Joseph (T.J.) Smith marks his debut in the publishing scene with a new book sharing “My Testimony: The Battle Between Faith and Fear” (published by iUniverse). Inspired from his personal journey, this narrative invites readers to be a witness to the author’s testimonies as encouragement to overcome fear and exchange it for faith.

Every individual is constantly fighting the battle of facing life with faith or fleeing it with fear. “My Testimony: The Battle Between Faith and Fear” offers the reader hope, inspiration, motivation, and most of all encouragement to pursue and win the battle between faith and fear. “People generally do not operate in faith and fear at the same time,” Smith points out. “One way to become truly successful in life is to overcome fear and operate in total faith or confidence.”

A snippet from the book reads:
Whenever you encounter turbulence, sit down, properly secure your seatbelt, turn on the no joking sign, and then wait for God to move about the cabin.

“It’s easy for someone to operate in fear, walk in darkness and hope for the best. But it is gratifying to know that someone can operate in faith, walk in the light and expect the best,” the author shares. “My readers should know that if we stand firm and allow faith to serve as a main component of our roots, we would be able to withstand the wind and the rain, growing stronger each time. The wind and the rain help us to strengthen our roots and grow our faith.”
