Letting Go of Worry
Dr. Linda Mintle confesses that for years she believed worry was an inevitable byproduct of our modern, busy lives. But as she explored God’s Word for guidance, she discovered that worry isn’t supposed to be managed. It’s supposed to be released completely.
Through personal and biblical examples, Mintle reveals reasons and ways for readers to rethink their core beliefs as they surrender worry to God and discover:
· the spiritual roots of worry
· what to do when anxious thoughts arise
· how to have peace about their health, job, money, and relationships
· practical ways to cultivate a truly worry-free life
· the biblical secret to lasting contentment
With godly instruction, Scriptures for meditation, and the hope of a renewed perspective, readers can let go of worry and embrace a transformed life of peace, forgiveness, and faith.
I Love My Mother, But…
From her perspective as a Christian therapist with more than 20 years of experience in private practice, Mintle examines the difficulties inherent in the mother-daughter relationship as conventionally defined within U.S. culture. Addressed to women of all ages who want to forge a more intimate connection with their female parent, the author provides useful tools for coping with emotions and situations (beyond anger at obviously dysfunctional parenting) that prevent closeness, including a daughter’s extreme need for approval or an inability to detach emotionally from her mother (leading either to very distant or excessively close connections). Mintle’s practical advice is always alloyed by spiritual guidance. Anger-management techniques, for example, such as avoiding “nonessential triggers,” talking problems over with friends and learning how to be assertive are presented along with appropriate verses drawn from the Bible. In addition to more active strategies, Mintle consistently recommends prayer and acceptance as the road to deepening a mother-daughter bond. She is convinced that the spiritual act of forgiveness, for even the most abusive or dysfunctional mothers, is a worthy and self-healing goal for daughters. The book will be of most help to those who share the author’s deep religious commitment, which fans of her books on marriage, eating disorders and infertility will recognize.
Press Pause Before You Eat
For all the times you’ve said, “Why did I just eat that?” Say good-bye to one of the most overlooked areas of our relationship to food — mindless eating. This groundbreaking book shines new light on why we eat along with practical, proven strategies to control our eating.
Does your busy schedule translate into eating on the run or skipping meals altogether? Is your life so filled with multitasking and on-the-go consumption that eating becomes a thing to do while doing other things? Dr. Linda knows that all too often such eating becomes a source of guilt and distress.
The more stressed we feel, the more food becomes a source of gratification and relief — a numbing agent. Dieting treats only symptoms. “Unless people are coached to be intentional about their eating, they will continue to eat mindlessly and be part of the 90 to 95 percent of failed dieters,” writes Dr. Linda. “A new approach is needed — one that addresses the emotional, relational, and spiritual side of our relationship to food.”
Food is not your enemy; it is something you can once again enjoy! Dr. Linda deals with the root causes of unintentional eating and restores your joy of eating. This is your practical guide to cultivating a healthy awareness of eating that attends to your body, soul, and spirit.
