How can we stop worrying and start living an anxiety-free life? As you’ll learn in Unworried: A Life Without Anxiety, the answer isn’t “just pray more” or “just read more Scripture” or, worst of all, “just stop worrying.” If we learn to respect how God made us, we can build new habits of thinking, communicating, and acting that will help set us free from worry.
Who hasn’t, at some point in their life, felt tired, stressed, anxious or undervalued? The answer to overcoming all of these is to live an authentic and meaningful life.

It comes from knowing that – despite success or failure – you were created by God for greatness, for love and to be loved.
