Laura Fleetwood sat down with Christy Boulware to talk about mental health struggles. Laura and Christy met because of a shared experience with anxiety. Both experienced dark moments in their lives due to anxiety and both women want to help others understand anxiety does not define who you are.
A little bit about Christy:
I am first a passionate follower of Christ, wife to a hunky man named Troy, and mom of three beautiful children. I am a women’s ministry leader and female Christian author with a deep desire to set as many free from the chains of fear and anxiety as possible. I founded and led the not-for-profit organization Fearless Unite (formally Fearless Women). Through conferences, retreats, Bible studies, devotionals, and a depression & anxiety blog, I dream of drastically decreasing the alarming statistics of fear and anxiety in our world.
Highlights from the episode include:
*Laying down superwoman tendencies and discovering how to fully surrender to a trustworthy God.
*Stopping anxiety before it starts by recognizing smoke alarms.
*Understanding categories of people that are safe to share your anxiety struggle with.
*Learning why the presence of fear does not mean your faith is weak.
*Discovering where science complements God’s Word to achieve a balanced approach for overcoming anxiety.
Christy’s book, “Nervous Breakthrough”, will teach you how to overcome fear and anxiety in a world that feeds it. You can order it now through her website or Amazon.
