Daily anxiety can cause great difficulties in our emotional, physical, and spiritual lives. Thankfully, the Apostle Paul opened up God's toolbox in Philippians 4:5-7 and gave us help and answers. In this book we will explore the hope and help in overcoming daily anxiety.
The United States had tremendous opportunities after World War II. The nation's industrial might, geared to defeat Germany and Japan, could now be focused on domestic production. Real wages were up, the GNP was on the rise, industrial production was up, and inflation was under control. The future looked bright for the average American. But this abundance was punctuated with anxiety. Within four years of the end of the war, the Soviet Union had become the new enemy: they had the bomb and China and Eastern Europe had fallen into the Soviet sphere of influence. These two points, the abundance of the growing economy and the anxiety of the Cold War, defined the period from 1945-1960.
Catherine Lepage's quirky, clever imagery captures both her personal journey and universal truths about the daily habits and frustrations of anxiety. For anyone who is anxious or knows someone with anxiety, this book offers the comfort that, 'thinly sliced and illustrated, emotions are much easier to digest.'
