Review: Worry Less So You Can Live More by Jane Rubietta

Review: Worry Less So You Can Live More
Jane Rubietta
Bethany House Publishers

Jane Rubietta’s work is new to me, and if this one is typical of her, I will be looking for more. So right up front you can tell I’m recommending this one to you.  Worry in a number guises is but one of the topics this author presents in a fashion that pulls a person into the text.  Some have called her style lyrical, delightful, rich, real, honest, filled with humor, and insightful.  I would add heartfelt, gentle, and an encouragement.  I’m sure others have said this as well.  The best part is that she doesn’t get “preachy” and the use of Scripture passages is restrained but oh so pertinent.  It’s almost like having someone whisper them in your ear.  I like that approach—a lot. 

My favorite portions of each chapter are the Votum and Benedictus, all of which are original works from the author.  They touched my heart often with an unexpected peace that I didn’t know I needed. 
The only part of this book I didn’t like was the title.  If I had not received the book for review I am sure I would not have given it a chance.  There’s so much more in this book than “worry”.  Don’t miss this one just because of a title.  It is well worth your time.

I received this book from the publisher in return for a review.
