WILMINGTON, NC, April 22, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- We are in the midst of a mental health crisis. That crisis has been brought about by stress. Stress levels are at all time highs. A years-long pandemic that caused millions of death, coupled with loss of employment, social unrest, lockdowns, political infighting - the list goes on and on. According to the CDC website, "Stress can cause the following:
Feelings of fear, anger, sadness, worry, numbness, or frustration
Changes in appetite, energy, desires, and interests
Difficulty concentrating and making decisions
Nightmares or problems sleeping
Physical reactions, such as headaches, body pains, stomach problems, or skin rashes
Worsening of chronic health problems and mental health conditions
Increased use of alcohol, illegal drugs (like heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine), and misuse of prescription drugs (like opioids)"
There are hundreds of approaches to alleviating stress - everything from yoga to psychotherapy, vitamins and natural remedies, music, breathing, walking, chocolate, journaling, prescription drugs - the choices are endless.
There is another way to help alleviate stress that goes directly to the source. It has been with us for thousands of years. And for century after century, it has worked. That remedy is faith. Bestselling Christian author Donna Louis shows us how these concepts can be applied to modern day problems in 'Book of Proverbs - Proverbs For The Modern Day'.
"Stress kills," Louis stated. "It weakens the heart and brains. How do you overcome that? You follow Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
"Now the key words here are trust, lean, and acknowledge. We must learn how to trust God the same way we trust a man-made roller coaster that when we get in it, we trust we will enjoy the ride and be back on the ground within 4 to 4 ½ minutes safely. We need to lean on God knowing that he is a strong tower and will always work things together for our good because he said in his word, "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." – 3 John 1:2. God made it very clear when he said that he is a jealous God.
"We must acknowledge God always - daily. The Bible says, "For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else." – Isaiah 45:18.
If we dutifully give significance to these three words and keep God as the MAINLINE and not the sideline whenever stress comes, it will roll off our back like water rolls off a duck's back."
Book of Proverbs - Proverbs For The Modern Day achieved #1 Best Selling status within 10 days of its release in Christian Devotionals & Christian Inspirational. It received a 5-star rating from Readers Favorite.
If you are struggling with daily life itself or maybe even deeper issues like hopelessness and depression, this book will help you. If you're looking for hope, peace, happiness, prosperity, wisdom, and the fullness of life, look no further.
Book Of Proverbs: Proverbs For The Modern Day delves deeply into the timeless human quest for wisdom. As all Christians know, the primary purpose of the Biblical Book of Proverbs is to teach wisdom. The Book of Proverbs provides intellectual depth, insights, and exceptional wisdom on how to live a meaningful, joyful and tranquil life by honoring and respecting God as omnipotent.
This updated version of Book Of Proverbs: Proverbs For The Modern Day, discusses all chapters in Proverbs 1-31 and brings insight, clarity, and basic meaning to several verses in each chapter. It clarifies why wisdom is not only essential, but mandatory in life, if one hopes to live a blessed life, versus living destitute, empty, or feeling lost or hopeless.
Donna Louis' prior best-selling book, 'Thriving in Every Season of Life with God', gives us a road map to create a mindset - a new life in which we can learn to prosper in any circumstance, however dire. The book achieved bestseller status in two categories: Spiritual Self Help and Motivational Self Help.
To understand what it means to "thrive," we must look beyond the dimension of finances. The concept of thriving can be applied to our health, our relationships, our habits and our peace of mind. God wants us to thrive. But it does not just happen - we must take action to make it happen.
Set against the backdrop of four "seasons of life", Louis, in the tradition of writers such as Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer, discusses how you can thrive, prosper, and flourish. Much like growing crops, we prepare in spring, grow in summer, harvest in fall and rest in winter. At times, we must nurture and cultivate, at other times we bloom and reproduce, and at other times we harvest and replant.
Thriving In Every Season Of Life With God is a book that can be read in just a few hours and provides readers with powerful ideas and concepts that can be implemented immediately, allowing them to thrive in the midst of adversity. The book received a five-star rating from Readers Favorite.
Donna also presents powerful ideas and concepts via her YouTube video series, 'Motivational Mondays With Donna'. The video series is available at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJCieSU2FYdC09F3YNkfzDw.
Donna Louis' first book, 'Miracles of Direction, Miracles of Conquest, Miracles of Provision and Miracles of Purpose' helps readers explore miracles both past and present. The book explores biblical miracles that took place while Jesus was here on earth. She then references with miracles that take place on a daily basis in the modern world. She separates these miracles into four categories and presents insightful examples of each type, taken directly from the Bible.
Louis knows her subject well, as she has personally experienced four miracles. As the result of those life-altering experiences, she began an in-depth study of some of Christianity's most well-documented miracles. In her book, she attempts to expand upon and explain both the purpose and the direction of those miracles.
Louis has won a number of industry awards. She was chosen as the winner in the 2018 Top Female Author Awards in the Religion/Philosophy/Spiritual category. Louis was chosen from an international field of contestants by a panel of judges. She was also a winner in the 2018 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading Awards.
Louis' recent wins follow three awards in the 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading Awards contest (2015, 2016 and 2017), and two nominations in the Top Female Authors Awards.
'Miracles' has received rave reviews from readers. One review called it "amazing, uplifting and inspirational". Another stated, "I was profoundly impressed by the writing."
