Overview


In What Women Fear, acclaimed writer and speaker Angie Smith admits, "fear is a major part of my testimony" and talks openly about her treatment for anxiety as a child. 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." 

Rather than suggesting that those who truly love the Lord would never fear, Angie blends her own experiences with those of men and women from throughout Scripture to help us start dealing more effectively with these true, human emotions. Whether it’s a constant "What if?," a nagging fear of abandonment or betrayal, fear of your own or someone else’s death, fear of trusting God's plan, or even the fear that God's existence is a lie, Angie will walk you through stories of others who have simultaneously loved God and struggled with fear. Join Angie and discover how to let Jesus redeem this struggle as only He can, that He will be glorified, and you will be transformed!

Endorsements


Angie Smith has the rare gift to write a non-fiction page-turner as good as any fiction book I've read.  As her words tumbled out in raw honesty, fresh hope spread before me.  Her teachings on fear are comforting, practical, and gut honest.  I can't wait for you to read this life-changing book.  What Women Fear is one of my favorites this year.  Honestly, I think it will stay next to my bed for a very long time.



Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times best-selling author of Made to Crave

You don't have to be around Angie Smith very long to fall in love with her. She is funny and transparent with a passionate love for Christ. In What Women Fear Angie holds up a mirror so that we can see ourselves from every angle, the thoughts we display on the front shelves of our lives and those we hide. The greatest gift tucked into this book is the overwhelming picture of the mercy of our God who understands our fears and invites us to stand beside Him in the rain and let His love wash us clean.

Sheila Walsh, author of The Shelter of God's Promises

Whatever high wire you’re walking right now, there really is nobody you want at the other end of the line like Angie Smith. And this rare gem of a book is like a steadying, sure hand taking you right into His presence in ways you never imagined. Vivid, profoundly biblical, yet girlfriend real with just-the-medicine-you-need-funny, every page is reviving hope for every woman. Simply, Angie Smith is a Bible teacher for such a time as this.

Ann Voskamp, New York Times best-selling author of One Thousand Gifts

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.
