One of the things I love about writing is all of you! This space is where you can come for conversation, encouragement and other resources to take along on your journey.
Do you wake up in the morning just hoping you make it through the day? Do you hear the word brave and want to run the other way?
If hearing the word “brave” sends your stomach into a tizzy or causes your palms to sweat profusely, then this book is for you. If you believe other people are brave, but would never use that word to describe yourself, this book is for you. If you are ready to step out of your comfort zone and say “yes” to God’s call, then you are ready to explore brave faith. Together we will journey for 31 days to learn, explore and embrace God’s truth by drawing closer to Him. My prayer for you is that this book leads you to courageous “yeses” when you step out of the boat and walk toward Jesus. YOU are braver than you know! Come step out with me today.
What others are saying about Brave Faith:
Susan says, “Sometimes brave faith is just doing it afraid! Ms Geisen writes 31 thoughtful devotions to work through doing it anyway! With scripture and provoking questions to cause the reader to dig a bit deeper and hopefully find BRAVE FAITH”
Michele says, “It certainly doesn’t happen often enough, but when it does, it’s a glorious thing — the meeting over tea that has all the marks of the C.S. Lewis definition of friendship:
““Friendship … is born at the moment when one [wo]man says to another “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
Open the cover of Brave Faith by Mary Geisen and begin to ponder with an understanding friend what it means to move toward the courage that leaves “fear, uncertainty, and other stumbling blocks behind.” Read Mary’s personal narrative, and find yourself also yearning to be on the way to a soul-enriching journey down the road and away from your comfort zone.
Dipping her brush into the Scriptural accounts of the lives of brave saints, Mary also consults with well-known authors who have offered their wisdom on the brave life including Holly Barrett, Preston Yancey, Annie Downs, Emily Freeman, Jennie Allen, and Ann Voskamp.
Living brave may mean correcting our misunderstandings of what qualifies as brave. In her own journey, Mary found herself staying put when that was not her plan at all. Caring for her father in the final days of his life, Mary put her dreams on hold and found a contentment that was every bit as inexplicable as the wild courage that enabled her to tackle a mid-life missions trip to Nicaragua.”
What happens when you join together a flash mob of writers who write full out for five minutes on a one word prompt? Creative chaos, new friendships and lessons galore!
This book is a compilation of stories, experiences, and funny anecdotes from a community of writers who love nothing more than to gather each week to write. The Five Minute Friday community is a place where friends gather and always have room to welcome new friends. Open the pages and read if you dare. You will be glad you did!
