I’m so glad you’ve joined us…
Trusting God doesn’t come easy living in this fallen, broken world. But I believe the Holy Spirit wants to help us build an unshakeable trust in God that stands steadfast even when life shakes, rattles and rolls!
The Embracing Trust 5-Day Challenge is fairly straightforward. Each day’s email will include a short video and a simple worksheet. But feel free to do the challenge at a slower pace, if you’d like.
It’s not important to get through it in five days. Instead, we want this message of embracing trust to sink deep in our hearts so that it changes the way we approach life and our relationship with God.

Click on the button below to access the worksheets…print them or fill them out on your computer or mobile device (if you’re especially good at typing on tiny keys!) But you definitely want to keep this important resource close at hand.
And hey, it’s not too late to invite a friend to join you on the journey. Just text them this link: www.JoannaWeaverBooks.com/ETchallenge so they can sign up to receive the emails as well!
Here’s how the challenge works…
There you have it!
To streamline the process, you’ll find all FIVE DAYS of the challenge right here on this page. But please pace yourself to go one step at a time so you get the most out of the challenge.
If you’d like to dive deeper on the day’s topic, you’ll find links to other resources to help grow your faith. Before we begin the challenge, may I pray for you?
Lord, I thank you so much for my friend and their desire to know and trust You on a deeper level than ever before. Holy Spirit of wisdom and revelation, please open the eyes of our understanding so that we come to know You more – our Forever-Faithful Father, our loving Savior, our closest Friend! Thank You that we don’t take this journey alone – You are going to lead and guide us every step of the way. Opening our eyes to Your goodness and Your faithfulness. Thank You for meeting us where we are and taking us where we need to be. For giving us grace to trust You more! Thank you, Lord. We receive it. In Jesus’ precious name…Amen.
Can’t wait to grow together!

Want to Go Deeper Still?
It’s been such an honor to do this challenge with you! Building an unshakeable faith doesn’t happen in a week. It’s forged over a lifetime.
If you’d like more resources to help you do that, I’ve created a 10-week video Bible study to go along with my book, Embracing Trust: The Art of Letting Go and Holding On to a Forever-Faithful God.
You can learn more about the book and study HERE
