You're invited to join our latest book club, hosted by bestselling Catholic author Gary Zimak!

Are you trying to kick the worry habit?

Do you want to let go of anxiety and find the peace that comes from trusting God?

We’re so excited to begin a new Book Club in March, featuring the #1 bestselling book by Gary Zimak, Give Up Worry for Lent: 40 Days to Finding Peace in Christ.

Gary Zimak makes no secret about the fact that he's a worrier, which makes him the perfect person to write encouraging books for other people who worry too. Give Up Worry for Lent is a devotional for people who make a habit of worrying. I appreciate that Gary never takes the tactic that if only you trusted God more, you magically wouldn't experience anxiety anymore. He does talk about trust, but in a way that encourages the reader instead of dismissing their suffering.

Each day's reflection begins with a short Scripture passage; following this, there's a reflection (about a page long), an area called "Respond" with a spiritual action item, often including a way to turn around the tendency to worry or be anxious and instead, turn to God. A short prayer wraps up the day's section.

Here's how it works:

Gary will host a series of 4 Facebook Live presentations each Wednesday at 11 AM Eastern, beginning March 3. Special Book Club articles by CatholicMom contributing writers will be posted at 1 PM Eastern each Saturday in March. If you subscribe to our Daily Digest or Sunday Brunch newsletters, you’ll find those articles included.
