Recommended Resources: Coping with Stress God's Way!

by  Don Colbert, MD

We hear a lot about how we need to "give it all to Jesus"  or "cast all of our cares on Him."  And it's all true!  But learning to cast our cares and lower our stress levels is not an easy-breezy skill.  And often the people who encourage us to do those things don't really offer any practical suggestions on how to do it!

This book is written by a Christian doctor who understands the commitment it takes to overcome a life of stress and live more in God's rest. He doesn't give flippant admonitions, but nitty-gritty-rubber-meets-the-road steps we can all take to follow God's plan for our lives.  He includes nutrition, Scripture, sleep, margin, exercise, the habit of joy, and so many other Scriptural habits that Jesus modeled for a balanced lifestyle.
