Afraid of All the Things
- Tornadoes, Cancer, Adoption, and Other Stuff You Need the Gospel For
- By: Scarlet Hiltibidal
- Narrated by: Scarlet Hiltibidal
- Length: 5 hrs and 19 mins
Growing up in the green room of SNL, being born to a fire-eater and adopted by a SWAT cop, having internal organs explode, and adopting a deaf girl from China, Scarlet Hiltibidal has been given some strange life experiences - and lived in fear through most of them. But life changed for Scarlet when she learned to hold the gospel up to her fears and realized that though she can't fix herself or protect herself, Jesus walked into this broken, sad, scary place to rescue, love, and cast out her - and your - fear.
I will listen again and again!

I loved this book. I laughed and cried. I want to get the hard-copy too so I can read it again with a highlighter - it is filled with verses and quotes I LOVED. I feel like Scarlet and I have so much in common from anxiety to striving for perfection and God’s love...and kind of being hot messes - and our husbands would be kindred spirits too with their passion for God (to where they sometimes cry when they pray) and patient kindness toward us as their wives and love for dragon stories. I heard Scarlet interviewed on a podcast (20,000 Reasons) and I knew I wanted to read her book ASAP. She tells funny stories from her life and relates them to the gospel and Scripture in a therapeutic way that feeds my soul. I recommend this book for moms, worn out Christians and any creative type people with hyper-active imaginations and big feelings. The most moving part of the book was the story of Joy that they adopted..:it just left me saying, “Wow.”
