This book was written by someone who grew up in my home town. How could I avoid getting a copy? I hadn’t read the summaries or reviews before sending for it and expected a novel. Instead I was delighted with a women’s Christian non-fiction book that is sprinkled through with wit and wisdom.
All of us worry periodically, some more than others. Ms. Miller gives positive methods to overcome our destructive worries through faith. Worry, after all, is a pointless emotion that resolves nothing and can cause physical and mental harm. She carefully explains that’s not God’s plan for us. She quotes many authorities, including those in the Bible.
Through the retelling of stories told to her, as well as her own, she conveys successful ways to overcome our anxieties. We can never be completely free of worry, but we can channel our thoughts and actions in positive directions. By reminding ourselves to trust and have faith in God, our Father, we can live better, happier, more productive lives by allowing worry to fall off our backs like so many raindrops.
I took a while to finish this book because I slowly read each page, attempting to garner all its wisdom. I highly recommend it. — Gail Lewis
