As they each tell their stories, they weave in advice and counsel along with Scripture. While there is not a lot of substance (the usual answer of reading the Bible and praying), they do have much to add that you don’t typically hear in Christian circles.

They show that there is a place for medication, that it is not something objectionable for Christians. The emotional, spiritual, and mental causes of depression and anxiety have a physical and medical manifestation. Treating the cause does not necessarily treat the physical impact/damage that has taken place.

Still, the rest of your life, you will have to continually train your thinking, root out the lies, and replace them with truth.
If someone close to you is dealing with anxiety or depression and you want to supportively understand, or if you are experiencing it yourself, this easy read will offer you understanding and hope.
