Checking in: How Getting Real about Depression Saved My Life---And Can Save Yours (Hardcover)
"I need help."
Those three words saved Grammy Award-winning singer Michelle Williams's life. After decades of sweeping her anxiety and depression under the rug--even during her years in the spotlight with Destiny's Child--Michelle found herself planning her own funeral. Realizing that she needed immediate help and could no longer battle her anxiety and depression alone, she checked herself into a treatment facility. When she came home, she was energized and determined to check in on a regular basis with herself, God, and others.
Practical, engaging, and full of wisdom, Checking In will give you the tools you need to:
- Tear down the walls around your vulnerability that are hindering your healing
- Reject the lies of anxiety and depression and replace them with the truth of God's Word
- Trade toxic thought patterns for lasting joy
- Find freedom by forgiving yourself and others
An uplifting, behind-the-scenes look at one woman's path to healing, Checking In reminds you that you're not alone and that God is not yet finished writing your story.
