Woohoo! It’s time to kick off June with our Book Club Pick!
If you’re new to our Book Club have no fear – we keep it super simple. We read just one book a month, and each book is chosen for its ability to help us focus in on what matters, and simplify our home and faith. We’ve got an incredible list of books this year – you can check them all out here!
Without further adieu, here’s our 2022 AW Book Club selection for June:
What does the gospel say about your fears? What does it say about the irrational ones, like sinkholes in the Target parking lot? How does it speak to the rational ones, like pet scan predictions? And does the gospel have a word for the fears you feel you’ll have for life, like the possibility of losing the one you love most?
Growing up in the green room of SNL, being born to a fire-eater and adopted by a SWAT cop, having internal organs explode, and adopting a deaf girl from China, Scarlet Hiltibidal has been given some strange life experiences—and lived in fear through most of them.
But life changed for Scarlet when she learned to hold the gospel up to her fears. She realized that though she can’t fix herself or protect herself, Jesus walked into this broken, sad, scary place to rescue, love, and cast out her—and your—fear.
Seeing life in light of the cross will help you avoid fear, overcome fear when you can’t avoid it, and live beyond fear when you don’t overcome it. You don’t have to be afraid of all the things.
I’ve started this one but haven’t finished it – it was really entertaining (and relatable for me), but I started it and then Covid hit and my reading life took a turn. 🤣 I am really looking forward to reading it with you all!
