About Shelby Hughes

I grew up in a small cabin built by none other than my parents themselves. They had help here and there, but Dad drew up the blueprint, we moved hundreds of miles away, and they got to work.

S2E9: Fear & Stillness

Do you struggle with fear? On today's episode, I'm talking about fear regarding relationship with family and friends. I have come to find that it's in stillness with God where fears are calmed, where I can truly say "it is well with my soul," where I can walk with confidence because God is holding everything together.

So I hope you'll take a listen and hear my heart, and then in the presence of God, choose faith over fear.
