"Walking On Water When You Feel Like You're Drowning"

"Walking On Water When You Feel Like You're Drowning" by Tommy Nelson and Steve Leavitt is a Biblical approach to helping people deal with anxiety and depression. Nelson and Leavitt tackle the difficult issues of causes of anxiety, obsessiveness, and depression and how biblical perspective can aid in the healing process.

This book tells personal stories of those struggling with one or more of these issues which helps the reader feel like they aren't alone in their troubles. There are constant references to Scripture and these references give inspiration and hope.

I thought this book offers a pretty comprehensive look at anxiety, depression, and obsessiveness. Chapters tackle issues such as: "What's Going On In My Mind?"; "What's Going On In My Spirit?"; "How Did I Get Here?"; and several chapters on recovery and healing.

Overall I think this book was a great resource for those struggling with anxiety or depression. This would also be a great resource for loved ones of those going through these issues as it gives a comprehensive overview of these issues and really can help you understand.
