Fear freezes us. Imprisons us. In some instances, it alters our true personality. In A Proxy Wedding, my novella in A Spring of Weddings collection, Carly and Damien have to examine why they’re fearful. It’s shaped their career choices, lack of dating, and fear of falling in love.

I wanted them to discover why they were fearful so they could turn it over to God and heal. Isn’t that just like us? We hold on to our fear instead of releasing it to the One who could make it all better. There’s a reason why God cautions us to not be afraid over and over in the Bible. Yet, we still are afraid until we truly surrender the root issue to God.

So what are you afraid of?

Only, Carly never counted on the feelings that began to swirl around with the proxy groom.

Instead of taking a quick flight to the proxy wedding, he has to take a road trip with the proxy bride. Carly’s free-spirit attitude bumps heads with his meticulous approach to life.
