We all experience hard times. However, not all hard things can be classified as trauma and even fewer develop into PTSD.

Have you ever heard someone say, “Trust Jesus to make you happy.” or “He has a demon in him.”? While both of these can be true, we should never discount the value of therapy and medications.

Mental illness is like any other medical condition. Finding a good Christian counselor &/or psychiatrist and proper medications can make all the difference in how one recovers from trauma.

Prayer and support from fellow believers are also vitally important.

I received this book FREE from the author, publisher, distributor, or other source. My only obligation is to provide a fair and honest review.
