Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. It is important that you grasp this concept while you read "Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia and Fear: Six Weeks to Change, A Biblical Plan for Anxiety Management and Changing Your Life!" by Pastor Henry Bechtold and Nathan Stockwell otherwise you will think this is just another self help book and not take into consideration the power behind the words.
This is a Bible based inspiring self help book that may be written for individuals who experience anxiety, depression et al as the title reveals however its’ practical tips can be applied to us all.
Before getting into the actual six weeks approach the writers establish a basis for change. With or without insomnia: prayer, exercise, rest, the words you speak and a few other concepts mentioned must be examined and the necessary corrections made before real change can occur.  
I am not plagued with any of the difficulties mentioned in the books’ title  I do experience stress from time to time and I can tell you that reading "Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia and Fear: Six Weeks to Change, A Biblical Plan for Anxiety Management and Changing Your Life!"  was beneficial.
As I mentioned faith comes by hearing the good news is that along with the numerous Bible verses shared in Part III there is a FREE audio available to download.  The mp3 audio is available at the  SIX WEEKS TO CHANGE website. The combination of reading and hearing will facilitate your believing and subsequent change from a life of anxiety, depression, insomnia, fear or even stress to a life of joy and peace.

I recommend Six Weeks to Change not only for those having problems with discouragement but those who know of someone needing to be encouraged. Equally important is the accompanying audio.

PATRIOTS OF TREASON by David Thomas Roberts

    A good book captivates the reader’s attention within the first two paragraphs, an excellent book is when the reader  reaches the last page and realizes he has not done anything but read the book the entire day.  Patriots of Treason by David Thomas Roberts is better than excellent, I caution the reader to make sure you start this book when you have plenty of time.
    Patriots of Treason is a politically incorrect novel based on a “what if”.  What if the first black president created a crisis in order to guarantee that he would win his second term? What if his Attorney General bypassed the constitution in order to destroy the Tea Party? What if the White House manipulated the truth in order to carry out their political agenda?  “What if” the federal government messed with Texas?  
    By the time I reached page 68 of this 299 page novel I could no longer contain myself, I posted the following on Facebook: “I am reading a totally awesome book! Reading fast so I can write the review: Patriots of Treason by David Thomas Roberts. Conservatives will love it, Tea Partiers will agree with it, Liberals need to read it but will hate it. Oh, it’s fiction!”  Needless to say, I did not cook dinner, I was compelled to read the entire book in one day.
    Half way through this book I was ready to move to Texas!  After reading “Patriots of Treason ”  by David Thomas Roberts  you will know why they say: “Don’t mess with Texas!”

Yes, I recommend you buy this book! And please let your friends know about it as well.  Remember it is Fiction but I don’t think certain people will like it!

DOWNSIDE UP Transform Rejection Into Your Golden Opportunity by Tracey Mitchell

    Just because a book is written by a woman does not mean that it is just for women. “Downside Up: Transform Rejection into Your Golden Opportunity ” by Tracey Mitchell is categorized as: Religion/ Christian Life/Women’s Issues, though technically true for purposes of who should read it I would classify it as Self-Help/ Motivational.
    Maybe the chapter “Divas, Deceivers, and Drama Queens”  is not something men can directly relate to, unless of course they are married, have a daughter, have a sister or two or have female friends but this same chapter presents 7 questions everyone should ask themselves regarding the people they are around.  “Let’s be honest: we have made some rather hasty if not outright bad decisions when it comes to selecting friends or business associates.” (page 54)  Ms. Mitchell writes.  Is this something that only women have difficulty with?
    “Downside Up: Transform Rejection into Your Golden Opportunity ” well help you get out of the slump you are in if you are a sales person, or if you have just ended a long term relationship. Reading this book will help you evaluate various relationships as well as behaviors so that “it” will not happen again.
    The book is divided into chapters, 11 total. At the end of each chapter there are chapter principles, Words of Wisdom (a Bible Quote), a Power Quote and a plan of action.

    I recommend this book. It would be difficult to check this one out of the library because you will want to keep it.  xxx Marsha L. Randolph
