Gary Zimak doesn’t sugar coat his struggles or his strong Catholic Faith; his newest book, Give up Worry for Lent, is evidence of both.
Gary has a way of pointing to active solutions for anxiety/worry in a simple, concrete and encouraging way. I often find myself reading his work and wondering why I had never noticed (before) a particular or obvious truth that he has brought to light. He has a gift of uncovering nuggets of wisdom that come from his own personal journey to overcome anxiety. His work can help someone with a serious anxiety disorder but is also helpful for anyone who is trying to stay positive.
I highly recommend this book and have decided to purchase three copies as gifts for Lent. It is a valuable tool in deepening faith and learning to truly rely on God in difficult times.
Full disclosure: I’m not even going to try to pretend I’m unbiased. I have been a Gary Zimak fan for years, in fact, I even asked him to write the forward to my book, The Joy-Filled Broken Heart. I am grateful that he and his wife have also become my friends.
