Even in the middle of brokenness and overwhelming pain, God has a plan and a purpose for your life, and he is ready to heal you in ways you never thought possible. Join Shawn Johnson, lead pastor of Red Rocks Church, as he gives a searingly honest portrait of anxiety and depression and shows readers how to fight back and live free. 

Shawn Johnson was the lead pastor of a thriving, fast-growing church. He was supposed to have it all together. But he was also struggling in silence with anxiety and depression, suffering from debilitating panic attacks that told him the lie that this would never end, that he'd spend the rest of his life in excruciating pain.

In Attacking Anxiety, Shawn vulnerably shares about this dark time and offers those familiar with that same struggle everything he's learned in his battles with anxiety, depression, and hopelessness. Join Shawn as he:

  • Exposes the lies that lead to isolation and replace them with the truths that are essential to survival
  • Reveals the things that most of us don't realize are adding more anxiety and depression to our lives and replace them with the wisdom and support that lead to true freedom
  • Explains what to do when you, or someone you love, is in the middle of a panic attack
  • Guides you through what you need to know in order to start attacking anxiety and depression

Praise for Attacking Anxiety:

"In our current culture where depression and anxiety are at an all-time high, Attacking Anxiety comes at just the right time. This book is the perfect resource to read if you, like me, have battled anxiousness, loss of control, or even the inability to cope. Pastor Shawn dives into how we can live a life where anxiety isn't our label or our future. He shows us that we don't have to just sit back and let it attack us, we can choose to fight back--with the weapons of God's Word--and overcome the anxiety monster once and for all and live the life God always intended for us to live: free."

I have battled anxiety for well over 25 years. I've been on medication coupled with therapy as well as read more books than I can count on this subject and have yet to conquer it.
Shawn Johnson's, Attacking Anxiety, just may have changed the game for me.
What sets this book aside from the many I have already read is that it speaks TRUTH, not just on Anxiety & Depression, but spiritual too.
It's a short and easy read but packed with affirmation and coping skills to fight the anxiety demon that often cripples us from living our life with joy.
I highly recommend this book to not only help overcome anxiety but to strengthen the bond between you and the Lord, who will always be there to back you off of that ledge when you feel overwhelmed with panic.
This is my first encounter with Shawn Johnson but I will be seeking out more of him. He's straightforward and holds no punches. He speaks truth.
Thank you NetGalley for approving my request.

I suffer from crippling anxiety during to chronic pelvic pain. I feel always on edge, jittery and borderline crazy for feeling this way. Reading Shawn's personal struggr with anxiety as a Christian was relevant. The book is encouraging, instructional, and a look at the pain of anxiety. It is so good to know that you are not crazy, you are not alone, and this will end.

I needed this book! I read this book during a period when I wasn't feeling well and had a lot of panic attacks and it truly helped me. If you struggle with the same issues I couldn't recommend it more.
