Battle Ready {Book Review}

If there’s one thing I’ve learned recently it’s that I have more control over the way that I react to situations in my life if I take the time to prepare my heart a little bit every day for whatever I may face. It’s not about knowing you’re going to face a battle and then mentally preparing yourself. It’s about expecting that everyday might bring you a battle and you have to do a little bit every single day so that you are battle ready. 

Battle Ready: Train Your Mind to Conquer Challenges, Defeat Doubt, and Live Victoriously

In her newest book, Battle Ready Kelly Balarie has taken the time to break down what she calls the 12 Warrior-Mindsets. Each mindset is designed to help us change the way we are currently thinking about our situations. To reshape the challenges, troubles and even positive opportunities into situations where we can thrive. And all this happens because we’ve put the time in day by day to create a plan that lets us thrive. 

As you work your way through these mindsets, there is space to work out what you’re learning. Through questions and checklists and thought inventories, Balarie will challenge you to examine your current life. And once you’ve examined your current life, you’ll be able to move forward and thrive in a better life. This isn’t a pretty book to sit on your bookshelf. This is a book that invites you to dig in. To accept the messy parts of life and work through them. 

Live Victoriously

Through each page, Balarie will point you back towards living victoriously with God. It’s not a book that will prop you up for a moment. It’s a book that will give you the tools necessary to continuously live your best life. 

No matter what gets thrown at us each and every day, when we can spend some time focused on the possibilities and ways God is encouraging us to turn to him, we live victoriously. Battle Ready will teach you, the reader, learn how to face the worst moments of life with hope. When you live Battle Ready, you’re not going to have to question whether or not you are thriving in life. You will know that you are sitting in the palm of God’s hand, and trusting His plan for your every day.


I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.
