Book Review: “Brave Enough” by Nicole Eunice

I read “Brave Enough” by Nicole Eunice awhile back, and never got a chance to writing a review about it. Looking back, I think it’s either because I had just finished up another incredible book and was still holding onto that or because I just had so many thoughts on this one, that I didn’t quite know how to process it all.

Eunice gets real in “Brave Enough,” and she addresses the fact that we’re all scared. But, what would it look like if we weren’t living with that fear constantly? She addresses so many issues that I was really struggling with in that moment (and still often do). Eunice addresses loneliness, our work ethic, practicing worship and being fully present. The biggest takeaways for me were the sections about grace and just falling into God, because these are His battles, not ours. Other sections include how to deal with conflict, anger and other struggles we face in life.

This is probably one of the most practical books I’ve ever read, in the sense that it focuses on the everyday struggles we have. Sometimes I read books and think, ‘that was good, but I’ll probably save these lessons for later on’ or ‘I remember how I felt dealing with this; these are good reminders.’ It was rare to find a book with issues I was facing with right then. Maybe that was another reason I didn’t want to talk about it – it was too real.

“Brave Enough” made me stronger in my walk with Christ. It made me stop and think about the things I needed to work on and the things I needed to let go of. Honestly, it pushed me to stop holding back and to get out there. To make a change. I think this will be that encouragement you’re looking for to make a change and to live life a little differently.

That’s all for now,

Shelby
