{{Book Review}} The Stress Cure: Praying Your Way to Personal Peace by Linda Evans Shepherd

We live in a world filled to the brim with advice, and when it comes to dealing with stress, there's plenty of advice to go around. Sleep more, eat better, avoid this, seek out that. But more advice on coping is not necessarily what the stressed and anxious person needs. What we need is a cure. Linda Evans Shepherd has discovered it.

The true remedy to stress, she says, is prayer. In this inspiring book, Shepherd shows readers how to recognize God's continual presence and yield their troubles to the Prince of Peace. Through captivating stories, explorations of fascinating biblical characters, and examples of deeper-than-ever prayers, she brings within readers' grasp the peace that passes understanding. Anyone who is overwhelmed by all of the urgent demands on their time will find in this book a lifeline to true peace.

*My Review*
I am no stranger to stress, so I was excited to read this book. This is a book that everyone should read. It was such an uplifting book to read. In this book Linda shares her personal stories in each chapter and helps us to see that praying your way to personal peace is only just a prayer or two away. She gives prayer prompts and Biblical encouragement to take it to the Lord in prayer. Everything she said was Biblical and right.

I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
