Be Still (Paperback)
Using Principles of the Gospel to Lower Anxiety
Do you fear you’re never good enough? Many of us feel worthless, useless, or frustrated with ourselves, even when we’re doing everything we’re supposed to do. Yet the source of the trouble is not our outward behavior but our inward thoughts. With clear and encouraging insight, this guide shows how we can calm much of our anxiety by changing our troubled thought patterns with a process based on gospel principles. The frame-work is simple yet powerful: when we turn our thoughts to the Savior, we are able to modify our distorted thinking and access real truth, where there is no worry or fear — only peace through the grace of Him who can save us all.

Sheldon Martin does an amazing job of identifying everyday struggles and how to approach these struggles with a clear mind. This book is a must read. It is easy to read, and would be great for anyone not just those with anxious feelings.
