I have read and review many of Shelley Hitz's books, but I have enjoyed "A Life of Faith:  21 Days to Overcoming Fear and Doubt" the most. 

Too often, Christians hide behind the veneer of "it's all good" and "too blessed to be depressed".  While it is true that as God's children we are very blessed - in spite of our problems - glossing over them is not leading an authentic life. Why should others be drawn to Christ if we aren't truthful as His representatives?

In this book, Shelley speaks from her own experiences and has included other's trials as well.  I was happily surprised that Cliff Ball, another of my favorite authors, was included.

She leads us step by step through prayers and Bible verses to overcome our doubts and fears, while strengthening our walk with the Savior.  None of this is "magical" - we still have trials and testings, but she leads us to faith to not only endure our circumstances, but to overcome our fears as well.  I strongly recommend this book.  Although I received it as an ARC, this in no way has influenced my review.
