- A very real, honest reflection on worry in our lives, and how to overcome it. by Tara P. on 2/18/2015
Jane Rubietta gently guides you from worrying to truly living. By using personal stories of her own journey of God leading her away from worry and anxiety and towards delight and joy. She encourages and leads us step by step to start reducing the worry in our life, but reminding us to look and depend on our Lord God completely. With a personal story at the beginning of each chapter that provides a lesson, followed by how we can apply it to our lives, then concluding with questions for personal introspection - Worry Less, So You Can Live More motivates lasting change in how we see our life and circumstance.
It gives us an honest view of how to live life moment by moment enjoying the small things God gives us to delight it because God doesn't want us to worry, He wants us to be free to enjoy the life He gave us.
I absolutely loved this book, it really made me self reflect on how I worry, what I do when I worry and it provided a way to get over it, by turning my focus to God. I really felt like I could connect to the personal stories Jane shared and I was able to take something away at the end of each chapter. I really enjoyed the reflection questions following each chapter because it caused you to stop and really evaluate where you are and make a goal and plan of how to get where you want to me.
When reading I recommend taking it a chapter at a time to really soak up , reflect and apply Jane's points to your own life for overall effectiveness. Go slow and make sure you write out your answers to the reflection questions because when you are aware of where you are, you can lead yourself in the direction you want to go.
I recommend this book to all who worry!

- Worry Less!!! by Robin on 2/18/2015
I received a book to review from Bethany House called, Worry Less So You Can Live More: Surprising, Simple Ways To Feel More Peace, Joy, And Energy by Jane Rubietta. In each chapter Rubietta starts out telling a story of her past of when she had trouble with worrying. I find she wrote each chapter beautifully, and has a distinct way of telling her stories. At the end of the chapters there are questions you can ask yourself or even if you used this book for a bible study group. She also ends the chapter with a votum and a benedictus she has written. Rubietta has a way of keeping you interested while reading about this worry or that worry, and also does a great job of explaining how those worries are not needed. She writes about how we need to give those worries to God and have faith. It really hits home for me because I have always worried. I just need to trust God more, and know that he is there with me and he will take care of it. Not only is the book beautifully written it has a gorgeous cover! It is worth a read if you struggle with worrying.
