According to Stress.org, nearly 80 percent of Americans feel stress at their job. Author June Paul asks: how can Americans respond to this upward spiral of anxiety?
In her new book “Praying Our Way Through Stress,” Paul challenges the working world to use prayer as their daily stress reliever. Condensing her church workshops into a few chapters, Paul provides a guide that defines and discusses the dangers of stress within daily life.
“My book examines the dangers of untreated stress, traumatic stress and PTSD,” Paul said. “Throughout the chapters, the book talks about stress brought on by jealousy and greed, then moves into a discussion of healthy ways to overcome the negative effects.”
Using a biblical perspective, this book is an essential for parents, teens and young adults. Beginning with the stress surrounded by Jesus’ birth, this book explores the Saviour’s stories from Matthew 4 through The Sermon on the Mount. Showing how Jesus overcame stress, Paul illustrates the true remedy for anxiety is love.
“After facing my own times of great stress, I have a deep and abiding faith in the Lord,” Paul said. “It takes the courage to love those things that stress us out the most – just as Jesus did throughout the Gospel.”
By clearly defining stress in ways that readers can understand and lead discussions, this book is great for personal or group use.
