Not Afraid: A New Anthology from Civitas Press

Not Afraid cover.

It’s out today, featuring my essay “Big Fears Come in Small Packages” (excerpted from Chapters 11 and 14 of A Smile for Anna). It’s available online through Civitas Press and at  I will be receiving my own copy in a couple of weeks. Here’s a description:

Fear is a very real and powerful inhibiting experience for so many people. It keeps people locked in a state of static oppression, unable to live life. But what would happen if a group of people confronted their fear and chose to tell the story? The results would literally change their lives. And possibly yours.

In Not Afraid: Stories Of Confronting Fear, a courageous list of authors boldly sharing their stories of what it means to live daringly and with a sense of renewed purpose. You will find words of hope. You will find that it is possible to be Not Afraid.
