Sheila Walsh, Christian Vocalist, featured "Women of Faith" speaker, popular Bible teacher and best-selling author releases "The Storm Inside" February 11th. With a narrative about emotions, Satan and God's truth for women of all ages, especially for "mature, faithful, and wise servants of Christ," writes Walsh.
I was surprised to read "mature" women in Christ until I read the introduction, where Walsh writes about speaking to a large group of "ministry wives" in the spring of 2012. She arrived in the 200 seat room early to do a microphone check. Then placed 4x6 cards and pencil on each chair and said a brief prayer for the woman who would sit there.
Her message theme from Psalm 86:11"would focus on the power of telling the truth," something Walsh hadn't always found easy. Although she believed in transparency she could only share parts of her story and couldn't talk about her "fear, shame and anger" until she experienced a "crisis of faith" that set her free. That morning Walsh would discover she "had a lot of company."
The audience overflowed with women just like the featured speaker, women whose devotion to God was unquestioned, who had walked with God for many years, "yet the very same burdens weighed down their hearts" that burdened Walsh's heart.
A beautiful exchange took place that day that needs to be read in the author's own words. It was an exchange that made Walsh feel as if she stood on holy ground as "God in His grace pulled back the curtain and allowed her to glimpse a profound "truth that could set His daughters free."
That "glimpse" gave birth to this book about feelings, Satan and a "truth hope connection." She writes, "Truth is the light house on a stormy pitch-black night that steers us clear of the feelings that would wreck us." Everyone knows feelings can change moment-by-moment, however, truth, like God's Word is rock solid and never changes.
Join Walsh on a journey of hope through ten transformative chapters of biblical truth supported by scripture with illustrations from Walsh's personal journey. Where readers learn to identify and overcome the "fiery darts" of Satan and live in the freedom God intends for His daughters. If you struggle with heartache, disappointment, fear, bitterness, un-forgiveness, anger, regret, abandonment, shame or insecurity, "The Storm Inside" is a must read.
