Brave Enough

25968016Find the courage to be who you are―not who you wish you were.
Is fear holding you back from becoming your best self? Does it add stress to your day and keep you up at night? What could be different if you let go and started living brave today?

Bravery doesn’t have to mean cliff diving out of your comfort zone. Life is about being brave enough―for yourself, for God, for your tasks, and for your calling―right where He’s placed you. A brave-enough life is one lived fully and confidently, with your shoulders relaxed and free from the weight of responsibility and the burden of trying too hard.

Nicole Unice, author of She’s Got Issues, wants that life to become a reality for you. She challenges you to get real about where you are right now―the places where you feel too scared to change, too tired to endure, or too worried to let go. Through personal stories and practical application, Nicole will lead you on a journey to harness all of your misspent doubts, concerns, and fears―and discover what God is saying about who you can be.

5 Star

 

The title alone of this book both intrigued me and terrified me. 

Right away I was quite interested in what the author would have to say in this book. I was terrified of the ways in which I would be challenged by it. All in all, I found a book that was challenging in all of the right ways, thought provoking, and extremely practical.

There was so much of this book that I found relevant. Nicole Unice discusses the things that can hold us back from living out our faith the way God intended and also challenges us to get rid of the things that hinder that. Some of the topics in the book are things such as dealing with anger issues to making sure that we are preparing ourselves to living out our faith (studying the Bible, praying, worshiping God).

Each chapter of the book, Unice encourages the reader to reflect on some guided questions that deal with the topics covered. There is also a suggested prayer. The book is very grounded in the Bible with Unice referencing Scripture and showing how to apply the concepts to everyday life.

I think this book is terrific for personal use but would also be fantastic for a women’s small group type setting.
