Book Review: Stressed-Less Living


It is something we all have in our lives. Some is good and some is bad.  Some is short lived and some lives with us for a long time. 

In her new book, Stressed-Less Living: Finding God's Peace in Your Chaotic World, Tracie Miles takes an honest look at stressors we encounter and how we become so numb to stress, we don't even realize we are stressed. 

Tracie discusses the impact that stress has on our lives, physical and emotional.  I appreciated the fact that she opened up and talked honestly about experiences in her life that caused stress. 

Throughout the book, Tracie focuses on scripture that we should lean on. She discusses people in the Bible that dealt with stress. 

I liked that each chapter ends with reflection questions and Stress Busting Scriptures. 

Even if you are like me and think that you've got everything under control, you will still enjoy this book. It will open your eyes in many ways. I like to think of myself as one that doesn't stress out. But when I read Tracie's chapter about parental stress, it really hit home. 

I received a free copy of this book for the purpose of review from Leafwood Publishers.
