About the book


For your soul.

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety and depression affect  40 million adults in the US age 18 and above. This is 18% of the total population.

I also read about a group of college counseling directors that were surveyed. 95% said, “the number of students with significant psychological problems is a growing concern in their center or on campus.”

In fact, this same article suggested that the biggest problem impacting college students today is anxiety; depression was a close second.

It’s possible that you are one of those who really do struggle with worry, fear, anxiety, or depression.

Possibly, you deal with all of these challenges. Or, you may have picked up this book because you would like to experience more rest, more peace, and calmness deep within the depths of your soul. You are weary.

There is also a chance that your mom, grandmother, teacher, coach, or one of your mentors gave you this book. You are reading it to be nice to them. That’s okay too!

No matter your reason for reading, the goal is the same. We are going to learn how to find deep rest for your soul.

Peace in all aspects of life:

  • Over worry
  • Over anxiety
  • When depressed or sad
  • When bullied
  • Or, when your friends leave you out or don’t understand you
  • In your addictions
  • In your health and finances
  • When you feel stressed
  • In your appearance
  • As you choose your major
  • As you decide your career
  • For your future
  • As you are dating or not dating
  • When you feel alone
  • When you lack inspiration
  • As you feel homesick
  • When there is FOMO
  • When you feel competition 
  • As you deal with all the pressures of your life, there can be peace.

Quiet and peaceful no matter how loud the storms get.

That’s what we are going for in this new devotional book!
