Did you know fear usually originates from two things? Believing you won't get something you want or you will loose something you already have. Fear is something I (Teresa) learned about early in my childhood. Until I understood how it originated it also diminished my self esteem. After listening today you will discover how to eradicate the root of fear so you can rest in how much you are loved and valued in Christ and how to reclaim you self-esteem. Inspired by Psalm 27:1
