    Biggest fear: Something will happen to my Mom while we’re in Germany.

    Overcome: I got married! Never thought I would; never wanted to. Became a Christian, discovered love and VOILA!

    Biggest Fear : not living out my destiny (ever read John Bevere’s Driven By Eternity? Fear doesn’t really describe the feeling…I’m not scared…)

    Fear Overcome : singing solo in public. Thankfully I got over that a really long time ago now 🙂

    My biggest fear was also the one I overcame… I always feared I’d die alone with no one to love me (I even learned to cook because I thought I’d never get married!) But this year makes 8 years I’ve been married… got two boys now, too 😉

    Never really being entirely true to myself and still being worried about what other people think of me even when I’m older

    My biggest fear became my biggest gift….the fear of people really knowing me and all I had been through. Today, I am at a point where these experiences are exactly what God is using!

    My biggest fear is failure…and not living up to my potential…whatever THAT means.

    As for a fear I conquered, a few years ago, Mark and I went to Colorado for vacation. We did a little rock climbing, and I realized that I am TERRIFIED of climbing down. Climbing UP was no problem, but DOWN was scary!!! After a few tears and a little teasing from my husband (I was really NOT that far off the ground), I made it back down. Obviously. I mean, otherwise, I’d be blogging from that rock. And I’m not.

    Biggest fear: Something will happen to either of my parents, but especially my dad (his health is worse), at an early age.

    Fear overcome: Buses. I used to be convinced they’re just death traps. One night, I had a dream that I was on a bus that fell down the side of a canyon (Grand Canyon-esque), but landed upright and everyone was perfectly fine. Now I can actually ride them.

    I have overcome a fear of bugs/ticks on my body.

    Ever since I came to Christ I always have had a fear that I would not be faithful to God. In other words I have a fear of messing it up. I know now you really can’t, but I don’t want to be far from Him.

    A fear I have overcome is having children. Since I had a messed up childhood I really didn’t think I could be even close to a good mom. How do you do something you really haven’t seen done correctly? Then I realized there of course were things my mother did right, and the other things God teaches me. And of course I won’t do it correctly. Do you see a pattern in me not liking to mess up?

    I have a couple… but my absolute biggest one is that I’ll never get married or have a family. As for overcoming… I’m sure there are some, but I can’t think of them for the life of me.

    Biggest fear I have overcome: well it’s real private, but it only happen because of a great God.

    Still fear:

    Current? Probably fear of failure. I have to take definite measures to not let it have too much control. And even now, I’m sure it has a bit too much. :/

    Past? Fear of anything dark or black (from when I was really little). You can read my story on that here and my Mom’s story here (page 23). I hope that last link works for you. If not (and you really want to read it) I’ll give you a different link.

    How’s Nashville?

    I fear lots of things.

    I fear thinking I have a close relationship with God, so I stop listening as well.

    I fear not being loved by someone.

    I fear spiders. Oh man.

    I fear foods that have unknown sauces on them.

    I fear failing the people around me.

    I fear never figuring out healthy coping skills, and always struggling with black and white thinking.

    I used to fear eye contact, but a friend helped me overcome that. I find this significant. I am grateful for her help in this endeavor.

    biggest fear – complacency, disobedience. which leaves me in fear of looking back one day to realize i had missed out on big opportunities for Him.

    biggest fear overcome…speaking in a crowd. i think. im not sure. im not fearful of many things. well…i did eat mandy’s dumplins despite of my feat of soggy food.
