About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

Fight Your Fears: Trusting God's Character and Promises When You Are Afraid by Kristen Wetherell

Fight Your Fears: Trusting God's Character and Promises When You Are AfraidABOUT THE BOOK

What are you afraid of?

You could probably fill this page with a list of your fears. Fears about the future; fears about your health, job, and family; fears about inadequacy and failure (and maybe success); fears about how much fear itself seems to affect your decisions, plans, and growth in this life.

You might even fear what God thinks about your fears. After all, in his Word God commands us not to be afraid hundreds of times. But how is this possible? We're troubled by evil, we're slammed with bad news, and we can't know what tomorrow will bring. How can we learn to trust God and not be afraid?

Kristen Wetherell is in the fight with you. She is a fearful fellow traveler on the road of the Christian life, making strides alongside you in this battle. In Fight Your Fears she carefully searches 10 of God's great and precious promises, equipping you with the practical tools to overcome the fears and anxious thoughts that are robbing you of your joy. Each chapter ends with Scripture exercises, a memory verse, questions to ponder, and a prayer.

Discover truths that will bring peace to your soul as you learn to fear God and nothing else.


"When I am afraid, I put my trust in you." Psalm 56:3

In this new book author Kristen Wetherell tackles the subject of fear and she shows how we can tackle our own fears by using the 4Ps: Ponder--Preserve--Prepare--Pray. There are ten chapters that cover some of our fears, such as feeling unworthy, being judged, being alone, and the fear of dying; Wetherell shares Bible scripture, the true accounts of people from the Bible, and personal illustrations to help us to work through them. She also encourages us to make the fear of the Lord greater than our other fears. In other words. we need to follow Him and serve Him out of love and give Him the honor and reverence that He deserves! When we do this, His perfect love will take care of our fears.

Fight Your Fears is a wonderful resource filled with suggestions based on Scripture and, during this worldwide pandemic, the timing of its release couldn't have come at a better time. This is a valuable resource that will help you fight your fears in a biblical manner. As an added bonus, there are ten attractive Scripture Memory Cards that you can cut out and carry with you.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House. There was no obligation to post a favorable review. These are my own thoughts.
