Trade Your Cares for Calm by Max Lucado
I honestly think many of us struggle with occasional anxiety and bouts of worry in our day and age. Even though we know God is there, it isn't always easy to default to faith. Trade Your Cares for Calm by Max Lucado offers solid advice and encouragement to focus on God instead of fear.
Trade Your Cares for Calm does take content from several of Lucado's other books on fear and enouragement and compiles some of his best tidbits into this inspirational book. There are 10 chapters of Lucado's encouraging words. Each chapter has Bible verses, gorgeous nature photos, and stories and tips on keeping worry under control. There are also pages to journal to help figure out why you are worried and how to start to think differently about your problems. The ribbon marker helps you keep your place so you know where you left off.
Trade Your Cares for Calm would be a great book to keep or to give as a gift to someone facing worrisome challenges--medical struggles, financial problems, or most any other challenge in our society today. I like that this book has plenty of space to journal your answers to the thought-provoking questions. However, it is such a beautiful book that I wasn't sure I wanted to write in it so used a notebook for my answers. I highly recommend Trade Your Cares for Calm for anyone struggling with worry.
I received Trade Your Cares for Calm by Max Lucado from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
