More About Becky Harling & Eugene H. Peterson
Becky Harling is married to Steve Harling. They got married at age 21 and went right into pastoral ministry. They have four kids and now have five grandkids. They have had the opportunity to minister all over the United States and in many different countries around the world.
One of the reasons Becky is so passionate about helping women find hope is because she knows what it’s like to feel hopeless. She is a survivor of both breast cancer and childhood sexual abuse, and understand what it’s like to feel as though God is far away. Part of her journey of healing includes doctors’ visits and counseling appointments, but a significant part of her healing journey was learning to praise God above the chaos of her life. Praising God was the secret to awakening hope in her heart. "It wasn’t that I praised God for the horror of cancer or for the evil of sexual abuse. I simply learned the power of praising God for who He is above the chaos in my life. As I praised Him, a strange thing happened, God’s presence came close, and Jesus began to awaken hope in my heart."
Becky has written five books: "Freedom from Performing," "Finding Clam in Lifes Chaos," "Re-Writing Your Emotional Script," "The 30-Day Praise Challenge," and her newest book that will be released this year, "The 30-Day Praise Challenge for Parents."
The vision of Becky Harling Ministries is to awaken hope in the hearts of women by teaching them to encounter the Living God through the Bible, embrace their identity in Jesus Christ, and experience the presence of the Holy Spirit through praise and worship.

The Perfect checklist for spiritual health Apr 25, 2006
Experience is the best teacher. Becky's experiences parallel the lives of many women who are seeking a closer walk with God. She provides succinct summaries of action steps that busy women need to review when feeling overcome by the turmoil of living in the world. This is a book that will be read over and over again in every season of a woman's life.
Practical tool Apr 25, 2006
Becky's book helped me to focus on Jesus when I am going through a crisis or I am tempted to worry. I also use it in mentoring situations with other women who get bogged down in circumstances. Focusing on the "I Am" statements of Christ is a practical way to rise above the circumstances. Becky Harling's conversational writing style and her friendly wit make it seem like I know her. I can't wait to read more that she writes.
Good mentoring book Mar 22, 2006
I am on my second time through this book,taking it more slowly as I meditate and review the basics of the Christian walk of faith. This is a good book for different stages of life as well as for mentoring younger women. Anxiety and "busyness" can rob us of our joy and peace in Christ and Becky uses clear and relevant examples to display Biblical truths as well as remind us of how to keep focused on Christ as the source of calm in our lives. Well done!

In the stories she shares, her honesty and sincerity bring to light some of the things we all struggle through. She also offers a reminder to see the bigger picture and rely on the peace and hope that can be found in Jesus Christ. It was a pleasure to read and an encouragement to me in my own life.

Becky Harling's "Finding Calm in Life's Chaos" is filled with wisdom for women in every season of life. This book is brimming with biblically-based insights that are not theoretical, but practical in nature.
