Stress happens. We all feel it. It steals our joy, interrupts our sleep, affects our relationships, and wears us down. We can't escape the things and people that cause it. We can't medicate it away. So we must deal with it. But how? How do we attain peace in life?

With compassion and biblical insight, pastor Vance Pitman calls us away from anxious living to a life of indescribable peace by applying truths from God's Word to the stress we feel in our

- schedule
- budget
- relationships
- decision-making
- emotions
- and circumstances

Discover the freedom and peace that are yours when you no longer allow stress to dominate your life and instead take hold of the soul-satisfying, joy-producing, fruit-bearing life that God intended you to live.


"Developing the habit of being continually aware of God's presence in your life is vital to reducing pressure and increasing personal peace in your heart. This valuable new book by Vance Pitman will show you the path to replacing stress with serenity. You need to read this!"

Rick Warren, pastor, founder of Saddleback Church, and bestselling author

"When we feel crushed by stress, most of us wish we could find practical counsel from a wise, trusted, proven friend who has lived through stress and knows how to thrive in it. This book enables us to get that kind of counsel from one of the most respected Christian leaders of our time. Some books seem to increase stress by promising quick fixes from people who have never been where we are. This book is different. It helps us in seasons of stress to see that we are not alone and equips us to find our way to the other side."

Russell Moore, public theologian, Christianity Today

"Vance Pitman is the master of applying biblical truths to the lives and routines of believers. This book, The Stressless Life: Experiencing the Unshakable Presence of God's Indescribable Peace, meets a huge need at a critical time. So many of us Christians need to grasp how Christ wants us to have the abundant life and not the stressful life. Indeed, this book is one of the most timely tomes I have read in years."

Thom S. Rainer, founder and CEO of Church Answers

"Books about escaping stress and finding peace may abound, but this book is one of a kind. As the book demonstrates, a stressless life comes not by mastering a few self-help techniques but by looking at God and the world in an entirely new way. By the time you get twenty pages in, you'll never look at your life the same."

J.D. Greear, PhD, pastor at The Summit Church and author of Just Ask

"I've seen Vance Pitman manage overwhelming stress with grace and wisdom. He lives the message of The Stressless Life, and I'm so thankful he has shared with us how we can live with less stress and more peace. This is a powerful book that can add remarkable value to your life."

Jud Wilhite, senior pastor of Central Church and author of Uncaged

"We live in a culture that tells us we need more. More money, more house, more platform, more beauty, more influence, more power. Along with our frenetic pace to get more, we also have acquired more stress. My friend Pastor Vance Pitman holds your hand through the pages of this book, teaching you how to have a stressless life. But be warned, this life of less stress will disrupt and sever your attachment to the 'more' so you can have more of Christ, his kingdom, and his peace."

Dr. Derwin L. Gray, lead pastor at Transformation Church and author of God, Do You Hear Me?

"Worry and anxiety are no respecters of persons. Keep living and these twins will try to break into our hearts and minds, robbing us of our peace. At no point has this been truer than in recent times. A global pandemic has pushed most of us into quarantine and onto the brink. Because of these realities, I can think of no better time than now and no better person to provide us with a providential resource on how we can experience the abundant life than my friend Pastor Vance Pitman."

Dr. Bryan Loritts, author of The Dad Difference
