Partly Cloudy with Scattered Worries – Book Giveaway
Whether you classify your worry habits as “partly cloudy,” or “stormy,” we’ve all dealt with worry in our lives. Today’s featured book drawing deals with that subject–and of the deeper issue of trusting God–one I like to emphasize often in my blogs.
A writer friend of mine, Kathy Collard Miller, has written a book called, Partly Cloudy with Scattered Worries, Finding Peace in All Kinds of Weather, that challenges women to examine this destructive habit of worry, and the effect it has on us and those around us. With transparency and honesty, Kathy shares not only powerful examples from her own life, but those of other contemporary women, including biblical characters. I believe every woman would benefit from her practical helps and biblical principles that both encourage and offer specific ways to meet worry head-on–and overcome its negative influence.
I especially liked Kathy’s description of God’s character, and how we can understand more about His intervention in our lives when we willingly choose to trust Him more and worry less.
Here’s a more complete summary of Kathy’s book and her biography:
