Fear Fighting
Kelly Balarie

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
· Pray panic-, blood pressure- and stress-reducing prayers to usher in lasting peace
· Discover clear and immediate action plans to exchange worry for God’s greatest gifts
· Implement daily bravery decrees to stand armed through the day
· Participate in a 12-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.

My Review:

Fear is something we all suffer from. Some fear death, some fear loosing a loved one, some fear finances, the list can go on and on. Fear can control us if we let it, it can ruin our lives causing us to shut people out of our lives but most importantly it can cause us to loose faith in God. I will be the first to say that fear is my worst enemy, fear never leaves me alone, its like that annoying person who you wish would take a hint and leave. But what if we cut the cord with Fear, what would happen? Would we feel free able to carry on a life of meaning, carry on a relationship with God, the One who loves us unconditionally?

There are ways to learn to fight fear and one of those ways is with Kelly Balarie’s new book Fear Fighting: Awakening Courage to Overcome Your Fears. When this book arrived in my mail box, I was apprehensive at first because I have tried a lot of ways to fight fear and nothing was working, but after I began reading Kelly’s story, I knew I could fight fear too. Kelly uses her own personal story along with showing women how to cultivate unstoppable faith by harnessing God’s Word and promptings, prayers to usher in a lasting peace, how to discover clear and immediate action plans, implement daily bravery decrees and participate in a 12-week study to guide that will foster new courageous habits.

Take it from someone who doesn’t feel courageous, who hates change, who lets fear walk over her, that if this book can change her life, it will change yours. Kelly’s book was a life saver for me and it is one that I will keep close by because I know Fear will rear its ugly head and I will be ready to take a stand a not let fear control me any longer.

I received a copy of this book for free, however a favorable review was not required of me and all opinions expressed are my own.
