Imagine what it would be like to look your fears in the face and refuse to let them keep you from living freely and fully. Think how your life would change.'God gave me the challenge of writing about fear in order to teach me how to live without fear,' writes Sheila Walsh. 'I was afraid of so many things. I was afraid to give an unconditional Yes! to God. What if he brought me to a darker night than I would be able to bear?'If you, like Sheila, have struggled with the seeming conflict between God’s promises and life’s sometimes shattering realities, you’ll marvel at the refreshing honesty and insight in this book. Stripping away faith’s candy coating, Sheila points the way to living with both your eyes and your heart open. With heartfelt candor, she articulates the fears and exposes the lust for control most of us avoid facing. And she points beyond them to the truly abundant life. It’s not a life of unquenchable smiles and Superwoman faith. It’s more real than that--and more powerful, and more joyous.Join Sheila on a journey that begins with Telling the Truth and proceeds through Facing Your Fears to your destination--Finding His PeaceAlong the way, the moving, gut-level stories of fellow travelers will inspire you not to retreat from life but to embrace it with open arms. Living Fearlessly helps you discover a faith that transcends the quest for security in an insecure and broken world and rests instead on who God is. His unchanging character--not life’s changing circumstances--is your foundation for peace and joy. It’s the key to loving well and living free, giving and receiving wholeheartedly in your relationships, and resting on God’s strong grace in the face of your weaknesses.Living Fearlessly will help you loosen your grip on life--so you can receive life back with open hands from a faithful Father who loves you beyond anything you can imagine.
