Facing Your Giants: Worry
(Editor's note: This continues our series on "Facing Your Giants." Here's the story of David and Goliath on which the series is built, while past lessons have focused on anger and fear.) While we may not ever go toe-to-toe with a physical giant like David did, we all deal with hardships and temptations in our lives.

Facing Your Giants
We all have giants in our lives. We all face hardships, obstacles that appear insurmountable and problems that we think are too difficult to overcome.
