Why just survive when you can thrive?
The U.S. has one of the highest rates of addiction, depression, anxiety, OCD, ADD, ADHD, obesity, and cancer in the world. We use more pharmaceuticals than any other nation. These statistics are not much different in the church, and yet the Bible says it should not be so. Many Christians simply don’t know how to apply biblical principles of body, soul, and spirit to their daily lives. In her 30-year journey with Christ, Robin Perry Braun has uncovered many truths in science which align with biblical principles. Much of the church has labeled this science as “New Age” or “witchcraft.” This book is an effort to align science and scripture in practical, life-giving principles that, when applied, can take you from just surviving to thrive and becoming a world-changer.
My Review :
When I first started reading this book, I’ll admit – I was quite skeptical. I’ve always heard the phrase “mind over matter” but in the instances when I actually tried practicing that skill, well – I failed spectacularly.
However, I realize now through the writing of Robin Perry Braun that my method was highly flawed. This isn’t a one off thing that you can do once and then expect to see results. Results only come after practice and progress.
The way she used the Bible to highlight her research really made things click into place for me. This isn’t just some random thought process – God said it himself.
I really enjoyed reading this book (although it did take me a while to get through it) and I look forward to putting forth the effort into changing my thought life to manifest the promises that God teaches through his word.
I’d recommend this book if you’re looking for guidance on how to change from a negative mindset. It’s very useful.
