When Anxiety Strikes: Help and Hope for Managing Your Storm  -     By: Jason Hobbs

Manage or prevent anxiety using faith-based methods

"Fear not." "Do not be afraid." "Peace be with you." Phrases like these appear in the Bible more often than almost any other proclamation. We long to follow these commands. Yet for many, something inside us is wary, ready for anything and everything to go wrong. In fact, a quarter of Americans struggle with anxiety disorders--and Christians are not immune.

Jason and Dena Hobbs are familiar with this struggle, professionally and personally--Jason as a clinician, Dena as someone with anxiety, and both as pastors of congregations full of anxious people. They also know the shame and confusion that so often accompany these disorders, especially for people who think their faith should be strong enough to overcome these struggles. With their deep understanding, they've written When Anxiety Strikes, an eight-week guide to managing anxiety, grounded in both Scripture and research.

Structured for daily reading, with integrated practices for everyday life, the book addresses seven themes: breath, body, movement, mind, change, spirit, and community. Concise stories, readings, questions, and activities guide readers to tackle the realities of living with anxiety. When Anxiety Strikes offers real solutions to find a solid landing place when the storm of fear looms.

My Thoughts:
When Anxiety Strikes is the perfect book for the time we are all living in. Nothing like a worldwide pandemic to strike anxiety. Whether you anxious about basic living needs or whether you'll have a job next month, this book will help every reader to learn new ways to tackle anxiety. This book is a great tool that I recommend everyone read and keep on their shelf, while referring from time to time. The techniques are great and are founded on biblical principles, which I appreciate in terms of helping the reader. I highly recommend this book. It is a very simple read, but important read. I especially think this book is important if you have children. It is such a great resource!
