Sometimes a single word or phrase has the power to change the course of our lives, and Chickening IN is that word for me.  A silly twist on a common idiom spoken by my six-year-old daughter that propelled me to stop living in fear and to start living in faith.  Like the flip of a switch, Chickening IN created an epiphany or “God Moment.”   Where there was hopelessness, fear and doubt…now there is new found hope, courage and strength.
But Chickening IN is not just for me…it’s for you too because fear is an emotion experienced by everyone. We live in an unpredictable and uncontrollable world where things change often, and fear can plant itself deeply within our hearts.  Chickening IN is a practical approach to defeating the fear and doubt that is preventing us from becoming brave, bold women of God.
Do you long to overcome the fear and doubt that is sabotaging the life God has for you?  Are you ready to grow in courage and put feet to your faith? You’ve come to the right place!  I’d like to invite you to join me on a transformation journey to stop chickening out and start Chickening IN.  By accepting my invitation you will embark into the land of transformation.  A place where fear-filled lives can be reconstructed into courageous faith-filled lives.  Chickening IN will require hard work and honest assessment, but I will lead you step by step through the 8 pillars of Transformation that have changed my life and that can change your life too!

“How to Overcome Fear and Anxiety!! We’ve all been there where we come to a point in our lives where we have a hard decision to make. How much is your decision based on fear? Just think if you were able to take fear out of that equation. Just think what your life would look like if you didn’t have fear standing in your way! Your choices would be based off of what you want out of life and fear wouldn’t be holding you back! No regrets, no what if’s, and no should of’s. That is what this book is all about.
