Book Review: Worry Less. Pray More: A Woman’s Devotional Guide to Anxiety-Free Living by Donna K. Maltese

Fantastic Little Reminders – Perfect for When Worry Strikes

Devotionals are hit and miss for me. I love ’em or I hate em’. They’re such a personal thing to read and if you don’t connect with the writing, it’s hard to get anything out of the text itself.

I was provided with a copy of Worry Less. Pray More by Donna K. Maltese to preview. I will admit I haven’t read the entire book. I’ve skimmed through quite a few entries (there are a lot! 180 readings and Scriptures – all dealing with leaving worry in God’s hands and letting go of anxiety.) One of my favourite snippets was this one:


“Let God’s beautiful rainbow amid the clouds be a reminder that He will make something good come out of the storms…”

Here is my review, originally posted on Goodreads:

This devotional is filled with quick and easy to read snippets to remind us that we do not need to live anxious or fearful lives. The entries are not deep. They are not exceptionally unique. They are, however, fantastic little reminders – bite-sized doughnut holes of inspiration – to snack on once in a while in a world where it’s easy to be consumed with anxious thoughts. I’ll keep it handy for those days that my mind needs quieting. Maybe less of a guide, and more a collection of sticky notes to reference quickly.

I was provided with a copy of this title via NetGalley, courtesy of the author and/or publisher. All opinions are my own, given with thanks for the opportunity to review this book.
