I appreciate that the author gets right to the heart of things with Scripture from the start. She also helps point the reader to an understanding that when we are feeling overwhelmed by the emotions surrounding a situation the only place to begin is by going to God and His Word. In a world where we are told to drive out the drama with any number of distractions, confronting it head on with God's help is a novel idea.
One of my favorite phrases came from chapter two where the author encourages us to trust God's script for our lives. Here she says, "And that, my friend, is where peace is found: in accepting - and trusting - God's script for our lives." This is not advice given in most circles. Most of the time we are told it's okay to dwell in the drama. We seek validity for our emotional upheavals without grace or peace. The reality for Christians should be very much the opposite. In the midst of the unexpected we should seek Him first, rely on His strength, and settle into His peace. We will still feel the emotions. They are not wrong to have, but they should not become the primary focus of our life and circumstance.
I highly recommend this book for women whether you find yourself in the midst of drama now, have ever experienced struggles, or think you might sometime in the future have difficulty struggling to cope. This is also a useful tool for those who are walking along with someone who is having a hard time with overwhelming emotions. The godly council given here is excellent.
Cindi's book covers the what, where, when, why and how regarding emotions and expectations from others, and it biblically addresses the way to avoid the drama mindset and culture. Everyone and anyone can identify with this topic and will be intrigued to discover ways to diffuse drama moments and reset the tone in a discussion or a relationship.
Each chapter has subtitles that help highlight the next thought and will keep you drawn to the content. Scripture correlates throughout the pages as different emotions and reactions are addressed.
There is an area in the book that offers thoughts and questions to facilitate a small group study. There are also wonderful and concise helps in the back of the book which serve as quick checklists in order to avoid or diffuse drama. "Drama Free" is jam-packed with so many helpful tools and lessons. I particularly love how the author offers a point, a truth, a focus and a prayer at end of every chapter. There is no need to look any further because this book has it all within it's two hundred and thirty pages!
