Jesus loves you.
He wants you to bring Him your worries, fears, and doubts. Even when they seem to take over. Even when they won’t go away. Yes, even when you struggle with mental health.
“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full,” Jesus informs us (John 10:10).
Mental health struggles can hinder us from living this full life. Jesus wants better for us.
Jesus is a healer. In Scripture we find Jesus healing all the sick (Matthew 8:16), all who were ill (Matthew 4:24), and all who touched his cloak (Mark 6:56). These recounts of Jesus’ healings do not separate physical from mental illness but include healing to anyone and everyone with any kind of ailment.
Today, Jesus still restores broken bodies, hearts, and minds. He loves you. And He cares so deeply about your whole self. Shouldn't you, too?

Holding up the power of Scripture and prayer as well as the power of great therapy, Laura is a trustworthy guide to help you take a step forward on your mental health journey.” -- Alli Patterson, author of How to Stay Standing and teaching pastor at Crossroads Church
“When the Scriptures say to love God with all our hearts, minds, souls, and strength, it means just that—to bring all of who we are before God and others. Mental health is just a fancy term for caring for these human vessels well and allowing God to draw us closer to His heart of grace. Laura’s invitation to let Jesus into all of who you are, providing you with needed encouragement and practical tools, will be a trusted companion wherever you find yourself today.” -- Terra Mattson, MA, LMFT, LPC, counselor, author, and founder of Living Wholehearted and Courageous Girls
