My dear friend Annie Downs has launched a book this week and she doesn’t know this quite yet, but we are going to do a book giveaway on today’s blog. I LOVE surprises and I just decided that we are going to surprise her by sharing her brave moments with the world.
Annie is the type of person who make you want to laugh and cry and hug in ways you didn’t know possible. Not only has she been a friend to me, but she’s a friend to many and I am SO excited for her newest book, Let’s All Be Brave. Whether she knows it or not, she has been one of the people in my life who has pushed me to be the best version of me while still understanding that I move like a snail and being brave makes me break out in hives.
In Let’s All Be Brave, Annie’s first book for adults, Annie calls us to grab hold of the brave life you desperately desire. Using honest and often humorous illustrations from her own life, contemporary real-life examples, and fascinating biblical stories, she challenges us to step into those places that require courage and gives you the help you need to take the next step forward . . . even when it’s scary.
If you would like a FREE book, just drop your name in the comment box and we will pick a lucky winner to receive her book! If you want to purchase the book today, you can do so at our friendly online retailer and get it shipped asap. In Annie’s words,
…my hope, belief, and prayer is that when I am brave, the people around me will be brave in their everyday too. And then their friends will see it. And before you know it, the world will be a different place.
Me too, Annie. Me too.
