BOOK REVIEW: Beautiful Things Happen When A Woman Trusts God

As Sheila Walsh left the hospital after being treated for clinical depression, she was ashamed that she needed a prescription to feel “normal”.  She was also fearful about having to start all over again.    

In her book Honestly, Sheila talks about being crippled with depression and how she wound up in the psychiatric ward.  Learning to start over was not easy – neither was learning to trust again.  Now, 15 years later – Sheila is back to tell the rest of her story.  After leaving her position with CBN, as talk show host with Pat Robertson, Sheila had to learn how to face her fears and live all over again.  As she sought God’s direction for her life, she felt led to attend Fuller Seminary in Southern California where she also met her husband, Barry.   

 In this book, Sheila shares what she has learned from this very painful journey and how it has helped her minister to other women who share the silent desperateness that Sheila has felt.  This is a story of pain, perseverance and hope, told by a woman who had the courage to put herself in the public eye and publicly share a very controversial struggle.  This book also includes a discussion guide and a bible study in the back.
