Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Life is too short to waste it worrying. As the old saying goes, "A person who worries about death, dies a thousand times while the rest of us must only die once." I come from a long line of worriers, and it’s been one of my quests in life to find a cure. Wouldn’t it be wonderful never to worry again? Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you didn’t have to live in fear? What if I told you it was possible!

There is a cure for worry, and it doesn’t involve drugs. Granted, some people, through no fault of their own, are prone to worry for chemical or genetic reasons, but I’m not one of those people. While I believe this book could even be useful for someone with a mental disorder, this book is written for the average person. It’s written for all those people out there like me who have a bad habit of worrying because that’s what we grew up watching our mothers do.

More About the Author

Marnie L. Pehrson is a best-selling author, speaker and online publicist who helps Light Bearers deliver messages that lead people out of bondage into freedom in all aspects of their lives. She is the creator and Marnie is also the mother of 6 and the author of 23 fiction and nonfiction titles.

Marnie has been writing books since 1994, but she didn't branch into fiction until 2003. Largely influenced by her friend and colleague, Marcia Lynn McClure, Marnie took her first attempt at fiction with a story about one of her favorite ancestors. She pitched the idea for "The Patriot Wore Petticoats" to her distributor in June of 2003, and had the novel virtually finished by September. A labor of love, the story of Marnie's 4th Great Grandmother, Dicey Langston, came in flashes of inspiration that flowed into a story that is now required reading at Langston Charter Middle School in Greenville, SC.

Once Marnie dipped her toe into fiction, she never wanted to leave. Other Southern novels followed including "Waltzing with the Light," "Rebecca's Reveries," "Beyond the Waterfall," "Angel and the Enemy," "In Love We Trust / Second Sight," "An Uncertain Justice" and two titles in the Granite LoveNotes series, "Hannah's Heart" and "Savannah Nights"

Marnie is an avid enthusiast of family history. She integrates elements of the places, people and events of her Southern family and heritage into her historical fiction novels. Marnie's life is steeped in Southern history from the little town of Daisy that she grew up in (the setting for "Waltzing with the Light") to the 24 acres bordering the famous Chickamauga Battlefield upon which her family resides. The Chickamauga Battlefield inspired "Rebecca's Reveries," "In Love We Trust" and Marnie's best-seller "Angel and the Enemy" (December 2006).

Marnie continues to write non-fiction inspirational as well - focusing on helping people live true to themselves and their divine purposes on this planet. Two of her recent nonfiction titles: "Trust Your Heart: Transform Your Ideas Into Income" and "Trust Your Heart: Building Relationships That Build Your Business" both became #1 Amazon Mover and Shakers.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I don't normally post reviews for books I buy on Amazon (and I buy a lot of them). I'm not an associate of the author, I've never even talked to her. But this is one of the best books I've read and I highly recommend it. Marnie combines her own experiences with the truth from The Bible which makes for a great read. I, like many people, have been struggling with figuring out how to find out how and when to be on track in my walk with God. Like many people, I was at a point where I was beaten down and frustrated, trying to figure out how to get up and running and still be in God's will. This book has helped me do that. It's not a hard book to read; it goes rather smoothly and is really enjoyable. I felt very comfortable reading it, knowing Marnie had walked in my shoes and she still relied on solid Bible scriptures to get her point across. Most people could probably read this in one day if they wanted to, but what's great is you can pick it up and read it again and again and always get new insights. I loved this book; I decided to order another of Marnie's books because it must be just as good. The price is reasonable for any budget, and it' is more than worth the price.
