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 Susies 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 fears 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.

"Dont pick up Unafraid if youre looking for a how-to manual. Instead, its an engrossing and epic true story that at once puts you at ease and challenges you to live more freely. Its unlike any Christian book Ive ever read. It was so crazy good that I got to the end and wished there were more."
Hayley Morgan, writer of thetinytwig.com
"I am a Susie Davis fan! Susie speaks to my soul. She draws me from the shore of safety into the deeper waters of the Spirit. Unafraid will beckon you to begin with abandon a new journey with God. Susies soul is the inkwell, her heart is the quill, and her words are the invitation: fear not for the Lord is with you."

"When we bow to the god of fear, we think we will be safe, but thats a lie. Our lives diminish as fear gains more ground. Having witnessed her beloved teachers murder, Susie Davis understands that bad things happen. Thats what makes her journey from paralyzing fear to trusting faith so compelling. I cant wait to give Unafraid to some of my clients."
Leslie Vernick, licensed counselor, relationship coach, speaker, and author of The Emotionally Destructive Marriage
