The pace and pressures of modern life can be very hectic. Crises of all kinds are common. Stress is a result of nervous tension caused by the environmental and psychological factors of these everyday hardships.
"Reducing Stress and Finding Peace", the revised version of the best-seller Overcoming Stress, is written in the belief that if you or someone you care about suffers from unhealthy levels of stress it can and should be overcome. Stress is an invitation to change and to grow. If we learn to cope with stress in the light of Gods providence, we will get by much better.
