Author: Grace Fox
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Before “meeting” Grace Fox through this blog, I’d never heard of either her or her book, so I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first sat down to read. Was she a good writer? Would it be worth the read?
I can honestly say now on both counts, “Yes.”
Moving From Fear to Freedom addresses several concerns we all worry about such as the fear of personal inadequacy, the fear of facing the ghosts in our past, the fear of rejection, the fear over our family’s well-being, fear for the storms of life, and fear of an unknown future.
At the end of each chapter there were “Points for Progress” (discussion questions), “Promises to Ponder” (Scriptures on the subject), and “Praying the Promises.” Each of these were immensely helpful, but the one I found to be the most transforming was “Praying the Promises.”
It was something I’d never done before, and I found praying Scripture really helped make those particular verses come alive to me in a whole new way. Something about praying the promises God has given to us through Scripture made the verses so much more real and potent to me. For that alone, I’m grateful I found Grace Fox’s book.
To even read Moving From Fear to Freedom was freeing because I gained new perspectives on fears I’d stared at for quite some time. Every chapter offered something of value, and I came away from it feeling encouraged and inspired that, yes, freedom from fear is possible. I also left feeling more equipped to handle fear flare-ups in the future.
Along with the book, you can also buy the DVD and Study Guide if it’s something you’d like to do with a small group, so that’s helpful as well.
For anyone who struggles with the fears and worries of everyday life, I’d highly recommend this book.
