"Fear not–hard to do. Jo Kadelecek’s book is a tender tribute to human hold-back. By opening wide the windows of her heart, she urges us out of our own prisons and into the freedom that faith promises."
–Elisa Morgan, President and CEO of MOPS International
"I thank God for writers like Jo Kadlecek. By telling the messy truth about her own struggle with fear she gave me courage to do the same. And this is just one of the many gifts her book has to give. So go ahead–jump in the deep end. You’ll find every graceful word of Jo’s to be a life preserver and a helping hand."
–Charlie Peacock, musician, author of At the Crossroads
"It is wonderfully ironic that a book about fear should be this brave, and that this kind of unflinching–even brutal–honesty should produce such a healing, life-giving work. Whatever fears may bind us, Jo Kadlecek has given us a beautiful reminder (or perhaps a revelation) that the Truth really can set us free."
–Carolyn Arends, recording artist, author of Living the Questions
"A beautifully honest treasure map. Jo Kadlecek invites us on the journey from fear, to faith, to love."
–Kelly Monroe, ed. Finding God at Harvard, founder and director of the Veritas Forum
"Jo’s stories combine lofty quotes with gritty, ordinary moments to urge you to keep working through, moving forward, and overcoming when it would be easier to sit it out."
–Jan Johnson, author of When the Soul Listens and Enjoying the Presence of God
"Jo Kadlecek is a gutsy lady! And a wise one. She has intricately spelled out her fear-of-living–creating, in her articulate telling, a microcosm of the human condition. Through this comes, finally, the insight she needs. And it fits us…it truly does."
–Judith Deem DuPree, author of Going Home and I Sing America, and founder of AD LIB
"Jo’s voice is the voice of a friend. She writes with the intimacy of conversation, such as you’d delight to share in over coffee or tea. Her goal: that we might all emerge from the reading a little more secure because of faith, despite life’s challenges and uncertainties."
–Denise Williamson, author of The Dark Sun Rises
