My new book, On the Other Side of Fear: How I Found Peace, was released in August of 2016. Within its pages I tell the story of how God taught me to let go of fear, cling to him, and embrace the peace that surpasses all understanding.
I think all women struggle with fear on some level. We lose that carefree part of our spirit as we realize how precious and fragile life can be. With her relatable, humorous, and warm writing style, Hallie Lord manages to encourage, challenge and, most importantly, make you feel normal. Pick this book up today and get ready for a fun ride. You will find yourself nodding your head, laughing out loud and breathing a big sigh of relief that it’s all going to be okay. – Melanie Shankle, NY Times Bestselling author of Nobody’s Cuter Than You
Hallie Lord is a gifted and graceful writer whose wisdom is hard-won – and all the more compelling as a result. For women struggling to replace fear with faith, this intimate, funny and poignant account of Hallie’s own struggle offers a roadmap toward peace, from an author who feels like a friend. – Colleen Carroll Campbell, journalist, former presidential speechwriter and author of My Sisters the Saints: A Spiritual Memoir and The New Faithful: Why Young Adults Are Embracing Christian Orthodoxy
The deeply personal stories Hallie Lord shares are humorous, fun, and delightful—yet packed with jaw-dropping insights. It is not an exaggeration to say that this book will change your life. — Jennifer Fulwiler, SiriusXM radio host and bestselling author of Something Other than God
Jesus said “Be Not Afraid.” Saint John Paul II said “Be Not Afraid.” But I’m afraid to say…I still have lots of fears in life. After reading this book, Hallie Lord will be the third voice in my head reminding me to “Be Not Afraid” and to trust in God. Thanks Jesus, JPII, and Hallie! —Lino Rulli, Host, “The Catholic Guy” on SiriusXM Satellite Radio
Hallie Lord goes toe-to-toe with fear and provides a witty and fearless response in the face of such challenges today. On the Other Side of Fear: How I Found Peace is a remarkably truthful book that not only encourages us but also illuminates the sources behind many fears today in order to root them out and live fearlessly in and with Christ. —Leah Darrow, author of Decent Exposure
In a culture awash (and adrift) in marginally helpful self-help books, Hallie Lord truly has launched into the deep with this worthy book. It brims with practical advice and gracious personal encouragement for all who (like all of us) struggle at times with fear and discouragement. — Patrick Madrid, radio host
“Don’t be afraid. Just have faith” (Luke 8:50). When we hear these words of Jesus, we may well reply, “Yes, Lord–but how?” In this wise and witty book, Hallie Lord offers penetrating, practical insights from years of struggle with fear in its various forms. In the end, her personal victories over anxiety powerfully illustrate the biblical truth that “there is no fear in love” (1 John 4:18). —Paul Thigpen, author of Manual for Spiritual Warfare
The Bible is filled with encouragement to not be afraid. It’s the first command of every angel and the first word spoken by Jesus on Easter. Yet how hard it is! In this wonderfully uplifting book, Hallie Lord shows us how to tap into the strong confidence of faith to conquer our daily concerns. She doesn’t ignore fear, which can never be banished, but confronts it and reveals how we can loosen its grip. Vulnerable, poignant, and inspiring, this is the book you need if you’ve ever been worried or unsure about life. —Brandon Vogt, author of RETURN: How to Draw Your Child Back to the Church
Spice Up Your Marriage will take you on a 28-day adventure that is guaranteed to kick things up a notch in the bedroom (kitchen, car, and/or laundry room) and leave you overwhelmed with passion for your spouse.
Are you a woman who struggles with feelings of bashfulness? Has your marriage fallen into a sexual rut? Maybe you’re simply looking to infuse your marriage with a little extra fun and excitement.
This eBook is for all of you.
Each day offers three options — mild, medium, and hot — so that you can tailor your journey to better meet your needs and stay within your comfort zone. The multiple choices will also allow you to use this book countless times without ever repeating the exact same journey.
Every assignment was created with the goal of deepening the sexual-love aspect of your relationship so you won’t find suggestions that demean or objectify. Contrary to what popular culture may assert, the spiciest relationships are the ones that cultivate trust, selflessness, and respect.
While this 50 page eBook was written with women in mind, with a few minor tweaks, there’s no reason a husband couldn’t take the lead. In fact, it’s highly encouraged!
Are you ready? Let’s get started…
And how do the perils and pitfalls of modern society impact that vision?
Here is a fresh look at life from the perspective of ten Catholic women who live in the spotlight of the Internet — ten bloggers who keep it real every day with their personal posts relating their triumphs, trials, and temptations for all to see.
In the same way, nothing is off limits in Style, Sex, & Substance. Each of these women brings a refreshingly open and humorous perspective to growing in faith and improving their relationship with Christ.
Enjoy real stories, real struggles, and best of all, real faith and trust that God will bring out the best in all circumstances — whether in the family room, the bedroom, or at work.
“And they lived happily ever after.” Only in fairy tales, you say. But there is life after the honeymoon-messy, challenging, happily-married life. That’s the great promise of Catholic marriage, and if you’re married or considering marriage the joy is there for you, too.
Many Catholics today share the culture’s unease-fear of divorce, the prevalence of cohabitation, the wounds of past relationships all conspire to make til-death-do-us-part seem like a risky proposition. But the authors of Catholic and Married all agree, marriage is the adventure of a lifetime.
In these sometimes funny, tell-it-like-it-is chapters, this diverse group of men and women offer you their insights and advice on:
Children – the gift that keeps on giving
Marrying young – objections and object lessons
Contraception – an honest discussion on a touchy subject
Parenting skills – it’s not rocket science (it just feels like it sometimes)
And much more!
These stories will encourage you to lean into love. Hold nothing back. And experience the Catholic marriage God intended for you.
