I received this book in exchange for my review. This post contains a small amount of advertisement.

"And which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to his life span?" ~ Matthew 6:27

Are you a chronic worrier? Or maybe you worry and don't even realize it. God's Word tells us not to worry, but how when there is sooo much to worry about?

Regardless of the storms of trials, temptations, worry, uncertainty, or regrets that you're facing, you can trust God. Let this book increase your faith and trust in God, and you'll experience the peace you desire. Its conversational style, personal testimonies, practical illustrations, and solid biblical teaching provide the tools you need to break the hold and overcome the devastating effects of worry.

About the Author:
Kathy wanted to be a writer when she was a teenager, she just didn't know what it looked like. As a young mom, she took a community writers class and learned about a query letter. She sent one off and as a result, sold my first article. Then she went to a writers conference and three years later, published her first book. It was called Out of Control and told the story of how God delivered me from being a child abuser. Now over 30 years later, she has 49 published books and #50 contracted. She loves writing and speaking. Her passion is to help Christians trust God more and to help others know how much God loves them. 
She lives in Southern California with her husband, Larry, of 43 years. They've written books together and speak together on marriage. She feels privileged and grateful to serve God as a writer and speaker.

My Thoughts:
Are you a chronic worrier? Or maybe you worry and don't even realize it. God's Word tells us not to worry, but how, when there is sooo much to worry about?
This book really spoke to me. To be honest, before reading this book, I didn't really think I was much of a worrier. But Kathy brought to light some areas of my life I tend to worry about more than I realized. 
Kathy writes chapters in concepts of storms, - tornadoes, ice storms, rain, etc... In each one she analyzes a characteristic of worry, how it affects us, what God's Word says and how to combat those worries with Scripture and prayer. This book has challenged me in many ways: going  to God first, worrying less, and stop excusing my worry as concern, or love.  Many times worrying about people can even hinder our relationships with them as they will not feel comfortable sharing things that happen with us, or maybe avoid us altogether. 
At the end of each chapter are questions for individual or group discussion. Kathy has also included a refreshing letter from God reminding us how He feels about us, and our value, and that He is in control of our concerns.
