“Renew Breaking Free from Negative Thinking, Anxiety, and Depression” is important reading for anyone seeking freedom and deliverance from anxiety and depression. Readers will find powerful keys for replacing these strongholds through the joy by recognizing their true identity in Jesus.
Author, Julie Winter, has a burning passion to help people exchange toxic thinking for joy, receive healing by releasing forgiveness, and breaking free from the bondage of shame and guilt. She provides the reader with Biblical solutions for renewing the mind, maintaining a healthy thought life, and achieving victory while overcoming oppression.
Winter writes to help the reader understand what happens in the body, mind, and spirit when a person is anxious or depressed and to provide some practical strategies and tools for prevention and treatment for healing and recovery. She defines the physical, psychological, and spiritual impact of depression on Christians, who often deal with a sense of guilt because of a misunderstanding of the causes of anxiety. Actual case studies and stories illustrate the application of the principles and other material presented throughout the context of the book.
Powerful Action Points provide suggestions for meditation, prayer suggestions, and practical pointers that will enable the reader to put into action the lessons being learned through real life application. Winter’s work is thoroughly researched with documentation and chapter endnotes which can be used as a resource for additional reading and study.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
