Day 6 of 100 Days to Brave

Welcome back for Day 6 of our 100 Days To Brave! 

Hopefully during the last 5ish days you’ve spent time reading the first section (Brave Enough To Start).

And today starts the second section: Brave Enough To Be Me.

I’m getting a bit nervous about how God is teaching me VERY HANDS-ON to walk through my fears. Last week, Leland went to the ER for stitches. 

This week (so far): Leland shattered the window to the back porch, Everett had a nocturnal asthma attack (almost had to call 911) and last night, I pushed myself out of my social comfort zone — more about that in today’s video. 

I guess when you pray for bravery, God will line up some field training.

The comments you’ve shared on the blog have been the highlight of my week. Please keep it up! I have learned so much about you and it connects us all.

You are so special to me girl – and as you will learn this week, you are incredibly unique. I am thankful you are choosing to spend time with me in our #LiveSlowBibleStudy. 


Day 6 of 100 Days To Brave

As you heard in my video, I need to challenge myself this week (and um, forever) to be brave enough to be who I am as a mom and wife.

That sounds so simple, yet when I am in the trenches, I fear judgement or total social dork-ness. Seems too silly to be legit, but it is.

And I know the enemy enjoys teasing me with that anxiety. I will choose brave!

Are you brave enough to be you? What lies are you telling yourself?

I hope you free yourself from that bondage this week. God makes no mistakes.

Be brave this week, ladies. Mostly (selfishly) because watching you be brave helps me be brave (and we are in this together)!

See you guys in the comments!

    1. Brave enough to be me? WOW! So I’m currently going through a Step Study program through Celebrate Recovery at my church. The goal is to ‘overcome’ our hurts, hang-ups & habits – the bad ones. 😉 And I shared this with them today – I feel like my issues are part of my identity. And then I get scared because I start to wonder who I am without those labels? And how do I even begin to live my life without those labels??

      I shared this week that I ‘overcame’ my struggle with body image issues. And because of that, it’s been weird to look in the mirror this week & not want to pick out every little flaw. It’s like, now what do I say to myself??

      Soooo…for me brave enough to be me, is like brave enough to be the me God intended me to be!!!!!

      1. Wow, this really spoke to me. If we’ve allowed our issues to BE our identity…how much more scary can taking them off will be? We’d be naked and exposed. We’d have to relearn ourselves all over again. The WONDERFUL thing Jenn is that God is the one to define you. Taking off the mask and hiding behind the issues you told yourself made you you… there in lies the Jenn God wants the world to know. I am so thankful you for to walk this healing journey bc it will help so many (including me)

    2. Without digging too deep into the past…I definitely have, and still do struggle to bravely live my authentic self. ( I’m working on it though!) I think everyday that passes as of recent, I’m getting stronger, more confident, and pouring out more love into the world which is helping the real Robyn shine through. Issues of self doubt, self worth and lack of self esteem have far too long been ugly lies that I’ve told myself. Since I’ve started to build my relationship with God, those issues have begun to beautify and blossom into acceptance, and gratitude.

      1. For what it’s worth, I’ve always thought you were authentic. Always. You see to have a bright spirit about you since letting God be in control of your life. I think I have to re-give Him my life every day because I too often sneak back in the driver’s seat. Nothing wrong with surrendering over and over and over…especially those feelings of insecurity!

    3. I have had some very difficult days with my job the last few weeks. I have taken a new position that is probing to be quite the challenge. This book, these post, this group helps me tremendously. I can’t muster words to say right now as I am mentally exhausted but if you think about it can you add me to your prayers. Praying feels all I have right now as I am feeling pretty lost. Many thanks.

      1. ugh work woes are the worst. I will def pray for you today Cheryl. Right now in fact (if you can look past the weirdness of praying through a blog post..) "God, please be near your girl Cheryl. You know the heaviness on her heart and mind even without her pouring them out to you. I ask that you reassure her that you are aware of her angst. Let her know with gentle nudges that you are near and can take her anxiety and worries. We were created to surrender those suffocating feelings. The work load may not decrease but our knowledge/wisdom/skills can increase because of the power you give us. Thank you for answering this God. You’re the best. Amen"

    4. As I’m sure others do, I struggle with anxiety. For the most part I’m able to maintain control through prayer, breathing, and awesome support system via my husband. But it wasn’t always like this.

      Since I can remember, I’ve always been a perfectionist in EVERY aspect of my life. In school, in dance class, even down to my ballet bun needing to be exactly centered or I would rip the pins out and start all over again. I later learned anxiety was the real root of the problems. It got better. With the help of God, His Word and prayer, I was able to get to a good place.

      Tonight was a bad night. Multitude of factors, mixed with humid shower hair sent me down the attack path. Though I got through it with my hubby at my side, it reminded me that I am not perfect. I will never be perfect. And what a joy and RELIEF it is to know that we have a God who IS perfect and loves unconditionally.

      So here’s to being brave when Satan is knocking at your door. Here’s to joyfully shouting "Not today, Satan!" as we turn to God in our darkest moments. And thank you for reading this. I hope that sharing will help someone struggling with the same issue.

      1. "Not today Satan!" is right! I wanted to respond with "NOT EVER SATAN" but let’s be honest… I am only strong enough to combat the enemy one minute at a time. And every time I choose God… it defeats the enemy’s plan. I am so glad to hear you were able to work through that anxiety. The expectations we put on ourselves is tough. xoxo
