Publisher's Summary

What does the gospel say about your fears? What does it say about the irrational ones, like sinkholes in the Target parking lot? How does it speak to the rational ones, like PET scan predictions? And does the gospel have a word for the fears you feel you'll have for life, like the possibility of losing the one you love most?

Growing up in the green room of SNL, being born to a fire-eater and adopted by a SWAT cop, having internal organs explode, and adopting a deaf girl from China, Scarlet Hiltibidal has been given some strange life experiences - and lived in fear through most of them. But life changed for Scarlet when she learned to hold the gospel up to her fears and realized that though she can't fix herself or protect herself, Jesus walked into this broken, sad, scary place to rescue, love, and cast out her - and your - fear. 

Seeing life in light of the cross will help you avoid fear, overcome fear when you can’t avoid it, and live beyond fear when you don’t overcome it. You don't have to be afraid of all the things.

I will listen again and again!

I will also get the print version and share with friends and family members.

Scarlet has perfectly expressed so many things I personally identify with (and many others do also I suspect). The small, the in-between and the big things...ALL the things. They are covered. Jesus. The one WORD. He has covered them all. As a long-time believer, I know this. As an all-the-time weak sinner, I forget this. (#struggling).

Thank you, Jesus, for Scarlet. For the talent, intellect, humor and relatability You have given her, for the wisdom beyond her young years, for her sweet, humble spirit, and her willingness to be used by You in this way to remind readers and listeners of Your strength, power and love in the midst of inevitable scary things. Thank You for all the Scriptures she shared in this work, beautifully applying Your words to ease fears with Your love and banish lies with Your Truth.

I personally have scary things in front of me right now and I feel more hopeful and encouraged and less anxious and worried. Scarlet has, in a way, cleared away clouds that blurred my ability to look to Jesus. Thank you, Scarlet, for this work.

To those who are thinking about reading or listening I say, the sooner the better. Drop whatever you are doing and consume this book now.

A+ and a great listen

This book is refreshing and a great listen. Scarlet Hiltibidal wrote the book and she reads it here. Unlike most authors, her tone and style are great.
The book makes me laugh, think, and maybe cry a little.
You must listen to this.

Big Fan - 1000% Relatable

I loved this book. I laughed and cried. I want to get the hard-copy too so I can read it again with a highlighter - it is filled with verses and quotes I LOVED. I feel like Scarlet and I have so much in common from anxiety to striving for perfection and God’s love...and kind of being hot messes - and our husbands would be kindred spirits too with their passion for God (to where they sometimes cry when they pray) and patient kindness toward us as their wives and love for dragon stories. I heard Scarlet interviewed on a podcast (20,000 Reasons) and I knew I wanted to read her book ASAP. She tells funny stories from her life and relates them to the gospel and Scripture in a therapeutic way that feeds my soul. I recommend this book for moms, worn out Christians and any creative type people with hyper-active imaginations and big feelings. The most moving part of the book was the story of Joy that they adopted..:it just left me saying, “Wow.”

A great book!

I appreciated Scarlet’s authenticity. I love the way she spoke about fears but more importantly how God and His Word is what intervened to speak truth. Such a good book. Scarlett is funny and real and says things i think but haven never said out loud!

Great book and narrator!

Scarlet shares in this book on how we can continually remind ourselves why we don’t need to fear and can look to God whenever doubts and fears come in. The plethora of examples are not only entertaining but great reminders of how to live out honoring God in the unknown or when you are afraid. Highly recommended this listen!
