Overview


“A true writer.” –Beth Moore

From a challenge of faith to a means of transformation

Did God really say you couldn’t eat from any tree in the garden? This seed of doubt planted so long ago still bears the fruit of fear on some level every day—the idea that our actions could ruin something beautiful and God might not have control over things.

In What Women Fear acclaimed writer and speaker Angie Smith admits, “Fear is a major part of my testimony” as she talks openly about significant struggles she has experienced. Giving a voice to the problem, she says, “I truly believe every single one of us struggles with some type of fear, whether it’s fear of flying or fear of being ‘found out.’ Maybe you don’t worry about dying, but you get sick thinking about the fact that you might fail.”

Instead of suggesting that those who love the Lord would never fear, Angie blends her own experiences with those of men and women throughout Scripture to help us start dealing more effectively with these true, human emotions.

Whether it’s a constant What if? type of worry, being afraid of abandonment or betrayal, fear of trusting God’s plan, or many others encountered in the rhythm of our daily lives, Angie walks you through stories of others who have simultaneously loved God and struggled with faith. Journey with her as she explores the difficult and life-giving questions God asked of those who walked a similar road. Discover how to redeem this struggle as only God can—that He will be glorified, and you will be transformed.

Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith (lead singer of Dove Award winning group Selah), author of I Will Carry You, and a national women’s conference speaker. She holds a Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and lives with her husband and daughters in Nashville, Tennessee.

The fears that Angie addresses in this book can be found in the hearts of women in all locations, circumstances, and age groups. As a pastor's wife, I look forward to using this book to supplement some of my counseling! God has used Angie once again to share her story in a way that will be greatly used for His glory!

I am nearly done with this book; I had pre-ordered it as an avid reader of Angie's blog. She brings the wit and honesty found on her blog to this book but the part that captivated me the most is her incredible talent for bringing bible stories to life. She sucked me right into every chapter with a visually stunning description of a biblical character, inspiring me to want to pick up the bible and read the "real" story. She hit different categories of fears right on the head, taking the need to hide out of all kinds of fears and making them human and approachable. I appreciate her wit and I think it is an important part of her style...making her approachable and like a girlfriend you've known a long time.

I'm blessed to say I've had the privilege of following Angie's writing for several years now. Through her words I have come to know and follow the Lord in a MUCH deeper way that I hadn't experienced before. My heart has been greatly impacted, yet again, within only the first chapter of What Women Fear. Thank you Angie, for trusting God in being so raw with your writing. He's truly changing lives through you. Anxieties and fears I experienced both as a child and now have been calmed and great hope for my future with the Lord pours out.

I've followed Angie's blog for a few years now and love her humble approach to life. I read this book on a 3 hour flight to/from a business trip. Angie has an amazing way with words and delivered this message in a way none other could. Thanks, Angie.for using your gifts to bring Him glory.

I tend to think the worst of situations first and think through them second. This book helped me so much, because it taught me to think first and not worry or fear first. The book gave great tools to help me do this as well. Great book to read and it is very practical.

Angie Smith's writing is straightforward and honest. She openly shares her own life's experiences and captures your heart. Something every woman can relate to and apply in her own life.
