Freedom From Anxiety

 

Anxiety has become consuming for people of all ages in our culture. How do we find freedom as Jesus followers from being driven by worry and fear?  In this four part series, we'll look at how to break the patterns of anxiety and learn to use practical tools that will help us change over time, as we surrender and trust the Lord more in our lives.
