If you struggle with anxiety, you will find a friend in this book. I own a few books on the subject, but this one is different. It is both a personal story, a practical resource, highly informative and deeply spiritual. I found the book profound and readable, all at the same time. Larissa shares her own mental health journey with such honesty and vulnerability, yet is highly conscious of you the reader, serving you at every step of the way. I got the strong impression that my journey and my freedom actually mattered to her. That’s quite an achievement.”

Vicki Simpson, Minister, conference speaker and coach, C3 SYD Church, Oxford Falls, Sydney
