Overview TOO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED
From her early life in Harlem, to leading New York's oldest American Baptist church as its first female pastor, to becoming a wife and a mother, to a recent appointment on President Clinton's Initiative on Race and Reconciliation, Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook is living proof that stress doesn't have to stress you out. In Too Blessed to Be Stressed, Cook shares her testament of faith and proceeds through the seasons of her life, slowing down along the way to provide some of her favorite gospel hymns as well as the touching stories that are behind the songs you know and love so well.
Cook is quick to point out the many changes that will come in life - both good and bad - then focuses on the one thing that is unchanging and constant...God. He "is the same yesterday, today, and forever" (Hebrews 13:8). And He has blessings prepared for you - blessings that will keep you sane when the rest of the world goes crazy.

Too Blessed to Be Stressed Apr 28, 2001
This book is on the mark for anyone not just women who are moving at a very fast pace and need to find peace and comfort in their daily lives. The Prayer of page 12, I call "The Stress Reliever's Prayer" is very powerful and has been of great comfort to everyone I have shared it with.
Dr. Cook's approach to women of the Bible brought them in to the "sisterhood" of my life like I have never understood before. I highly recommend this book at a training I do on stress management called "Are you too stressed to be blessed?"
For me personally, the book has been a great source of peace and comfort and a guide to seek and trust in God. Once reading it and not all at one time, I recommed her other book, SisterStrength as a companion to TBTBS. She indeed takes you on a personal journey to find less stress and more peace in your life. If you are seeking to manage the stress in your life this is a good investment to start with. TDBS
A great book to take to your next level of success... Feb 18, 1999
I took this book with me to the hair salon. A stylist sitting a little distance away asked if what the title listed was possible. Answering her was easy...the blessed state of mind from reading the book caused my lips to open to a resounding YES!!!! We as women are indeed "too blessed to be stressed". Thank you Dr. Cook for bringing life into such a dynamic perspective!!!!
A celebration of Healing and Praise! Jan 31, 1999
Too Blessed to Be Stressed found me on the first pages of the book and ministered to my spirit throughout. Often we get so caught up in the drama that we lose sight of the choices we make that create our scenarios. I found myself humming me back to a centered wholeness and peace that I don't want to let go. Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook, thank you for this wonderful work. It has certainly blessed my life and the lives of my Sisterfriends!
Life Changing Dec 10, 1998
This book was a God-send. I recommended it to my sister who is a Federal Judge. Growing up in Kannapolis, NC (only 8 miles from Concord) I felt an immediate bond with the author. This book is a must for every woman. You will laugh, you may cry, you will sing, you will shout hallelujah but most of all, you will never be the same.
...an awesome, inspiring, confirming, motivating, must have! Oct 31, 1998
Dr. Sujay has done it again! This dynamic, blessed & assured Woman of God has given a self-less, priceless gift of "spiritual homeopathy" to all women in ministry through this great writing, "Too Blessed to be Stressed". I saw all those books at Hampton Ministers' Conference Bookstore in June 1998 and took it for granted to get one the following day, and guess what, I came back 5 hours later after changing my mind and not a one was left! Sold ouutttt!!!! OOOOuuuchhh! Well a member of my Church had gotten a hold of one and blessed me with it as a gift. I was estatic! I couldn't put it down, I read it and read it & finished. I used it to teach my group meeting for the Connecticut State Missionary Baptist Convention's "Commission On Women In Ministry" where I am the Chairperson (1996-1999). How inspiring was the prayer for God's will to be done in our lives. Dr. Cook answered the inevitable -- how do I know when it's time to make a move? No more wondering, just assured guidelines to follow, thanks to Dr. Cook. Women, if you do not have this book in your lap, then your library, you are definitely "lacking" a blessing from God! Dr. Cook, keep up the wonderful blessings that God has so richly endowed you with, God bless your husband and children as well.
