Sheila Walsh has amazing, God given insight into women. She doesn't write her books on an academic level but on a real life level. The Storm
Inside is something that every woman needs to read. Walsh takes the 10 big issues we face (like anger, shame, and heartache) and she breaks
them down and addresses how God feels about those issues and what His word says to guide us through them. There is no condemnation in
this book. Only loving guidance and the offer of redeeming ourselves through God's word. It really is a salve to the soul. If you are like me you
will glance through the 10 topics and pick a few that you know are a struggle for you but then as you read the book God will reveal the emotions that you hide even from yourself. So while I was interested in this book just because I am a Sheila Walsh fan, I found it to be heart changing. I recommend it as a must read. I received a free copy of this book as a member of the Launch Team in exchange for my honest review.
Have you ever at any time of your life felt Heartache, Disappointment, Fear, Bitterness, Forgiveness, Anger, Regret, Abandonment, Shame or Insecurity? Then you need to read The Storm Inside! Sheila Walsh breaks down each one and gives you the tools to Stand Through Your Storm with the help of our Lord Jesus. As I read through The Storm Inside I felt I could identify with the stories. My storm(s) paled in comparison to those in the book however it was a storm nonetheless. Jesus will be there no matter when others fail. He is always there! We need to seek God through His word and constant communication with Him through prayer. The more we know of Jesus, His love for us and His word the less room there will be for the feelings listed above. These 10 chapters show over and over again how you need to seek Jesus to weather through your storm. Thank you Sheila Walsh!
I was able to be on the launch team for this book. Since My first WOF event in 2011, I've become a Sheila fan-I guess you could say I'm "hooked." How I loved this book, every chapter has something that a woman can relate to, and if you can't relate now I'm sure sometime in your life you will. I really resonated with the last few chapters the most. Although I have tons of highlights I loved this little and simple quote (on pg. 169) "God's steadfast love never ceases. His mercies never end." I can't wait to get my hands on this book!
I have had the opportunity to see Sheila Walsh two times at Women of Faith events near my hometown. I love hearing her speak and I love reading her books. What she has to say speaks straight to your heart and gives you that feeling like "Wow, she knows exactly what I'm going through or exactly where I have been!!" When I found out that she had a new book coming out about the storms in our life, my first thought was I have to have this book, she wrote just for me. Needless to say, I was right and boy do my toes hurt!!!!
Do you have trouble with forgiveness? Not only with forgiving others but asking for forgiveness also. I do and the moment I started reading I knew right then I had amends to make and I did, I didn't hesitate to contact those people. Not only does she tackle the storm of forgiveness or unforgivenss, she tackles insecurity, fear, disappointment and many more topics that we as women face.
One quote from the book that cut like a knife is:
"Forgiveness is not about removing someone else's liability, but about setting our own hearts free."
Powerful words from a powerful woman of God!!! I definitely recommend this book to all you will not be disappointed.
