Great book I wanted to read a second book after I finished it. I would like to read it in a book study again. ( )

Advice for women on how to be content as a Christian. Quite readable with some personal anecdotes and stories of other women who struggled with anxiety and worries. However, a few days after finishing it, I don't recall anything particularly mind-blowing. There were some interesting sections and the advice was sound, but it was nothing new.

I liked the style of writing which was clear and easy without being condescending, but found myself puzzled as to why it was written for women. In my personal experience, men worry just as much, and in similar ways.

Overall a good read, but I'm glad I had it free for my Kindle rather than paying for it. ( )

I've been through this book twice, both on my own and then as part of a small group. It is excellent, what I liked it how it addresses core issues that affect people every day. These are issues that women tend to particularly struggle with (though I'm sure many men do as well)--issues such as body image, dwelling on the "if onlys" and "what ifs" and other thoughts that make us anxious. I liked the way she wove scripture and personal stories throughout the book, and how scripture memory, prayer, and meditation or journaling were emphasized in the accompanying study guide. It's well worth reading--and reading again. ( )

This was a possible study for my women's small group Bible study. We decided to study something else that quarter, but I did skim through this at least enough to recommend it to my group. A study to help women let go and let God.

My Sunday School class decided to read this book and discuss it each week. I was amazed at this book and how it gives great insight for women. Linda Dillow has a way of keeping your attention and wanting to go deeper in your walk with God, regardless of WHERE your walk is at the moment. Her weath of knowledge and stories of her life and other lives gives you the sense of, "God IS WITH ME, and HE DOES have a plan." Very touching book and I feel that ALL women, young and old, should read this book. She touches on issues that most all women struggle with. If onlys, what ifs, being content, etc. This book is a MUST read. One you should read over and over again! ( )

Women worry a lot. We worry about our children, our friends, our careers, our families, our spouses-the list could go on and on. Yes, we want to be content and trust God with our worries, but it's a struggle to let go and free ourselves from the burden of anxiety.… (more)
