"I hope that as you start praying the Psalms, you will feel His presence in all the things that you do and you will feel His guidance through both storms and long periods of waiting. I hope that you will see God as your life and breath instead of as your religion."

Look Inside the Book or Listen on Audible*

The Psalms are among the most beautiful poems ever written, but sometimes they feel very far from us and our daily struggles and goals. In Psalms for Trials: Meditations on Praying the Psalms, Lindsey Tollefson shows that the Psalms are not just pious words for the religious, but that they are meant to be our prayers for every trial we face, just as they have been a comfort for generations of Christians before us, including King David and the Lord Jesus. The Psalms allow us to pour ourselves out in prayer to God and to receive the comfort that comes from the promises found in His Word.

This book includes forty-four bite-sized reflections on the Psalms, each ending with concrete recommendations on how to use the Psalms in your prayers and more importantly, how to live them out. After you have read this book, your prayers will never be the same again.

You can also purchase this as an audiobook here, on audible,* on SCRIBD, and wherever audiobooks are sold.

What People Are Saying

"This book is such a blessing. I keep it near my bedside table and flip thru different sections occasionally to re-up on the wonderful encouragement it contains. Grab a copy for yourself and 3 friends." ~Summer Jaeger

"The world was made for this glory, and it all starts with normal obedience, normal faithfulness, and normal listening to what the Word of the Lord is telling us. Lindsey offers us here just this kind of normal obedience. Look to the Word, look to your life, apply what you learned, repeat it forever." ~From Rachel Jankovic's Introduction

My Goto Gift for Trials!

This book has been such a blessing to me personally and to many loved ones. I found it right after a devastating divorce and have read through it yearly since. The short chapters are an ideal size to ponder over without making a big time investment (perfect for a single mom). It’s such a comfort during trials of many kinds and has help to inspire me to learn to sing the Psalms as well as commit large passages to memory. I’ve been gifting copies to women in my life as they go through various trials and they’ve given positive feedback too! One of the biggest things is that it has played a role in getting my aunt back attending church after a decade+ absence. Glory be to God!

Lindsey has written a beautiful book that truly shows how important it is to keep God's word close to your heart. Psalms for Trials is beautifully written. It takes our hearts into a deeper understanding of how important and pivotal the Psalms are for life in all circumstances.

Peace in the Storm

This is one of the most helpful Christian books I have ever read. It helped me focus my mind on the word of God while facing a hard providence. I took the author's advice to meditate on and pray the Psalms and I found it calmed my spirit and gave me hope. The writing is insightful and practical. I can't say enough good things about the book. I've listened to it twice and purchased the paperback.
