  1. I have almost let this slip a dozen times!! It’s been hard to keep it a secret :). Cannot wait to get into this study with y’all–it’s a message we ALL need to hear.

  2. Y’all are so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it. πŸ™‚ I want to come film videos with you just for the laughter and friendship. πŸ™‚ This book looks wonderful and like something I need. Can’t wait!

    • Candace,

      Let’s All Be Brave is FULL of takeaways you’ll remember for a long, long time. Stay tuned… πŸ™‚

  3. Hi! First time I am ahead of the game! I have already read the book which was great but I can’t wait for the videos! Love these online book clubs.

    • Kristen,

      Wow–good for you! I bet you see even more when you go through it a second time. Can’t wait to hear your perspective.

  4. The video is too funny! Looking forward to the study – read the book when it first came out & it’s awesome! Looking forward to reading it again!

  5. Ok, this is my first book study with all of you. Don’t know what to do. Do I just buy the book and wait for instructions? Or do I need to sign up or do something else? Please let me know. Thank you!

  6. Annie, you are awesome! I woke up so tired this morning, and you made me laugh so hard that I bounced right out of bed with a big smile on my face. Looking forward to reading your book (and watching you be crazy with our girls on the couch.)

  7. What a cute announcement! I just read this for the first time recently, but I’d love to follow along and discuss this with a group!

  8. So fun to see Annie’s book out! I loved meeting you both here for IE and seeing Annie on the couch in the video just made me smile so much! Can’t wait to read it!!! Glad the cat is out of the bag!

  9. Going to be jumping in for this study! I’ve tried to do previous studies but it just hasn’t worked. Hopeful this time it will! πŸ™‚

  10. Ever since Pursue the Intentional Life, I’ve been looking forward to the new Bloom study, but with the Consilium, the 31 day writing challenge, my WOW group (name credited to Robin Dance), and work, I’m a little –OK a lot–worried I won’t be able to do this. But the video alone made me want to read this. Laughter is something I could always use! I think I’ll try to read it with fewer colors and just enjoy the book and the comment threads. xo

  11. This book club will be my first experience with Bloom. Just wondering if you have to be active on FB to be a part of the study. Will the discussion be taking place here or on the FB “group”?

  12. WOW! I absolutely loved this book and was blessed to hear what Annie had to say about each chapter she wrote. This has given me that final push I needed to be brave in my own life. God has been working on me in multiple ways in the last few months and I am feeling confident to move ahead with both…one being family related and the other about my writing and getting families in the bible together. As I was reading this book, God flooded my mind and heart…in fact, my life with the ideas and courage I needed to step out in faith. Thank you, Annie, for being brave enough to write these words and allowing your courage to spark mine.
