Take Charge of Your Emotions by Dr. Linda J. Solie

Are you struggling with depression or anxiety in your life?  Are there situations in your life that you have a hard time overcoming?  Take Charge of Your Emotions: Seven Steps to Overcoming Depression, Anxiety and Anger by Dr. Linda J. Solie  would be a great book for you to pick up and read.  Life throws so much at us and often we make choices that aren't healthy for us.  These choices hold us captive and seem to control our lives.  Dr. Linda J. Solie's seven steps can really help you to pinpoint "unhelpful self-talk" and turn it into "helpful self-talk."  This book is a great tool for helping to transform your thinking and putting your focus back on Christ instead of yourself.

I really liked reading through this book.  As a person who struggles with depression, I found it quite helpful in pinpointing my negative thinking.  But this book doesn't just point out what's wrong, it helps lead you to correct the problem.  I also appreciated that the author pointed to Christ as the answer!  We do not have the power in our flesh to overcome sin.  Only Christ can give us the power to be more than conquerors.  If you're struggling or know of someone who is, this would be a great book to pick up and start reading.  You can read the introduction and first chapter below.
