About the Author

Annie Downs is an author and speaker based in Nashville, Tennessee. Flawed but funny, she uses her writing to highlight the everyday goodness of a real and present God. By weaving together personal stories, humor, and Scripture, she invites the young women reading to experience fulfilled lives with a God who made them on purpose and loves them deeply. When she’s not writing books or traveling for speaking events, Annie spends her days writing all over the internet—blogging at AnnieBlogs.com and incourage.me, sharing truths about her life in Nashville as a single Christian woman and the stories that are woven into each day. Annie is a huge fan of singer/songwriters, burritos, the Internet, her community of friends, and sports of all kinds.

And you'll feel like you're not alone in the world, and that you can do for others what Annie has done for you--take someone's hand and say, "Let's All Be Brave."

As I read this book I was reminded of areas of my own life where God may be calling me to be brave.

This book was everything I hoped it would be. Reading these pages, Annie's voice sounds like courage and feels like friendship, offering hope and perspective for those of us who want to live free instead of scared.

I am in love with the cover, but she doesn't walk a tight-rope over Nashville even once in this book. Instead, she speaks to the small corner in each of our souls where courage already lives, inviting us to access the bravery required to do regular, life-living things - make a new friend, go on a blind date, move to a new city, hold on to hope.

I appreciate how Annie honors the courage it takes to do the regular things, but she also nudges me a little outside my introverted comfort zone. One of my biggest takeaways from this book is actually summed up in the title - Let's All Be Brave - because no one is brave alone.

Funny. Smart. Beautiful.

I loved this book. And I am thinking that everyone who reads this book wants Annie to be their best friend.

I walked into this book with curiosity about one woman's story. But I walked out of it with far more. Annie makes me feel brave. And she makes me know -- for sure -- that bravery isn't about being fearless. It's about being *less controlled by my fear.* It's about doing the next thing, and the thing after that -- even if it scares you a little.

It's about living life with everything we've got. And not fretting over those places where we think we lack.

There's all kinds of freedom tucked between these covers. Just for you.

I highly recommend the book to readers everywhere who want to make the world a better place -- a world that starts right under your own two feet.

Reading this book is like having a long conversation with a very good friend. I didn't know Annie from Adam until she cohosted the simulcast of the IF: gathering in Austin in February. She came into my basement through the magic of the Internet and made me feel like her new friend.

Annie writes like she lives--authentically and openly. She's like that friend, that good friend you have who will really tell you like it is. She won't make it hard to hear because she knows what she's saying is challenging,but she finds a way to say it through her own stories so that you realize you can do what she did and find the way God's whispering to you to be brave.

If you read this book, you'll be encouraged to take steps toward a dream you may have buried and left for dead. You'll consider the better side of the pain of letting go of something, even when you don't know what the next thing will be that your hands will hold. You'll enjoy laughing out loud while reading a book, because Annie is funny!

And you'll feel like you're not alone in the world, and that you can do for others what Annie has done for you--take someone's hand and say, "Let's All Be Brave." Thanks, Annie, for taking my hand. I'll meet you for coffee anytime you're in town.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because Christa Black, a songwriter/author/speaker that I adore, suggested it. As "brave" has been a buzzword for me this year, I bought it without knowing hardly anything about it.

Started reading it immediately and before I knew it I was halfway through it because I CANNOT put it down. It will have you in tears, laughing, dreaming, and discovering the bravery that's already in you. I've found it to be so encouraging in my own journey of bravery. Annie will quickly feel like a friend you've known for years and her writing makes you feel like you're sitting across from her at Frothy Monkey.

In short, get this book. Read it. Savor it. And then go say yes and be brave!

Format: Paperback
I was drawn to Annie F. Downs’ Let’s All Be Brave for several reasons–one being that the author, like myself, is single (although several years younger than me), and she lives in Nashville, where I went to school and where I hope to move back to someday. But the main reason I wanted to read this book was because I often find myself struggling to, as the subtitle says, live life with everything I have. It’s hard for me to step out of my comfort zone and put myself at risk for failure or embarrassment or even discomfort. I figured that reading a book written by someone who has been similarly challenged to step out of her own comfort zone would be good motivation for me to, well, be braver in my life.

Unfortunately, I just found the book to be so-so. It was essentially a series of essays from different moments in Downs’ life where she felt the need to be brave, from her post-college move from her native Georgia to Nashville, to living overseas in Scotland and moving back to Nashville. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy reading other people’s life stories and the lessons they’ve learned from them, but it felt like each chapter ended with the same refrain to be brave. After a while I wanted to tell her, “Okay, I get it–I’m supposed to be brave and trust God and let go and be brave some more.”

I did enjoy her stories, and particularly liked the chapter in which she addressed her struggle to trust God’s timing and ways when it comes to singleness and marriage. That’s an area in which I could really identify with her. Overall, the book was entertaining but not quite as deep as I’d hoped it would be.
