One in five of us experience an anxiety disorder in a given year, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. One in three experience one at some point in our lives. We don’t always know the name of our anxiety or the cause of our worry. If you are like me, you don’t even always realize you are feeling anxious at all. We just know something is off. 

We fight against this with an array of coping mechanisms. We stuff our closets full of clothes we never wear. We scroll through social media or binge Netflix to distract us. Our lack of peace reveals itself in our vain search for more affirmation, more accolades, more likes, or more followers. 

Sometimes that unrest in our souls shows itself in a feeling of isolation even when surrounded by people. It pops up when we work too hard or play too frantically. We end up self-medicating or overindulging. We find our minds stuck on questions like, “Why me?” and “What now?”

These are the symptoms of a life without peace. None of us would care what we had, who we had or if we had anything at all, if we had peace. But when we lack peace, it makes everything else feel lacking.

Peace tells our hearts that everything’s okay. It speaks to the mind and removes the worry and the doubt. It calms the emotions and soothes the spirit. No matter what life has for us, when we have peace we can smile and feel secure. 

You can have this peace. Others have chosen this peace, and so can you. My new book, I Choose Peace: Raw Stories of Real People Finding Contentment and Happiness, tells the stories of people who chose true peace. People like, 

  • Kathie Lee Gifford, TV personality
  • Chip and Joanna Gaines, hosts of HGTV’s Fixer Upper
  • Phil and Kay Robertson, stars of A&E’s Duck Dynasty
  • Shawn Johnson, Olympic gymnast
  • Albert Pujols, Major League Baseball all-star
  • Brian “Head” Welch, Korn lead guitarist
  • and many more
