Book Summary
Stress-Free Believers helps you dethrone the stress bully that is often caused by loss of employment, marital conflict, credit card debt, and countless other pressure points. Here is the battle plan you need to get harmful stress off your back so you can manage the tough times with composure.
    You’ll learn how to:
  • Convert your thoughts from worry to faith.
  • Develop patience in the midst of chaos.
  • Take control of your thinking, emotions, and commitments.
  • Identify the tools God has given you to overcome stress.
  • Recognize the part you play in God’s comprehensive plan.

This step-by-step guide shows how to reduce unhealthy levels of stress in each area of daily living. The objective is not just to overcome our ordeals but to do so without anxiety.
Stress-Busting Bible Verses
  1. Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
  2. Do not be afraid ... for the battle is not yours, but God’s. (2 Chronicles 20:15)
  3. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)
  4. Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:4)
  5. He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6)
  6. Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. (Matthew 6:25).
  7. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. (1 Corinthians 10:13)
  8. The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1)
  9. My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)  
  10. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
There are some really great verses and ideas in this book to help relieve stress.  Realistically, I don't believe there is a way to reduce stress 100% in anyone's life.  We DO live in a broken and fallen world.  But by concentrating on He Who holds the world in the palm of His hand...we have a much better chance!  God IS in control.

As I read your post, Kerri, I actually felt my shoulders relax a little, so I read it again!

You don't mention dates for this Giveaway - at least on my readings I didn't see one! So, I am hoping there is still time for me to throw my name in the hat!
