Happy Birthday to Brave Enough–and a present for you!


Hey friends, Brave-Enough-BookYippee! Today Brave Enough is officially born, available wherever books are sold!

She’s Got Issues was special because she was my firstborn book. I was as nervous as a new parent, wondering if I could do this whole author thing right. But through grace and time and so much encouragement from you people, you wonderful readers, I realized that writing is a gift and one that I want to keep sharing as long as God keeps giving me a message to share.

So when the concept of Brave Enough was sparked (you can hear that story later this week), I wasn’t overly enthusiastic–more so, I was humbled by the reality that God would call me again to the challenging, wonderful, demanding, amazing process of writing again.

But this time it would be twins.

This time we would put Brave Enough AND the Brave Enough Bible Study together, and as any momma of twins will tell you–delivering and raising two babies at once is an altogether different experience.

Brave-Enough-DVD-ImageThe Brave Enough DVD was an “in-house” experience, meaning that the amazing folks at Tyndale set me free to create, plan and execute the entire series with my own people here in Richmond.

Which also means that the star of the show was one of my best friend’s daughters who ALSO happens to be celebrating her birthday today. Oh, is God good!!

It also means that my favorite creative, AJ, came up with the narrative of Brave Enough, hand-crafted the arrow that Ella carries in the video, and photographed that same arrow for the book cover. He’s going to tell the story behind the arrow later this week as well.


So. Here we are. Here’s where you come in.

Friends, this book feels important to me because it’s the nitty gritty stuff of being woman changed by Christ. It feels important because it’s a message I think God has for every one of us about what it really means to live out the life He’s given us with freedom, confidence, and courage.

So I have a present for you! If you order the book, audiobook or DVD this weekend, (it’s only $15 on Amazon today!) we’ve got a specially-created download that we want to send you on Monday. It’ll be a hand-lettered, printable reminder that you can also use as a lockscreen on your phone. I don’t know about you, but I look at my phone hundreds of times in a day–so a lockscreen is EXACTLY where I needed to be reminded of what it means to be Brave Enough for today.

And that’s not all! If you order the DVD this weekend, one of you will be picked for a Skype call with me and your group this fall. It’ll be as close as I can get to being present with you group, hearing your hearts and your stories. I’ll even make the brownies and hold them up to the screen. 🙂

Here’s what you need to do to get the exclusive download on Monday:

1. go pick up or order the book today or tomorrow!

2. send us a screenshot of your order or receipt to info@takeheartministry.com

3. On Monday, we’ll send you instructions for your free download.

That’s it! This week will be full of back stories and insights into the Brave Enough life, but for today, GO GET IT!

    Hello Nicole.
    Brave Enough set a fire in my spirit and threw some things in motion that I was not quite ready for but, God does that sometimes… lets you read something that just is so amazing and touched by him.
    Thank you for being Brave Enough to write this book with Gods grace and mercy. I have enjoyed the video bible study on Right Now media and since have purchased the book. I am reading it with my daughter and we will go back through the bible study.
    I have this desire in my heart to go on a mission trip to Haiti and had a million excuses why I couldn’t go, I told myself that I was needed here, this wouldn’t get done without me, I needed to be here just in case someone might possibly need something from me… yes I am a control freak… yes I have started “She Has Issues”.
    I also doubted that this desire in my heart was of God. I told my friend that I was waiting on God, I wanted my trip to be a blessing to others, not a lift Tammy up. I think that I was just plain scared that He would ACTUALLY send me.
    After doing your bible study and praying I have found myself Brave Enough to go, God has confirmed in my heart that I am supposed to go. He is helping me and guiding me.
    Just Thank you for writing this book. I am totally blessed by it.

    Nicole, we are a small group and would like to start the Brave Enough bible study. The dilemma is: what do we need? Just the books? The DVD and the book? Is there a study book? Can you please guide us to what we need to make it a good experience?

    Thank you
