Best-selling author and popular communicator Sheila Walsh offers practical, non-threatening advice for battling challenges in her book “It’s Okay Not to Be Okay.” Walsh, a depression sufferer, provides examples from her own life in overcoming and accepting hard things. She says the book is “not self-help, (but) God help.” Walsh writes, “You don’t need to be okay because Jesus has made you all right. He’s paid the bill in full. He’s covered our ‘not okay-ness.’ Okay doesn’t live here but Jesus does.” Walsh suggests various action steps at the end of each chapter. She cautions about struggles in trying to change and encourages readers to start again and again if necessary, and keep moving forward. The book is an inviting read that may make readers newly aware of their misconceptions of how the Lord believes about and acts toward his people. (Baker Books)
