Overwhelmed: Winning the War Against Worry by Perry NobleStressed out? Anxious? Overwhelmed? Good news--youre not alone!
No one ever said life was going to be easy.

In times like these, its tempting to just throw in the towel and quit. Well, dont do it!
Perry Noble has stood at the edge of the abyss himself, and in Overwhelmed, he shares the keys to unlocking the chains of anxiety and despair once and for all. Building on the premise that when we shift our focus from our circumstances to Christ, everything changes, Perry walks readers through a life-altering plan for overcoming stress, worry, depression, and anxiety so we can be free to enjoy the abundant, joy-filled lives we were created for.

You skip breakfast. Your laundry basket is a Mt. Everest of dirty clothes. Your loved one is in the hospital.

For those days when things feel upside down, hopeless, or just completely non-stop, here are 25 scriptures to bring you peace in the storms of life. Guest post by Julie of Be Whole, Mom. I remember the very early years of marriage and then soon after motherhood, when I felt completely exhausted , unsure of anything, and like I had been thrown into the deep end of life without even a pair of arm cuff floats to help keep my head above water. Oh, I was overwhelmed , and empty of joy. I thought I had to know everything about being a godly wife and mother before I even began that journey, so when the pressures and demands of these portions of my life came in droves, I did not know what to do.
