Ready to Win over Worry and Anxiety by Thelma Wells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ready To Win Over Worry and Anxiety is a book and Bible study all wrapped into one resource. While I suppose you could use this for a Bible study group, it's meant for individual reading and study.
Thelma Wells addresses the topic of worry and anxiety in light of Scripture. This book is full of great encouragement, advice, and practical help for anyone - but mainly women - who are battling the sin of worry and anxiety. I found it to be highly interactive with all the questions, Bible verses to look up, and thoughts to respond to.
I am not sure I completely agree with all of Thelma's thoughts on various spiritual concepts - such as cleaning out demons - but I do think this book is still a valuable resource for those needing to get a handle on their worry and anxiety.
In the last four chapters she share four realities with us to replace the lies we hold onto in our times of worry and I think she presents those Biblical truths in easy-to-understand ways.
I enjoyed her casual, friend-to-friend writing style and her personal experience and sharing through out this short, yet intensively probing book. If worry and anxiety are all too common in your life I would highly recommend this book to you.
