Medicine For The Soul

Sometime the best medicine is some time alone with a great book and a journal. Sheila Walsh's Beautiful Things Happen When a Woman Trusts God is one such book.

In Beautiful Things, Sheila discusses the process of learning to trust God. Her journey to trust includes the companionship of ten biblical characters. Her transparency and openness are infused throughout the book. Intimate details of her personal struggle with trust, fear and depression become the stepping stones on which she is able to triumph.

I loved the layout of this book. This is the first Sheila Walsh book I have ever read. The introductory details about her psychiatric history helped me understand her motivation behind the book. I enjoyed the included bible study and discussion questions at the end. These questions are a great opportunity to internalize the truths Sheila discusses into my personal life. This was my first Sheila Walsh book but it will not be my last.
