About the Book



"For years, Christian women have been told, "If you just prayed more, had more faith, and trusted Jesus, you'd have more peace." But what does it mean when a Christian momma continues to worry? How does she reconcile her feelings of fear with her faith in God? And how does she raise her children in a home full of peace when she feels anything but peaceful? Becky Thompson, a pastor's daughter, draws on Scripture to support and encourage readers with God's promises and love. As Becky examines the relationship between the promise of peace in Scripture and the reality of life, motherhood,"--



Book Synopsis



The bestselling author of Love Unending and Midnight Mom Devotional reassures anxious women that even if you can't shake off fear, your faith is not broken.

For years, Christian women have been told, If you just prayed more, had more faith, and trusted Jesus, you'd have more peace. But what does it mean when a Christian momma continues to worry? How does she reconcile her feelings of fear with her faith in God? And how does she raise her children in a home full of peace when she feels anything but peaceful?

Becky Thompson, a best-selling author with a degree in biblical studies, knows firsthand what it is like to suffer from the crippling effects of anxiety--a condition she has struggled to overcome for most of her life. For her and many others, the fear she faces is not a faith issue. It's a physical one that affects over 40 million adults in the US.

As Becky examines the relationship between the promise of peace in Scripture and the reality of life, motherhood, and anxiety, she brings both a practical and spiritual approach to the discussion of anxiety and how it impacts your mind, body, and spirit.

Peace meets moms in the forest of fear where they have felt isolated and alone and walks them toward hope, reminding them that there are millions of other women who walk the same dark, uncertain trails they do and there isn't something wrong with their faith because they can't shake the fear. Peace is a lifeline for the Christian mom desperate for solid advice based on sound doctrine and presented in a way that makes her feel understood and far less alone on her journey toward healing.

This book is so good for any mommas who deal with anxiety. Even if you’re not a mom, it’s still a great book. It’s great at telling us we’re not alone through our walk with anxiety and our relationship with God isn’t based on it either. This is a great read and another great book written by Becky.

Your anxiety does not disqualify you!

5 out of 5 stars

This book is like sitting down to have coffee and a chat with a great Christian friend who is ready to speak truth to you and lead you to peace. Becky Thompson’s writing style is comfortable and inviting. She constantly points us back to God’s truth and the perfect Peace that is within us as the Holy Spirit. Momma’s (or women) who have felt the sting of seemingly not having enough faith, or endured the sermons telling them their anxiety was a result of not trusting enough, will find comfort and reassurance in these pages. They will learn that “anxiety does not disqualify you from being a woman full of faith.” Becky offers tangible ways to walk in faith DESPITE our physiological symptoms, despite our psychological worries, despite the lies that tell us we are not enough or God is not enough. This book goes a step further in helping us to find the courage to share our stories and be trail guides for other women who are still lost in the forest of fear amidst their anxiety. Each chapter closes with a prayer, a truth, and a very real step that women can take as they navigate their own anxiety or offer help to others around them. The world needs PEACE right now. Women need the words on these pages! Becky Thompson is a “must-read” author. I have all of her books on my shelf and reach for them often. God speaks such truth through her words and her humble spirit. She is a “real momma” in the trenches and so, so incredibly relatable. I highly recommend purchasing this book and every other one she’s written. You will feel like you’re getting a hug and whispers of advice and support from your best friend while she points you back towards your Heavenly Father.

Becky Thompson speaks love & truth straight to the hearts of every mother that has ever encountered a season of anxiety in her life. She writes as a loving friend and shows you not only the light at the end of the tunnel, but the light shining within you that never left. My new goal in life is to be a "trail angel" & help carry the loads of others through their journeys. What a beautiful picture of peace & hope!

Amazing book

5 out of 5 stars
Elizabeth MC - 2 years ago
I’ve read and loved all of Becky Thompson’s books but this one is my favorite so far. You can really see her heart in this book. I would recommend it to any woman who struggles with anxiety on any level. I really appreciated that while this is a Christian book and a solid one at that, Becky doesn’t just recite the stereotypical church speech as pertains to anxiety (or mental disorders as a whole for that matter). She talks a lot about the physiological reasons anxiety happens and how our hormones play a part. She discusses how our bodies are imperfect because of living in a broken world, and just like our physical bodies can break down or stop working properly, our brains can as well. She gives practical advice on how to handle anxiety as well as spiritual. While she does acknowledge anxiety isn’t always a spiritual problem, she does address it on that level as well, because, ultimately, Becky is pointing her readers back to Jesus as the ultimate source of peace. And that is the entire point of the book. The two chapters that stood out most to me where the chapter on the Holy Spirit and how we as Christians lack understanding of this aspect of God, and the chapter at the end about “going back into the forest” and helping other women who are struggling with a lack of peace in their lives. I love that Becky uses solid biblical truths throughout the book; this isn’t a self-help, cure all book to end all of your problems. It’s a book that points continuously back to Jesus who is Peace. It’s full of reminders that we can’t have peace, true peace, without Him. This book is a must for any Christian woman who lives with anxiety, and a really useful tool for anyone who knows someone in their life who struggles in this way.

MUST-READ for all mommas searching for peace, hope, and healing!

5 out of 5 stars
ladylanders - 2 years ago
It is a tough world right now, especially as a mom. There are so many things happening, and so many unknowns. It is easy to become overwhelmed, and to allow our anxiety to take over. This book is such a beautiful reminder that we are seen, we are heard, and we are not alone. It is a reminder that God is leading us through this forest of unknowns, and will guide us through to the other side. It is a reminder that it is okay to say that we are not okay, and that we are not alone in these feelings. Becky Thompson is so real and honest, and that spoke right to my heart and brought me such peace. I can't wait for so many women to read this and find peace, hope, and healing!

There has not been a better time for this book to come! I love the practical advice that Becky gives and the understanding she has for the topic of anxiety. Becky mixes personal stories from her life with applications from the Bible, in her heartfelt way of meeting you right where you are. You aren’t broken, you aren’t beyond hope, and anxiety is not a pure result of lack of faith! Mama, it’s 2020, and life has never been more crazy. This book is calm for a troubled heart and you need a copy!

Life Changing!

5 out of 5 stars

I've been reading Becky's books and blog for a few years now and have loved everything I've read, so when the opportunity arose to be a part of her launch team and read an advance copy of Peace: Hope and Healing for the Anxious Momma's heart, I couldn't resist. I was hooked immediately. Becky begins the book by telling a story of the day she envisioned a woman lost in the forest, searching for a helping hand, a voice, a light, anything to help her out of the darkness. She knew this woman (you, me, anyone searching for peace) needed someone who had been there. Someone who knew the struggle and could hold her hand. Someone who could shine a light into the darkness and call, "I'm coming for you! I hear you, and I'm on my way!" Like many others, I struggle with anxiety and depression. "Peace" reminded me that I'm not alone; that my anxiety does not define my worth or discount my faith in Jesus. It reminded me that other Jesus-loving women have hearts who pound wildly and minds that race beyond their control. They've been here too, entrenched in fear and anxiety, and they're ready and willing to sit with us in the darkness. They're ready to pray with us and lead us toward the light of hope and peace. God has sent them back into the forest to find us. And He is there too. Loving us, offering us peace and hope. If you've ever struggled with anxiety, if you've ever wished for peace, for hope, this book is for you. Becky's words are the hand you've been reaching for; the light in the dark you've needed. *I received a complimentary copy of this book through the publisher and NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. My positive review is not required.

Hopeful, practical words

5 out of 5 stars

Peace; Hope and Healing for the Anxious Mama’s heart could not be a more well timed book. Reading this books feels like having coffee with a friend. Becky’s words encourage us to address the unseen, but heavily felt fears and anxieties we face as mothers. She offers practical steps and ways to address our fears, and dig up the lies about God in which they are rooted. Freedom can be found. Hope is here. Peace is available. All in Jesus.

Much Needed Peace

Traci - 2 years ago
Becky always has a way of speaking right to my heart, right where I am. In the current state of our world mom's need nothing more than Peace right now. This book is full of life, practical ways to experience the Peace we are all searching for, and is written by someone who is right there in the trenches with us. No mom is going to be left run the forrest wandering. We are coming for each of you and leading you out of the darkness into Peace.

Can Be Life Changing

5 out of 5 stars
- 2 years ago
I highly recommend this book to any woman, especially mothers, who is suffering with ANY form of anxiety. I was diagnosed with Postpartum Anxiety after my last child was born. It was so bad that I sought medication and therapy which I believe God used to help me. It’s been well over a year now. I started reading this book and God placed it on my heart to attempt to go off the anxiety medication. I’m not saying this book can CURE you of your anxiety, but it truly helps give insight and suggestions to truly finding PEACE while also being interesting and “hard to put down” read. All of Beckys books are amazing. I actually stumbled across her books in the midst of my worst depression and anxiety moments last year and she was my “light” in the darkest times of my life. Then I heard about this new book and I had to read it ASAP. This book will help if not change your life.

We are not alone in our struggles, and this book definitely proves it and helps you find a way to cope/deal with your anxiety. I absolutely love how God brought this author into my life because she is amazing!

In the midst of everything going on in the world right now, this book is nothing if not perfectly timed! As a momma with some pretty bad anxiety this book spoke right to me. Many of the chapters felt like they were written with a birds eye view into my life. I think this is a must read book for every momma out there. Whether you have anxiety or not. There are just so many great reminders of God's presence in our lives! We are not alone in this life!
