Words That Change Everything offers hope and practical strategies to help women speak God’s truth to their unbridled and often debilitating emotions.
Worry, anxiety, and fear saturate our world today more than ever—from acts of terrorism to economic downturns. But many women face real fears in their own homes—death, illness, job loss, betrayal, rejection, and dozens of other threats that challenge their family’s well being. As women recognize and understand the warnings signs of worry and negative self-talk, they can employ strategies to navigate their overwhelming anxiety and hopeless thoughts.
Most Christian women know the Bible encourages them not to worry about anything, but few women know how to respond to their worries, especially in a crisis. Words That Change Everything offers true personal stories with biblical applications to help everyday women understand the purpose of their God-given emotions and identify biblical prayer strategies to help them confront their worries.
