Hi, I'm Aine Rock


“So many people know who they want to be. They know what they want. And there’s just a fear loop keeping them from getting there.” – Brit Barron

Who are you supposed to be? That is the question all of us grapple with at some point in our lives. The answer is not always easy, especially if you’re living your life afraid of how others will see you. Our guest this week on Rock Your Joy is Brit Barron, author of Worth It: Overcome Your Fears and Embrace the Life You Were Made For. Brit was an Evangelical pastor before her world changed when she fell in love with a woman. Listen for Brit’s inspiring story and let go of your fear to live the life of your dreams.

What do you do when you have a nagging feeling that you’re not living the life you are meant to? Brit Barron grew up in an Evangelical church, even rising to become a pastor. Her world changed when she fell in love with a woman.

After navigating the challenge of coming out, Brit realized that many other people also struggle with giving themselves the freedom to pursue what they truly want. Today on Rock Your Joy, we’re discussing the importance of allowing ourselves the freedom to be who we want without the worry of what others think.

Listen to the episode and check out Brit’s new book, Worth It: Overcome Your Fears and Embrace the Life You Were Made For, and give yourself the grace to leave the fears that are not serving you behind.

Brit Barron is a speaker, teacher, and author. She is a natural connector and steps onto stages to address areas of personal development, race, gender, and sexuality. Growing up in an Evangelical megachurch in the ’90s, Brit was always trying to fit neatly inside the boundaries her church and its narrow view of God had placed around her. She was boxed in by her fears, unable to realize her full potential.

All that changed when she met a woman named Sami, fell in love, and chose to leave behind those narrow boundaries in favor of a fuller and more vibrant life. Brit’s first book, Worth It: Overcome Your Fears and Embrace the Life You Were Made For, launched in July of 2020. In Worth It, Brit tells her story to inspire all of us to overcome our own fears— the kinds of fears that keep us from evolving beyond the narratives that have been handed to us by others.
