My Review:
 The stress of daily life could truly make you sick, not just with something minor such as a cold but something more advanced that could lead to say a heart attack or much, much worse. Dr. Steven Haymon, has written
a very inspiring book on how we can overcome stress that could lead to a debilitating illness by relying on God and his teachings fully and completely. The author has done an excellent job talking us through these different stressors and what we are to do when faced with impossible setbacks in our lives, where if we make the wrong decisions concerning them, they can lead to devastating loss. 

 This book is an essential right now, because with everything going on in this world, we tend to lose focus. God is always withing a prayer's reach if we would just trust Him to take care of us then stress could be a thing of the past.
