I have enjoyed many of your posts that share your experiences and give insight into humanity.  Many of you have given some great book reviews as well.

Since we have started to work with author Brian Ludwig,  Panic Attacks Calming the Storm,  he told me to give away 4 books to other bloggers that have reviewed books that his book would interest.

In fact, the blog started well before his book was ever published and it is amazing how we have  backgrounds that led us to wanting to reach out and help others.  Some of the techniques he explains are  very similar to what I have been sharing with others. Brian is a Goodreads author and is being added to the Onlinebookclub.

Let him know if you are interested by sending him an email at seekingpeaceandjoy@gmail.com  Include a synopsis of what you cover in your blog and a little about yourself.

Below I have included a sampling of some of the reviews that his book has received.   

If anyone may want to be considered as a guest blogger with an article dealing with panic and anxiety. Send them for consideration and be sure to include contact information.

Brian, you have written a wonderful book—it has an important message that is well communicated, with clear steps on how to use your ideas. You’ve done a particularly good job of providing direct support from Scripture for your techniques and ideas—there are a huge number of passages that speak directly to the subject at hand, lending great weight to what you are saying. I also think that when a passage from Scripture does not directly address the ideas presented, you’ve done an excellent job of connecting the dots for the reader.

This was a really interesting read and I am grateful for being chosen for this project. I have to say that I actually learned a lot from reading this book, and I have been thinking about some of your tips recently! You wrote in a straightforward and informal manner, which will help the reader connect with you. I felt that you used real-life examples and spoke in a way that was not overly academic in nature. This made the information easier to understand and apply to the reader’s daily life, step by step.

This book is very practical and easy to read! I learned step by step methods for overcoming panic and anxiety issues! The author describes his personal journey in down to earth, relatable fashion with great humor and candor. I found it very encouraging to hear directly from someone who has wrestled with and overcome severe symptoms, as opposed to hearing from a PhD who only studied those who have but has no first-hand knowledge.

“I have suffered with mild to severe anxiety most of my life. After reading this book, I have learned new ways to quiet my mind and guide my thoughts into new patterns of thinking. We so quickly give up on trusting God, this book explains how to use His power to obtain freedom.”.  JK, a retired teacher, mother and worrier

The author does a good job explaining panic attacks from the patients point of view. Along the way he provides hope and encouragement using other effective medical treatment and self-help. Doctor CL

Fantastic book-easy to read and I felt like the writer completely understood how panic attack’s and anxiety feel and how to overcome them. I’ve suffered from anxiety before I knew that was it and it can be debilitating. I started implementing the strategies while reading the book and already feel somewhat better. Highly recommend. DP 

I personally haven’t dealt with anxiety or panic attacks, but this book is very helpful to help me understand people who are dealing with these things. The second part of this book, the spiritual experience of the author is truly challenging and inspiring! If you want to know the heart of God for your life, recognize the attacks of the enemy and move into a victorious life, then this book will help you!  AR

I was given the book because I struggle with poor self-image, anxiety, and depression. The way the information was presented was the first time I could really grasp why our thoughts are so important. The second half of the book really tied it all together. It was very easy to read and follow.  JD

This book is a must read for anyone seeking help with panic attacks or any anxiety related issues. Truly it is a testimony to God’s immense love, and displays how one man’s journey through affliction is overcome. I have seen already how it’s helped myself and others around me. KR

What an eye opening revelation of a book. I thoroughly enjoyed this powerful one of a kind true story. The author reveals openly his personal journey from anxiety to overcoming. I highly recommend this book of healing to anyone who may struggle in their own life or perhaps you know someone who struggles. This book encourages the reader that there is hope. Great read. AN

By reading this book it allowed me to put words to what I was experiencing physically. At first I thought it was a panic attack but learned from the book it was an anxiety attack, the stressor was fear of being alone. The book taught me to gain control of my thoughts patterns, my mindset. GREAT BOOK!!   EH

The book is so helpful for anyone who has anxiety. It has so many important lessons in it. This book reveals how one can get closer to God and build a relationship with him. I highly recommend this book. SR

Insight from reading this book means more to me than you can know. Realistic help for the panic/anxiety attack victim from one who has been there and survived. Has set me on my healing path to peace. A must have for family supporters, too! MM

By far one of the best books I‘ve read, and I’ve read a lot! Highly recommend “Calming the Storm” that has been worked on over the past couple years by Brian Ludwig and completed just recently. Very timely for our current season. The first part goes into Brian’s personal journey of overcoming panic attacks and anxiety and comes alongside you as the reader to coach you through those issues, to achieve not just some relief but total freedom.

The second part is about living an “on Earth as it is in Heaven” lifestyle by living naturally supernatural in miracles by the power of Holy Spirit as a child of God from what Jesus paid a price for you to have.
If you or someone you know could benefit from this training, I highly recommend grabbing a copy in this season as I have been under a lot of teaching around the world, but this book gave a fresh fire to me!

All profits of the book go to missions! RD
