For others, negativity is something that only sneaks up from time to time, yet still wreaks havoc in their hearts. Regardless of the root causes, once pessimistic thoughts permeate our minds, our feel ...more

I really enjoyed this book because it reminds readers that everyone is struggling with something in their lives. Throughout the book, the author shares a variety of stories, each one describing a difficult situation that someone has gone through and then gives practical ways of dealing with different emotions. In each chapter there is also scripture listed that goes along with that particular topic. The author also provides stories about herself throughout the book. Some of the topics the book c ...more

The way we handle challenges can affect how we live and how we relate to others. In Unsinkable Faith, the author gives true stories of different situations people have experienced. Each story is unique. This book shows practical ways of dealing with our emotions. Scripture references and chapter challenges allow the reader to think deeper. Reading this book reminds us that we are not alone in life. Everyone has struggles. Unsinkable Faith is great for study groups and for individual study. This ...more

This is the best book I have read in some time on how to develop a more optimistic attitude. Miles provides practical instruction about how to develop a positive mind, leading to a more positive life resulting in unsinkable faith. She combines her own story with scientific research and biblical insights.

Miles did not want to be a negative and bitter person as the result of an unwanted divorce after 25 years of marriage. She began to talk with Jesus. She realized she could not change her circumst

I’ll be the first to admit it — I don’t have unsinkable faith. Though I’d like to think I’m tough, when the waters of life start to rise, I start flailing. Like Peter trying to walk to Jesus over the sea, my attention is focused on anything and everything that could go wrong. Consumed with negative thoughts and worse-case scenarios, my own doubts, fears, and insecurities weigh me down like a sack of rocks tied to my feet. It’s only when I’m gasping for breath and nearly gone under that I finally ...more

Unsinkable Faith offers hope and encouragement to a hurting soul. The book is full of stories about the author herself, along with stories of other women who have gone through storms and trials. I really enjoyed reading this book. At the end of each chapter there are Chapter Challenges, and the author lists several Bible verses of hope and encouragement to meditate on, write down and/or memorize. I really loved the verses the author chose to use with each chapter.
The author talks about the way w

I really enjoy reading this book. After a long day, I can read it and apply all the concepts to what is currently going on in my life. Everything Tracey talks about hit home in some way, shape, or form. I definitely recommend reading this to anyone who wants to rewire the way they think or to anyone who wants to feel inspired.

I would say this book is for anyone who has ever found themselves stuck in a pit of negativity. I'm willing to bet that's been all of us at some point or another. Tracie Miles does a wonderful job of conveying her own personal struggles with self-condemnation and negative thinking and allowing God to renew her mind and transform her thinking. Tracie uses a 3 point method. 1)notice the negative thoughts, 2) reject the negative thought, and 3) replace the negative thought. Her book guides you step ...more

So I want to start by saying the only reason I didn't give this 4 stars was because I dislike reading books that have devotional and assignments at the end of each chapter ... and NOT knowing this before the end of the first chapter. This will be better the second time I read it when I know how I need to read it.

That being said I did love the content. It's a great spiritual read to reset your faith and transform your relationship with God.

Have you ever been stuck in a pit of negative thinking and couldn't force yourself to change your thinking pattern? I have! In her new book, Unsinkable Faith, Tracie Miles gives us the reassurance that we are not alone. When life happens, and brings us the not so pleasant circumstances that are beyond our control, we can easily become consumed with negative thoughts. The more we think, the more negative our thoughts become. The enemy of our souls will play games in our minds that can lead us to ...more

Do you struggle with a negative thought-life? In her warm, authentic voice, Tracie Miles offers encouragement for claiming a positive outlook, no matter how difficult your current circumstance may be. She writes about her own tough challenges with tact and humility. She also shares stories of many overcomers, using Bible stories and stories of friends from her own life. As one who has struggled with negativity most of my life, I enjoy this multifaceted look at ways to develop a positive, hopeful ...more

Started strong, with thoughts and ideals I could identify with, but I'm one of those people who gets distracted easily. This book was full of examples of poor copyediting. Using too/to in the wrong context, run on sentences, etc. I lost respect for the author and publisher with each chapter, and ultimately could not finish the book. While her message is from the heart, and I appreciate her courage to share her story, there are many other books out there about faith thru trials that are more thou ...more

All of us encounter stormy seasons in life, some more severe than others. In Unsinkable Faith, Tracie shares her story, along with stories from other women who have endured despite the storm. They not only endured, but kept a positive attitude along the way.

“We can give up or we can God-up.”

Tracie gives practical applications for unsinkable faith with her “tools for the trip” including studying God’s Word, prayer, strategies for transforming your thinking, and a challenge at the end of each cha

As storms come up in my life, I focus on the storm, not Jesus. I read this book to learn how to have that kind of faith where I don't even look at the storm. This book delivered! It showed me the areas where I was sabotaging my walk with Jesus and my faith. I'm so glad I read this!

If you are someone who deals with negative thought patterns or a lot of negative circumstances in your life, this is the book for you. It has a lot of practical wisdom, which a lot of books promised, but don't deliver. This book delivers! I would encourage you to get the journal that goes with the book, especially if you have areas you want to work on, because this journal is going to challenge you to do the work. If you read this book and do the work in the journal, your life is about to change ...more

This helpful book is packed with good advice about how to get rid of old habits of negative thinking, which will transform not your circumstances but how you see them and cope with them. Recommended.

Feelings...nothing more than feelings. We all have 'em and in our hard places it is so easy for them to be magnified, controling our thoughts and actions. There's no doubt about it, life is hard, but we don't have to live in a place of negativity and lack simply because we're not managing our thought life properly. I'm so thankful for the fresh look at the power of daily, Biblical renewal of our minds as presented by Tracie Miles in the pages of Unsinkable Faith. Filled with practical tips, Scri ...more

Help noticing your negative thoughts, so you can take them captive, and replace them with God’s truths.

Have you ever struggled with negative thinking and felt like you were unable to change that pattern of behavior? It is easy to become consumed with negative thoughts. The more we focus on them, the more the cycle continues. Miles’s latest strives to help the reader break that cycle by taking the thoughts captive and turning them over to Jesus. The key is to focus on Jesus’ truths instead of what the enemy is telling you. Two powerful tools are required: God’s Word and prayer.
