Lance Hahn (www.LanceHahn.com) announces the release of his new book How to Live in Fear: Mastering the Art of Freaking Out. This book serves as a how-to guide for individuals who struggle with fear and is written from both a personal and Biblical perspective to help people thrive through their fear. Lance Hahn’s book addresses a topic most churches and Christian organizations don’t speak about. Living with anxiety and panic disorder doesn’t need to be crippling, as this book explains exactly how to prepare and press on to live a rich, fulfilling life.
“Although occasional anxiety is completely normal, men and women suffering from a panic or anxiety disorder find their anxiety doesn’t go away, but actually gets worse as time passes. They may feel as if they are constantly on edge or cannot sit still, even feeling like they are having a heart attack or may die. Others experience extreme fatigue, light-headedness or nausea unable to do normal tasks. Sleep problems often accompany this type of disorder, and people may find they aren’t able to concentrate. These are only a few of the signs and symptoms associated with a disorder of this type,” Nicole Andrade, spokesperson for Lance Hahn, announces.
The ADAA (Anxiety and Depression Association of America) cites that 40 million adults in the US are affected by anxiety disorders (costing $42 billion annually). WebMD reports anxiety disorders now account for more mental illnesses than any other disorder known today. Approximately 18 percent of adults suffer from a disorder of this type, and the National Institute of Mental Health reports certain factors make a person more susceptible to an anxiety and panic disorder. Individuals who were shy as children, females, those who are divorced or widowed and those who have a family history of mental disorders may be more at risk of developing a disorder of this type.
“As Lance Hahn has been in the shoes of those who suffer from a panic or anxiety disorder, he shares personal experiences that make the reader feel more at ease and as if they are truly understood. Hahn talks about nearly collapsing before he was to preach in front of over a thousand people and losing it on an airplane. The transparency seen in this book allows the reader to recognize they aren’t alone in their suffering,” Andrade continues. (#YouAreNotAlone)
Due to lingering stigma and personal shame, People often hide their disorder from others, feeling as if it is something embarrassing they shouldn’t share. The church-at-large also tends to avoid discussing this subject, yet now is the time for a change. The church needs to let sufferers know they are normal, and this book is the first step in starting an important conversation that must be had. Believers will no longer need to feel guilt about their illness when it becomes an open topic of conversation and increased understanding.
“The book is packed with practical advice and tips, along with a number of relevant scriptures. Readers learn to relax in the face of their fear, regardless of whether it is real or imagined. Although Hahn still experiences moments of panic, he continues to live a full life and shares how he does so in this amazing book. Anyone suffering from a panic and anxiety disorder or love someone struggling with this issue will benefit greatly from reading this book,” Andrade declares.
