eZine #62: The Journey Beyond Anxiety and Worry

September eZine: Fear is a Liar—The Journey Beyond a Life of Worry

September can be a time of great change for many. Kids heading back to school, families facing busier schedules, and everyone adjusting to the changing of seasons. This month we pray our resources listed here will help guide and support you through any of the challenges you might be facing.

Our feature article shares Dana Currie’s brave journey of overcoming fear and anxiety and the strategies she found so helpful. Many lives are riddled with some form of incessant worry, anxiety or dread. Fear can be debilitating, devastating and so destructive. Some of the angst we face may be due to difficult, real life situations but what about those relentless, inner fears that rob us of our daily joy and peace? What if worry paralyzes our ability to think and act wisely? It convinces us into thinking that something is true that isn’t. Fear is a liar! Read on for more insite and valuable tips.
