Sometimes you come along another ministry or individual that is doing what you want to do eventually so well that you need to stop and point everyone else at what they are doing. Amanda Porter is one of those people who has really shown to have some amazing work and her latest project Dear Anxiety, Let’s Break Up shows just that.

I knew a lot of thought leaders talking about Christianity and mental health that I decided to follow on Instagram, but Amanda is only the second person I discovered via Instagram, all by happen stance. She approaches mental health within the Church from similar backgrounds as I do, with practical approaches and lived experience. She is a nurse practitioner in psychiatry working on her PhD in Integrative Mental Health and Mind-Body Medicine as well a pastor’s wife.

So when I saw she had done a series on talking about anxiety within a Christian context, I wanted to check it out. Let me say that this series makes me feel like I just went through a grad class! She hits the connections of mental health with Scripture, the problems churches tend to bring, how counseling and treatment have a place for someone with anxiety, and you will even leave with several coping skills (some of which she has you do and wisely doesn’t even tell you they are coping skills).

I’ll be honest, if you are a Christian who struggles with mental health, I highly recommend looking to get this webinar. It takes about an hour to get through but broken down into quick modules that each preach something amazing.

I love how she even phrases the cost of the webinar: ” For the cost of a copay, let me be part of your recovery plan.” That being said, the sale ends December 15. So go check it out now here.
