Fear can be a tyrant—a bully we can’t hide from. It can paralyze our spirit, damage our relationships, and hinder our faith. In five heartfelt sessions based on her book, Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves, speaker and author Trillia Newbell invites women to explore their fears and how those fears impact their relationships, self-esteem, peace of mind, and walk with God. Trillia will walk through Scriptures that show God’s love and strength when we are afraid and His faithfulness in times of trouble. Take a look at this video overview of the series. 

Each session of Fear and Faith also features real-life stories of women who are wrestling with fear due to tragic events, difficult circumstances, or deep anxiety about what may or may not happen. In this story from the series, Cheryl talks about how she struggles to feel secure in relationships after being abandoned by her father.  

Who do you know who struggles with insecurity and fear? Who feels like they will never measure up? Who may have faced a tragedy and live in fear that more bad things will happen? Who could you reach out to as you start this Bible study?
