How to Live in Fear
Mastering the Art of Freaking Out
Written By Lance Hahn
Being somebody who struggles with these things,I was very intrigued by this book. I requested it during a moment when I was feeling particularly frustrated and it arrived so quick. Lance is very open in his book and goes into detail about the struggles he has faced, where he was, what he was doing and how it impacted his life. It was nice for me to be able to hear about how somebody else struggles, it made me feel not so alone in my own struggles. I like the fact that he pulled a lot of scripture into the book. It was just scripture to encourage and tell us to keep going, but scripture examples of how others struggled. The book was separated into three main parts: Living in Fear: My Story, Living in Fear: Our Journey, Living in Fear: The Journey with our Father. Lance asked some of the same questions I do, "why me Lord." He felt some of the same feelings I have and described it in such a similar way, "the darkest hours(s)." This book held my attention right to the very last page. My husband and I read it together, it served a two fold purpose, I could relate to what he was saying as I live with similar struggles, while at the same time giving my husband a glimpse into the struggle. The book ends with practical ways to "master the art of freaking out." It is very encouraging and even includes a great prayer for times when we simply can't find the words our self. If you suffer from anxiety or panic or if you love somebody who does, this would be a great book to read.
