Fear comes in many forms. Avoiding a potentially dangerous situation represents a healthy fear. However, unhealthy fears like fears of rejection or loss often cause women to live with worry, stress, and without confidence. In her book, When a Woman Lets Go of Her Fears, Cheryl Brodersen shares stories from her own struggle with fear, exposes fear and its effects, and shows women how to move past fear into faith and victory.
When a Woman Lets Go of Her Fears is not the type of book to sit down and read from beginning to end in four hours. It took me several months to read this book as I read only a few sections each day. While not everyone would want to read it as slowly as I did, I recommend reading no more than a chapter a day. Reading each day about the same topic has a way of enforcing the information and spiritual lessons into one's memory.
Though I think the book could have used a bit more humor, the author effectively connects with the reader by sharing her personal struggles. I loved the story of the “pity biscuits.” I won't give away any spoilers, but it was a situation that I could completely relate to.
Brodersen packs information, doctrine, and plenty of encouragement into the book. I found the content of the book to be Biblically correct. The questions at the end of each chapter were relevant and thought-provoking. I recommend this book to any woman struggling with fear and lack of confidence.
