Sheila starts with a personal story about experience within that particular storm, then defines the storm in more detail and its impact, then discusses biblical stories of that storm. But she doesn’t leave each chapter there. She takes the reader through the storm to a more positive place of growth. The chapters cover heartbreak, disappointment, unforgiveness, shame, regret, fear, insecurity, insignificance, despair, and rage. Each chapter focuses on one storm and a place of (not easy) recovery. For example, the chapter on regret has a subtitle of “From Regret to Rest.” The chapter on disappointment says, “From Disappointment to Hope.” Each chapter also ends with reflection and action questions, plus a prayer. In every chapter of this book, I found some statement I related to. Sheila continues to reiterate that we all have value to God, and our feelings do not always determine truth. Her writing is straightforward, but she also uses some unique analogies that keep the reader interested. (Example from page 3: “…as common as rain in Seattle or backpedaling from a politician.”) She tackles real issues with depth, like the church often failing those who are grieving or “deserve” versus “worthy” (one of my favorite sections). She also asks questions along with the reader, like why it often feels like God ignores some prayers but not others. While she doesn’t have all the answers (who here does?), every chapter is very Scripture-based. This theme expressed on page 40 recurs throughout the book: “[When we trust God], it’s not that we won’t hear the screeches of the enemy’s lies in the night, but we will refuse to chart our course by them.” Disclosure: I received a free copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    This book rubbed me raw. Wow! Sheila has a way of writing that makes you confront yourself. The brokeness, the fears, the insecurities... she pulls them out and shows you just how special God thinks you really are. She wraps her powerful story around truth and offers you a chair and hug of comfort. She shows you your value through His word and how precious you are in His sight. She doesn't claim to be perfect but REAL. Her vulnerability draws you in and you can't help but love her for who she is This book rubbed me raw. Wow!

    I've been reading a bunch of this type of book over the past year as I prepare to release a book that's somewhat related. I like Sheila Walsh's comfortable writing style. She comes across as a friend who wants to share her heart ... and heartache ... with readers. She shares some heartbreaking stories within the pages of the book, but in each chapter, turns the reader back to the truth found in Scripture that can bring calm to the chaos--at least for the hurting heart, if not to the circumstance I've been reading a bunch of this type of book over the past year as I prepare to release a book that's somewhat related.

    After reading Chasing Francis, I wanted more. So, I picked this book off the ever growing TBR pile and began reading it like a daily devotional. Sheila writes as if we're sharing an intimate conversation. Her words are thought-provoking, heartbreaking, and inspiring. I recommend this book to any woman seeking a relationship with God. I don't have the right words to share how much this book has spoken to my heart. After reading Chasing Francis, I wanted more.

    If it's the lessons we resist that we need the most, I must have really needed this one. Just ask my poor husband who got the stink eye when he handed me this book as a gift. I mean, the nerve! What was he trying to say anyway? It's not like I don't have my emotions perfectly in check!? My point is, this book is fabulous. So thankful God finally gave me ears to hear. And so thankful for my husband who faithfully loves me through all of life's storms. If it's the lessons we resist that we need the most, I must have really needed this one.

    Sheila addresses the internal storms that all women face in their walk with God. This book assures us that we are not alone and that though pain and despair may last for a night joy awaits us. Emotions are not evil and we need to stop pushing them down and start dealing with the hurt and pain that is very real. I highly recommend this book to those who are struggling with the storms that rage inside.

We find ourselves teetering somewhere between everyday chaos and crisis. We can feel a storm brewing, we are in the middle of a storm, or we are facing the aftermath of a storm. But don’t be afraid because it is possible to grow through turbulent times. Storms show you what’s really going on inside, reveal what you really believe, and actually make you stronger.“ The Storm Inside is a powerful book written for we women that somehow seem to spend a good portion of our lives either about to be run over by a storm, are in the middle of a storm, or have just come through the other side of a storm a bit battered and bruised. Those storms of our lives sap our strength and resolve and leave us precious little resources for the next. In this book, the author – Sheila Walsh – shows us that while we may not be able to avoid the storms, we can triumph in and through the storms. By way of her personal stories and anecdotes and merged with sound Biblical Truths, Ms. Walsh offers help in our heartbreaks, disappointments, shame, regrets, fears, insecurities, feelings of despair and being insignificant and finding restoration from our rage. This is a profound book that deals with topics that I would venture to guess to most, if not all, of us have found ourselves at one time or another. It’s time to lose the chaos and embrace the truth.

    The Storm Inside is all about how to deal with overwhelming emotions so that they do not overtake us. In her many travels and speaking engagements in front of women, Sheila Walsh has found a pattern among the women. We all deal with the same list of strong emotions. They are: heartache, disappointment, fear, bitterness, unforgiveness, anger, regret, abandonment, shame and insecurity. She has taken one chapter to talk about each of these emotions. In each chapter she has stories, lots of stories, The Storm Inside is all about how to deal with overwhelming emotions so that they do not overtake us.

They are: heartache, disappointment, fear, bitterness, unforgiveness, anger, regret, abandonment, shame and insecurity. She has taken one chapter to talk about each of these emotions. In each chapter she has stories, lots of stories, some inspiring, some encouraging, some about herself, some about people she knows, some from the Bible, and all which either illustrate the strength of the emotion for that chapter or the strategy to beat it. I love that she supplies the remedy and not just talks about the problem. And they all in one way or another involve God. Even more than that they can be boiled down to believing God’s promises and what He says about us. But they are all fleshed out and made specific to each emotion. Overall I found the book to be well-written and I found the author to be compassionate, understanding and kind towards those who are struggling with these strong emotions. Never condemning nor shaming. At the end of every chapter there is a clear step by step list of what to do as a strategy to not be overwhelmed by a particular emotion and most also have a short sample prayer to pray. I would be surprised to hear that someone was struggling with every emotion that she talks about but I would be equally surprised to hear that someone is not struggling with at least one of them at least some of the time. If you can relate to that list of emotions I posted up above then check this book out. It may be just the thing you need to gain victory over that thing.

    I absolutely love Sheila Walsh. She is authentic, raw and real. She doesn't spew platitudes, instead she joins us where we are and understands our struggles. Her love of Jesus knows no bounds, and I love that she has been blessed and has blessed us with her sharing. I absolutely love Sheila Walsh. She is authentic, raw and real.

    The Storm Inside by Sheila Walsh is a book for women who are facing difficulties that this life brings or who have gone through storms that so many women face. Sheila has traveled worldwide and has spoken to millions of women over the past 30 years. Throughout her experiences, she has seen the same few issues facing women come to the surface. Throughout this book, she digs into these ten feelings: heartbreak, disappointment, unforgiveness, shame, regret, fear, insecurity, insignificance, despair The Storm Inside by Sheila Walsh is a book for women who are facing difficulties that this life brings or who have gone through storms that so many women face. Sheila has traveled worldwide and has spoken to millions of women over the past 30 years. Throughout her experiences, she has seen the same few issues facing women come to the surface. Throughout this book, she digs into these ten feelings: heartbreak, disappointment, unforgiveness, shame, regret, fear, insecurity, insignificance, despair, and rage. I enjoyed the ways in which Walsh explored each of these words as she walked through each chapter. So many times, we take for granted the meanings of the words we use, but she pulled back and gave pause to dig a little deeper. She also shared meaningful stories as well as practical applications, which are intended for the individual but could certainly be useful for small group settings as well. This book is well-written, but I still struggled to engage with much of it. I am at a point where I prefer to avoid “Christianese” or language that is full of “terms only Christians understand”—this book seemed to have a lot of that. For whatever reason, I find it off-putting and am trying to find new ways of communicating that don’t feel so cliché. Despite this language, I did appreciate Walsh’s effort to dig past the pat, Sunday School answers that so many people are given. This book is not one that I would jump to recommend to all my friends and family, but it may speak very deeply to some who are in a different part of life than I am. My recommendation is to read the descriptions, check out the content that is included, and if it draws you in and you connect to the message—it may be a very meaningful book for you. Although it was not my favorite book, I’m glad I read it because there is always something to be gained or learned from the insights and experiences of others.

Sheila Walsh has been my favorite singer since I was a little girl, so reading this book was a real treat. In The Storm Inside: From heartbreak to strength from disappointment to hope from unforgiveness to freedom from rage to restoration from fear to joy from shame to love from regret to rest from insecurity to confidence from insignificance to courage from despair to faith In each chapter, Sheila shares what stories in the Bible are relevant, who's story can help us in today's world? I love this! I also love how much Sheila shares with us about her life. I could hear her reading it with her accent the whole time! Then at the end of each chapter, she calls it Standing Through Your Storm and she gives you some clear and helpful ways to go from one to the other, biblically. Sheila says, "Fair doesn't live here anymore but Jesus does." -- Read this book, you won't regret it ONE bit! I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion from the publisher. The book releases Feb 11th. I am offering ONE copy, but to win you MUST come to my blog and comment. Blessings!

    Earlier this year, I was invited to be a part of the launch team for a new book by Sheila Walsh entitled “The Storm Inside.” I first heard Sheila speak at a Women of Faith conference several years ago. Since then I have read several of her books, always appreciating their blend of spiritual truth, practical stories, and an honest kick in the pants when I need it :) Here is my official review of “The Storm Inside,” which comes out today! “The Storm Inside” is a thought-provoking look at what it me Earlier this year, I was invited to be a part of the launch team for a new book by Sheila Walsh entitled “The Storm Inside.” I first heard Sheila speak at a Women of Faith conference several years ago. Since then I have read several of her books, always appreciating their blend of spiritual truth, practical stories, and an honest kick in the pants when I need it :) Here is my official review of “The Storm Inside,” which comes out today! “The Storm Inside” is a thought-provoking look at what it means to follow Christ through the not so good times of life. it seems like faith is easy when the storms are calm; but, when the waters are raging, it can sometimes be hard to remember Who can calm any storm in life. We so often create our own storms and hold on to our ship as it sinks. This book reminds us that it’s not just about us and our ability to survive the storms intact, but that God wants us to survive the storms in joy, living fully in who He is and what He promises. Nowhere does it say that there won’t be storms, but we are promised that the storms will not beat us, as long as we hold on to God. Ms. Walsh writes like she speaks; with honesty, vulnerability and integrity. This book references the parts of her life that qualify her to speak into the storms of a reader’s life without asking for pity or making the reader feel like their personal storm isn’t scary enough. Through honest discussions on shame, guilt, forgiveness, pain and acceptance, “The Storm Inside” is the perfect, challenging read for someone who feels like the world is raging against them or even those they love. Full of practical wisdom and solidly built on a foundation of God’s word, “The Storm Inside” is a must-read for people who feel like giving up may be the only option. Walsh’s understanding of scripture and deep faith in God shine on every page.

    Great Bible study ... I always appreciate Sheila Walsh's authenticity, wisdom, and grace! "It's not that we won't hear the screeches of the enemy's lies in the night, but we will refuse to chart our course by them." from Miroslav Volf: "Though our bodies and souls may become ravaged, yet we continue to be God's temple - at times a temple in ruins, but sacred space nonetheless." "Even the bravest of souls need godly friends to help them find courage at fearsome times." Great Bible study ... I always appreciate Sheila Walsh's authenticity, wisdom, and grace!

This book is packed with insightful biblical teaching, intimate stories of her own, which make it a wonderful study book for youself or for a group. All of us have moments in our Christian walk that are filled with Chaos, guilt or fear. I know I have a whole lot of problem with fear as I worry even though I know I should not. Sheila's book really helped me to get past some of my worry and guilt and remember that through anything Christ is with me. No one is perfect and sometimes we feel the shame of our lack of faith or the things we feal. this book helps you get past feelings and focus on God and what he can do to help you feel more free and loved. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a great study book that you can really learn from, from someone who has been there and who feels the same way that you do. I am so happy I got to read it its very comprehensive and will help you find the strength to face the Chaos that life sometimes hits us with. This would be a great choice for your next book club or group study program. Thanks for reading my review

    I had never heard of Sheila Walsh until my Mamma started talking about a book she wanted to read called The Storm Inside. About the same time, I was given the opportunity to read and review The Storm Inside. From the very first chapter I knew that God had brought this book into my life, just when I needed it most.

In each chapter, Walsh discusses feelings that often overwhelm us– from fear to insignificance, and counters the lies we so easily believe, with what God’s Word says. Using deeply personal stories from her own life, as well as other women in her life, Walsh will make you laugh, cry, and think. The Storm Inside is a beautiful and necessary reminder that our identity is found in Christ, and it is not our past that defines us, but rather our Savior. Walsh shares the truth that we can lay every burden at the foot of the Cross, and rest in the love of our Lord. I found The Storm Inside to be a touching and encouraging book, and would highly recommend it, particularly to Christian women. I would give it an “A”.

    Dr. Walsh tackles here the same issues she covered in her book Fearlessly from around a decade prior, but still provides a very moving and powerful, inspiring, thesis nonetheless. I'll be frank: I think you either gravitate toward Sheila Walsh's brand of Christian thought or you simply don't, and this book won't be for everyone.

I'll be frank: I think you either gravitate toward Sheila Walsh's brand of Christian thought or you simply don't, and this book won't be for everyone. Her main readership is Christian women in their 40s or beyond, her own peers so to speak, though as a gay male who has seriously questions about Christian faith and Christian doctrine alike I still find Walsh very inspiring, not for the least due to the honest, strong, and forthright presentation of her own life in her writing. She truly has a way with words: even the title of this book is revealing as to its basal meanings, and she is able to stick to her prime concepts throughout the book and really offer a look into the Christian psyche. If, as Christians, we are saved via the blood of Christ, why do we often have so much turmoil in our lives? If we are sinners redeemed, why do we still both sin and suffer? These are eternal questions but Walsh addresses them with both Bible-based scholarship and real-life candor here, so it's a book worth reading if you're searching for an exploration of the contemporary Christian position of the individual in society.
