ear Gary: Your book was an inspiration to me and should be required reading for everyone, especially students and young adults. I couldn’t put it down once I started reading and can’t wait to share it with friends and relatives. I’m not giving up my signed copy of FEAR is NEVER your FRIEND so please let me know where can I buy ten more books Thanks for being such a good person and thanks even more for your wisdom and friendship.
ear Gary: Wow! And a million thanks for your insightful, spirit-healing and inspirational book, Fear is Never Your Friend. It is my new traveling companion, and a book I highly recommend to all.
For many years, when in despair or downhearted, in addition to seeking guidance and solace through prayer and the Bible, I often referred to Dale Carnegie’s How to Stop Worrying and Start Living.
Now, instead of seeking Mr. Carnegie’s advice, I head straight for your words of wisdom Fear certainly is never our friend, but your wonderful book definitely is.
With best regards,
ear Mr. Richardson, I recently read your book “Fear Is Never Your Friend”, that was lent to me by my ex husband. I have to say that I was not that excited to be given a “self help” book recommended by my ex husband! I did not think any book could help me change my outlook, or help me overcome my fears which consumed my everyday life. On the outside I kept up a good front, smiling and joking, not letting anyone see how much in turmoil I was on the inside.
I am 46 years old, had just been served divorce papers after 26 years of marriage, and had never been as fearful in my life as to what I was supposed to do now. I had lived my entire married life fearful that my husband wouldn’t make his dream into a reality, and what would people think of us, how we would pay our house payment etc.. I resented that he had this unwavering faith, and why I couldn’t have that too. He was never in doubt, and would always say, “we have never done without, and the money will be there on time.” Of course he was right, but that wouldn’t stop me from repeating the whole routine the next month.
I was hooked after reading the first chapter of your book. I felt that it was an intervention from God that [my ex husband] knew you, and had the book to lend to me, it has literally changed my life. I feel I have my faith back, and I live each day for what it has to offer. I have gone an entire month without feeling the overwhelming fear that consumed my life. I wanted to personally thank you for changing my life and way of thinking. I work for a Halfway House for recovering women and their children, so I have ordered your book to have available for our clients, and of course I wanted my own personal copy.
ear Gary: I want to express my personal thanks for sharing your unique perspective with The Ambassador Class at Tulsa Bible Church. The two Sundays you were there, the class was packed with about 80 people, and was very interested and responsive to the subject. I think we sold about 30 books.
Your candor and vulnerability was very evident and made the reality of fear in our lives more personal to each of us. The comments expressed to me were, thanks for making us more aware of the difference between knowledge and fear. Also, the fact that so often we bury fear in our sub-conscious mind, and do not deal with it. Some said, I always thought fear was just a part of life that we all had to live and deal with every day.
Personally, I thought your presentation was excellent and you are welcome back anytime. Thank you for your sharing this important subject with me and my friends.

ear Gary, I received your kind note and latest book Fear is Never your Friend.
A particular portion of your book resonated with me. The portion on page 122 spoke to me when you were outlining the “Plan B” in goal setting. While on life’s journey there are roadblocks and detours, but ultimately we end at the same destination-if we are free from fear.
I believe this book will help many people. I love the title! I am honored you thought enough of me and our relationship to send me your latest book.
Thank you for your kindness.
