Yesterday can sometimes leave us stuck, sad, shamed, scared, and searching. Sheila Walsh encourages readers to face the pain head on and then start again, from right where they are. She shares that when she discovered “I’m not good enough and I’m good with that,” everything started to change.In It’s Okay Not to Be Okay, Walsh helps women overcome the same old rut of struggles and pain by changing the way they think about God, themselves, and their everyday lives. She shares practical, doable, daily strategies that will help women move forward one step at a time knowing God will never let them down.
“Sheila speaks from a place of victory, grounded in the knowledge that we are meant to walk ‘side by side with Jesus, learning to live freely and lightly.’ Her encouragement and practical guidance will provide the tools you need to start again, discovering that through Christ you are always enough.” – Lisa Bevere, New York Times bestselling author and cofounder of Messenger International
“Sheila Walsh doesn’t merely write words, she lives her words–and the Word. When things aren’t okay, I honestly don’t know a wiser, more life-giving, Jesus-clinging guide than Sheila Walsh.” – Ann Voskamp, New York Times bestselling author of The Broken Way and One Thousand Gifts
“In this powerful book, Sheila shares the transforming truth that life is a process and that God never leaves nor forsakes us. There are rarely quick fixes in life, but Jesus offers us hope, healing, and wholeness. Okay doesn’t live here, but Jesus does.” – Christine Caine, founder of A21 and Propel Women
“A beautifully practical way forward through the ache of feeling not-enough. Sheila reminds us that God is so near and willing to meet us in our deepest places of weakness and hurt.”– Jennie Allen, author of Nothing to Prove and founder and visionary of the IF:Gathering
“A friend once told me that people aren’t interested in what we got right nearly as much as how we’ve experienced divine redemption when we got it wrong. Sheila is always refreshingly transparent about where she’s gotten it wrong so as to make Jesus the sole hero of her story. It’s Okay Not to Be Okay is a deeply encouraging – quite possibly transformative – tome for stumbling saints!” – Lisa Harper, bestselling author and Bible teacher
