Leave Yourself Alone: Set Yourself Free From the Paralysis of Analysis (The Eugenia Price Christian Living Collection)
First published with great success in 1979, and now reissued with an updated Preface, Leave Yourself Alone is a book Eugenia Price’s readers will want to add to their personal collection of her writings.
According to Eugenia Price, the emotionally healthy person is the one who is focused outside of the self, and whose attention is directed toward God and other people. In Leave Yourself Alone, she explores specific areas of life–work, prayer, conversation, relationships–where people can and should “leave themselves alone.” In her own inimitable and charming style, Ms. Price prods her readers to turn to Him in times of trouble. She states, “As long as we are pulled inward, wringing our own hands in despair and self-attention, we don’t have a free hand to reach for God’s grace. If we mean to leave ourselves alone, we must keep a free hand for what He has to give. He always knows exactly what we need.”
