5.0 out of 5 stars This book stays at my fingertips at all times Aug. 27 2003
Format:Paperback
Imagine what your life would be like without worry....
This 12 week bible study will help you on that journey. You begin with chapter 1 - My Journey to Contentment, then move on to Content with Circumstances, Content to Be Me, Content in Relationships, Never Enough, A Faulty Focus, Worry Is Like a Rocking Chair, Faith: The Foundation, Trusting God with the What Ifs, Trusting God with the If Onlys, and Trusting God with the Whys.
Each chapter has a personal story of other women searching to toss worry out the window and grasp true contentment. At the back of the book is the Bible Study. Each week had less than a dozen questions to answer regarding the weeks reading. They recommend you write 3 things in your journal - 1) What did I learn about God this week? 2) What did I learn about myself? 3) Write a prayer to remember what God has taught you.
This is a book I could read over and over and still find nuggets of truth and inspiration. So if you are tired of worrying and want to experience calm and contentment promised in scripture, this book is truly what you are looking for
I have read this book more than once and keep it on my nightstand when I need a gentle reminder to be calm and content.

Format:Paperback
For thirteen years I've struggled and watched my women friends struggle with anxiety vs. peace, worry vs. calm, control vs. submission, emptiness vs. letting God fill the hole in our hearts. I found myself unable to put this book down, yet having to as I would become overwhelmed by my need to talk to God. As I turned the pages and the chapters, I was blessed by the way the personal experiences shared by Linda pointed my eyes to God rather than to her. She shares so many scriptures, revealing how they minister to my anxious heart, that at times I felt like I was reading a well-annotated Bible. While reading this book, you will get the distict feeling that Linda is sitting next to you, with a Bible in one hand and your hand in the other, teaching you how to be a woman at peace with God and yourself. The book ends with a moving letter in which Linda states she is praying for you, the reader, that God will minister to you. Read the book and let God minister--when you get to her letter, you will know she's still praying. Thanks, Linda! God is answering your prayers for this reader. I have joined in your prayers as I send this book to every woman I know who also has an anxious heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars My heart is a calmer place Feb. 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I return to this book so often. Why? Because it truly calms my heart. Last year my bible study group chose this book for weekly study. At the same time, I returned to work full-time due to my husband being unemployed. My life was full of anxiety. The lessons in this book reminded me that I am right where God wants me to be. My life is the way it is because of him. Trusting God is challenging when faced with challenging times. The material provided in this book reminded me to focus on what God was trying to teach me through life experiences, rather than the "tragedy" I thought it was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peace in the Midst of my Storms May 20 2004
Format:Paperback
I've been a believer for 14 years, and this book has had a profound impact on my spritual growth this year. Scripturally grounded insights helped me recognize several areas of discontent in my life. I completed the book over the past year with a prayer partner, (one chapter every 2 weeks) and we both want to go thru it again. It is easy to read (I'm often distracted by kids), and the questions caused me to delve further into my "issues" and God's promises. I am buying several copies for friends that will benefit from this as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for anxious Christians! Nov. 14 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
As one who has read virtually EVERYTHING out there about worry and anxiety, I find this book to be an absolute gift from God. It is well-written, scriptually-based, and personal. The author, a former missionary, discusses her own struggles with worry and anxiety--very humbling. But this book will give you something to work on as you read it. It's not just a "good read." It's a life-changing book including a 12-week study at the end that asks you to keep reviewing the book, the scriptures, and the plan God has for your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Life without worry! July 20 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
We all long for contentment and calm in our everyday lives, yet seldom find either. This twelve week study has begun to lead me to a place of calm through listening more closely to GOD's teachings. Linda Dillow has given practical exercises in the word that leads to a more fulfilled and content life as a wife, mother, teacher and friend. Trusting God totally is the theme from this excellent study. I also purchased the Mercies Journal and have found it a real meaningful practice each day. This study has been life changing for me.

A excellent book that views being contempt with all the blessings that god has given to women. It teaches a women to appreciate life as a precious gift of god. That also, it is god in control and he blesses us with many gifts. Greed is analized and it isn't how much material things that one has but being happy with what god has given you!The book is also a bible study with several references to the bible in it. I would recommend it to any women looking for a deeper fulfilment and understanding of thier life.
