“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

—Jeremiah 29:11

Many of us have heard this scripture and get very excited when we think about it. “God has the plans for my life already laid out.  This is great!”  But what happens when you realize you have a responsibility within those plans?  What happens when fears you have allowed to manifest over the years keep you from achieving those very plans?
In order to achieve God’s plans for our lives, we have to acknowledge we have fear, understand the root cause of those fears, and take actions to overcome them.


Faith to Conquer Fear: Inspiration to Achieve your Dreams offers a compilation of quotes, anecdotes, and religious references that will give you inspiration to tread the path laid out for you.  These words of encouragement will give you the motivation you need to move forward with confidence.

Faith to Conquer Fear™:  The Journey is a practical guide for anyone who feels hindered by fear. In these pages, you’ll find exercises, activities, and prayers to help you identify and confront your fears. With a little faith in God and in yourself, you can better fulfill God’s plan and achieve your dreams.

Hi.  I’m Christy Demetrakis, founder and president of the Empowered Speaker, a company that teaches the importance of faith in conquering fears. I host the Faith to Conquer Fear™ radio show and am the author of Faith to Conquer Fear™: Inspiration to Achieve your Dreams and the newly published Faith to Conquer Fear™:  The Journey.
I have more than two decades of professional experience in a variety of fields, including sales and management at Procter & Gamble and other Fortune 500 companies.  As a certified instructor for the SpeakersTrainingCamp™, I offer public workshops and customized on-site programs to help others improve their public speaking and presentation skills.
I hold a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  On a personal note, I have been married to my husband, James, for twenty-two years. We live in Northern Kentucky with our two children and our dog.

Why am I introducing you to my newest book?

Faith to Conquer Fear™:  The Journey is perfect for connect groups, small groups, and bible study series.  The book offers insights to empower you and sharpen your focus on your personal journey. It peels away hidden thoughts, exposing fear and negative thoughts. Faith to Conquer Fear:  The Journey gives relevant action steps to conquer fear and achieve the God-designed and assigned vision for your life.  On this journey, I believe there is a path to be followed.  The journey is continual. It is on-going. It is not always easy.  Based on life’s challenges, you may make the trek numerous times.  The purpose of this book is to provide a biblical basis for overcoming each leg of the journey with key action steps.  Think of Faith to Conquer Fear:  The Journey as a roadmap.  Each chapter is a new phase of the journey.
When you take the time to read this book and complete the activities, you will have clear actions and next steps to build your momentum, your faith, and conquer your fears.

Too often, we have wonderful, God given dreams and visions, but are hindered by what I call “hidden fears.”  We can’t move forward because of an experience that happened fifteen years ago, for example.  Fear of success, fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of flying, and more keep us from realizing our dreams. Only until we face these fears will we be able to walk in wholeness and victory. Only then will Jeremiah 29:11 fully ring true as we own our part of the plan.
