Book Review: Breaking Anxiety’s Grip

Breaking Anxiety’s Grip by Dr. Michelle Bengtson

 

She’s done it again! I didn’t think Dr. Michelle Bengtson could top her first book–HOPE PREVAILS–but I was wrong. Hope Prevails is probably my favorite non-fiction book that I’ve read in the last five years. It’s premise is that depression has a spiritual component that can’t be ignored if you want to overcome the depression. When I was diagnosed with bilateral brain tumors and the consequences of them, depression reared its ugly head. This book helped me so much. If you’re facing any sort of a difficult situation, I highly recommend it.

Anyway, back to Dr. Bengtson’s new book–BREAKING ANXIETY’S GRIP.  In Breaking Anxiety’s Grip, Dr. Bengtson bravely shares her own struggles with worry, anxiety, and fear. And how she overcomes them through God’s Word.
God never promised that life would be easy, but He does promise to never forsake us. This book both teaches and inspires to trust God, no matter what life throws at us. Even if you don’t personally suffer from anxiety, there’s much to be learned from this book that will prepare you for when life does throw that curve ball at you.
On a personal note, I’ve come to understand just how important God’s Word is in this journey we call life. The Bible is so much more than just a book, it’s the key to accessing God’s power, developing a more intimate relationship with God, and living the life God created us for. After reading these two books from Dr. Bengtson, I believe she agrees with that philosophy as well.
I highly recommend this book.
