Look to Jesus: How to Let Go of Worry and Trust God, by Dawn Klinge

Trusting in the Lord with all my heart and letting go of worry is my heart's desire.   As someone who grew up in church, I've long known a lot of the “right” answers when it comes to sounding like a Christian.  The truths of the Christian faith have been in my head for a long time.  But just because something is in your head, doesn’t mean it has worked its way into your heart.  Only the Holy Spirit can do that part.  I have been learning to trust Jesus throughout my life and I’ve experienced the blessings of what happens when I do.

The truth of what it means to trust Jesus has been working its way into my heart by the grace of the Holy Spirit.  I’m still a work in progress.  Trusting in Jesus is something I want to do more of and understand more fully- so I wrote a book about it.  This book is for people like me, who want the idea of trusting God to go deeper than head knowledge, people who want to trust Jesus with all of their heart and aren’t always sure how to do that.  It's for people who know that trust is not something they can just conjure up on their own.  It’s about asking the Holy Spirit to come in and change our hearts.
