Anxiety and Prayer

I love summer because I have more time to read and since I bought a Kindle I seem to be able to read a lot more often.  In the last couple of weeks I read two books which I enjoyed immensely and wanted to share.

The first book is Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow.  I owned a hard copy of this book for many years but it was sorely neglected and I gave it to a friend. Recently it was available as a free download for my Kindle so I figured I'd grab it and if I had time I would take a look at it again and I'm so glad I did.  This book can be read on your own or as a 12 week study with a group.  If you struggle with anxiety at all you will be blessed by this book.

The second book was recommended to me by my friend Lori at Deeper with Jesus in Rhode Island and she loaned the book to me (on my Kindle).  A Praying Life: Connecting with God in a Distracting World by Paul Miller is a life changing book.  This book has helped me to think about (and start to put in place) real ways to pray for not forget to pray for people and to pray without ceasing as in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.  I HIGHLY recommend this book.  I will likely end up buying it.

What are you reading?  I am currently reading, How to Have a H.E.A.R.T. For Your Kids by Rachel Carman for an upcoming TOS crew review.  Look for my first TOS crew review in about a month. :)

Thanks for the book reviews. I had put the second on in my cart. (I think I may have the first one unread somewhere too.) I am reading a book on being gluten free. Also reading a book by Clayton King on finding the sacred in the everyday. Its really good!
