About the Book
My Personal Review:
Sometimes life is hard, right? I know I have had some tough trials in my lifetime and looking back I will confess that sometimes I let my negative thoughts on the subjects bring me down and more times than I want to admit those negative feelings kept me down longer than I should have let them. With the help of the Lord, we can get through those tough times and this book from Tracie Miles is another great tool that we can use to rise above our tendencies to focus on the negative.
In Unsinkable Faith, Miles shares her personal struggles with a major life change that rocked her world. And understandably so she herself struggled with all the negative thoughts that can wait our lives down. She shares practical steps in the book that will help us which include: Notice negative thoughts, Reject negative thoughts, and Replace negative thoughts. Her steps are filled with Biblical inspiration through scriptures and great challenges at the end of each chapter. I am always a fan of books that offer application exercises for things we learn from the pages.
At first, I worried that this would be a little to “name and claim” for my taste, but I quickly found out that was not the case. I agree with the author that the way we process and think about things can really impact our attitude that spills out in our lives. We’ve all be in those places of stressing out or battling negativity when we accidentally let it spill over on our interactions with our husband or kids, right? I like that this book teaches that it is not realistic to think we will never have these hard times and negative thoughts, but Tracie is simply offering some tools to use as we work through those thoughts. God doesn’t want us to walk around grumpy and dwelling on negativity if we did that we would certainly miss his instructions to spread charity, hope, and love to our families and friends. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that has or is dealing with hard times or struggling to get past a negative mindset.
