Summary

We've all experienced that moment where we wish we could start all over again. Failed marriages, lost friends, addictions, lost jobs. This is not the life we imagined. Yesterday can sometimes leave us stuck, sad, shamed, scared, and searching. 

Sheila Walsh encourages listeners to face the pain head-on and then start again, from right where they are. She shares that when she discovered "I'm not good enough, and I'm good with that", everything started to change.  

In It's Okay Not to Be Okay, Walsh helps women overcome the same old rut of struggles and pain by changing the way they think about God, themselves, and their everyday lives. She shares practical, doable daily strategies that will help women move forward one step at a time knowing God will never let them down.

Wonderful Read

I love listening to the author's voice! I followed along on my kindle and listened to her beautiful Scottish accent as I read. Her testimonials and scriptures are written for our encouragement! I have followed Sheila Walsh for years! She has been through similar problems that I have been through so it's like listening to a friend! God bless her heart ❤

THIS BOOK BLEW ME AWAY

Unbelievable!!I Can’t go into detail but many things were discussed in my life, what I went through, how I processed things. How could this be? I cried my heart and soul out.
My name is Sheila too. You had spoke all about me. I’m pretty lonely. Married 50 yrs. One daughter one Grandson. Both live far away. My mom & dad have pasted away. I have one brother lives in Maui and one sister which just had open heart surgery. She lives sorta near. Only one thing I had 2 rectum surgery in 2012. The doctor botched both surgeries. I’m in 24/7 horrific pain. Had total knee replacement January 7, 2019. Well slipped in the shower and broke on the same leg as the surgery my kneecap three weeks ago. Back into surgery but now wit screws. I can’t tell you how your book touched my everyday existing.
Respectfully,

Honesty about oneself

I was shocked to learn G-d really loved me.
I have been a failure in life. Not worthy. Never good enough. He loves me. wow

Real, relatable, refreshing

What really came to mind was what I watched on A Different World years ago by Whitley Gilbert the Southern Bell- Relax, Relate, Release. In “Its okay not to be okay” she told of her person life that it was almost like she was sharing details of my own life without the judgement that I put on myself where I could relax and be myself and be real enough with myself about my own identity in Christ. I related in a way that I would answer the questions she posed as if I was talking to a good friend that I’ve known all my life and the release of the guilt I’ve put on myself because of what others think that I then turn into my own thoughts and have this inner voice that sounds like mine but when I really think of it was the voices of all the people, the past experiences the depression and anxiety I’ve inherited due to all of what life has thrown or I’ve put myself in. It was refreshing to know I was not alone and we always feel alone when we are in our space, in our own heads. I’ve read it several times that saying.... it’s ok not to be ok but to see/hear how ok it is and that you are loved in all your flaws and brokenness and you are NOT alone it’s just a really great book. Listening to it on Audible in 2 days while gardening. Very therapeutic for me. Find something you get lost in and spend time there listening. It’s a good experience.

Wish I could meet Sheila in person!

I have only ever read one other book written by Sheila Walsh and I remember being impacted by it in a positive way. This is the first of her books that I have listened to...and let me tell you- what a pure delight! Her beautiful accent, her vocal tone, her inflection, and her pure humanity just radiates through my earbuds! There was so much encouragement, and wisdom in this book. I also had times I literally laughed out loud- she's that good of a story teller.

I am now a Sheila Walsh fan, and want to hear more from her.
