The Stress Cure by Linda Evans Shepherd

About the Book:

"Linda brilliantly and biblically shines the light on exchanging the crippling and unwanted stresses of life for the promised gift of peace. Packed with prayer and promises, this book will free you to experience the power of God's peace."--Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author of Unglued and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
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 ideas about how to cope are not necessarily what we need if we're stressed and anxious.

What we need is a cure.

The true remedy to stress, Linda Evans Shepherd says, is prayer. In this inspiring book, she shows you how to recognize God's continual presence in your life and yield your troubles to the Prince of Peace. Through captivating stories, explorations of fascinating biblical characters, and examples of deeper-than-ever prayers, she brings within your grasp the peace that passes understanding. If you are overwhelmed by all of the urgent demands on your time, this book offers you a lifeline to true peace.

My Thoughts:

I usually avoid books that have the word 'cure' in the title.  The only person I know has a cure for anything is Jesus Himself.  But I've read Linda's books before, and she's a woman who puts her feet where he books encourage you to go.

The chapters are brief, but are packed with lots of Scripture, personal stories and Biblical characters that help to illustrate each point.  Each chapter closes with a prayer, and the words are penetrating.  Every word points straight to Jesus as our Prince of Peace, and the beauty of the book is you can read the chapter that applies to you, focusing on the current need in your life.

Or you can read the book straight through.  You can even use "The Stress Cure" as a small group study.  My thanks to my friends at Revell Publishing for my advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  I can definitely recommend "The Stress Cure".

Happy Reading!
