The Anxious Mom eBook is Here!

No pranks or practical jokes here! The Anxious Mom eBook is ready!

I can't tell you the excitement I have over sharing this 1 year journey with all of you!

What began with a delicate "dipping of my toe" into studying scripture about anxiety and fear has grown into a full-fledged eBook that has not only helped me, but--I've been told-- has spoken to others as well.

I pray that all who read this will come away with a renewed sense of trust and faith in God and an understanding of His sovereignty. 


Below are some responses I've received from a few brave souls who proofed and edited The Anxious Mom (Thank you to Ginny from Joy from Grace, Alison from A Walk in Faith, and Kate from Heading Home):

Introduction
I could count on both of my hands...and both of the hands on every person 
on this planet...how many times I've felt anxious. It's grown over the past
year or so to a point that I knew I had to make a change or I was headed to a
breakdown.
God's really been working on my heart. He's been bringing things to my 
attention and putting them slowly in my path for a while, but lately it has
been at break-neck speed. I have learned so much about fear and anxiety.

A big part of what I've learned is how common anxiety is among us. And 
most surprisingly, how common it is in women. Many of us worry about our
kids to the point of distraction. Of course, you'd never know that just from
looking at us or even from having a casual conversation with us. No, we're
very careful to keep those "crazy" feelings tucked away while we're in 
public. 


We hide behind the illusion of a smiling face, a full social calendar, and
Christian buzz words like "blessed" and "faith." It's usually not until the sun
goes down, and the house sits still and quiet, that we allow those feelings to
slowly crawl up our throats and threaten to spill out of us in heaving sobs.
Our chests clench and the thoughts that run through our heads are worse
than any horror movie we've ever seen. 

Even though the details of our thoughts might be different, the feeling is all
the same: a sense of being out-of-control. It’s a nameless, faceless,
unsubstantiated fear about our children's or loved one’s safety and well-
being.

For so long I have merely held the horror down and kept it at bay. But
now...God is getting me ready to look the beast in the eye.

I'm taking this on.

I'm going to look right at it and walk right through
it.

I'm scared. Which is almost funny if you think about it: I'm afraid to face my
fear…of fear. But I have to. I need healing and I feel like I need to get these
things I'm learning down on paper (so to speak) so someone else may
benefit.

For the next several chapters, I’ll share with you the posts I wrote about my 
struggle with anxiety (they appeared on my blog Suburban Stereotype). Bear
with me. Basically, I'll be lying on the "couch" and you'll be the proverbial
fly on the wall.
