I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty tired of the struggle. You know which one I mean—fear, loneliness, not knowing who I am or what I’m meant to do. . . . Sound familiar?
I struggled with insecurity, comparison, and isolation for too many years, from thigh gaps to eyebrows to the lifestyles I felt I had to live up to. I was so afraid of being “found out,” that everyone in my life would somehow figure out that I was fearful and small and that I struggled to make my faith a reality and to be secure in who I am. It took a major perspective shift from staring at comments on a screen to really digging into the pages of my Bible to see what God actually says about overcoming fear.
Setting aside the fear, anxiety, and comparison to become the joy-filled person God created you to be is exactly what God is inviting you into. To really be seen and known. To be an agent of change by choosing compassion, connection, and acceptance for everyone you come in contact with. Inside this book are ways to find your power, passion, and purpose—and reach for your dreams. Plus, there are places to jot down notes, fun lists, practical ways to make changes, and thoughts on how living fearless can change everything.
Are you tired of the awful comparison game? Are you exhausted from trying to keep up, from feeling small and afraid that people will find the real you and be disappointed? There is so much more for you. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what your fears are, freedom is available to you. It’s just a matter of saying yes. You in?
Hope you’ll join me on this wild adventure as we learn to Live Fearless together.
I’ll be honest – I was skeptical about reading this book. Sadie Robertson’s a celebrity, not an author. Even though I know her family proclaims faith in the holy trinity, I’ve read some “Christian” books published by Thomas Nelson that I would not consider Christian at all (just because a book includes a Bible verse doesn’t mean it follows Biblical principles). But as a fan of Duck Dynasty and Dancing with the Stars, I really wanted to read this book.
In short, I am thoroughly impressed with Sadie’s spiritual maturity and Biblical foundation. Unlike many modern American “Christians,” she doesn’t offer advice based on her feelings or circumstances – throughout the entire book she continually goes back to the Bible, using scripture as her guiding light and foundation. She doesn’t promise an easy life, prosperity, or the absence of fear, but she does remind the reader of God’s promises and shares examples of how God has worked in her life.
I really could go on about how impressed I am by this young woman’s faith, Biblical foundation, and humility. I’m excited to pass this book along to my tweenage niece, and I hope she will share it with others who are interested in finding freedom in Christ (as opposed to asking God to make their lives easier).
