I heard parts of this series given at education week. I kept thinking, I wish so and so could be here to hear this. When Brother Martin's CD came out I was so excited to share it with people. His CD is even better than I remember it at education week. If you know anyone who struggles and worries, especially when it comes to church related things, this cd will bless their lives. I know it has mine.

Phenomenal Set of CDs!!!!

I really cannot say enough about Brother Martin’s talk on lowering anxiety. I laughed at his stories and was in tears at the end as he discusses the ways to find peace through the scriptures. This is a wonderful set of talks on a subject that so many of us struggle with as members of the church. I loved the way that he integrated therapeutic and gospel principles. This is a must own for anyone struggling with anxiety. I am an LDS counselor myself and have already recommended these CDs to my LDS clients. Thank you Brother Martin!!!

Brother Martin does a great job of identifying practical helps for everyday stress. Brother Martin describes how thinking and processing correct gospel principles helps us worry less. I have listened to it three times already and plan to listen to this great talk series again.

Anxiety explained spiritually

I could not stop listening. The insights Brother Martin presents are meaningful and helpful. He explains irrational thinking in a clear and concise manner. We all have anxiety, but he explains when anxiety becomes unhealthy or even debilitating and how the gospel helps us understand life is not a contest with others.
I highly recommend this CD to everyone and especially to Church Leaders.

at peace in war

I listened to Brother Martin's talk while preparing to go to Afghanistan. I stored it on my iPod and have listened to it several times since as I ride through Afghanistan in a very stressful environment. His uncanny ability to put into perspective the Lord's view of our lives has made even combat a tolerable environment. I recommend this series of talks to anyone preparing for anything from college, to parenthood, a new career venture, or combat. I only wish I had this knowledge years ago. Thank you Sheldon.

I am so glad I have this talk series in my home.
