By Dr. Jennifer Londgren
Exhausted . . . fragmented . . . fuzzy . . . frazzled. That’s how a lot of people describe their mental and emotional health these days.
Maybe you can identify. Maybe like so many others, your inner life feels like a tiny little flame flickering in the wind, at risk of going out.
God understands. He knows right where you’re at, and he wants to help you find healing, wholeness, and renewed joy in him.
In this book, Dr. Jennifer Londgren pairs biblical wisdom, practical principles, and clinical insight to help you recover peace, joy, clarity, and purpose. Throughout the book, you’ll also find examples and reflection breaks to help you go deeper and apply what you learn.
A committed believer who loves God’s Word, as well as a licensed marriage and family therapist with more than ten years’ experience treating patients on the brink of burnout, Dr. Londgren has a passion for helping people become the best version of themselves—the version God created them to be.
I have read a lot of books that could be considered "self-help" and this one is very refreshing. It's a short read, organized into chapters that can be used as personal devotion or read in a small group study. Mostly based on scripture, yet supporting with psychology research asked me to see that self care is from God and is not a selfish or impossible thing to reach. I will read this book several times and share it with others.
Thank you for the review, Nicole! We're glad to hear the book has been a blessing to you!
Very well written by a knowledgeable author. Very helpful!
Thank you for the review, Beth!
It was Scripturally nourishing and comforting to me, recently widowed. I passed it on to my daughter who is struggling in her marriage. It's good to know where to reach a Christian conselor.
Thank you for your review - Christian counselors are a blessing from God!
Thank You for all you do
Thank you, Leonard!
This is not a book for people suffering from mental health disorders or illnesses.
It never mentions the life saving effects of medications or how it’s advice only helps if someone has a healthy baseline.
I wish it had a disclaimer mentioning that it is a conglomeration of advice for neurotypical people on general wellbeing.
When will our churches stop confusing medical problems with spiritual problems? It is beyond frustrating. Please stop permeating the stigma that a “stronger faith will fix that problem” when the problem is an illness that needs medical intervention.
Thank you for your review, Rebekah. We agree that mental health is something to be taken seriously. This book should not be used in place of the advice of a qualified mental healthcare provider.
