This is what I call a self -help book. Shelia talks about 10 different subjects that happen in life and considers them GOD's trials and difficult situations. We all go through it, but we all have different answers and choices that we make. We all blame ourselves, someone else or GOD for having an unhappy time in our lives. Shelia talks about how she has had these times and also shares others stories that have shared with her. Her answers are biblical and she does supply bible verses to back up what she is writing about. She also puts a spin on situations, that some of us (me included) would not think about as the answer that GOD wants us to know and learn during this time.
I would recommend this book to those that are going through a difficult time and would like to be encourage to get through it. I like how Shelia has always put GOD first in her writings and will always stay true to his word. If you need a plain, easy read for helping during hard times this book is for you.

Sheila Walsh is a WRITER, a REAL writer and with her beautiful style she will encourage you to meet the Storm-Stiller of the Bible, Jesus. Not only does she share her own story with beautiful transparency, but she also unpacks Scripture in an authentic and helpful way. This book is for you if you have ever felt the sting of heartache, disappointment, fear, bitterness, unforgiveness, anger, regret, abandonment, shame or insecurity. Sheila delves deeply into each of these topics in her book 'The Storm Inside'. It is a MUST read! Do yourself a favor and buy one for you AND a friend!! :)
I'm a huge fan of Sheila Walsh and this is easily her best book by far. The book hit to the heart of me with it's truth and honestly. We don't have to live with the shame, regret, disappointment and so many other things from the "storms" of our lives. We are beautiful children of the heavenly King who loves us so much.
Sheila brings us to the feet of our Savior and helps us to see that we can truly let go of the things that bring us low. Thank you so much Sheila for this amazing book.
God has a great way of getting my attention. Earlier this year I joined the launch team for this book. It came just at a time when I needed it most. Sheila Walsh is great at showing how anyone can have storms and we can get thru them. We are not alone in what we face. Thank you Sheila for the opportunity to help launch this book!
"Trade the chaos of how you feel for the truth of who you are." The subtitle drew me in to consider the storm inside.
Sheila Walsh shares deeply and honestly about the storms that rage inside us--heartbreak, disappointment, insecurity, despair, insignificance, rage, regret, fear, shame and unforgiveness. Each chapter concludes with a section "Standing in the Storm" that offers insightful questions, Bible verses of hope and a prayer. Sheila points the reader to the Lord, the One who can quiet those storms. "Our culture throws broken things away, but our Savior never does" (p.18).
This is her best book yet. Thank you, Sheila, for your honesty and openness that will help many to heal.
