A woman's faith in God is challenged by the first question Satan asks Eve in the Bible: "Did God really say you canít 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 it's fear of flying or fear of being 'found out.' Maybe you donít 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 itís a constant "What if?," a nagging fear of abandonment or betrayal, fear of your own or someone elseís death, fear of trusting God's plan, or even the fear that God's 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!

Endorsements


Angie Smith has the rare gift to write a non-fiction page-turner as good as any fiction book I've read.† As her words tumbled out in raw honesty, fresh hope spread before me.† Her teachings on fear are comforting, practical, and gut honest.† I can't wait for you to read this life-changing book.† What Women Fear is one of my favorites this year.† Honestly, I think it will stay next to my bed for a very long time.



Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times best-selling author of Made to Crave

You don't have to be around Angie Smith very long to fall in love with her. She is funny and transparent with a passionate love for Christ. In What Women Fear Angie holds up a mirror so that we can see ourselves from every angle, the thoughts we display on the front shelves of our lives and those we hide. The greatest gift tucked into this book is the overwhelming picture of the mercy of our God who understands our fears and invites us to stand beside Him in the rain and let His love wash us clean.

Sheila Walsh, author of The Shelter of God's Promises

Whatever high wire youíre walking right now, there really is nobody you want at the other end of the line like Angie Smith. And this rare gem of a book is like a steadying, sure hand taking you right into His presence in ways you never imagined. Vivid, profoundly biblical, yet girlfriend real with just-the-medicine-you-need-funny, every page is reviving hope for every woman. Simply, Angie Smith is a Bible teacher for such a time as this.

Ann Voskamp, New York Times best-selling author of One Thousand Gifts
