it was amazing
bookshelves: 2010, self-help, spirituality, inspirational

Prior to reading this, I didn't know that is was a Christianity based self-help book. The information in this book has been rehashed in The Secret and many other self-help books. Why? Because it works.

I don't know when cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) was introduced, but this books has lots of techniques from that as well, and CBT has been proven to help eliminate anxiety and depression.

In summary, one has to renew our thoughts and speech and this will in turn change our thinking process, which in turn will eliminate worry and inner strife.
