For many people, remaining optimistic and feeling positive about themselves and their lives is a constant battle — especially when circumstances are difficult and life is hard.
For others, negativity is something that only sneaks up from time to time, yet still wreaks havoc in their hearts. Regardless of the root causes, once pessimistic thoughts permeate our minds, our feelings and emotions begin to control us instead of us controlling them. Eventually it doesn’t seem possible to stay positive, happy, and full of joy, and negative thought patterns shake our faith, causing us to sink emotionally, mentally, and spiritually over time. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Despite what storms roll in, hearts anchored in God don’t sink. When we change the way we think, we can change the way we feel and live, even if our circumstances remain the same. Intentionally embracing the opportunity to experience a transformed heart and a renewed mind opens the door for a changed life, because a positive mind will always lead to a more positive life.
In Unsinkable Faith, author and Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker Tracie Miles offers hope for women who struggle with negativity. Each chapter explores Tracie’s and other women’s personal stories, showing how they rose above their circumstances by transforming and renewing their minds. Unsinkable Faith is a breath of fresh air for anyone longing for a heart full of joy, an unbreakable smile, and a new, more optimistic perspective on life. This book will equip you to:
—Replace pessimism with positive thinking by becoming the captain of your thoughts; —Learn how true joy and happiness are based on choice, not circumstances; —Overcome unhealthy habits of negative thinking by intentionally implementing three easy mind-renewing steps; —Stop feeling hopeless and pitiful, and start feeling hope-filled and powerful instead; and —Discover that when you change the way you think, you change the way feel, and in turn you can change your life completely.

Tough stuff happens in life. All. The. Time. Every day we face things as humans, moms, wives and women that could very well break us. But it doesn't because of Him. Because of our faith in a God that carries us through we can get through even the toughest of what life can throw at us. That is the message that author Tracie Miles sends in her book Unsinkable Faith. She reminds us that this stuff that happens doesn't have to hold us hostage. that we can change the negative for positive and find hope in the hard times. She writes as though you are in the room having a conversation, sharing her personal journey and encouraging the reader with quotes from famous authors, writers and most importantly the Word of God. The last few years has brought some stuff that otherwise could have cause me to want to run for the hills, but this book reminded me that I have to cling to Him and He will guide me through as He has done so many other times before. Life is not always going to be good but God always will.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
