From the Back Cover
"The best time to be strengthened against the Enemy's tactics of doubt, disappointment, and devastation is before he makes his first move toward us. We all desperately need the biblical guidance and preparation found in Battle Ready!"--Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
Too often we fail to prepare for our battles. So when challenges, troubles, or opportunities arise, we rapidly become burdened with limiting thoughts of self-doubt, fear, impossibility, and lack. But it doesn't have to be this way. We can train our minds to conquer uncertainty, beat insecurity, and step past the tragedies of yesterday.
Battle Ready is a hands-on scriptural plan that teaches you twelve easy-to-implement, confidence-building mind-sets designed to transform your thoughts and, therefore, your life. You'll gain practical wisdom, like how to
· make new habits stick in just five steps
· disarm the seven most common attacks that plague women
· exchange self-limiting thoughts for purpose-driven, love-releasing thoughts
· implement thirty-second mind-lifters that deliver peace
· create boundaries so you live life full of what matters
You can live victoriously.
"The most difficult fights we will face in this life will be within our own hearts and minds. Battle Ready will help encourage, empower, and equip you to live in true victory."--Holley Gerth, bestselling author of Fiercehearted
"Battle Ready will enable you to avoid defeat and discouragement and walk confidently in faith instead. Highly recommended."--Karen Ehman, national speaker and New York Times bestselling author of Keep It Shut and Listen, Love, Repeat

Kelly Balarie’s writing reminds us that feelings are not reality & God’s Word provides the only stability we need in a world that’s been turned topsy-turvy. As we learn how to focus in on God’s truth, we experience the kind of victory only He can provide.
If you’ve ever struggled with self-doubt, comparison, defeat, or loneliness—this book is for you! Kally’s words teach us how to exchange limitations for expectation. She encourages and equips us to take small steps on a daily basis that will help us become bigger, better, bolder fighters. She offers hope for every woman, every battle, and every circumstance—because of who Jesus Christ is and what Jesus Christ has done for us. Simply stated, Kelly shows us a better way to battle!
Here are a few of my favorite take-aways from the book:
• God wants open hearts, not perfect hearts.
• Small victories in everyday battles prepare us for the ultimate victory in life’s biggest battle.
• Repentance leads to restoration.
• What we nurture in our hearts fills our minds and flows into our lives.
• Rest in God’s provision, rejoice in God’s direction, and rejuvenate your weary soul.
If you only read one section of this book—read warrior mindset 12—it’s not about us after all! It’s about Jesus and all He has done for us. Once we can grasp this beautiful truth, we are free to battle courageously, and live victoriously.
My only caution to readers is this: don’t try to read and apply the whole book to your life in a week. Your brain might just explode! Just pick one powerful truth to focus on at a time. Allow that truth to infuse your soul and invest time and energy into applying it to your everyday life. Once you feel confident you’ve “got it down,” return to Kelly’s words and find another truth to focus on.
**I received an advanced copy from the publisher for review purposes.
I highly recommend this book, which is chock-full of 12 powerful warrior mind-sets, overflowing with helpful strategies like these:
Jesus used parables to help people imagine what His point was. Bible-centered imagination paints a picture of something new. It shows you the potential of what could be. Don’t fear it; use it for godly growth. Use your “heart brain.” Imagine how you will feel as a result of kicking a heart-hurting habit to the curb. Use the blessings of God’s Fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22–23) as a carrot incentive to act differently. And please note: even more than what you’ve imagined, God can do. Imagine God smiling down on you as you trust Him with the scary things of your day. See yourself leaning on Him when you feel you can’t stand. Praise His name and feel Him smiling back at you through your suffering. Imagine who God has created you to be and what He has created you to do. Imagine how you feel as you let go of all that has held you back. When you set up God to rule over your life: no doubt, your heart can’t help but rule over your head.
Add the word “but” to your negative outlooks. Example: I am tired today, but God will renew my strength. Repeat in your mind, God’s love will go forth from me, as I relate to [insert the person you’re standing before]. Note: this doesn’t mean you soak in all their problems, issues, and fears; it means you love from the place of the already-saturated fullness, the complete love of Jesus within you.
Lord Jesus, bless Kelly and the launch of #BattleReadyBook indeed. Do something so big that it will be obvious it is from You. Increase her influence and opportunities to make a difference for You. Give her a continual awareness of Your Presence and Direction as she makes decisions. Protect her physically, spiritually, mentally, and relationally, and keep her from falling into satan’s traps. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
