Recognize, confront, and conquer the fears holding you back from living boldly and freely with renowned Bible teacher and New York Times bestselling author, Joyce Meyer. Fear is the devil's favorite tool in the toolbox of schemes he uses to destroy God's good plan for you. He uses it to hold you back and prevent progress in your relationships, career, and more. In Do It Afraid, Joyce Meyer explains that fear is everywhere and affects everyone. It rules many people, but it doesn't have to rule you any longer. She will teach you how to: Understand fear and recognize how it works in your life. Confront those fears that are holding you back. Change your mindset for lasting freedom from some of the most common fears people face. Remember, courage isn't the absence of fear; it is learning how to move forward in the presence of fear. Courageous people do what they believe in their hearts they should do, no matter how they feel or what doubts fill their minds. When you take ownership of your problems and open your heart to God, He will help bring light into darkness so that you can be free.

What drew you to read this book:
Just after a service during which I had handed God a whole bunch of my fears, including the fear for my matriculant daughter’s future, I was asked if I would do a book review. This book was one of the five to choose from and I figured this may be an answer to my prayer.
What impact did this book have:
More than 7 years ago, our pastor introduced me to FEAR as False Evidence Appearing Real. A very easy way to remind me that often my fears don’t even materialise, but a very hard concept to put into practice. This book had some very practical advice on how to overcome several of my fears, as well as, helped me to identify behaviours that were as a result of other fears.
In a paragraph, what is the main point:
In the Introduction, Joyce writes “Courage is not the absence of fear; it is moving forward in the presence of fear”. This is an awesome summary of the purpose of the book. This book enables one to identify, confront and overcome various fears and includes examples of the most common fears that people face.
Who would benefit from reading this book:
Anyone who is looking for practical advice on how to identify and face fears in their life – current and future.
