A very practical book on dealing with the worry and stress in our lives. It begins with what causes people to worry. Another chapter deals with actual disorders related to worry and anxiety, such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Then steps are given to help break the fear-worry-stress cycle that we often find ourselves in. There are 3 components to fighting worry and stress. Each is addressed – the mind: telling ourselves truth statements, the body: eating healthy foods and exercising, and the spirit: growing in our knowledge and understanding of God’s Word. Some of the material deals with how to handle worry and anxiety in children and teens, as well as parents interacting with their young adult children.
At the end of the book is a 30 day devotional to help engage our minds with the Bible and combatting worry.
I would recommend this for people who feel that their lives are out of control with stress as it gives practical advice for lowering stress and worry.
