Welcome! This Christian blog helps readers have courageous faith. Discover how to face fear, live with purpose, and grow in holiness.

“Be Brave.” “Do it afraid.” If you’re like me, these phrases fail to come to your aid when fear paralyzes you. We have one big unanswered question—how? How do we do it afraid?

Where do we find the courage we so desperately need to take the next step of faith?

After five years of research and facing fear in all areas of my life, I’m convinced the answer lies in learning what it means to fear God. Fearing God gives us courageous faith.

My posts offer tangible and practical help for your faith, marriage, parenting, and everyday struggles while weaving in the truth about how fearing God will give us freedom, peace, and courage to let go of unhealthy fear.

Do you want wisdom to know how to live with courage?

Proverbs says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.  I write to help women face their fears, live in their purpose, and grow in holiness. Come discover how to fear less by fearing God.
