As many of you know I am blessed with being a part of a book launch team for the book "Brave Moms, Brave Kids" by Lee Nienhuis.

As I have been reading, I have been sharing some of the insights and things I have learned or found helpful along the way.

But I realized that I haven't mentioned much about the word BRAVE.  I did it in all caps because each letter represents an action to delve deeper. 

I do need to say that the book has a way of connecting with God and growing deeper in your faith.  So if you are looking for a great book that helps you grow and show your faith so that your so that your kids can follow in your foot steps, it is a great book to add to your reading list.

The book talks about BRAVE, raising heroes, and allowing us to face our fears.  Helping to lead this next generation to know and follow God as well. 

Well, what does BRAVE mean?

B: Believe God
R: Reflect
A: Ask Forgiveness
V: Vigilantly Pray
E: Equip Them

The first four letters how us as moms work through this plan, and the last letter helps us prepare our kids.

We face daily battles and so do our kids.  How do we prepare ourselves and them for those battles?  Walking through each of the letters, leading us to be brave, allows us put on our suit of armor so we can prepare.  It helps us get our kids ready.

I have been looking to grow more spiritually and this book is helping me.  It goes beyond and deeper, building connections of understanding scripture, realizing the fears we have and why, changing the perspectives I have had on some things.

As I go forward in the book, working through each letter of the word BRAVE, I will share more about my findings.

I hope to bring you along on this journey with me.  Let you have an inside to the book and see if it would be a good fit for your reading list.  The book doesn't come out until February 1st, but you can pre-order it now and get some awesome freebies too.  I use some of the freebies in my daily quiet time.  I use the bookmarks with a focus on one letter at a time and I use the My Child Be Brave card to pray over my kids. 

There are many things you can take away from the book while reading and carry it through your day, each day.
