How do you conquer fear?
This was a question that I asked for years.
Plagued with anxiety and worry, I struggled to find a solution that would destroy fear in my life once and for all.
More often than not, my attempts to get rid of fear ended up just treating the symptoms, rather than dealing with the roots.
However, the longer I searched for an answer the more I began to realize that dealing with fear is an ongoing battle.
I needed to come up with a Battle Plan.
As part of my plan, I began to seek God, control my thoughts, worship and surround myself with people who would pray with me.
These key actions began to produce the fruit of peace I was looking for.
Today I want to share some amazing resources I’ve found that support these key actions.

One of the best books I’ve ever read on overcoming fear is Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer.

Since all fear starts in our minds, this book had to be on the list of best resources!
