I received this book from Netgalley for free in exchange for my honest review which was not required to be positive.

official blurb
Dear friends,
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty tired of the struggle. You know which one I mean–fear, loneliness, not knowing who I am or what I’m meant to do. . . . Sound familiar? I struggled with insecurity, comparison, and isolation for too many years, from thigh gaps to eyebrows to the lifestyles I felt I had to live up to. I was so afraid of being “found out,” that everyone in my life would somehow figure out that I was fearful and small and that I struggled to make my faith a reality and to be secure in who I am. It took a major perspective shift from staring at comments on a screen to really digging into the pages of my Bible to see what God actually says about overcoming fear. Setting aside the fear, anxiety, and comparison to become the joy-filled person God created you to be is exactly what God is inviting you into. To really be seen and known. To be an agent of change by choosing compassion, connection, and acceptance for everyone you come in contact with. Inside this book are ways to find your power, passion, and purpose–and reach for your dreams. Plus, there are places to jot down notes, fun lists, practical ways to make changes, and thoughts on how living fearless can change everything. Are you tired of the awful comparison game? Are you exhausted from trying to keep up, from feeling small and afraid that people will find the real you and be disappointed? There is so much more for you. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what your fears are, freedom is available to you. It’s just a matter of saying yes. You in? Hope you’ll join me on this wild adventure as we learn to Live Fearless together. Love,
Sadie

my blurb!
A look at the life of the girl you might recognize from Duck Dynasty, the fear she lived in, and how she daily tries to overcome it.

what i liked
Sadie is very likable.  You don’t read the book and think about how far out of touch she is with being a human.
She lived in a lot of fear – I mean it blew my mind.  And it was amazing to me that she was willing to share those struggles so readily with her readers!
The chapter’s end with reflections to help you progress in your own struggle(s) with fear!  It wasn’t crazy cheesy or anything like that- so big pro there!
Definitely the word I would use to describe this book the most is genuine.  Sadie comes across super genuine and it makes you realize how little you knew her when watching the “reality” show she was on!
This girl is so in love with God. It is amazing to read about and is really inspiring to me as a reader!

what i didn't like
Very quickly into this book I realized that I was not the target audience.  I don’t think I realized that people did live in this high level of fear and anxiety. It made me almost feel better about my issues with spiders and heights!  Not a knock on fearful people or the book- it just didn’t make me want to fly through reading it.
