We all have fears and insecurities as well as strengths and resilience. The trick is to keep them in balance.

We speak with Deb Hogan, of Walk Out of Worry Ministries. Locked in fear for many years, she has grown through her fear to learn to manage her health. In addition, through her very beautiful music and her faith, she has reached out to others to help them also Walk Out of Worry.

From the Mailbag, we received a question from Simon, who has recently been diagnosed with a complex medical condition, involving tumors of the brain, eye, and kidney. “This is all very confusing… I keep wondering whether I can expect to live to a normal age in relatively good health, or should I maybe be planning my life differently to deal with a lower age expectancy???”

We asked Dr. Gary L. Wood of Wood & Associates to comment on this question. He and Deb outline some strategies for acknowledging and reducing fear, and dealing realistically with a problem through knowledge, logic, and skills you can develop yourself.
