From the Back Cover
"Kelly shows us how we can overcome our greatest fears by developing the tenacious courage of a fear fighter who knows how to throw a strong faith punch!"--Renee Swope, author of A Confident Heart
We all live with fear. It hangs around, whispering in our ears, reminding us of all we can't do or will never be. But that's not the end of the story. We also have a God who draws close to say, Fear not. I am with you. This Spirit transforms us into fear fighters--women breaking free of trepidation to find bold dedication to God's peace-, purpose-, and joy-filled callings.
With remarkable compassion born from personal experience, Kelly Balarie shows women how to
· Cultivate unstoppable faith by harnessing God's Word and promptings
· Usher in lasting peace through prayers that reduce panic, blood pressure, and stress
· Discover clear and immediate action plans to exchange worry for God's greatest gifts
· Implement daily bravery decrees to stand armed throughout the day
· Participate in a twelve-week study guide to foster new courageous habits
Kelly pulls back the curtain of fear so you can find the beautiful woman God created you to be.
"Kelly does a beautiful job weaving her own personal story with the transforming truth of God's Word, inviting women to come out of hiding and step into the fullness of their identity as daughters of the King."--Kyle Zimmerman, lead pastor, Mariners Church Irvine

In Kelly Balarie’s book Fear Fighting, we see this firsthand. Very peppy and conversational, Fear Fighting is basically a highly motivational devotional. You’ll find Kelly very real and relatable as a woman who both loves God and struggles with fear.
But what makes this book different is Kelly doesn’t run from fear or call it dumb or doubtful. She doesn’t ask us to scare ourselves out of feeling it.
According to Kelly, living fearlessly isn’t a matter of learning to lock our knocking knees or bite our quivering lips. There is no 5-step plan for us to fear failing at. We don’t have to undertake an intimidating process of becoming someone we’re not. Fear isn’t defeated when we muster up the guts to stare it down…but it loses its power when we fix our eyes on Him.
“We let go of all we are not and see all that God is,” Kelly says. Her proposal is simple: “The Spirit says start. Start fearing God rather than fearing everyone is going to take you down.”*
Kelly knows fear, and she knows we can’t beat it by pretending we can. Instead, she reminds us who can and who has.
Bravery is fearing God. I love how Kelly brings this truth out.
In the book, you’ll find this message proclaimed loud and clear right alongside stories to illustrate the point and dig deeper. Kelly offers several practical memory devices and strategies to help us fear-fighting readers reorient ourselves to God’s hugeness. At the end of each chapter Kelly also provides “something to chew” to help process her points about fear and faith. Definitely a helpful, encouraging read with the power to be used by God to change lives and embolden hearts.
*Pg49, Fear Fighting by Kelly Balarie
Thank you so much. I look forward to reading more from this exciting, uplifting author.
But the book helps address that part of shame in ourselves and let's us know God loves me no matter what.
Would recommend it to everyone whether you are fighting a battle or know of someone who is...
Kelly Balarie’s book is a God send.
The book is outlined very easily, entitled with all the different harbingers of fear, like control, worry, the past, rejection, and my favorite, “Waiting While Trembling.” Balarie’s book offers personal narrative, a rich offering of biblical knowledge and handy verses to study and memorize. She gives us “Something to Chew On” at the end of each chapter, to journal about and add to the study.
I found this quote to be one of my favorites: “I want to love me a little more. I want to run back to me, that seven—year-old girl, grab hold of her shoulders, look into her sullen and scared eyes, and tell her, ‘Sweet one, please know: you are seen, so seen. Just believe, grab hold, and fly where He flies. By His might, you’re bound to end up okay.’”
Kelly Balarie helps us to fly. I am profoundly grateful for her words. As a fellow author, I am also grateful for her fluid writing and her story-telling. This book is a gem. - Dana Bowman, Bottled: A Mom's Guide to Early Recovery
A simple but powerful quote from the book: "God basically says, 'Start holding My hand of courage in the face of your fears.' "
