the fear that Gods existence is a lie, Angie will walk you through stories of others who have simultaneously loved God and struggled with fear. Join Angie and discover how to let Jesus redeem this struggle as only He can, that He will be glorified, and you will be transformed!
