If you're an Eeyore type, preferring to lay down and wallow, you probably won't like this book. This is a book that is seeped in Gospel-centered inspiration and real-living practicalities. It encourages you to face those fears with the armor of God (particularly that shield!)
Yes, we all have worries and anxiety that can paralyze and twist our guts into sailor knots. The difference between finding joy and peace and, well, NOT, is what we DO with those knots. I love how Alli gets down to our level (honestly, many Christian authors prefer to stay clean of the whole "sin makes life suck" thing) and provides the gentle Scriptural prodding we need to call out to Christ, cling to his word, and start. walking. forward. out of the Anxiety Forest.
I mean, honestly, who can't relate to chapters like these?
What If They Don’t Like Me? Fear of Rejection
What If the Kids Aren’t Okay? Fear for Our Children
What If I Can’t Do This? Fear of Failure
What If I Get Hurt Again? Fear of Betrayal
What if Everyone Has Fun Without Me? Fear of Missing Out
What If Things Fall Apart? Fear of the Future
What If I Never Measure Up? Fear of Not Being Enough
What If I Can’t Trust God? Fear That We Are on Our Own
Ah, yes please! I have felt each of those Worry Warts. If you've ever struggled with fear and anxiety, I can't recommend this book enough. It puts meat on the bones of the pithy phrase "Let Go and Let God". As if life is as simple as a bumper sticker, anyway! As my kids are growing bigger and bigger, and I find my ability to control every aspect of their life (correction, THINK I control every aspect...) fly out the window like a super motivated sparrow, this book (particularly the chapter on Fear for my Children), reminded me of the numerous times in the Bible God has tenderly cared for motherly fears (case in point, Jochebed and Moses).
Alli points you to Scripture in every chapter, which makes my heart happy because I know these are GOD'S PROMISES that I can rely on. Great for men, women, students... pretty much every Christian, honestly, at any age. I could also see this being a great book to use in a group discussion, since there are questions to consider (or journal over) at the end of every chapter and a really great Battle Plan workbook at the end of the book to use. Very highly recommend!
Now we get a peak into one woman’s journey into fighting fear, wrestling worry and overcoming anxiety. And this is no fluff journal; it has the raw details of before, during and after. All doesn’t pull any punches. Instead, she floods us with truth, hope and encouragement.
My favorite part of Fierce Faith is the Battle Plan that we get to build. It is individualized to me, just like yours will be individualized to you. There is no better way to succeed in goals than to have a target, tools and knowledge.
As Alli revealed her personal battle with fear, worry and anxiety, I found myself answering back with my own stories. Happily, I was not left in the pit of what fear had made because at the end of each chapter there were Action Steps. They gave me an opportunity to write out what had happened and then bring truth into the scenario to see how I can build my faith.
This is a wonderful workbook, life coach and study guide. I will definitely be using it with friends to build fierce faith together.
