Have you ever found yourself in over your head, wondering how you would possibly get through with your faith and sanity intact?
It can happen any time. Life seems good and then—BOOM!—out of nowhere comes a storm that threatens to drown your hopes. Your storm might be a job loss, loneliness, a crumbling relationship, financial ruin, a serious illness, or the death of a loved one. Whatever it is, as the winds howl and the waves rage, you have a choice: will you cower in fear or will you rise to the challenge?
Cancer survivor Holly Wagner has endured her share of storms. In Find Your Brave she examines the dramatic shipwreck faced by the apostle Paul in Acts 27. There she uncovers profound truths that will guide you safely through life’s most difficult moments.
Through solid biblical teaching and relatable personal stories, Holly offers an uplifting, friendly voice in the midst of the gale-force winds and overpowering critical voices. She shows you how to anchor your trust in the God who remains faithful in every storm and in whose strength you can Find Your Brave.
“So take courage! For I believe God. It will be just as He said.”
–Acts 27:25 (NLT)
The apostle Paul, held as a prisoner on a ship bound for Rome, encounters a fierce tempest on the Adriatic Sea. Chaos and calamity surround him as the crew frantically attempts to lighten the ship, undergird the vessel, and keep her afloat. Paul stands in their midst and makes a simple, yet course-altering statement: “Be of good cheer!”
In the middle of your storms,
are you able to declare the same?
In Find Your Brave GodChicks founder Holly Wagner combines insight found in Acts 27 with lessons learned from her very personal battles with cancer, betrayal, and turmoil to create the essential storm survival guide. Her words will encourage and empower you with practical tools to navigate life’s greatest storms, steady your heart against fear, and inspire you to rescue others as you make your way safely ashore.
Holly Wagner believes it is no accident that you and I are alive and on the earth at this time in history…what an awesome privilege it is. Granted, terror is alive and real on the planet…but so are we and the purposes for which we have been placed here.
The King of heaven is waiting for women to take their places on the earth …we have a job to do. Proverbs 31:8-9 says it like this…we are to open our mouths for those who can't speak for themselves…open our mouths for those who are left defenseless…we are to judge righteously and administer justice. How can we do this if we are not confidently living our life as God's girl on the earth?
In God Chicks, Holly encourages women to embrace their God-given roles, such as the Warrior Chick, the Friend Chick, and the Just b.u. Chick. "We are invaluable," says Holly, "and more women need to see themselves this way. We do not have to strive or force our way…we just have to confidently walk as we were created…daughters of a King."
In this inspiring call to arms against victimhood and complacency, Holly Wagner challenges women to enlist as Warrior Chicks. She shows women that they are beautiful just the way they are, they are destined to be overcomers in this life, and that the battle is already won for us. She shares the secrets of being equipped to fight the good fight and do more than just survive. As Holly knows from her experience as a warrior chick battling breast cancer, we aren't living in peacetime. We can choose to be a casualty or a warrior. So what's it going to be?

about my Dad. I don’t remember much about the day other than what they wanted. I don’t know if my four children were there or if they were with my husband at the time, who was at our construction site. We lived in a very small rental while building a much larger home on 32 acres of land we had purchased a couple years earlier.
The Secret Service knocked on the side door under the carport. I peeked out, and at first thought they might be missionaries from my church. As soon as I opened the door all the way, I noticed they were much older than 19 to 21-year-old missionaries. Then I realized who they were. Not these two men exactly, but you just know by the third time! They wore dark suits and sunglasses. They were clean- cut, middle-aged men with badges on their belts. They introduced themselves to me, but as they told me what they wanted I couldn’t hear them. My mind was full of noise and all I could hear was my heart thumping. I reminded myself of my dad’s promise that he wouldn’t do anything EVER to go back to prison. He was living RIGHT! And I believed him!They repeated what they said even louder, “Do you know Larry Brown?” one of the agents asked.
“Yes, he’s my father.” I said hesitantly.
“Have your parents been here to visit you recently?” the other agent asked.
“Yes, they were here for a few days. They left yesterday.” I said even more hesitant.
“There has been some counterfeit money going around the area and it’s very good quality! Do you mind if we take a look around?” they asked.
“Sure," I said, trusting what my Dad told me would be true. “I’m sure you won’t find anything, so have at it.” I said firmly.
I let them in the side door which led to the kitchen and eating area. I led them to the hallway. On the left was the living room, the right was the bathroom, and three very small bedrooms.
As they stood looking at the entire house from that spot one of the Marshalls asked, “Where’d they sleep?”
“On the sofa, it pulls out into a bed.” The sofa sleeper was a sectional that could hardly fit in the small living room. The front door was almost blocked by it.
They removed all the cushions, pulled out the sofa sleeper, removed the mattress, and then put it back the way they found it. Then they looked in each of the bedrooms. What only took a few moments seemed like hours. My heart thumping louder and louder each time they searched through something else. If they didn’t stop digging around when they did I think my heart would have stopped. They must have stopped the search because they didn’t have a search warrant. I was relieved they didn’t find anything. Not that I doubted my dad, but you just never know what they are really looking for.
A few days went by and they arrested my dad. What on earth could the charges be? Did my dad lie to me? Was he passing counterfeit or using his alias names? What was it?
I couldn’t visit Dad the entire time he was in jail because of my first trimester complications, afraid to get to far away from my doctor. We were also rushing to get the new house built before the baby was born. Although time went by pretty fast for me, I’m sure it seemed like an eternity for my dad. You see, my dad and I had always been close. I would do anything for him and he’d do the same for me, anything except write a letter. I was so busy that I don’t think I even wrote him one letter.
