Well I have to say I am super excited about sharing this book with you all, and it isn’t even because I wrote it (honest!). I have found that in the areas where I have the most insecurity, there is also the potential for the best community and I hope that’s the case with this book.
I have a feeling that each of you can relate to at least one of the fears that are discussed in the book, even if you went into it thinking you wouldn’t. I can’t wait to see what sticks out to you as important and worthy of fleshing out together, and I really can’t wait to read all of your comments and thoughts on each chapter.
We had a BLAST filming these, and while some faces (shhh! We aren’t announcing who will be with us, so you’ll have to tune in each week to see. But I will say they are a bunch of amazing ladies:)) may be familiar, others might not. We chose women we thought could represent those fears the best based on their life stories, and they did not disappoint.
My prayer for this study is twofold-firstly I pray that you feel safe here among your fellow sojourners, and I also hope that you are willing to stick your neck out and share some of the shadows in your life that may have been haunting you for years. My friend Heather talks about “the gift of going first,” and I think it’s true. Oftentimes we aren’t courageous enough to be the first one at the microphone, but we ease up when we see we aren’t alone. We’ve done the hard work for you, and left the door wide open for you to find yourself a comfy spot beside us.
There are some misconceptions about fear that I think are worth looking at, as well as one fear we are actually called to have. I really do pray that you will bless us with your thoughts as we go through each, all the while sharing our hearts and our stories with open arms.
It’s an honor to be on this side of the book club, and I can’t wait to jump in with all of you phenomenal ladies. Please know I am praying for each of you and am EAGER to hear from you. Let’s face these battles together, arms linked and always relying on the only One we know can get us to the finish line.
Lord, we love you and we pray that You are blessed by the weeks to come as we seek to know You and Your perfect will for our lives…
