I Tried Until I Almost Died
From Anxiety and Frustration to Rest and Relaxation
Written by Sandra McCollom
Foreword by Dave Meyer and Joyce Meyer

Oh my goodness!!!!  I am so happy that I was asked to look over this book!  I have been dealing with anxiety and depressed for sixteen years.  A very long time.  Too long.  I have been on all sorts of medicine and sometimes it has helped and sometimes it has not.  I have reached bottom and when I thought it couldn't get any worse, it did.  I can relate so I am thankful that Sandra is sharing her story with us.

I have this book beside me right now to start reading today when the house is quiet.

I Tried Until I Almost Died

I Tried Until I Almost Died
From Anxiety and Frustration to Rest and Relaxation
Written by Sandra McCollom
Foreword by Dave Meyer and Joyce Meyer

Tired of trying to measure up?
Trade your anxiety and frustration for rest and relaxation.

Many of us believe that in order to please God, we have to be perfect. It’s an easy lie to buy into. In a culture that emphasizes accomplishment and ever-higher goals, we feel driven to do more, achieve more, be more. And we get caught up in the unforgiving treadmill of self-imposed rules, believing that we should, we need to, we must.

The result? Anger, frustration, and anxiety that keep us far away from the life of peace that Jesus promised.

For years, Sandra McCollom lived in this trap. Finally worn out from striving for perfection but constantly feeling like a failure, one day she prayed in desperation, begging God for help. God answered Sandra by setting her on a life-changing journey to discover the riches of His grace.

In I Tried Until I Almost Died, Sandra shares how she left behind her burden of anxiety and fear and shows you how to experience for yourself the freedom of trusting solely in the perfecting power of God’s grace.

Conversations with my best friend BG. #thebgs

This will be a random question that will be from a CrAzY conversation with my Beastie Grits.

The first ever question asked since the very small, more work to do, blog change over.

1)  Where do you keep your wine?

My response,

"Above the washing machine as no one else knows how to use such a complex machine."

She said, I picture with her hands on her hips, "Yeah, NO SHIT!  LOL"

Thank you thank you thank you,
