    In the words of Dr. Brené Brown, “owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.” Brenda Crouch’s book Fight Forward is all courage, bathed in truth and motivated by love.

  • Kathleen Cooke
    In Romans 12:18 Paul instructs us, “If it is possible as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” To live “at peace” means giving up and allowing God to take on the suffering and pain we have endured through-out our life’s journey. Jesus endured the cross so that we would have the option to choose peace. In family relationships, marriages, and friendships that have cut into our beings, the blood of Jesus is the only healing sol-vent—but our healing also depends on us and what we choose. Brenda Crouch has chosen peace. In her book Fight Forward: Reclaim the Real You,she reveals her healing journey so you can take a risk and embark on the same steps toward peace. If you are struggling, don’t miss this revealing, heartfelt read. Choose peace.

  • Santita Jackson
    My father, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, has often said to me, “There’s a lot of private pain in public life.” And most often those in ministry feel pressured to mask their troubles, fearing the disappointment and condemnation that exposure of those challenges might bring forth. Well, no more! In Fight Forward, Brenda Crouch courageously lifts her veil and shows us how transparency leads to transformation. Blessed assurance, our scars can become our stars. Thank you, Brenda, for reminding us that our pain is our pathway to our greatest possibilities and power.
