If you like Sheila Walsh's music, you must read this autobiography. It will open to you the meaning of many of her songs such as "Hide" and "The Heartache No One Sees." A fascinating, revealing work on depression and recovery.
I am reading this book because I have suffered from anxiety/depression for the last 7 years. Sheila has given me a lot to think about---fear, shame, isloation. She has also given me the desire to face these isssues in my own life. Thank you, Sheila, for being transparent.
"Write what you know" is the usual advice most published writers' would relay to novice writers. Scripture tells us that as we praise "the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from Christ"(2Cor1:3,4). Sheila Walsh humbly shares from her heart what was once considered unheard of in traditional Christian circles. What she reveals is a personal Savior who desires for us to be honest with Him and ourselves as His Truth make and sets us free!
Honestly was a great book and quite a deal at these prices. Walsh entered into an area few Christians talked about (prior to the book) and sadly, few acknoweldge that it is even possible: Depression as a Christian. I know, it is quite real and a condition many wrestle with in silence or fear of what friends or others may say. Pick up the book and find some freedom if it is for yourself, a friend or a family member. Honestly is honesty at its finest.
