Loved Back to Life Review


About the Book

Join Sheila Walsh on her journey from despair to joy

Beautiful and talented, Sheila Walsh was at the pinnacle of her career, appearing daily on television as cohost of "The 700 Club." One day she found herself walking away from it all and checking in to a psychiatric hospital, where she stayed for a month.

From the outside everything seemed fine, but on the inside Sheila was in trouble. In her journal she wrote, "Lord, please hold me. I'm falling into a dark well. I feel as if I am disappearing a little more every day. I am so angry inside that I am afraid of myself. I feel so alone." How did this happen? What brought her to her knees? "Loved Back to Life" takes readers on Sheila's journey of the soul from hopelessness to joy as she finds that although the road was scary, at every turn God beckoned her to follow and trust Him. And He did not let her down. (Goodreads)

 My Review

I wanted to read this book because I had seen Sheila at a Women of Faith conference years ago. I really enjoyed what she had to say and have read some of her other books. I really liked this book because it was honest and to the point. Sometimes books about a person's life can drag on but this one was great! Sheila has had quite the life and going from being on TV to major depression is extreme. I think this book was written well and I enjoyed how she described her situation and the events surrounding her many decisions. This book really opens up the fact that everyone struggles. 

This is a good book and I got a lot of encouragement out of it. 

"I received this book from BookLook bloggers for free in exchange for an honest review."
