Old Testament Women on Their Walk from Fear to Faith

FEAR is an ever-present emotion with us—real fears and imagined ones. Fear is a normal human emotion designed by God to alert us to danger so that we will take action against it. Yet, fear can take root in us and cause us to give way to panic and hysteria. God knows this about us. When we are afraid, God wants us to trust Him and not give way to fear. Learning to do so is our walk from fear to FAITH.

This 11-lesson grace-based study invites you to journey alongside some special Old Testament women on their walk from fear to deeper faith in our amazing God. They were EVERYDAY WOMEN like we are who experienced fear like we do. From their life stories, we can see an EVER FAITHFUL GOD in action. Be challenged and encouraged as you discover and apply wonderful, timeless truths of God’s character to our modern, hectic lives.

"As the Curriculum Coordinator for [our women's Bible study], I can only tell you how difficult it is to find inductive studies that empower women to explore God's Word on a daily basis for themselves.  Your style of study is exactly what we are looking for! This past year we completed your study, ‘The Walk From Fear to Faith,’ and the 120 ladies who participate were so very blessed by the study. Thank you so very much." (Jennifer in MA)
