Dora here. I’m thrilled and honored to welcome my sweet friend, Shelley Wilburn, to Fiction Faith & Foodies today. She’s an encourager to the nth degree, always ready with a kind word and powerful message of hope. Which makes me even more excited to share that Shelley just released a companion workbook to her book, Walking Healed, A Journey of Forgiveness, Grace, and Hope. Who doesn’t yearn to unshackle the chains of anxiety and depression and walk in glorious freedom? Thought so. 🙂
Welcome, Shelley! Love that beautiful smile! ❤
Being an Indie Author has its ups and downs. One of the downs is impatiently waiting on a physical proof copy of your latest book. This is so you can actually see that it is going to look like you wanted it to, before you approve it for release to the general public. It’s this waiting game that I recently played. However, I’m also glad it’s over.
I recently released for publication the Walking Healed Companion Study; Finding Healing, Forgiveness, Grace, Hope, and Your Purpose. Wow, that’s a long title! But there’s so much inside this little workbook that a short title just wouldn’t suffice.
The Walking Healed Companion Study is written to be paired with my first book, Walking Healed, A Journey of Forgiveness, Grace, and Hope. It is a five-week Bible study that will help the reader dig deep into not only God’s Word, but within themselves to find and put into practice healing, forgiveness, grace, and hope. The final week of the study focuses on finding your purpose and utilizes the previous weeks’ lessons and how God works all of them together to show you the path to finding your purpose.
God has a great big plan for your life. In Walking Healed and the companion study, readers will discover bits and pieces of His wonderful plan. They will discover that no matter what you’ve been through or are going through, God loves you dearly and wants to heal you and walk you through your journey to finding all the above mentioned things.
In the first book, Walking Healed, I culminated several blog posts into my journey of healing. It’s a process. Although God healed me of over forty hears of depression, anxiety, intimidation and self-esteem issues, He walked with me every day to show me His plan and has allowed me to write in such a way as to help others who are going through the same issues. No matter if it’s depression, anxiety, addiction, abuse, or whatever the issue, I know I was commissioned by God to write these books. My story could very well be your story, or help you in discovering yours.
Readers will gain a new outlook and hopefully realize that this is a life journey. Being healed is one thing. Walking it out every day is recovery, just like an alcoholic or drug addict. We don’t get healed one day and never have another issue. We learn to walk every day choosing to stay healed. We choose to move forward and not backward. In the Walking Healed books, readers are encouraged to do just that. It’s like an extended road map from someone who has walked that journey and left pebbles for others to follow.
My hope is that anyone who reads the Walking Healed books will finish strong and discover the Light to lead them on their journey because, life is a journey. It’s an adventure that we are meant to live victoriously. Walking Healed… one day at a time.
Walking Healed is a journey. Life is a journey. None of us have done it before. We choose to walk in healing, forgiveness, grace, hope, and our purpose daily. Therefore, we’re all just muddling through life trying to figure out how to get through it with as few bumps and bruises as possible.
Nevertheless, everyone has an issue or several issues to deal with on a daily basis. Whether you struggle with depression, addiction, oppression, anxiety, illness or disease, or abuse, none is bigger or less important than another. What does matter is that you have a God who loves you dearly and never meant for you to carry this alone.
Shelley Wilburn knows and understands a life lived in the “black hole” of depression and intimidation. She suffered it for over forty years. She also knows what it’s like when God heals you from it all, taking you on a wonderful journey of walking healed.
In the Walking Healed companion study, Shelley uses God’s Word (the Bible) and her book Walking Healed and walks you through five weeks of healing, forgiveness, grace, hope, and finding your purpose. Each section will bring you closer in your relationship with God while also utilizing healing, forgiveness, grace, hope, and purpose in your own walk. Don’t bother to buckle up for this adventure. You’ll want to be free to move around and find each of these five treasures for your personal walking healed journey.
Bring a friend. The more the merrier.
