My Review

The thing that caught my attention about this book was the title. I mean, is it really possible to find your brave? In my current life situations, brave is the furthest thing from me. I am in the midst of a hurricane. The winds are so strong that it seems impossible to stand on my feet. The rain is so heavy, and so fast, that I cannot see far in front of me. And the depth is creeping up. Surely threatening to overtake me. And I see no end in site. There are decisions that need to be made. These decisions will affect my family for years to come. At this point, I have no clue as to what the best decision will be. I know what I want. I know that the decision that I want will probably be the best for the family, but is that just my selfish mind talking? But I know things cannot continue down the path they are going now. So, as I read the title of this book I thought I may as well give it a try! After all, anything is better than constant feeling of hopelessness, lost, unloved. I am so glad I did! This book has been an excellent encouragement for me! The author has an excellent style of writing that will keep your attention, and you will have no problem keeping up. The only problem you will have, is putting it down!

The author shares some personal stories from the storms she has faced in life, as well as the passage from scripture, Acts 27, where Paul endured a storm and a shipwreck. Between the two, you will be so encouraged to find your brave, and face your toughest battles!

I highly recommend this book. You can purchase online or at your favorite book store! I rate this book a 5/5 stars!
