I always enjoy reading books by Charles Stanley. This book seemed to come at a good time in my life with various things taking place that have caused me anxiety. "Jesus is in control" is one of the things I need to remember when faced with a situation that I view as potentially bad. Often times God uses those very situations to bring about something I never expected. I too often have self centered desires which in my infinite wisdom I feel should be met. It often takes me a while to see God at w ...more
I always struggle with worrying, especially at night because I just lay in bed worrying over every little thing. It's horrible because it keeps me up for hours at night. I told my mom this and she told me that I should pray and ask God for peace. So at night I do my devotions before bed and pray and I can tell you, it works, it really does work. About a week later I was looking at books on Amazon and found this book. I was so happy that I found this book because I love Charles Stanly's books and ...more

Dr. Stanley draws from personal experience and the Scriptures as he teaches about contentment and the real, and lasting peace of God. Is recommend the book for anyone who is struggling with fear, doubt and depression from circumstances, events, or any life challenges.
My first Charles Stanley book, I fell quickly in love with his writing. Finding Peace is a timely title for me and I think this book brought a lot of things to light that needed to be seen. I'm looking forward to reading more of Charles Stanley and I'd recommend this book to anyone in need of some peace and calm in their lives.
I adore Dr. Stanley. This is such an encouraging book and written in a really conversational, easy way. And I love that he chooses to focus on the Lord's sovereignty and reminds Christians not to make God small. (I always need to hear this, everyday.)
If you like Dr.Stanley's sermons you would like this book. Very plain spoken and straight forward advice. This is an encouraging and practical book about letting go of struggles that hold you back from God's peace.
We're all searching for peace and a way to deal with the regrets in our lives. Dr. Stanley does an excellent job of guiding you through these emotions to a place of acceptance and hope for the future.
