#87: Unafraid by Gracie Malone (US/CDN #Giveaway)

A 365-day devotional that will encourage and help readers overcome the fear that consumes, disturbs, and paralyzes them.

To live without fear is one of the most challenging goals you can make in your life. Fear lurks in the deep recesses of the human heart and surprises even the most mature Christian. 

There are over 400 instances in the Bible of God telling His children to not be afraid. If repetition of a matter has anything to do with importance, God decided this was a big one. But rather than being a command or admonition, the tone spoken in turn by God, angels, and disciples is compelling and encouraging, like a parent comforting a fearful child. 

In UNAFRAID, Gracie Malone brings light, a touch of humor, stories, quotes, prayers, and encouragement to everyone who is fighting to trust in the only One who can take their fear away.

REVIEW:
Love it!
I love a good devotional. One that makes me stop and think about my own actions in my daily life. One that has me asking myself if there is something I could change for the better. I love the way this book does that to me.
Not like other devotionals I have read, this one has a bible snippet at the beginning, a section of words to make you comprehend the teaching and look into yourself, then another bible passage to seal the devotion. It's like you're being walked through each bible teaching, and I like that. It helps you understand the bible, and yourself, better. 
Now this book is a way to get past your fears, understand them and work through them. For me, being agoraphobic, this book will help me move past that initial anxiety of being in large groups. I look forward to the lessons I will learn that will help me move past it. So if you are like me, or if you have other fears, this devotional is for you. Our fears can often hold us back, and this book will show you how to keep moving on, despite our fears.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
