Publisher's Summary

Includes an audiobook-exclusive bonus track with expanded coverage of related topics, including prayer and mental health, guilt and shame, and rehab and substance abuse. 

Mental illness loves to tell lies. One of those lies is that you really should be able to manage what you're struggling with. Pastor and psychotherapist Ryan Casey Waller says no. Mental health issues are not a symptom of a spiritual failing or insufficient faith; rather, suffering is the very thing our Savior seeks to heal as he leads us toward restoration. 

And yet, as Waller has experienced personally, the battle can be lonely and discouraging. But it doesn't have to be.

Combining practical theology, clinical insights, and deep empathy, Waller offers a rare mix of companionship and truth, inviting us to:

  • Have shame-free conversations about mental health.
  • Discover why self-knowledge is so important to a deep relationship with God.
  • Understand the intersection of biology, psychology, and spirituality.
  • Explore varying avenues of healing in community, therapy, and medication.
  • Be equipped to support loved ones while practicing self-care.

Waller bridges the gap between the spiritual and the psychological in this empathetic, imminently helpful guidebook, reminding us all that we are not alone. Hope starts now.

A vulnerability written book on Anxiety & Depression

Ryan (the author) shares his own story of getting honest with himself in a relatable way. His story sparks hope and shares insight for others suffering from anxiety and depression. It’s not often that a mental health professional shares their own struggles so openly. His words are comforting and this book is both an excellent read and a guide for what’s next.

An Important Read!

This was such an important read! The author tackles topics such as medication & anxiety, to more difficult topics including suicide and addiction. I was completely invested in this book from start to finish. The author is a Pastor and Therapist, and ties his beliefs & faith into his writing. I was intrigued by the title and am so glad I picked this up. I would definitely recommend for anyone who lives with mental illness, or who believe that they may.
