What Women Fear

What Women Fear

Hello friends!

You know that awkward eighth grade thing where you want to dance with someone but you know you might be rejected so you don’t ask?

Well, that’s kind of how it feels when you have a new book coming out.

So, the next month or so is going to be kind of like me looking at you across the gymnasium and hoping my nerve holds out.


With that said, here’s the promo video for my new book, and below it you will find a handy-dandy little button that you can use in the event that you would like to pre-order it.

I can honestly say I poured my heart and soul into it and I am praying it blesses you richly. There will be lots more talk about it coming up soon, but for now….wanna dance?

or click HERE to order from Barnes & Noble:)

(Thank you for your support, friends!)

    I have chills and I cannot wait to read this. I also read Fearless and go back to it on a regular basis. I think that the fear that a wife and a mother feels every day – a good day – a bad day – every single day is just overwhelming some times. I read these blogs where the husband was killed in a car crash or the once healthy child suddenly falls ill and it is very difficult for me to not feel fear. I am a happy, confident, easy going Christian woman who fears one thing – losing the people that I have built my life around. I have been a follower of yours for forever and honestly did not read your first book because I am a softy. I don’t like to watch scary movies and I turn off the TV if something happens to the heroines children. I followed your journey on the blog and I remeber holding my babies and crying as I read your words. I am so excited to pre-order this book!!!!! I am rambling now and someone is saying Mooooooooommmmyyyyyyyy so I have to go but I rarely comment and felt I should. ūüėČ

    So thrilled for you… and the new book deal as well.

    The book trailer reminded me of the song “I Quietly Turned to You” from the musical Celebrate Life! (We did it this spring at FBCNash. If he hasn’t already told you about it, ask Alan. Cynthia Clawson did a great job!)

    Looking forward to reading this one. (Wish LifeWay.com would do an ebook edition that would work with Kindle!)

    Wow Angie!¬† Yet again, you’ve reached me to a depth I dared-not to admit I struggled.¬† FEAR.¬† Oh my, how just the “look inside” feature on amazon.com of your newest book has truly touched me.¬† I wonder why some of us, like you and I, are so sensitive to being “good,” or appearing to “be good.”¬† I guess it’s probably fear of rejection and an underlying feeling of sense of being “unworthy?”¬† I am able to relate so closely to your own fears of inadequacy and previous “mistakes” and often have a hard time forgiving myself of my shortcomings, even though I know in God’s eyes, He’s forgiven me and loves me unconditionally.¬† A wise Christian counselor once told me it’s called toxic shame.¬† That no matter what we do, good or bad, we’re always beating ourselves up with “I could’ve done better…”¬† I struggle with often feeling I’m not “good enough…”¬† I just can’t wait to read your next book.¬† Thank you for boldly and confidently sharing your own struggles with fear with all of us in hopes that we’ll all fellowship together through it and learn from each other.¬†¬† ….anxiously awaiting!¬† Thanks my friend.¬† Dawna

    If you ever wonder if God is really using you…or whether God is in it…tell the devil to GO AWAY! ¬†God has you right where He wants you and is using you for His glory…bonus…you get to go along for the ride. ¬†I stumbled upon your twitter account when someone I follow mentioned you. Something (Holy Spirit) made me want to know more…she didn’t say much but she said enough that I wanted to know who you were and what your story was. ¬†I starting watching youtube videos and what I found was both bitter and sweet- you became my hero overnight. ¬†You see, I have been struggling with infertility for years and have struggled in so many ways. ¬†When I watched you and listened to your story…it was like watching Jesus. ¬†Steven Furtick said this ¬†in a message he gave last week “if He doesn’t¬†
    do what you are asking Him to do- He will give you the strength to stand up under it in a way that will cause the watching world to know that He alone is God”. ¬†When I heard this I immediately thought of you. God’s grace is streaming through you in such a powerful way and I want my life to reflect the same thing. So…I started following you on twitter and you mentioned a new book. Ah, a book on fear…no wonder the Lord lead me to your blog and twitter page. Fear is another thing I¬†have been struggling with…pre-ordered the book…can’t wait to read it!

    Just saw you interviewed on James Robison’s show. ¬†I cried…….amazingly enough, this is yet one more confirmation just in the last two weeks that FEAR is the next “spiritual project” that I am working on with the Lord. ¬†I have adrenal fatigue, very little cortisol to get me through the daily struggles. ¬†Struggle with my health after over-doing it for so many years as a teacher, infant-toddler therapist, lay speaker and minister’s wife. ¬†I became convinced that I must get to the root of this issue. ¬†I wake up at night having hallucinations/night terrors when I am overtired or have taken certain medications. ¬†This all goes back to my early childhood when I almost died during rheumatic fever and to lots of issues where my mother emotionally and physically abused me. ¬†I am now 65 and KNOW that enough is enough! ¬†Satan has had his hay day long enough. ¬†I spend a lot of money for a special doctor and lots of supplements and am praying for deliverance from fear. ¬†Though a retired teacher, I still must work two jobs to make ends meet……and then I get too tired and the anxiety just escalates until I have a melt-down. ¬†This recently happened at Christmas, just trying to do all the extras at church and home for the holidays. ¬†On top of that my mother, now 92, is full of pain and anxiety due to health issues and has dementia as well. ¬†So it is hard dealing with her. ¬†I KNOW in my heart that God is sufficient……but I think you are right…..surrounding yourself with the Word makes all the difference. ¬†I have ordered your book and am looking forward to reading it. ¬†I, too, am a writer and am working on a book about the healing of my emotions and body physically. ¬†It is about what I experienced in the last 10 years dealing with all my baggage. ¬†I am so busy right now that I haven’t done much with it but have 5 journals that are the basis of the book. ¬†You have given me courage to do what you have done……to reach out to others who are also in pain. I recently purchased Ray Vanderlaan’s DVD study on Living in the Desert. ¬†In it, he tells that we are there, during our times of distress, can’t see what is ahead because of the mountains surrounding us but during that journey, God supplies us with what we need to survive. ¬†He leads us through to the other side……that is His promise. ¬†He is our good shepherd. ¬† God bless you as you write, as you speak and as you mother your sweet little family. Standing on the promises, ¬† Irene L. Hatton, EnGedi Ministries

    Hi Angie!
    You describe me so well today when I watched you on James Robison.¬† As far as I can remember I, too, was consummed with fear.¬† I was scared of getting killed, attacked, sexually abuse (which I was several times at a very early age), scared of dying, scared of losing the ones I loved, scared of the dark, scared of being abandonned, scared of not being loved, scared of rejection, scared of being alone. I was going to bed most of the time crying and being afraid.¬† Unfortuntely my father did not understand so he was yelling at me to stop crying and go to sleep and when I didn’t, he would come and hit me saying that now I would cry for something….

    I went through major depressions and yes I was put on medication (Collins there is no shame in that) but although I still battle with fears and anxiety, by knowing God through His Word and by His grace and Love, I am a lot better and I know He will completely deliver me.

    There is no fear in Love and God’s perfect love will bring me to wholeness.

    When God is for you who can be against you.

    I pray that each one of you that will read this comment, will be delivered from their fears.

    God died on the cross so we could be free.¬† Let yourself rest on Jesus’ precious and loving heart….

    You are free!¬† Don’t let the ennemy tell you any different, he’s a liar and already defeated. Read and learn who you are in Christ.

    God bless you Angie and the beautiful calling on your life.  You are a beautiful person inside and out.

    Thank you for letting God use your ashes and turning them into beauties.

    I bought this book for a friend who is seeking, but I thought I better read it first. Such great insight into myself and my own fears and challenges in giving it all to God. Thank you for putting your heart on paper and sharing it with the rest of us.

    Angie, I bought this book at the Philly Women of Faith, the only book I purchased there.¬† I started out reading it feverishly, highlighting as I went along.¬† Then I allowed my busy schedule to get in my way of finishing it (I am really not a good reader, would rather listen to a book on tape).¬† Each time I would pick it back up, I was captivated all over again!¬† I just finished it today with tears in my eyes.¬† I just wanted to affirm you, your openness, your writing style (felt like you were in the room talking to me).¬† You are a terrific writer and speaker!¬† I don’t have paralyzing fears, just pretty normal I believe, but I think I have a greater understanding of fear and faith and I think it will (and already has) helped me in working with other women.¬† Thank you!¬† Keep going!

    Hi Angie! My name is Angie as well. I am currently reading your book I Will Carry You and wow!!! I recently lost a baby at 10 weeks and your book speaks volumes as to how I felt and contiue to feel at times.¬† We tried unsuccessfully for 7 years to have a child on our own.¬† After lots of prayer we decided to do invitro and became pregnant.¬† Without prayer and faith in OUR AWESOME GOD added to a little help from a dr this would not have been.¬† We welcomed a sweet baby girl in May 2008.¬† After her birth we continued to try on our own for a second and recently said that without doing invitro again that we would be happy with one.¬† So blessed to have her and we are happy with that.¬† Then a nice surprise came and gosh we were¬†ALL so EXCITED!!!! It was heartbreaking to learn at 10 weeks the baby had no heartbeat.¬† Our baby girl was devastated when we had to sit down and tell her that her “brother” went to live with Jesus! She still talks about him just about everyday. A child’s love and devotion is like no other, so innocent.¬† Prayers to you and your family!! God Bless and thank you so much for sharing your story!

I have been only reading like 5 pages of What Women Fear each day because I don’t want it to END because I would miss having you speak Truth in to my heart each day with your cup of coffee and arm wrapped around me!

    I started the book today, I even have fear about starting a book about fear, ha.  I have always had a fear of losing loved ones, and have lost my mom a couple of years ago.  I have a child with special needs cerebral palsy and gtube that was given 3 months to live when he was born, and he is now 8 and a half.  He is extremely medically fragile and amazingly resilant.  I live in fear of losing him, not going to lie.  I am hoping to work on this through your book and am greatful that I saw your book advertised on theconfidentmom.com.  I went out and bought it as soon as heard about this.

  • Reply Cindy July 3, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    Angie, I just recently heard the song, “I Will Carry You”. ¬†I burst into tears. ¬†Several years ago, my husband and I got pregnant. ¬†We were so excited to welcome the arrival of our first child. ¬†Unfortunately, the day we went for our 5 month ultrasound, we found out our son was deceased. ¬†Because of some other complications, I had to be induced and give birth. ¬†18 hours of labor later we saw our baby boy, Chayton Alexander, for only a few moments and then he was gone. The doctors assured me that with surgery, all could be corrected and I would have another child. ¬†After the surgery, I developed a terrible infection because of a mistake on the doctor’s part, which destroyed any further chances I had of having my own children. ¬†We did everything we could medically do and I prayed and prayed, but we never could have any children. ¬†We decided to adopt, but were told that the waiting list for a baby was at least 10 years and many thousands of dollars in the US. ¬†We became adoptive parents through our local county and were told that there were no babies to adopt. ¬†They matched us to a 3 year old little girl. ¬†We love her more than life itself, but there is not a day that goes by that I don’t feel the pain of loss and wander what it is that I have missed. ¬†I watch as my sisters, friends, and even the high school students I teach have their own babies, while I will never. ¬†I just wait and pray for the day when I will finally meet my son in heaven. ¬†Until then, I do what I can to survive.

    Good morning! I live in San Antonio and attend¬†Oak Hills Church – Journey campus – How did I miss you?!¬† I have¬†been reading What Women Fear for over a month now. This morning I feared picking it up! It has touched so many raw spots¬†in my soul.¬† This morning I read about the search for significance¬†thaat threatens to rob us of the very good work¬†to which Jesus has called each one of us. ¬†Thank you for the realization- the WORDS- that¬†it is in our insignificance -in¬†Christ- that we bring our Heavenly Father glofry. I am that woman – wife, mom, gramdmom, Bible study teacher, leader of young women – who STILL wrestles with the lies of the enemy, trying to comvince me that my¬†worth has something to do with me and my latest performance.¬†¬† I am so grateful for the reminder to compare myself to the heart of my God, not others. Angie your words are good and true and right on target to the heart of women. I am recommending your book as I believe it hits straight to¬†women’s¬† (at least this woman!) hearts. P.S. I really am bummed I missed you at Oak Hills. How can I see your speaking schedule? ¬†

    Love you sister! Just finished What Women Fear. I must tell you that in a family filled with stressors and potential fears that could fly me to the moon, your book could not have come at a more perfect time. It was God’s plan indeed that I had your book from a WOF conference in Baltimore…..I brought it to the beach with me this week. I find myself re-reading pages and pages of your book, highlighting as I go, realizing how much your words have eased my fears this week. It is like doing my very own private bible study on the beach! Bless you for your encouragement….I cannot WAIT to read I Will Carry You.

    I feel like we’re pen pals or something because my mom gave me “I Will Carry You” a couple of weeks ago and after I read it I bought “What Women Fear.” You so eloquently examine what it is like to be a woman of God in the midst of life, grief, and everythign else.

    Hello Angie, I saw you speaking @ the Women of Faith Conference in San Antonio Texas. I was so touched by your testimony. So I bought your book “What Women Fear” . Needless to say I fell in love with it. It spoke to me in so many ways. So I decided to start a Bible Study on this book. I will let you know how it goes; we are starting Jan 26, 2013. You are an amazing writer and such a role model for many women. May the Lord Bless you! In Christ Irina Quintana

    I have never commented before. I remember when you wrote your boob, “I will carry you. You touched my heart in so many ways.

    I have a friend who is pregnant with her first baby, a precious baby boy. They were told that their blessing has, Anencephally. . This is where the baby does not have a skull to cover his brain. He will not be able to sustain life outside the womb. When the parents were informed about their baby through ultrasound. The Dr. told them that they needed to abort the baby that day. Being the Christains that they are. They choose “To Carry Him.” They feel that God gives and HE takes.

    I told her about your book and she read it. She felt such a connection with you.

    The time is coming soon. She will be giving birth to Ezekle Anthony very soon via c-section. Her heart is hurting because he is alive with in her. His heart beats, she feels him move and she feels that he is safe in her womb. She is placing all of this in Gods hands.

    Her one wish is to have a bench made in her baby’s memory. They are very expensive. I was wondering if you knew any way to fund raise or any kind of foundation that might be able to help her get the memorial bench. My heart hurts so much for her. I am also so very proud of her.

    Would you please take a momant tocheck out her facebook page. “Blessings of Ezekel Anthony.” It would mean so much to her. To me. Maybe you will be able to lend some insight.

    Thank you so very much.

I haven’t been able to find much about your beliefs on your websites and as a pastor before reading or recommending them I’d like to have some idea what your doctrinal views are. Usually if I can’t find this information on the website if I can know what church an author is associated, it lets me know. Thanks!
