Do you believe you can beat worry and anxiety? I wholeheartedly think you can. (At least the basic kind that you can control - sometimes our bodies aren't quite allll under our control...we'll talk about that further in this study, too! Along with some tips to work on those issues also. It also involves God.)
God wants His children to have an everyday existence of light, of joy, of strength...not perpetual worry and anxiety over things in this world. Jesus said, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly." (John 10:10)
Abundant life. That doesn't sound like it's plagued with worry and anxiety, does it, sisters? More along the lines of contentment and joy! (Doesn't that sound infinitely more wonderful??)
Let's recognize that our feelings are often tricksters - we just can't trust 'em! But we can ALWAYS, ALWAYS trust God and the truths found in His Word. Which means we need to KNOW His Word - and what it says and what it means.
Our 7-Day Bible study challenge this month is about Beating Worry and Anxiety and I hope you'll be along for the journey! If you want to join us, it's only $7 and here's what you'll get:

*extra credit ideas/activities (new!) for further study/reflection
Welcome! Our Christian lifestyle blog - www.theruffledmango.com - was launched in the summer of 2015, to fill a niche of speaking the truth in love. We want to encourage women to identify what the Bible really says, and then confidently step into their God-given roles, glorifying Him as we pass through this life. Our site has slowly evolved, with the feedback from our precious readers, to offering much more Bible study materials, such as our monthly scripture writing plans (offered for free on the blog). We also have created several physical products, such as our Faith Planner, scripture writing calendar, greeting cards, and printables (which you can find in our Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheRuffledMango) The four of us also enjoy creating online Bible studies, which are all housed here in our Teachable school: https://the-ruffled-mango-school.teachable.com/cou... We hope to add ebooks and printed workbooks to our offerings in the next year or so. =)
Besides our work with The Ruffled Mango, the four of us are busy with other work also. Kristen manages a local antique & gift shop and co-coordinates a huge tea party fundraiser each spring for student scholarships to a local Christian university. Ashley (a CPA) teaches college level accounting classes, mothers 4 sweet kiddos, and also tends chickens & an orphaned lamb in her spare time. Alyssa is mom to 3 active boys and sells fancy decorated cookies and cakes on the side. Christy is a health science teacher with 5 children and serves in the role as a preacher's wife also. All of us enjoy cooking and baking, along with working in various ministries in our home congregations.
