What Women Fear

I am shaking in my boots here, folks :)

No, it isn’t available for pre-order quite yet but I wanted to include you all as much as possible!!!

I am waiting on edits now but the release date is September 1, 2011.

As far as the quality of writing and the content, it is the piece I am the most proud of. The Lord showed me some things in Scripture I had missed many times, and I pray you are as blessed as I was by what He taught me.

I have long been fascinated by the questions God asks of His people in Scripture. Why does He ask? Clearly He knows the answers, right? Well, as I studied men and women in the Bible who were facing some kind of fear (fear of failure, fear of being found out, fear of being insignificant etc) guess what I also noticed?

God asked them questions.

And I believe the heart of the way we are called to deal with the fear is in the way we answer these questions. So, I wrote about my fears, my life, my God, and the answers that I believe shape us as we face fear.

Want to see the cover?!?!?! (Please say yes, please say yes…)


I will keep you posted on more details as soon as I have them, but please be praying for me as I head into edits!!! SO excited to share this with you all!!!!

Much love,

  • slightlycosmopolitan

    Oh my gosh… I definitely need to read this. I fear so much – not so much at a conscious level (although I have my share of that), but when I step back and truly observe myself I realize how many things I do out of fear I hardly even realize is there. Looking forward to reading this!

  • Csest93

    Oh I saw your tweet and clicked on the link there only to realize it just wasn’t opening fast enough (I’m on my iPad and am still trying to figure it out). Thought I was going to have a full blown panic attack because I was so impatient in the 6.3 seconds it took! Ü Love the cover and am so excited about the topic. Can’t wait!!!!!!!

    Beautiful cover Angie. I know you’ll do great as a WoF speaker, but I will keep you in my
    prayer nonetheless!

  • http://thepartythatneverquits.blogspot.com Jen

    Oh my gosh, Ange, the cover is PERFECT. And I’m so stinking proud of you for writing the hard stuff. Love you muchest and most.

    • http://thepartythatneverquits.blogspot.com Jen

      I will just add, that Adam just saw it, and was quite put out that you only wrote it from a woman’s perspective… ;) Having chronic anxiety himself, he is looking forward to reading it, but thinks he may not get anything out of it. Can you ease his mind?

      nb… for those not familiar with me… I’m kidding ;)

  • Purposefulmom

    Well done Angie! You should be so proud of yourself. I praise God for the beautiful gift of you.

  • Saminda

    Oooo, I LOVE the cover Angie!! :D I cannot wait to read this book. :) Blessings. xxx

  • Anna

    Oh Angie!!!

    You have NO idea how much I have wanted you to write about this topic! When you asked us for topics a while back this was my only request, and I selfishly did not want your next book to be about homeschooling or sewing but about THIS.
    Looking forward to it so so so much.

    Will pray for you during this editing-season…

  • Dana

    Love the cover, the subject, and of course the author! You give hope to other bereaved moms that there can be life AFTER. Thank you.

    What a wonderful! I can NOT wait until September to read it! I just finished your other book a week or two ago. I could not put it down and was crying by like page 7. I love the vulnerability. Thanks for being open to what God has put on your heart to share with other women.

  • http://itwasbroughtonbylove.blogspot.com Southern Gal

    Can’t wait to read it, Angie. I’ve always loved the way you bring truth to light through your words. The cover is amazing! You might not be able to answer this, but I’ve always wondered, does the author give suggestions on the cover or do you just pick from samples they give you? (I certainly don’t know editor lingo, do I?) Do you know who the model is on your cover? I’ll stop now…

  • http://www.jasperwalls.wordpress.com Melissa

    That is a stunning cover!!!

    LOVE the cover! I can’t wait to read the book! It looks like the book will be released the month before we move our family over to Namibia to be missionaries.

    Angie, I can’t begin to tell you how much I look forward to reading your new book. “Fear” has been on the forefront of my life the past 7 months and I have almost written a book myself about it using all the scriptures in the Word that deal with fear. (And there are so many) It is such a struggle for so many people…you wouldn’t believe!!

    May God bless this new book and use it as a tool to help people, like me, who are struggling.
    Love you and your sweet spirit!

  • Lisa

    I am facing a job loss right now and I pray daily for God’s peace… NO FEAR! Wish your book was out today! RIGHT NOW!!

    Fear is so gripping. Such a life changer because it truly dictates our choices and next moves in life. It overcomes us too much.

    Sounds like a much-needed book. :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=503648234 Anonymous

    I heard a beautiful quote from a pastor a few weeks ago that I continually remind myself ~
    Fear sees the bad in the good! Faith sees the good in the bad!

    So looking forward to this book, Angie!
    Way to go!!

    The cover is amazing, too!! Is that YOU!?

  • Jean M

    I love the cover! Can’t wait to get the book. I have just caught up on several of your posts, and I think one thing women fear is being a wife/mom/worker/friend/server and doing it all well, or nothing well.

    This book could not find it anywhere in Hungary. Do you think appeared in Hungarian? Very interested. I looked at several places. I have a website, which is very similar to the Amazons (www.konyv-konyvek.hu). My experience says if you do not find something, it nowhere else in the country.

    (but really. ?)

    September is SO far away– how does your publisher feel about you just sharing all of it in blog-post segments *before* September 1st?

    … I thought so. Do you cover the topic of “patience” in this book, because I *fear* I have too little of it! In seriousness, thank you for continuing to share your heart with those you don’t even know need it most.
