Elizabeth South is a singer/songwriter who is also a full-time elementary music and drama teacher.

"Do It Afraid" is Elizabeth South's Sophomore album. The inspiration for the song and album title, "Do It Afraid," came to her after she surprisingly developed stage fright several years ago after going through a difficult annulment. One morning when she was terrified of a particular upcoming performance, she read a devotional and book written by Joyce Meyer that was called, Do It Afraid. She was immediately inspired to write the song, "Do It Afraid," after reading that devotion and the book. She sat down at the piano that very morning and started writing the verse to the song, which led her down the road to recording this new album and song!!

In Joyce Meyer's book, Do It Afraid, she shares the true life story of Elisabeth Elliot's fear of returning to the ministry in Ecuador after her husband, Jim Elliot, had been killed by the very people they had ministered to. She was paralyzed by the feelings of fear and every time she tried to go back into ministry, her fear stopped her. Then a friend told her something that set her free. Her friend said, "Why don't you do it afraid?" She then followed that advice and went back to evangelize the Indian tribe of Ecuador, including the very people who had killed the one she loved.

Many times we think we should wait to do something we feel called to do when we are no longer feeling afraid. The concept of "no fear" has become a popular motto. And while that is a wonderful idea, many of us have a difficult time getting rid of those feelings no matter how much we pray or believe. But if we wait until we no longer feel afraid, we may accomplish very little for God, others, and ourselves. So even if you feel afraid, go ahead and do what God has called you to do, knowing that He will always be with you, even if you have to do it afraid!

Since writing and performing this song, Elizabeth has found strength in the song while facing her own ongoing fears. And in return, the song and album has already been an encouragement to many other people as well. Elizabeth has a degree in Music Therapy and is finding that she is able to practice this field through her music even though she is not practicing it as an official career.

She hopes that you also find encouragement and hope in this song and album!! Please comment, share, and thumbs up!
