I just finished listening to this during a very cold walk and it was really appropriate for me at this time in my life. It had practical tools that are easy to understand and simple steps to follow in order to “calm the emotional storm”. The presentation listed the steps in which I should approach my feelings and I found it was very solution oriented for me. This presentation helped make me more aware of my thoughts and feelings and how to bring them to God. I also liked the approach of determining if my thoughts were a consolation or a desolation.

I really like how he talks about awareness of your feelings is key to changing them,,Also how he stresses asking questions of yourself and writing them down..sort of talking your way thru a situation.. Putting a problem into the "light" takes away much of the darkness it holds.. I like the spiritual aspect of the talk..good verses evil, because I know satan can reek havoc if you are not aware that he is there.
