This books surprised me with how necessary and helpful it was. Randy and Nanci did an amazing job of encouraging the reader to turn to the Lord and also revamp practical areas in their lives to better cope with stress. A must read for every woman!

***Stress plagues women in modern society like never before, learn simple ways to handle stress***

Randy & Nanci Alcorn’s book, Women Under Stress is the only book they collaborated on in Randy’s remarkable writing career. When the book released twenty-eight years ago women of all ages found wisdom and insight about the causes and effects of stress with suggestions on how to deal with it. Especially the “…wife of a Christian leader who said…it kept her from taking her life…”

This book started out strong and the prayer at the beginning of the text is worth the price of admission. It ends a bit weaker with more common sense than spiritual wisdom.

Practical steps for recognizing and managing stress in your life. This book dives into many areas that contribute to stress in our lives from inward battles to outside factors. Easy read and clear steps to help women under stress.

I am not a chronically stressed woman but I go in and out of seasons that are extremely stressful. This book helped me take inventory of how my choices, attitudes, and personality impact how I experience stress. As I read through the wide range of topics covered I could see areas of my life where I have made progress (like letting go of things that are outside my control and focusing on God who is sovereign) and where I can focus when my stress level raises to an unhealthy level (for example get ...more

I wouldn't normally have picked this up, but someone shared it as a free download for Kindle a while back. Overall, it was a good book and could be helpful for anyone dealing with stress, particularly moms of young children. It has the advice you would expect: don't over-commit, take care of yourself, rest, ask for help if needed, etc. Overall, it was a quick read, and I always enjoy Alcorn's writing. ...more

My summer book club did this book and I didn't love it. I don't really want to read a book called "Help for Women Under Stress" written mostly by a man. Sure, he claims his wife wrote along side him, but whatever. Separate from having that chip on my shoulder, I just generally didn't like it much. ...more

This book started with a bang and I was so encouraged. But, in the middle chapters, I felt a condescending tone at times, especially when talking to mothers who work outside the home.

Worth the read, but not different from other books about handing stress. I really wanted it to be!

There are many tips for de-stressing that were helpful reminders. I hope to use the tips for relaxation that they recommend.

I won this in a Goodreads Giveaway.

As a woman under stress, this certainly gave a few tips.
