Do you know what it's like to walk on eggshells around someone out of fear? Fear is crippling, but you don't have to be a slave to fear any longer. As a people-pleaser, you might have stayed in a relationship or withstood abuse from someone to side-step conflict, but you can be freed from people who bring fear into your life. This booklet will help you define the root of your fear, whether it's sexual abuse or something else that's just as damaging, and help you move past it to healing and wholeness.
Kim Vastine tells her powerful story of entrapment as a child with a sexually abusive uncle and a physically abusive father. She shares what her deepest struggles were as a little girl, wanting to blame herself because she didn't say "no" to either abuser and feeling the pressure to be perfect. Neither avenue lead to wholeness; it wasn't until Kim developed her Godly fear of the Lord that she found hope and healing. Sharon Kay Ball's "Steps to Freedom" section prepares women for the trauma they will uncover when thinking back to memories of abuse. She gives women steps to forgiveness to ultimately turn their fears into what makes them courageous.
Fear to Courage will bring you hope and wholeness. It will speak to your heart and will strengthen your faith. It includes questions and Scripture passages.

Fear to Courage is a 96-page minibook that is part of the Freedom Series created by author and popular women's speaker, Michelle Borquez. Women desperately want to get to the other side of fear, shame, low self-esteem, hopelessness, or any other issue that keeps them from finding their ultimate freedom in life, but often they don't know how. The book's authors use biblical truths to guide readers out of their unhealthy fears into a place of understanding, healing, and freedom...
We live in a broken fallen world, and sometimes need help in making sense of the hurtful, painful things in our lives. These books are real stories and can help women find freedom from the paralyzing effects of betrayal, fear and deception through the liberating truths of Scripture.
The Freedom Series deals with many issues that I have come across during the decades I have counseled people at my church. Each book is great for its designed application. However, the Fear to Courage book stands out the most to me since so many are driven by fear. This book is so Bible-based, very direct, easy to understand, and also applicable. It is refreshing to have a resource that doesn't just talk about an issue, but shows how to apply biblical concepts to it. I highly recommend this series!
