Stress-Free Believers

I read "Stress-Free Believers Turn Your Worry into Faith, Turmoil Into Peace" by Harold Metzel. I got a lot out of this book. I have been going through some stressful times in different areas of my life. I had been having a tough time thinking things through. When you are in this situation it is difficult to know what to do. This book really helped me. One thing he said in the book is that the tools available to de-throne the stress bully are faith and the courage to act on it. This is a very practical book. If you are a believer and are wondering how to deal with the stress in your life I would suggest reading it and putting into practice the advice that the author gives.
I was given this book to review and I have given an honest review of the book and receive no compensation for it.Stress-Free Believers: Turn Worry into Faith, Turmoil into Peace
