“Fear is tricky; it wears many disguises. It can sound compassionate and practical, convincing us that our motives are pure, while all the time that devil-rascal is pushing us deeper into the shadows of doubt, apathy, and confusion.”
“I couldn’t imagine how delicious freedom would be, how wide the door would open, or how far around the globe it would take me. I didn’t know . . . God’s expansive heart.”
Those are quotes from Patsy’s newest book, You Are More Than You Know. I highly recommend reading it especially….
If you’ve ever struggled with:
E. All of the Above
(Yes, I answered E….I’ll blog about that someday…maybe)
Or if you have ever found yourself in a purpose-less season of life (Yup, been there too!),
You NEED to read this book. I’ll include an Amazon link at the bottom. Seriously, order it today or download it to your reading device.
Patsy has a way with words unlike any other. She is relatable, witty, wise, wonderfully transparent, and to this day continues to uncover hidden gifts and talents within her that she never knew existed…often surprising her own self. A self-proclaimed “cracked pot” as she often refers to herself as is becoming more than she ever knew. And she is impassioned with helping others discover the “more” in them.
After overcoming a debilitating bout of fear decades ago, this recovering agoraphobic discovered that she had a knack for writing and story-telling and has since authored numerous best-selling books, traveled the world and become a highly sought-after, well-respected, deeply-loved speaker and communicator whose messages resonate with diverse audiences and a wide span of generations, young and old.
Just a few short years ago, Patsy trepidatiously accepted an invitation from a friend to attend a local art class and surprisingly unearthed yet another way to express herself – as a painter! Her whimsical paintings now adorn the walls of her home and several of her masterpieces have even been purchased by art-lovers across the country. This woman is uncovering MORE and MORE about herself than she could have ever imagined. And it is contagious!
In her new book, You Are More Than You Know, Patsy invites us in and shares stories about her journey to recovery from fear and includes the paths that led her to discovering more of who she was created to be. She also provides a wealth of encouragement and closes each chapter with insightful and thought-provoking, more-uncovering questions.
Read this book and you will be inspired to embark upon your own adventure of discovering the “more” inside of you that is just waiting to be unveiled.
Her book has enlightened me and encouraged me in countless ways. Patsy has opened my eyes and heart to a whole new world of “more” that is filled with possibilities and opportunities. I am learning to let go of my fear and slowly crawl out of my comfort zone….ohhh, but it’s so comfy in there……but wait, there’s more!….just outside of that safe, cushiony and cozy place.
One cannot read this book and remain on the same trajectory. Expect an inspirational perspective shift and a refreshing wind to blow through your sails. How are you “more”?
