Words of help and hope form the Bible for both Christians and non-Christians who feel anxious.
Whether mildly, moderately or severely, feeling anxious is something most of us experience at some point in our lives. It drags us down and it leaves us unequipped for the day ahead.
This short, sympathetic, and warm book will help both Christian and non-Christian readers understand anxiety better, learn some useful techniques to cope with it, and, most importantly, show how the living God can liberate us from its grip.
Whether you are used to reading about God or not even sure if he really exists (or if he cares about your anxiety in any meaningful way), this book has precious words of encouragement for you.
“As you read, it is my prayer that you will come to see real hope and take the first few steps in a lifetime of change.” Helen Thorne, author.

Helen Thorne has provided a concise and helpful guide to managing your anxiety. As a struggler herself, she wisely pays attention to both body and soul while being a compas- sionate voice that you will relate to. Practical techniques coupled with a strong Redeemer are just what we need and what she offers.
Those struggling with anxiety need a resource that is short, relatable... and actually useful. Helen has delivered this and more. I appreciate her realistic perspective and rich teaching: though our anxiety may be a daily battle, we do not fight alone but in the strength that God supplies and with his ever-present help. Highly recommend this!
This warm, grace-filled, sympathetic book will be a help to many. Helen Thorne sits at the reader’s side and walks them gently through wonderful Bible truth. The book is earthed in experience, informed by counselling skills and written in an easy-to-read style. I recommend it warmly.
Many people are struggling with their mental health, especially anxiety. We are living in very anxious times and it could be given to anyone who is afflicted with anxious thoughts and feelings. Helen writes with grace, compassion, wisdom and knowledge as a trained counsellor. Her writing puts the reader at ease, whilst providing helpful information about anxiety, practical tips to cope, and points ultimately to God who is our true hope in an anxious world.
I’m very glad that I’d had ordered this book.
Super helpful. Surprisingly Easy-to-read for such a sensitive topic.
7-10minutes per chapter, Personably insightful.
Will speak to the hearts of everyone, while it feeling like it’s speaking just to you.
I have already given copies to 3 people and I will come back to it again very soon.
I bought this book because as a mother I have suffered the consequences of having a highly anxious daughter and I thought it might be helpful. It surpassed my expectations. Because it is written by someone who has suffered herself and therefore understands completely the struggles, the pain, the effects on others and the way anxiety can cause people to go to any lengths to remove the problem. I found it so helpful in understanding why my daughter had been behaving the way she had, and in continuing to understand the issues for her. It is a must read for anyone who is suffering from anxiety or for any parent who has children suffering from it. It removes the lie that if you are Christian you shouldn't be suffering with such things but also gives encouragement that it doesn't need to stay that way, whilst at the same time acknowledging that becoming a following of Christ does not mean that suddenly the anxiety will go. For many, it will be a case of managing the anxiety better and some will overcome the difficulties more than others. But the book looks at six lies which people with anxiety can end up believing and she wonderfully destroys these with hope from God's promises in the scriptures. I found it so enlightening, encouraging, engaging and spiritually uplifting.
