ABOUT THE BOOK: This book includes practical tools for handling stress based on solid biblical principles. Christian families experience stress just like any other family. They go through crises and conflicts, sin and sickness, fear and failure. Children and teens wrestle with pressures their parents never imagined. Loving families sometimes fight. Faithful people still struggle with finances. Yes, being Christian does not exempt anyone from the stressors of regular life. At work, in school, and around the community, believing families struggle with many issues that add stress to their lives. This book speaks to parents, teens, and children. It can help adults in the workplace and kids in schools. Within these pages are solutions for resolving conflict, dealing with bullies, managing time and money, and building sound relationships.
