Unafraid by Susie Davis…
What”s the book about?
Though I don’t know where your fears started or how deep they sit in your soul, I do know this: Fear is a heavy burden. One of the heaviest you can carry. It’s exhausting and overwhelming. And it’s not from God.
—Susie Davis, Unafraid
In 1978 Susie Davis watched as a thirteen-year-old classmate entered her classroom and killed her teacher. As a witness to one of the earliest school shootings in our nation, Susie faced years of paralyzing fear and an intense distrust of God. But God relentlessly pursued her and, over time, broke Susie’s fear addiction.
In Unafraid, Susie offers her hard-won insights about how we can trust God in the midst of our fears about violence, disease, and personal tragedy. With you, she asks, “How do we live unafraid? How do we remain aware of world events without giving in to fear? How do we make everyday choices to stop letting ‘What if?’ control us?”
As Susie shows us, it is possible to break fear’s grasp on our lives. We can be aware of the terrible without forgetting the beautiful. We can look up with joy and realize the remarkable truth: Jesus wants to take our fear and give us, in its place, true peace. Walk this liberating journey with her and learn what it means to live unafraid.

My opinion:4 stars out of 5.
Sadly, fear is the main factor in human’s life. It dominates through trauma and bad experience, or even negative emotions. Fear grabs people’s mind and dictates the heart… It paralyzes and kills creativity, freedom and peace!
It’s time to get rid of the fear…to show who is boss. Through her book, Susie teaches how she overcame the fear in her life after witnessing the gruesome homicide in front of her eyes… in the classroom.
Like her teaching. I still have fears in my life…but the battle is on!
