Reviewed by Richard R. Blake

Powerful Stories and Life Lessons, For Facing, Worry, Anxiety, and Struggle

In her book “Winning the Worry Battle” Barb Roose takes the reader on a journey with Joshua in facing the battle of worry.  Barb uses stories and powerful life lessons from Joshua’s life to confront: daily struggles of fear and winning more significant actions in victory while experiencing a radical transformation of peace by adopting a God-centered perspective.

Barb’s tools, techniques, and behaviors will resonate with readers overwhelmed by the stress of uncertainty and anxiety. “Winning the Worry Battle” can be used as a six week Bible study, for group or personal use. A helpful study guide is available for additional hints for making  applications from the life of Joshua as he leads the Israelites into God’s Promised Land; as he claimed victory over hostile trials, fear, and uncertainty by learning to move forward in fighting the battle in faith, and exploring the unlimited power of God available to His followers.

Readers will be equipped and encouraged with practical tools for overcoming worry, and personal struggles, as well as the more significant battles of fear that we face. Barb’s incredible insight and practical advice are simple and easy to apply personally.

 A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

Highly recommended.
