Struggling with stress? Don't let it get the best of you.

Stress. It’s part of our everyday lives, sometimes as the spark that keeps us moving forward and sometimes as the avalanche that threatens to bury us. Chances are, since this book’s title has caught your eye, you are looking for some relief from stress, or at least hope that relief is possible.

In this thoroughly revised and updated edition of Help for Women Under Stress originally published in 1986, Randy and Nanci offer you both the hope and the help you are looking for. They not only help you understand what stress is and how it operates, but give plenty of useful tips and strategies for bringing peace to the chaos of your daily life.

Your energy is perishable, but can be daily replenished. Don’t waste your life in unnecessary and unwise responses to stress. Let this book help you live in a way that honors God and your loved ones, while understanding and respecting your limits. And let it remind you that one day God will wipe away all the downsides of stress in an eternal world of rest, refreshment, thriving relationships and unending adventure.

A Prayer of Weariness by Randy Alcorn

Read Chapter 2 from the book ("Stress: What's It All About?") and take the stress quiz to find out how stress is affecting your life.


Author Randy Alcorn is the founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries (EPM), a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching biblical truth and drawing attention to the needy and how to help them. EPM exists to meet the needs of the unreached, unfed, unborn, uneducated, unreconciled and unsupported people around the world.

"My ministry focus is communicating the strategic importance of using our earthly time, money, possessions and opportunities to invest in need-meeting ministries that count for eternity," Alcorn says. "I do that by trying to analyze, teach and apply the implications of Christian truth."

Randy and Nanci Alcorn were married in 1975. They have two married daughters and five grandsons.


This is a much-needed book for women in today's fast-paced world. Randy and Nanci Alcorn address the issue of stress from a variety of angles, including its source and the effect it can have on a woman's physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Simple quizzes help the reader identify the level of stress impacting her life, including stress caused by positive life changes. This is not just a philosophical discussion of stress, however, but a highly practical book that provides specific steps for women to address and decrease the stress in their lives. No miracle cures or quick fixes here, just sound and Biblically-based advice for women that will help them manage the demands on their time without feeling like they are stuck on the spin cycle of an unruly washing machine. And since the stressed-out woman doesn't have time for "one more" thing on her To Do List, this book can be read in small increments, applying each section as it is read. Recommended!
