Worries bother a lot of people. So the author has taken this part of her life and broken down how she overcame her worry and became more at peace with herself and God. She gives ideas and tools for banishing the worry and replacing it with more positive thoughts. I tend to be a worrier. So I was really looking forward to this book. The cover is gorgeous and the concept is so needed in today's world. But the execution just wasn't there for me. The author gave some very detailed stories and references to showcase worry. But a lot of them tended to border neurosis (the author's words). She talked a lot about bringing out the inner child that is being smothered by the outer adult so that you can let go of your worries. There weren't as many scripture references to back everything up as I'd expected. So much of it just didn't apply to my situations in life. While it was an entertaining read, I just couldn't find anything that was helpful. I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.

WORRY LESS SO YOU CAN LIVE MORE Surprising, Simple Ways to Feel More Peace, Joy, and Energy By Jane Rubietta Are you worrying about things? Want to overcome worrying? You will find help in this book. Each chapter has a story from the author’s life and how she works to overcome worry, how God is with her and us in all things. At the end of each chapter, she includes a quote from a book, a scripture verse, and discussion questions for the reader. The book, written mainly for women but can be read by men, (we are guilty of worry too and need the same help). I found the writing down to earth and easy to understand, the information offered is helpful and a big reminder that God is there when we need him. Jane Rubietta reminds us that God forgives us and does not remember our sins. The remembering of sins is our problem. When we worry, we are not allowing God to take care of us, as He has told us that He will. A quote from the book: "Though we might not remember or even have recognized God's presence, God was present. God is present in all our yesterdays, our todays, and our tomorrows." In each chapter, Jane offers a different tool to help deal with worrying. The main point of the book is to believe that God is in our lives and is looking out for us. Let Him do what He does best, which is love us and taking care of us. I received this book free from Bethany House for purpose of this review, I was not required to write a positive review, the opinions I have expressed are my own.
