"Overcoming Anxiety" shows the reader how to beyond short-term fixes and achieve long-term recovery. The recommended activities at the end of each chapter show how to apply the ideas and skills described in the chapter so the focus shifts from the messenger (the symptoms of anxiety) to the message (the core causes of anxiety) and deal with them directly.
Whether you have an explosive temper or are brooding over suppressed anger, the questionnaires, step-by-step exercises, and strategies outlined in Anger: Taming the Beast will teach you how to change the way you experience and express anger.
Why did God make us this way? How are we supposed to manage this wonderful and mystifying gift we call emotions? In his new book "Why Did God Give Us Emotions?" Author Reneau Peurifoy takes a detailed look at the many sources of our emotional responses and the role emotions play in our thoughts, actions, relationships with others and relationship with God.
