Being reminded on multiple fronts that life and decisions shouldn’t be made out of fear.
“Fear is at the root of so many of the barriers that women face. Fear of not being liked. Fear of making the wrong choice. Fear of drawing negative attention. Fear of overreaching. Fear of being judged. Fear of failure. And the holy trinity of fear: the fear of being a bad mother/wife/daughter.”
—Lean In, by Sheryl Sandberg
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
— 2 Timothy 1:7
