Battle Ready: Train Your Mind to Conquer Challenges, Defeat Doubt, and Live Victoriously by Kelly Balarie has a publication date of July 3rd, 2018 by Baker Books. We don’t know what’s coming tomorrow, and usually we live unprepared, just going through the motions of life and practicing a reactive rather than proactive faith. This means that when trouble inevitably comes, we find ourselves mired in disbelief, uncertainty, and doubt rather than ready to endure and triumph over trials. Who wants to live that way? In discouragement, fear, and defeat?
Battle Ready prepares a woman’s mind, in advance, for the troubles, opportunities, and invitations of tomorrow, allowing her to build a deep character of determination, resiliency, and faith. Author Kelly Balarie arms readers with 12 life-altering, love-spreading mindsets that build confidence, grow faith, and increase a spirit of joy. Includes a 12-week study guide perfect for individual or group study.
About the author: Kelly Balarie is a passionate national speaker who has spent nearly ten years leading groups of women in spiritual growth, marriage building, and general Bible studies across the nation. She has lived her subject matter. Her faith was built as she battled through a debilitating eating disorder, depression, multiple sclerosis testing and concerns, company failures, family deaths, job losses, and times without income or money. Throughout difficult circumstances, Kelly has looked past the pain to uncover the beauty of God’s always-developing purposes for her life. Her greatest desire is to share this treasured beauty with other women who need a fresh drink of God’s grace and restoration. Kelly is a featured blogger at Crosswalk.com and iBelieve.com. Her work has been featured on Relevant, (in)courage.me and was also the cover story on Today’s Christian Woman. She lives with her husband and two toddlers near the sun-soaked shores of the East Coast.
