WORDS THAT CHANGE EVERYTHING: Speaking Truth to Your Soul by Karen Jordan



Book Cover: Worry, anxiety, and fear saturate our world today more than ever from acts of terrorism to economic downturns. But many women face real fears in their own homes: death, illness, job loss, betrayal, rejection, and dozens of other threats that challenge their family's well being. As women recognize and understand the warning signs of worry and negative self-talk, they can employ strategies to navigate their overwhelming anxiety and hopeless thoughts. Most Christian women know the Bible encourages them not to worry about anything, but few women know how to respond to their worries, especially in a crisis. "Words That Change Everything" offers true personal stories with biblical applications to help everyday women understand the purpose of their God-given emotions and identify biblical prayer strategies to help them confront their worries. 

My Review: I've known Karen a number of years. I've heard her speak to women about how she learned to face her fears and then share what she has learned. Therefore, I'm delighted she has finally written about the wisdom the Lord has taught her in a book. This is a great tool for anyone who struggles with fear, anger, or negativity. In it she identifies sources of negativity, how to overcome this habit, and how to maintain peace. It is an easy and honest read because she uses anecdotes from her own life.

  2. Thank you so much for your encouraging words, Linda. I pray my book will help other women who struggle with anxiety and fear. I also hope it encourages women to share their own faith stories, because when we tell the stories that matter most, lives change and hearts heal. Blessings!

  3. I am about 1/3 of the way through Karen's book and underlining passages that reach out to me. God has given her important info to guide all of us through life's fears and worries. I find it interesting how many similarities there are between Karen's book and the topic of the memoir I'm writing now. Her challenges and worries were different from mine, but our loving God has given both of us many promises and His presence. Good job, Karen!
