Words That Change Everything

Speaking Truth to Your Soul

“Write the books you really wish were out there in the world” (Anne Lamott).

Good news! WordsThatChangeEverything2My book, Words That Change Everything: Speaking Truth to Your Soul, is scheduled to be published this summer by Leafwood Publishing.

Words That Change Everything offers personal stories with biblical applications to help everyday women understand the purpose of their God-given emotions and identify biblical prayer strategies to help them confront their worries.

Worry, anxiety, and fear saturate our world today more than ever—from acts of terrorism to economic downturns. But many women face real fears in their own homes—death, illness, job loss, betrayal, rejection, and dozens of other threats that challenge their family’s well-being.

As women recognize and understand the warnings signs of worry and negative self-talk, they can employ strategies to navigate their overwhelming anxiety and hopeless thoughts.

Most Christian women know the Bible encourages them not to worry about anything, but few women know how to respond to their worries, especially in a crisis.

In Words That Change Everything, I share what I have learned about dealing with my own worries and fears.

All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. (2 Cor. 1:3-4 The Message)

I look forward to sharing Words That Change Everything with you soon. So, be sure to sign up to follow my blog today to keep up-to-date on my book launch plans.

  1. Karen,

    This is a life changing book! I’ve learned how to be free from worry, anxiety, and depression. Your acronym REST is a tool that I can remember as I go through my day tempted to return to old habits that threaten my happiness and confidence in Jesus. “The waiting rooms of life”–now that is something we can all identify with. With raw vulnerability, you share life application in good and hard times. You invite the reader to monitor their emotions and find healing in REST.

    One of my favorite quotes from your book: “The storms will come and go, whether we trust Jesus or not. But I’ve found comfort in knowing He’s in the boat with me during every storm…”

    Thank you!!

  3. Karen I have often wanted to write a book and seeing you have made this accomplishment is such great news. Can’t wait to get my copy when it comes out. Love reading books for wisdom and encouragement. Congratulations and God Bless you.

  4. Karen I look forward to reading your book#
    In my life God has workedightlt in different ways. Here are just a few: sent labors, speaks in the middle of the night, spontaneous ways, and last which is first through His Word. The Holy Spirit speaks wisdom, but am I listening? Everyday is another window we get to see Him work. A journey of experiences and especially that women go through! God knows our needs and I believe your book will help women in many areas. Thank you! 🙂

    • Thanks for sharing, Linda. I agree – the most important thing in overcoming any obstacle is listening and obeying God. And I pray this book will encourage women to seek God first in their lives. Blessings to you!

  5. I am so excited and happy for you, knowing your new book is coming out soon. I can hardly wait to get it! Reading what the book is about, I believe women will be relieved to know how they can respond the right way to handle worry, fear, etc…all those negative feelings that we all tend to have.
