[I’m thrilled to share today’s post with you by Sacha Rose from Clothed With Dignity! She will be talking about her experience with anxiety and the scriptures she’s used to help her get through tough times. I will also be making a few additions to her post but I will put my comments in purple so you’ll know the difference :). Now let’s get started and see what she has to share!]
Mental health is a bit of a taboo subject in modern Churches.
There aren’t a lot of pastors that openly talk about Christians who have mental health issues such as anxiety disorder or depression, and what can be done in order to help them.
Oftentimes Christians will brush it under the rug and say that you are lacking faith, or need to pray to God more.
We know that Jesus died for our sins, for the sins of the whole world, and there is nothing that is impossible with Him.
There are so many testimonies throughout time of people breaking free of their mental health issues that Jesus has healed them from.
But this isn’t going to be the case for everyone. For many, including myself, there are ongoing struggles that we have to work through.
I suffer from anxiety and have done so for a very long time. Some days are harder than others, but what truly helps me get through each day is my faith in God alone.
You might be dreaming of living in a house that is like a refuge from the outside craziness in the world.
But when you look around your home, it seems like the crazy has seeped in there too.
There’s clutter everywhere and you are overwhelmed and don’t even know where to start.
And if you’re depressed, the thought of going through all of those things causes you even more despair.
I truly do feel for you and hope that this post today will encourage you to get started decluttering, even if the thought panics you or makes you feel hopeless.
If you can follow the eight steps that I’ve laid out for you in this post, you can be on your way to having the haven spa-like house of your dreams!
A bad break-up.
A sick child.
Medical bills piling up with no idea of how you’re going to pay for it.
The truth is there are so many potential anxiety triggers that it can be hard to slow down long enough to identify what in the world is causing those knots to tighten in your stomach.
I know everyone experiences anxiety from time to time.
There are unexpected circumstances that come up in life that leave us feeling more worried, scared, or anxious than usual.
Experiencing anxiety every now and then is normal.
But I’m talking about the kind of anxiety that hovers over you to the point where you can’t enjoy activities that you used to love.
The kind of anxiety that debilitates you.
If that’s the kind of anxiety you have and you want to know what might be triggering your anxiety then please stick around.
Because identifying what triggers your anxiety can help you stop an anxiety attack from happening in the future.
So let’s dive right in so you can start to get the help you need.
Plus, I have free digital and printable anxiety triggers checklist that I want to give you free of charge which I will tell you more about later!
And the digital version has spaces for you to journal your feelings which will talk also talk more about later.Continue reading

Should I try online therapy is the same question I asked myself over 10 years ago when I was suffering from depression and anxiety.
I knew I needed help escaping the dark prison that was my brain but the thought of talking to someone face to face was not an option for me at that time.
This may be the same situation you see yourself in at the moment and so I’m going to tell you upfront:
Yes, you should get online therapy and in today’s post, I’m going to tell you why and where you can get it.
This is what we’ll cover:
I can’t lie…
I got emotional while I was creating this grief journal and I’m not even grieving the loss of a loved one.
That’s how powerful these prompts are.
I looked them over and it tore me up thinking about how I might need these prompts one day when I experience the pain of loss.
If you or someone you know is grieving, I truly believe that journaling is an activity that will help them heal.
That is why I created this journal…to help people heal in a healthy way.
You see what many of us want to do when we are wheeling from losing a loved one is bury the pain.
Maybe then the pain will go away.
Maybe then you won’t hurt so bad.
But let me tell you.
That don’t work.
When you are confronted with the pain of a searing loss you will deal with that pain one way or another.
It will either be in a healthy way or an unhealthy way.Continue reading
It was of an English woman who would go to the grocery store just so she could talk to the cashier.
She said that If she didn’t do that she said she could literally go months without talking to another person. What’s even sadder is that she’s not alone.
Loneliness is at an epidemic level. In the UK, an estimated 9 million people are as lonely as this woman.
