The deeply personal stories Hallie Lord shares are humorous, fun, and delightful—yet packed with jaw-dropping insights. It is not an exaggeration to say that this book will change your life. —Jennifer Fulwiler, SiriusXM radio host and bestselling author of Something Other than God
Jesus said "Be Not Afraid.” Saint John Paul II said "Be Not Afraid." But I'm afraid to say...I still have lots of fears in life. After reading this book, Hallie Lord will be the third voice in my head reminding me to "Be Not Afraid" and to trust in God. Thanks Jesus, JPII, and Hallie! —Lino Rulli, Host, "The Catholic Guy" on SiriusXM Satellite Radio
Hallie Lord goes toe-to-toe with fear and provides a witty and fearless response in the face of such challenges today. On the Other Side of Fear: How I Found Peace is a remarkably truthful book that not only encourages us but also illuminates the sources behind many fears today in order to root them out and live fearlessly in and with Christ. —Leah Darrow, author of Decent Exposure
"Don't be afraid. Just have faith" (Luke 8:50). When we hear these words of Jesus, we may well reply, "Yes, Lord--but how?" In this wise and witty book, Hallie Lord offers penetrating, practical insights from years of struggle with fear in its various forms. In the end, her personal victories over anxiety powerfully illustrate the biblical truth that "there is no fear in love" (1 John 4:18). —Paul Thigpen, author of Manual for Spiritual Warfare
The Bible is filled with encouragement to not be afraid. It's the first command of every angel and the first word spoken by Jesus on Easter. Yet how hard it is! In this wonderfully uplifting book, Hallie Lord shows us how to tap into the strong confidence of faith to conquer our daily concerns. She doesn't ignore fear, which can never be banished, but confronts it and reveals how we can loosen its grip. Vulnerable, poignant, and inspiring, this is the book you need if you've ever been worried or unsure about life. —Brandon Vogt, author of RETURN: How to Draw Your Child Back to the Church
"In a culture awash (and adrift) in marginally helpful self-help books, Hallie Lord truly has launched into the deep with this worthy book. It brims with practical advice and gracious personal encouragement for all who (like all of us) struggle at times with fear and discouragement." — Patrick Madrid, radio host
I think all women struggle with fear on some level. We lose that carefree part of our spirit as we realize how precious and fragile life can be. With her relatable, humorous, and warm writing style, Hallie Lord manages to encourage, challenge and, most importantly, make you feel normal. Pick this book up today and get ready for a fun ride. You will find yourself nodding your head, laughing out loud and breathing a big sigh of relief that it's all going to be okay. – Melanie Shankle, NY Times Bestselling author of Nobody's Cuter Than You
Hallie Lord is a gifted and graceful writer whose wisdom is hard-won – and all the more compelling as a result. For women struggling to replace fear with faith, this intimate, funny and poignant account of Hallie’s own struggle offers a roadmap toward peace, from an author who feels like a friend. – Colleen Carroll Campbell, journalist, former presidential speechwriter and author of My Sisters the Saints: A Spiritual Memoir and The New Faithful: Why Young Adults Are Embracing Christian Orthodoxy
From the Inside Flap
What happened to that girl?
What happened to the girl who was not afraid to climb to the top of the waterfall and jump. Who backpacked across Europe? Who took on any "feat of bravery" without batting an eyelash? You wouldn't recognize her she's become that woman paralyzed by fear, scared to death to trust God, and trying to manage her family's hectic life, financial crises (yes, plural), and family issues on her own steam.
Asking always, "Does God truly love me?"
Relatable, touching, and yet hopeful On the Other Side of Fear is the beautiful story of how one young woman learned to live in God's will, without fear.

She approaches her life from a Catholic perspective, but I beleive no matter your faith, you will gain so much from reading her beautifully composed words of peace, love, and faith in every circumstance.
Thank you for this book Hallie Lord!
That being said, this is a great book. Trusting in God is one of those things that sounds easy, but is, actually, quite hard, as Hallie writes so vividly about. Her struggle to trust in God even when there's no money in the checking account, when they need to find a place for their family of 9 to live, when she's terrified that her art isn't good enough....basically, everything (minus the family) that I know well. Hallie's soulful writing tells us how she began to let go and REALLY trust in God, and how it's a work in progress. It was so helpful to me to hear that Hallie's STILL working on this.
I underlined a lot of passages, and I think you will too.
Hallie shares different experiences throughout her life that forced her confront her fears and make some very tough decisions. She also shares the struggles and moments of love that have helped to shape her.
- In one chapter, she describes some letters her husband, Dan, has given to her over the years. They are beautiful.
- She reiterates that the problems we face mainly occur when we don't question our fears and/or not follow those fears to their logical conclusions.
- I love that she wrote to Mother Angelica when she was struggling with infertility!
- We learn of how she let go of perfection and let God.
- Spiritual growth takes time, like training for a marathon or creating a fine piece of art.
- Hallie brings in moments that show how we can see God's presence, even if we don't feel it. There is a difference, and Hallie explains the nuances well.
- We have to work at finding gratitude for what you have at any given moment, but it's something that is possible.
- I didn't realize that Hallie's most recent child was posterior and she gave birth completely solo. Hallie is a trooper!
