Tommy Nelson and Steve Leavitt have paired up to pen a book on dealing with anxiety and depression from a Christian perspective. "Walking on Water When You Feel Like You're Drowning: Finding Hope in Life's Darkest Moments" shares personal stories and triumphs of Tommy Nelson as he faced severe anxiety and depression. This book offers a lot of valuable wisdom to those who might also be facing these problems, or those who have a family member or friend going through depression or anxiety as well. The book takes a practical approach to explaining anxiety and depression, where it comes from, and how to deal with it. The book offers helpful information to questions those struggling may have, such as whether or not to take medication, and how they can change their mindset to help them in their troubles.
I thought this book was well written, and clearly comes from someone who knows first hand what a battle anxiety and depression can be, and how overwhelming it can feel to face. I thought this book offered sound advice for those who are dealing with anxiety or depression, and really broke these problems down and offered real advice that can be used in healing.
