"Breaking the Fear Cycle"

"Breaking the Fear Cycle: how to find peace for your anxious heart." is such a great read!  We learn and hear that God that is in control and we should not be afraid, worry or be anxious; however that is much easier said than done.  However, we CAN find peace in God.  Maria addresses how to overcome fear for good in our lives.  Each chapter is devoted to a different aspect, beginning with what is our greatest fear, what do we fear in our lives.  Then there is a chapter focusing on how we each have a choice or whether to fear or not, and take action to overcome this fear; this was a chapter that really spoke to me.  Each chapter builds upon each other and this is not a book to rush through reading as there is so much good stuff in it!  Each chapter ends with reflection questions, that could be used individually or in a small group setting.  I like the My Journey section that concluded each chapter as well which helped to really personalize it for me.  One quote that really stood out to me is: "When fear and anxiety go, so goes worry.  When worry goes, our outlook on life changes too," LOVE this! I highly recommend this book to read!
