My Review

I think Soul Mend really gives an in depth and unique look at both the physical and spiritual aspects of negative emotions which could come from trauma, etc. I appreciated the author's research on how our physical health is so effected by our emotional health and how we have to get to that root of spiritual and emotional health to at least maximize the level of health we can achieve individually. Emotions are a strong force and I think we underplay the cumulative effect negative emotions can have on us long term. There is Scripture, questions to consider, and prayers to contemplate as we dive into rejection, fear, panic, not being able to forgive, and more. I felt it was very practical and insightful as well as Scripture and research centric which I always feel is really important when diving into a book on health and theology. The only thing I felt the book lacked was the reality of the need for psychiatry for some, although to be fair, the book was focused more around those who may suffer physical symptoms because of an emotional load, and not those with clinically diagnosed illnesses. Overall, I can't say I agreed with it all, but this book would be good for those facing a difficult time, dealing with trauma, or looking for a self-help book to come out of negative emotions that seem to really take a toll. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own.

More from Luann

SOUL MEND was written to break people out of their emotional chains! I know first hand what such things as anxiety, strife, guilt, and unforgiveness feel like. I know first hand how devasting these emotions can be on the physical body. After walking through some of these issues and recovering from a debilitating diagnosis I decided it was time to go back to school, get my counseling degree, and help other people!  In SOUL MEND I cover the three sources of negative thinking and how they impact our emotional and physical health. There are chapters on; a broken heart, stress, guilt, self-reproach, anxiety, and anger/bitterness.  Each chapter contains study questions to help the reader identity and heal from toxic emotions. The book ends on a uplifting and encouraging note on how God created you to walk in His destiny and His goodness. There is always a purpose in your pain and the Bible is clear that what the enemy meant for evil God promises to turn around for God when we seek Him (Genesis 50:20, Romans 8:28). I am excited to go on this journey with you and help you discover the healing and destiny that awaits you.
