Overview

Dare to Believe

Every woman struggles to believe she is who God says she is and to believe the stunning promises He whispers to her heart. But when you're a hot mess (and we all are to one degree or another), it's hard to imagine things can be different—that you can be different.

Author Julie Gillies has experienced broken dreams, trauma, and plenty of drama, but she has also encountered the holy hope and promises of God. She longs to help you...

  • understand your identity in Christ instead of believing "I'll always be this way"
  • embrace your true significance instead of feeling less-than
  • hold on to peace instead of freaking out when hard things keep happening
  • grasp your God-given destiny and begin walking in it

It's not that God doesn't bless hot messes. (If that were the case, where would any of us be?) But you don't have to remain a hot mess. It's time to receive and experience God's hope and promises in a fresh way!

Includes questions for group study or personal reflection.
