I was so happy to have won this book in a giveaway. I probably never would've picked up a copy of it otherwise. I don't read a lot of nonfiction. I probably should read more of it; I've just always been more drawn to fiction. But anyway, this book was great. Filled with lots of helpful advice and words of wisdom for this chronic worrier.

My favorite chapter, and the one I'm going to strive to put into practice right now, was "What If...Wow." This really opened my eyes up to how often I always think and then prepare myself for the worst-case scenario to happen. Thinking, "What if...ugh" situations. But what I should be doing instead is thinking about all the "What!" moments that could happen. Starting with a positive attitude and thinking about all the wonderful things that could happen, instead of expecting everything to go wrong. This isn't gonna be easy, but I'm really gonna try. 

This was a really great book that's backed up with scripture. And while there were a few things I didn't quite agree with, this book as a whole was very helpful and full of lots of good tips. I highly recommend it to every woman. Everything in here might not apply to everyone, but it's well worth the read. I'm planning on reading it again soon. 

I won this book in a giveaway and voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and comments are my honest opinion.



  1. I should read this one...I've definitely been running exhausted and stressed lately. :)

    1. This has some really great tips. I'm hoping it will ease my stress and anxiety. Even just a little bit would help. :)
