Each of us has a picture of how life should go: The dream job. A perfect marriage. Loving, grateful children. But more often than not, life doesn't go according to our plan. So we try to force people and circumstances into our pictures. Our emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being depend upon how close reality resembles our pictures. We've hitched ourselves to the crazy train and we want to get off. But how?
Join counselor and teacher Julie Sparkman in Unhitching from the Crazy Train as she explores Jesus' gentle, yet costly, invitation to true rest - rest that isn't dependent on getting our way, but on the finished work of a Savior who knows what it's like to suffer deep disappointment, yet still submit to His Father.
To all who are weary, who are done, who are need of rescue: Jesus says, "come."

Lisa5 Stars Out Of 5We dont have to have controlFebruary 8, 2018LisaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This book is a must. It makes you stop and think in different situations and evaluate how you are walking out your life. Are you trusting God or are you trying to "fix" life yourself?
I like that at the end of each chapter the authors provided thought provoking questions that help you find clarity in learning how to walk out the Gospel and rest in his Word. We weren't meant to do this alone or figure it out by ourselves.
I am thankful for the opportunity to read this book at this time in my life.
I was given an advanced copy.
babs5 Stars Out Of 5unhitching from the crazy trainFebruary 8, 2018babsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0There really are no words to adequately describe how the truth written in this book, based on God's Word, have transformed my life and so many, many others. Julie's vulnerable way of allowing the rest of us to identify with her so that we don't allow ourselves to be swept away on the crazy train is no less than life changing. If you have a beating heart in your chest, you will find yourself on these pages and if you struggle with believing that God loves you, buckle your seat belt, because on these pages, you will have the opportunity to see how very much He does. Buy it. You won't be disappointed.

So often we miss out on the beauty because the reality of our pictures does not match what we hoped our picture would look like. So we feel and act crazy!! This is an easy to read book, lots if humor mixed with thought provoking insight. This is not a self help book. it is more of frame maker. How we view the picture of our story is the difference between joy and despair. Start today, and help yourself Unhitch From The Crazy Train!!
