What Women Fear

I just read the most amazing book.  What Women Fear, written by Angie Smith, was such a great read.  It has inspired me in more ways than I can count.  Angie is such a unique writer and makes you feel like you are her friend as you read about her story and the struggles and fears she has faced.  I think the most important thing that I learned from the book was that it is ok to worry, to have fear, as long as you trust God and have faith along the way.

Shelia Walsh said it best in her review of Angie's book when she stated, "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."

To sum up the book, Angie said it best when she wrote, "You have a God who longs to be the peace of your life and the glory of your days.  He desires your relationship, your trust, and your obedience.  He doesn't want you to live a life of fear, but the only way you will really believe Him is to do the thing that seems impossible."

If you are looking for an inspiring, provoking, life-changing read, read this book.  You won't be disappointed!
