The Stress Cure: Praying Your Way to Personal Peace
Linda Evans Shepherd
About the Book:
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.

STRESS!!!!!! We all suffer from some form of stress, either stress we get from being a parent, the stress of worry, stress from other people. The list can go on and on and on. How many times do we look for quick fixes to get rid of our stress? We try to eliminate drama out of our lives that cause stress; we try different exercises or the next quick fix that some doctor on TV tells us about. But in all reality there is only one true remedy to stress and Ms. Evans tells us that in her new book, The Stress Cure.
What would you say if the true remedy is prayer? At first, I was like no it can be because I have prayed for the stress to be removed out of my life and wham, nothing. The stress remained. Its more than just prayer, we have to take the time to recognize God’s continual presence in our lives and how we need yield our troubles to the one true King, the Prince of Peace. After reading The Stress Cure, I promise you will feel differently and really know that there is a cure to all the stress we have in our lives.
I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone; you definitely will not be disappointed.
Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book for my honest review.
