Book Jacket:

A woman’s guide to emotional wholeness

Twice as many women as men will experience depression sometime in their lifetime, and episodes for women are likely to start at earlier ages, last longer, and recur more frequently, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians (www.aafp.org). Many women are given medication to treat their troubling emotions, but medication alone does not treat the underlying problems that trouble the mind and spirit. Counselors Elyse Fitzpatrick and Dr. Laura Hendrickson provide biblical guidance on how to solve emotional problems biblically.

With a foreword by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, this straightforward, insightful volume is a one-stop resource for those suffering from troubling emotions who want to understand the biblical perspective of their problems, written by two Christian counselors, one of whom used to prescribe psychiatric medicines.
