More from Dr. Andrea

I wrote Victory over Anxiety: Take your Anxious Thoughts Captive, as a path to my own healing. I have struggled with anxiety much of my life. As I researched the most effective techniques to combat my anxiety, and found how beneficial they were, I decided to write this book to help others learn practical tools, so they may also experience victory over anxiety. All the exercises I share are research based and filtered through a biblical perspective.

Not only will you learn everyday exercises to reduce your anxiety, but you will also begin to understand how and why your anxieties developed and how to rid yourself of those anxieties at their core. In addition, you can apply these principles to any emotional struggles, not just anxiety.

My Thoughts

Victory Over Anxiety is written by  Dr. Andrea Ganahl. I personally do not deal with a lot of anxiety, but some of my children do. I really enjoyed how the author broke anxiety down in ways that it could be understood. Anxiety is not something that is talked about a lot. I know that in the churches I have gone with, it is not really addressed. 

The book is nicely organized. The chapters open with a bible verse or a quote. The author does a good job unpacking the chapter/topic. She uses a good mix of personal experiences, scientific explanation and most importantly what the Bible says. I thought the chapters flowed nicely. I chose to use this as a devotion type book. Breaking each day down as a chapter so that I could pray and make sure I understood what God wanted me to about the book I was reading.

This is a great book to read with a small group. It really helps you understand how to understand Anxiety. I understood a little more where some of my children (adult and minor) struggles. Thank you to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
