Book Review: Tied in Knots: Finding Peace in Today's World.  By Greg Willits.  (Our Sunday Visitor)


Are you anxious?  Can’t find the joy in life?  Are you stressed out?  Are you stuck in a rut and just going through the motions, whether at work, at home or in your faith life? Then this book may be for you.

Tied in Knots by Greg Willits has written a wonderful little book based on his own experience to help us look at the knots in our lives that may be the cause of anxiety, stress or malaise in our lives.  Greg Willits shows us how  he was able to untangle those things that were binding him down and through his expert story-telling, we too can discover and untangle the knots in our life and rediscover the joy we lost.

For those of you who have listened to Greg (and his lovely wife Jennifer) over the years through podcasts or Sirius Radio (Rosary Army, The Catholics Next Door, Adventures in Imperfect Living), will recognize the style and humor as well as his struggles with obstacles to channel his gifts and creativity while providing for his family. Besides engaging stories that anyone will be able to relate to, the book offers practical tools and prayers to break through those knots that keep you from finding the joy and passion in life again leading to lasting peace.
