Friends! Load up your car with buddies and head to Middletown United Methodist Church (MUMC) next Monday night, October 28th, from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
We’ll be discussing a highly unique book called Afraid of All the Things: Tornadoes, Cancer, Adoption, and Other Stuff You Need the Gospel For by Scarlet Hiltibidal.
Scarlet isn’t afraid to tell you why she’s been afraid of you-name-it most of her life. Her various antics, some real, and some imagined, will have you crying from laughing so hard, God bless her.
The gift she gives us readers is her discovery of holding up the Gospel to her fears. Our sweet Lord teaches her He is her answer. His perfect love casts out fear. (1 John 4:18)
One of many favorite quotes is:
A favorite Scripture she reminds us of is: “I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, Lord, make me live in safety.” (Psalm 4:8)
Scarlet blesses us readers with Scripture after Scripture, promise after promise, we can cling to for many scenarios. Through her many trials, we see her put this into action. (These are great lessons we can take note of.)
One of Scarlet’s scariest moments dealt with her Mother’s cancer. Some of you may not know who her mom is. I bet many of you know of her. She’s often interviewed on the Eric Metaxas Show. Curious? Scarlet’s Mom is Victoria Jackson from Saturday Night Live!!! Who knew?
You also don’t want to miss how Scarlet and her family came to adopt a deaf orphan girl from China. How it comes down is astonishing and obviously an only-God-could-orchestrate this endeavor. Watch the beauty of others embracing them during this time and helping to assimilate their daughter into the United States. This is a beautiful picture of the body of Christ.

Also, friends, you don’t want to miss the sweet, personal video message Scarlet sent us from her farm! She’s tickled pink we’ll be discussing her book this Monday!
You’ll also be amused by her newest book, He Numbered the Pores on My Face: Hottie Lists, Clogged Pores, Eating Disorders, and Freedom From It All . (And she just announced she got a contract for another book! We don’t know its topic yet. No telling given her hilarious titles. Congrats, Scarlet!)
Come and laugh with all of us and be encouraged. Bring your friends! Sky’s the limit on snack options. From the below quote in Scarlet’s Acknowledgments, can you guess what I’m bringing???
We hope to see you Monday, October 28th, from 6:30-8:00!
