Nicole Unice offers a lovely tome of encouragement with “Brave Enough.” She works off the premise of what if your worried energy was gone and you could experience a life with more joy and wonder … if the weight of responsibility and failure were gone.
With “Brave Enough,” she shows women how to experience a life filled with courage — to be brave-enough women filled with Jesus-courage. Unice, who writes openly and vulnerably, offers vignettes from her own personal life, as well as the lives of those she knows to encourage the reader on their path to braveness. More importantly, she offers many excellent examples from the Bible and the life of Christ.
She offers practical steps on how to pursue a brave life — choosing courage in everyday choices, finding grace, and embracing and practicing spiritual survival skills, for example.
Each chapter ends with questions of reflection, as well as a prayer — meaning this book can be read through in its entirety, or one chapter at a time as a daily devotional. The book ends with a sizable appendix on “The Word in Courage,” where Unice arranges Scripture passages by theme — God’s passion for us, His power and protection, and His priorities, promises and provision.
This is an excellent book to help the Christian woman in her battle against fear and anxiety, and finding the courage to be “brave-enough.”
Five stars out of five.
