Why Janet Wrote the Book
God started my journey of writing Everyday Brave during morning quiet times. The Lord opened my eyes to the amazing accomplishments of biblical women. I was in awe of their courage and boldness. We need to bolster each other toward bravery just to withstand the barrage of daunting news today and the escalating attacks on our faith. It’s comforting to know that incredible women in the Bible also experienced scary and threatening times. They were victorious, and we can be too.
As I asked contemporary women to share their stories of times when they were brave or courageous, I found that most women don’t see themselves as brave even though they’re often courageous in everyday activities.
I had to tap into my everyday brave just to write this book. I'm not an expert on bravery and I don't have all the answers for what makes us brave and courageous, but I do have a tight relationship with the One who does. He instilled in all of us brave hearts to push beyond what we think we're capable of achieving, and so I started writing.
About the Book
Be Your Own Kind of Brave!
Bravery isn’t reserved for only women serving on international mission teams, or for women who serve in the military, on a police force, firefighters, or first responders. Every woman is brave, much braver than she might think. But feelings of doubt and inadequacy try to stop us from living up to our God-given potential to be courageous women of faith.
In Everyday Brave, Janet explores the extraordinary actions of fifty ordinary women in the Bible, women who display bravery in usual and unusual circumstances. Twenty-eight present-day women also give their testimony of realizing their strength and courage through God’s love. As Janet shares the stories of these women, she reminds us that the heart and substance of bravery, even in the face of fear, comes from unconditionally placing our hope in God who gives us the courage to stay the course.
