As a parent, do you struggle with trusting God’s will for your life and for those you love? Are you tired and afraid? In Be Brave in the Scared, Catholic writer Mary Lenaburg shares how the overwhelming demands of caring for her severely disabled daughter ultimately taught her—and can teach you—that trusting in God and accepting his will can lead to profound joy, no matter what challenges you face. Be Brave in the Scared is an uplifting account of human frailty (and stubbornness) surrendered to faith. Lenaburg tells the heart-rending story of how caring for her severely disabled daughter affected her self-image, marriage, family life, and faith. Although she initially struggled to accept God’s will and her own limitations, Lenaburg ultimately learned how to trust God. She found in that trust inexplicable joy, even during the most difficult days of her life. She writes boldly and authentically about challenges we all encounter, such as trials with control, blame, exhaustion, fear, and acceptance. Each chapter concludes with an invitation to write and a place for readers to express their thoughts and feelings. Lenaburg’s extraordinary story affirms that God’s redeeming love never fails and that he is there to help us through all of the challenges we encounter.

All the stories died that morning ... until we found the one we’d always known. When nine-year-old Rose is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, Natalie must use her imagination to keep her daughter alive. They begin dreaming about and seeing a man in a brown suit who feels hauntingly familiar, a man who has something for them. Through the magic of storytelling, Natalie and Rose are transported to the Atlantic Ocean in 1943, to a lifeboat, where an ancestor survived for fifty days before being rescued. Poignant, beautifully written and tenderly told, How To Be Brave weaves together the contemporary story of a mother battling to save her child’s life with an extraordinary true account of bravery and a fight for survival in the Second World War. A simply unforgettable debut that celebrates the power of words, the redemptive energy of a mother’s love ... and what it really means to be brave. 'It’s a gentle book, full of emotion and it’s similar in tone to The Book Thief, a book that Rose reads with a torch under the bedclothes.’ The Irish Times ’Moving, engrossing and richly drawn, this is storytelling in its purest form ... mesmerising’ Amanda Jennings ‘An amazing story of hope and survival ... a love letter to the power of books and stories’ Nick Quantrill ‘Two family stories of loss and redemption intertwine in a painfully beautiful narrative. This book grabbed me right around my heart and didn’t let go’ Cassandra Parkin ‘Louise Beech is a natural born storyteller and this is a wonderful story’ Russ Litten ‘Beautifully written, intelligent and moving, this book will stay with you long after you reach the end’ Ruth Dugdall

If you've ever wanted to go somewhere completely unknown to you, or just want to experience it through someone else's eyes, I Never Intended to Be Brave will take you there.
