Faith Over Fear
Episode 126: Building a Faith that Stands P. 2
With Jennifer Slattery and Carol McCracken

Jesus meant it when He promised to give us a life beyond our expectations, and He’s given us numerous tools in Scripture to help us experience the soul deep peace and freedom we crave. Although our battle against anxiety and fear is a journey that requires diligence, intentionality, and perseverance, we aren’t walking this road to freedom alone. He stays with us and will lead us to more secure and courageous footing. In this episode, Jennifer Slattery and Wholly Loved Ministries team member Carol McCracken continue the conversation Jennifer began in the previous episode, looking at additional ways we can fight our fears and increase our faith.
