Calm your Cares!!

I am a huge fan of pastor and author, Max Lucado.  In his book, Trade Your Cares for Calm, he has written another wonderful book.  This book is really more of an inspirational / devotional book.  There are few people who don't feel anxious and overwhelmed at times in life, and this book seeks to quell the cares of burdens of this world so that we would experience calmness through God.

This book is very sturdy and the pages are strong and rugged, they are glossy.  The book has a sense of strength and power when you hold it because of its weight.  Yet, the book is basically a square 6" x 6" book.

There are 10 chapters focusing on helping the reader reduce their cares in place of God's clam.

The focus of the book is found in the word CALM.  For Lucado it is found in Philippians 4:6-8.  CALM is an acronym meaning ~

  • C - Celebrate God's Goodness “Rejoice in the Lord always” (Verse 4)
  • A - Ask God For Help “Let your requests be made known to God” (Verse 6)
  • L - Leave your Concerns with Him “With thanksgiving . . . “ (Verse 6)
  • M - Meditate on good things “Think about the things that are good and worthy of praise” (Verse 8)

This is the method Lucado uses to help the reader.  The book has many practical tips to help the reader calm their fears and anxieties.  This book would look very nice on someone's coffee table and would make for a very nice present. 

I highly recommend this book.

I received this book from the booklookblogger in exchange for an honest review.
