"Do you sometimes feel that life’s current circumstances, combined with the uncertainty of the future, can threaten to knock the joy right out of your heart and cause panic to saturate your soul? Katy McCown has unearthed the answer to this distressing condition and has crafted a practical resource to help us learn to settle our souls. She Smiles without Fear takes an in-depth dive into Scripture while also providing engaging anecdotes from her own journey with Jesus. This useful tool will not only empower you to smile confidently at the future, it will enable you to experience God’s peace in the present."
-- Karen Ehman, New York Times-bestselling author
"She Smiles without Fear invites women to rethink the stereotype of the Proverbs 31 woman being poised, planned, and perfect. Katy helped me learn through this study to exhale, shifting from "doing" to "being" with Jesus. I discovered that so much of my fear of the future is a misplaced perspective of where I look for my future. This book was my much-needed reset button that challenged me to refocus my gaze off my fears and onto the One who holds my future."
-- Lisa Allen, executive director at Proverbs 31 Ministries
"At Proverbs 31 Ministries, we've spent decades helping women see that the Proverbs 31 woman is not a standard of perfection or an object of comparison for us. It wasn't her activity that mattered the most—but rather her identity. A Proverbs 31 woman is, at her core, someone who seeks the Lord in everything she does and trusts Him wholeheartedly with her life. I love that Katy hones in on one key aspect of the Proverbs 31 woman that many women struggle with: fear of the future. With Katy’s help, women will walk away from this five-week study hopeful and understanding that while we may feel afraid, we don’t have to live in fear. I can’t think of a better resource for right now!"
-- Lysa TerKeurst, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"The Proverbs 31 woman is one of the most mysterious women in the Bible to us modern-day women. I love that Katy McCown is making her less mysterious through this fantastic Bible study. Katy is so wise and funny, and she helps women connect to the Word in a powerful way!"
-- Nicki Koziarz, bestselling author, speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries
"Katy McCown speaks to my heart every time I spend time with her. This book is no different. I was drawn in by the stories and given a secure footing to move forward by the truth she shares. If you struggle with fear and worry (don’t we all?), you need the words on these pages."
