Overview

Be Your Own Kind of Brave!

Bravery isn’t reserved for only women serving on international mission teams, or for women who serve in the military or on a police force. Every woman is brave, much braver than she might think. But feelings of doubt and inadequacy try to stop us from living up to our God-given potential to be courageous women of faith.

In Everyday Brave, Janet explores the extraordinary actions of fifty ordinary women in the Bible, women who display bravery in usual and unusual circumstances. Thirty present-day women also give their testimony of realizing their strength and courage through God’s love. As Janet shares the stories of these women, she reminds us that the heart and substance of bravery, even in the face of fear, comes from unconditionally placing our hope in the only One who can give us the courage to stay the course.
