Podcast Episode 006: Fear Holding You Back? Here's How to Conquer It

Feb 22, 2021

"If I asked you, 'Do you have fear?' your first instinct may be to say 'no.' However, if we look at some of your day to day activities, we may see behaviors that are symptomatic of underlying fears.​

In order to achieve God’s plans for our lives, we have to acknowledge we have fear, understand the root cause of those fears, and take actions to overcome them.​"

My guest today, Christy Demetrakis, shares the A.R.T. of conquering fear.
