Editorial Reviews


"Dr. Linda gives us practical ideas we can use to help ourselves. You will find this book to be honest, down-to-earth, and always pointing to the truths we find in God and His Word. She shows us God's tools for letting go of worry--that if we apply them and not just skim over them, we will soon find worry's claws loosening their grip and contentment gaining ground.
"Go ahead--buy this book. Read it and change your life as you let go of worry."
--Ruth Graham, author, Bible teacher, conference speaker, founder of Ruth Graham & Friends

Format: Paperback
We live in trying times and reading, "Letting Go of Worry" is a great way to remind ourselves that at the end of the day, there are things we can control and things that we can't control and things that we just have to wait out and be patient about; However, being human, its hard to not want to see results now, instead of waiting.

For many, worry, seems to be our first nature; No matter what happens, that is the first thing we do, before finding out if there was something to even worry about and with, Linda Mintle's, "Letting Go of Worry", the reader is introduced to biblical based ways to stop worrying, really, stop worrying, and find ways to work through the issues that weigh heavily on our minds.

Like many good books that recognize that not all things are easily, "self-fix", Linda does remind that,"If you feel you have excessive worry or worry to the point that it interferes with your everyday living, consider seeing a mental-health therapist trained in treating anxiety disorders. An evaluation can help determine if your worry has become anxiety. Anxiety disorders are treatable. There is help."

"Letting God of Worry" are for the issues that are manageable on one's own and unlike anxiety disorders, that really, needs the guidance and help of a trained professional, there are steps for everyday worrying that with work and prayer, can be worked through and the individual can learn how to manage.

What Linda Mintle covers are things such as:
the spiritual roots of worry
· what to do when anxious thoughts arise
· how to have peace about their health, job, money, and relationships
· practical ways to cultivate a truly worry-free life
· the biblical secret to lasting contentment

This isn't a cure all....

I must say this is a splendid self help book. Whenever you go back to your worry problem, start reading the book again.
Dr. Linda tells it based on scripture and illustration and holds one's interest, also. Thanks to her we can put it all in God's hands
and move on with our life.

Format: Paperback
By incorporating research about worry, anxiety, and fear and personal examples of those who have struggled with these, this book is bound to make an impact in the lives of its readers. This book is full of highly practical advice for dealing with these commonly accepted struggles. We appreciate the Worry-Free Exercises noted at the end of each chapter to help the reader with applying the discussed principles. Not only does this book help readers acknowledge the impact of worry in their lives, but also prompt them to make immediate changes in this area through application and adjustment. This book is deeply rooted in the Scriptural truth yet also challenges readers to examine various aspects of our lives such as our thoughts, diet, health, money, job, and relationships. This book is an excellent tool for a godly life that God intends us to live!

By Dr. Linda Mintle (Harvest House Publishers, 2011)

Before even opening the front cover of this book, your eyes will venture to the tranquil environment adorned on the cover, featuring a gorgeous butterfly gently resting on a beautiful blossoming flower.

This book discusses most of the common worries that reverberate within people's minds today. Through directly mentioning these core worries and discussing possible solutions to reduce these obtrusive and unproductive thoughts, this book could assist you in reducing the amount of mental energy you utilize on them.

Encouragement and ways to find peace are interwoven into this book. This book is not a complete, end-all to worry, but it might help to assist you in finding peace, while strengthening your relationship with God. Bible verses are printed in the back of this book.
