"Dr. Haymon  has  shown the unique ability to use anecdotes from biblical passages to teach people to relieve everyday stress often caused by such factors as alcohol abuse, drugs and smoking.  This book should be a textbook for parenting classes and should be on the bookshelves of every parent.  While profound in thought, it is not difficult to read."
Col. (ret.) Will G. Merrill Jr.


“An outstanding book expressing God-given truths for mental health. The dynamic concepts of this book epitomize the highest principles of scientific and social research as classical methods (scripture and psychology) are used to define, understand, and overcome problems that cause human stress. It also provides counselors, and pastors, with effective analytical tools. What better way to climb out of the pits of stress with a God-design and God-given tool that really works! This book has had a great influence on my pastoral counseling and teaching. It is a powerful resource for those experiencing stress in their lives and complex life situations that seem impossible to overcome. I highly recommend Stress: Climbing Out of the Pits with God for pastors and laypersons working with parishnories in pastoral counseling and spiritual direction.”

“Stress: Climbing Out of the Pits with God is the perfect companion when you realize you’re over your head in burdens. In a conversational manner, yet God-inspired approach, Dr. Haymon allows you to identify the culprits that have caused your spiral downward. The good news is his use of scriptures as a source of strength to cling to until you’ve completely climbed to safety…”

“Are you looking to find your way out of stress? Dr. Haymon dissects stress with precise detail using the Word of God. The use of scripture, real-life examples and parables along with plain language definitions uncover what stress really is. I found that his use of the parable of talents from the Bible illustrates why we should use our gifts to better the world and not totally for financial gain. He also gives direct biblical reference to the idea of “what God has for you is for you” — reinforcing that no man can take away what God has given to you. There are several ideas given to reduce stress such as: creating your personal plan; minimizing your distractions; communicating your issues; taking vacations; regular exercise; and forgiveness.

Dr. Haymon has clearly recognized his gift from God — communication of the Word. His straightforward explanations of stress and its effects should be applauded…. The stories, examples and use of scripture will capture your attention, stir your spirit, and turn your heart. The conclusion offers an excellent summary.”
