Author, speaker, and TV host Ann White has released a new book to inspire and guide readers to embrace a life of courage and grace.
In 7 Steps to Courage, White shares the story of how she made the courageous choice to face her inner struggles, make fearless choices, and move from frozen to freedom.
A few short years ago, White appeared to have a perfect life. She was in a high-profile marriage, had a beautiful family, and served in leadership at her church. However, behind closed doors, White’s personal life was falling apart. She knew if she wanted change, if she wanted to live the life God had planned for her, she had to make one courageous choice. She had to step out in faith, face her fears, and embrace the courage to change her life.
“My story is not so unique,” shared White in an announcement about her new book. “Many people, especially people of faith, often work tirelessly to don a perfect façade; all the while, their lives are heading down a path that leads to a cliff dive. I had carefully crafted my walls of protection and isolated myself to a point where I felt completely alone. I was at a breaking point and had to reach out and ask for help. Facing fear is never easy, but there are proven methods that make it possible.”
Published through Creative Enterprises Studios, 7 Steps to Courage provides readers with actionable steps to make courageous choices and replace fear with faith. Throughout the book, White weaves the transparent account of her personal journey – a journey of courage that ultimately led her to address toxic relationships and life patterns by embracing the freedom found in God’s grace. White shares with transparency and authenticity the insights and exercises she learned that allowed her to overcome the pain of the past and adopt a new perspective for the future.
Each of the seven steps outlined in White’s book represents a letter in the word “courage” – commit to change, overcome obstacles, uncover your true self, replace worldly lies with spiritual truth, accept the things you cannot change, grasp God’s love for you, and embrace a life of grace.
“My prayer is readers will begin to apply the 7 Steps to Courage and learn the natural progression of how to make healthy choices,” stated White. “I pray it will not take them as long as it took me.”
