It’s what she calls the Faith Dare, in which she challenges women to develop the habit of focusing on God and living out their faith in every situation for 30 days.

Alsdorf, a popular author, speaker and ministry leader, equips women to undertake this 30-day challenge in her new book, The Faith Dare. To cultivate a lifestyle of daily, passionate faith, she helps readers learn, day by day, to develop habits that will help them connect intimately to God.

Every day, readers will be challenged to go deeper. Examples of the daily dares include:

  • Dare to live in the miracle of who you are.
  • Dare to believe in God’s power in all circumstances.
  • Your browser may not support display of this image. Dare to surrender to the process of change.
  • Dare to speak praise, sing praise, and live with confidence in God.

Readers will also learn practical ways of applying God’s Word to their own lives, whether it’s in their personal relationship with God, learning to surrender to self, or living out God’s love to others.

I am really enjoying Debbie Alsdorf's Faith Dare!! She has given us a down-to-earth daily devotional, that if taken to heart, will challenge you to deepen your faith, to walk closer to God, to live in the Scriptures, "to live your life to the fullest!"

In the introduction, the dare is described as a "fasting of self," which is something I believe the Lord has been working on in me! Debbie explains that "the daily readings will help you practice looking up to God, looking in at your heart and attitudes, and living out your faith in practical ways." Debbie uses scripture to define faith and explain why it is important. Hebrews 11:6 says "without faith it is impossible to please God;"and Romans 10:17 says "faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ." I am familiar with both are verses; however in this context they spoke new truth to me! God is using this book to develop a passion for His Word. I look forward to continuing through the rest of the dare and I plan on repeating it when I am done!
I encourage you to get one and try The Faith Dare as well! Trust God to change you through this book!
