ABILENE, Texas, Oct. 16, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Stress has become an epidemic. Seventy-five percent of the general population experiences at least "some stress" every two weeks (National Health Interview Survey). Stress contributes to heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, and other illnesses in many individuals. Despite the clear toll that stress is taking on our health and well-being, many seem unable to find a cure. Stressed-Less Living: Finding God's Peace in Your Chaotic World, written by Tracie Miles, author and speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries, offers life-changing, heart-renewing, and long-lasting remedies that will bring peace, even when things feel out of control.
"Author Tracie Miles is right -- 'stress is a killer!'" says Lucinda Secrest McDowell, author of Role of a Lifetime and speaker with EncouragingWords.net and IronSharpensIronWomen.org. "Stressed-Less Living is sure to breathe new life into countless women who are slowly dying from overwhelming demands from without and within."
Tracie Miles, in this breakthrough book, helps women unload the pressure cooker of life and learn to rely on the peace that Christ promises all those who come to Him. Tracie maintains that the direction many women receive today is attached to temporary helps like meditation, relaxation strategies, breathing exercises, and support groups. Stressed-Less Living unpacks the truth found in Scripture about how to overcome fear, anxiety, and uncertainty, and shows the stressed-out woman how she can not only survive stress, but thrive in spite of it through faith in the promises of God.
