Book of the Month

Broken by Fear, Anchored in Hope

'Has the power to plant seeds of hope in your heart that when the storms come, it’s possible not to be afraid.’ – Rachel Gardner ‘Disarmingly honest, powerfully disruptive and reassuringly scriptural. A rare and precious gift.’ – Krish Kandiah One in four of us will experience mental health problems but true resilience is ours for the taking. When shame, fear and despair threaten to fill us, it can be all too easy to resort to self-medicating through consuming, working, or other distractions. Rob Merchant
