Stop Worrying & Start Living (Hardcover)

January 1

And Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” (Luke 1:38)

Every day, you and I have the opportunity to say yes to God. On the other hand, we are also able to say no. Sometimes we forget that the Blessed Mother had free will and could have rejected Gabriel’s invitation to become the mother of the Messiah. Mary wasn’t given all the answers up front. She was told what God wanted her to know and that was it. Because of her great trust and her desire to do God’s will, however, she consented to the request. As a result of her obedience, we received our Savior, who opened the gates of heaven for us.

Are you dealing with uncertainty right now? Is it hard to imagine why particular things are happening in your life? Mary understands. Ask her to help you trust in God’s plan for your life and for the grace to say yes to whatever he sends your way.

Mary, please help me to accept whatever happens in my life, and grant me the grace to say yes to God, even when I’m frightened.

January 2

Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. (Isaiah 1:18)

One of the greatest sources of anxiety is the overwhelming guilt caused by sin. Fortunately, God’s words to the prophet Isaiah remind us that there is no need to despair. Jesus is waiting to meet us in the sacrament of reconciliation.

Are you tired of carrying around the guilt of many sins? There is an answer. Take advantage of this great outpouring of God’s mercy and make the decision to confess your sins, no matter how overwhelming they may be. You will not only feel peace, but you’ll get to experience God’s love and mercy firsthand!

God, I’m sorry for the times I have turned my back on you. I long for the peace of knowing that I’m doing your will. I look forward to meeting you in this great sacrament of healing.

Whether you're facing financial hardships, health issues, personal insecurities, or the million and one little things that keep you up at night, God doesn't want you to worry. Even though it sometimes can be tough to believe, God wants you to know that he has a plan for your happiness and peace. He can see you through anything-- even your anxiety! By listening to God's voice in the Bible, speaking to him in prayer, and spending time in his presence, your life will change. These daily reflections will help you along the way. It's time to stop worrying and start living!

Excellent Book for Anxiety

By Kathleen on Monday, May 18, 2020

I have purchased this book for myself and then for two family members because I found it so helpful. I have had trouble with anxiety for years. I now have read this book for over two years and it has been the most helpful resource to fight my anxiety. It slowly happened over time and consistent reading, but it worked. I highly recommend this book.

Focus on Jesus

By Lori on Monday, May 18, 2020

I like this devotional because it constantly reminds me to keep my eyes on Jesus rather than my problems. Like Peter who asked to walk on water towards Jesus, these devotional bites of wisdom help me remain strong in faith and hope.


By Marilyn on Friday, May 15, 2020

This is the best daily read. So helpful and encouraging. I bought one for my daughter for Mother's Day. A great gift

Great Daily Reading

By Wayne on Friday, May 15, 2020

I have had fear and anxiety my whole life. I have been able to battle through it when I turn to God. This book gives you daily resources and inspiration to help fight your fears each day. I also shows you how to use your fears and anxiety for good. I like to highlight special parts of books to read again or as a resource. I find that I want to put a bookmark on each page. This book will help everyone, worrying or not, to live a better life. Thank you Gary Zimak!

Great start to each day

By Margie on Friday, May 15, 2020

I've used other daily reflection books in the past, but this one is the best. Each reflection touches my heart and helps me to focus on the important things God wants for us. Highly recommend.

Great way to start the day...

Really enjoying starting each day with this devotional.... Especially during the Covid Pandemic. Thank you for this simple and powerful book.

Calm in Life’s Storm

By Rosita on Thursday, May 14, 2020

Loving reading the days writing, and often finding it speaks exactly to what I’m feeling. This book is truly my “calm in life’s storm” during our stay at home orders as we get through the pandemic.
Thank you for making it available again, as I missed out the last time.

Love this book!

By Linda on Thursday, May 14, 2020

I keep this book by my bed and read the day’s section as soon as I wake up. It is the perfect book during this difficult time. It gives me hope and focus for the day!

Stop Worrying &Start Living

By Anne on Wednesday, May 13, 2020

I have had a number of daily reflection books and they have been helpful. This book, Stop Worrying & Start Living, offers daily thoughts that have been really useful and insightful. In many cases, proposing a different point of view than I was using to approach the daily verse. I am very pleased and look forward to my morning reading! Thank you.

Holy moments

By Toni on Sunday, March 22, 2020

There are many holy moments when the daily reading is spot on regarding my life or the world around me.......always a comfort.


By Kathryn on Saturday, February 17, 2018

I have used the same daily reflection book since 1993. That is how I start my day. I noticed that these reflections really spoke to me as I was looking at my Dynamic Catholic reflections so I bought the book. Now I start the day with this. I just bought for my girls as a Easter gift.

Wonderful daily read

By Rosey on Thursday, November 9, 2017
