From the Back Cover

“A true writer.” –Beth Moore

From a challenge of faith to a means of transformation

Did God really say you couldn’t eat from any tree in the garden? This seed of doubt planted so long ago still bears the fruit of fear on some level every day—the idea that our actions could ruin something beautiful and God might not have control over things.

In What Women Fear acclaimed writer and speaker Angie Smith admits, “Fear is a major part of my testimony” as she talks openly about significant struggles she has experienced. Giving a voice to the problem, she says, “I truly believe every single one of us struggles with some type of fear, whether it’s fear of flying or fear of being ‘found out.’ Maybe you don’t worry about dying, but you get sick thinking about the fact that you might fail.”

Instead of suggesting that those who love the Lord would never fear, Angie blends her own experiences with those of men and women throughout Scripture to help us start dealing more effectively with these true, human emotions.

Whether it’s a constant What if? type of worry, being afraid of abandonment or betrayal, fear of trusting God’s plan, or many others encountered in the rhythm of our daily lives, Angie walks you through stories of others who have simultaneously loved God and struggled with faith. Journey with her as she explores the difficult and life-giving questions God asked of those who walked a similar road. Discover how to redeem this struggle as only God can—that He will be glorified, and you will be transformed.

Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith (lead singer of Dove Award winning group Selah), author of I Will Carry You, and a national women’s conference speaker. She holds a Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and lives with her husband and daughters in Nashville, Tennessee.

Angie's writing makes her very relatable, and she has a beautiful way of seamlessly blending real stories from her life with scripture from the Bible.

I love how this book points us to the Lord as the one who can help us to walk through any fear that is before us.

I originally ordered this book on Amazon. After arriving home Tuesday, and realizing that the book wouldn't be available until September 6th, I rushed to my nearest Lifeway to pick up a copy. I ended up reading the whole thing Tuesday night. Yes, it's that good.

I am a 22 year old girl that struggles with perfection, rejection, and anxiety daily. It's easy to fall into Satan's lie of, "We're not good enough." I constantly wonder about the "what if's in life." However, Angie Smith reassures us and provides scripture to help break our way of thinking (2 Corinthians 2:5 along with many others). I also struggle daily with my relationship with the Lord because I do believe that I'm not worthy enough. I will struggle no more. After reading this book, I think I have truly found freedom in Christ. He loves me despite my imperfections, my flaw, and my mistakes.

Angie quotes, "He can be glorified in spite of our mistakes. He can redeem those bitter roots to grow something spectacular, but first you must recognize what needs to be done for that to happen. Being a Christian doesn't mean we have a free pass because we can "ask forgiveness later," but rather that we live the life that is poured out in each moment for the One Who revels in making all things new."

Angie is so transparent, and when you read the book, you feel like you're just having a deep conversation with someone at Starbucks, not being preached at or judged at all.

If you face any kind of fear (and we all do), I HIGHLY recommend reading What Women Fear. It might change your life too!

Format: Paperback
If anyone knows the depths to which fear can carry us, it would be author Angie Smith. ImageBefore picking up her new book What Women Fear, I knew very little about her. I had heard her discussion thoughts on another book I went through with a group recently. And, I knew she and her husband had dealt with the reality of being told during her fourth pregnancy that their baby would not survive. But in What Women Fear, I met a woman who began battling deep and debilitating fears as a young child. Yet even in the battle, she has learned the incredible joy of growing in Christ and clinging to Him from the depths.

Each chapter of What Women Fear begins with the retelling of a story from Scripture. Smith is a gifted storyteller, taking the familiar passages and bringing them close to home. The reader can almost find herself in the middle of each story, feeling what the heroes of old felt.

Smith then takes a break in the Biblical story and moves into more contemporary examples of fear. Typically they are portions of her own story, bravely told in a reminder to us that we are not alone in our fears. The chapter is concluded with a return to the original Scriptural example, bringing conclusion with God's wisdom and commands related to our fears.

Some of the chapters I identified with more closely than others. One chapter in particular left me wanting to put down the book and not ever pick it up again as I discovered how close to home it was hitting! But, I was also riveted. I was ready to move through my conviction and find success even through my fears.

The most beautiful aspect of What Women Fear is that Angie Smith never once pretends to have all of the answers.

I have been gripped with fear since I was a child. It has plagued me for 2 decades and as I read the chapters of this beautifully written book my soul stirred to the point of tears and knowing that I would not be the same. Next to the Bible, I have never felt so transformed with any other book. Angie is so transparent and real in the book and the Lord has truly used that to bring me to a point of freedom from fear. I love how she highlights different characters in the Bible in a way that draws you in and go to the Bible to finish reading about the character. One thing that struck me is how she mentions the fear that people in the Bible had, like David, but it was the way that we respond to that fear! Powerful Powerful Book!

I received this book as a Christmas gift. I had seen Angie speak at a Women of Faith conference as well as the Lifeway, ".Mom" Conference. Something about her just made me feel like she was a girlfriend who I could grab Starbucks with. Her stories that she shared made me laugh and made me cry. I had read parts of her previous book, "I will carry you" at a friends house before, and when I saw that she was releasing a new book about fear, I thought, "I have to get that." Christmas was one week ago and I am nearly done with the book. This is saying a lot considering how busy my week has been! I have not wanted to put it down. I have been excited about starting my morning with my book while curling up on the couch as my son watches "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" at 6:30 AM. I can't remember the last time I was excited about getting up at 6:30 AM! Over the past couple of years I came to the realization that some of my fears that I thought "everyone must struggle with" are practically OCD. Now how to release those fears to God? That I suppose will take some time and definitely prayer. This book has been an encouragement to me. Anyone who struggles with anxiety should read this. It is changing my life, one chapter at a time. Blessings!
