Find the hope and encouragement you need to overcome anxiety and fear and take the next small step to a better life. Join popular blogger, viral TED Talk speaker, and founder of The World Needs More Love Letters, Hannah Brencher, as she shares personal stories of developing daily rhythms and sustainable faith in a culture of hustle.

At the darkest point of a life-altering depression, Hannah took a silver marker and labeled a composition book with two life-changing words: "Fight Song." In that little notebook, she poured hope-filled truths and affirmations, knowing that one day, she—and you—would need a reminder to stay in the fight. Drawn from those glow-in-the-dark words, Fighting Forward is your invitation to show up, claim hope, and take back your life one small win at a time.

With a heap of hope for those who long to move from anxiety and fear into action steps, the power-ballad essays in this book will encourage you to:

  • Savor the milestones you've already reached
  • Root yourself in the next small step
  • Welcome healthy routines into your day
  • Apply grace like sunscreen in the process of becoming who you're meant to be
  • Fighting Forward champions the truth that each song starts with a single note. With trust and a little time, each note and every small step adds up to a victorious anthem of showing up to this life and staying in the fight to become who God made you to be.

    Praise for Fighting Forward:

    "Picture you, beaten up and feeling defeated, resting against the edge of the ring ready to quit. God enters, eager to fight for you, to help you see the strength he has given you. Because God is loving and kind, he pulls in his friend Hannah Brencher—the compassionate coach, guide, poet, and prophet—who is going to use his words to show you: you're already standing; God has already won; and the fighting is what we get to do."

    —Jess Connolly, pastor, author of You Are the Girl for the Job, founder of Go + Tell Gals

    "Fighting Forward is the book we all needed—the book you'll want to read again and again. Get ready to be lifted up, set on a solid path, and cheered on with every turn of the page. Hannah Brencher has gifted us with an anthem for our weary souls that delivers vibrant hope, purpose, and needed truth!"

    —Lara Casey, author of Cultivate and Make It Happen and CEO of Cultivate What Matters
