“I don’t think I’m a failure because I have had fears, and I certainly don’t think that it is a requirement for Christians to forgo fear in order to be good followers of Christ. I believe fear is the natural response to the question satan whispered, and I find that every day I have to adjust my footing consciously to move toward Jesus.” – Angie Smith, What Women Fear, 4

SC: But why did she make it sound like an insult?
Girl, 13: There are no cows here, so–!
