In this uplifting look into mental health, self love, and faith Sandi Brown, the founder of  JOY FM in St. Louis, and her counselor, Dr. Michelle Caulk, walk through her therapy journey, answering the question so many Christian women ask, “What do I do when I know God loves me, but I don’t like myself?”

When Sandi began her journey towards healing and freedom, she thought she was alone in her struggles. By working with Michelle, the two found that scores of women experience a disconnect between how they see themselves and God’s image.

Healing Out Loud captures many of the insecurities the modern woman faces in her walk with Christ. Written in conversational prose, Brown and Caulk’s combined voice creates an accessible path for readers to face their vulnerabilities with biblical insight.
