    Rating 3.5 stars Your reaction has little to do with what's in front of you and everything to do with what's inside you. We are messy people. Behind all that glitters and all that is gold is usually heart that is a mess. Staying in our mess only brings isolation, depression, fe...

    I heard Sheila Walsh speak at a women's conference a few years ago. I've always liked her -- she comes across, both in her speaking and in her writing, as genuine and insightful. When Handlebar offered me a review copy of her latest book, In the Middle of the Mess, I was happy to read ...

    It isn't a subject we talk about much. Sharing painful experiences is never easy for anyone. Yet many of us know someone who has attempted or committed suicide. Or maybe we are the ones who have attempted suicide or thought about it a time or two. Sheila Walsh shares her personal story...

    A few years ago Bissell had a slogan, ?Life?s messy, clean it up?. I don?t know if it helped them sell vacuum cleaners or not, but it brought a truth to the forefront of our minds. Life is messy and needs to be cleaned up. Life is messy and it oozes it?s mess all over. Lif...

    Women will find strength and hope in this book by Sheila Walsh. I found it easy to read yet deep- I was brought to tears a few times. Although I have not experienced the emotional troubles the author has, and never had depression, I was able to learn much from this book. Thus, I recomm...

    I have to say that this is my favorite book by Sheila! I have read a few others but this one I couldn't put down, which is saying a lot for a non-fiction book! She gets right in the grit of things and I LOVED so many things in this book. One of the main topics in the book is suicidal t...

    Life doesn't always go the way we plan it. Right? Who has the perfect life? It does get messy and it's complicated. Having read several of Shelia's books, I wasn't sure how I would feel about this book, but I really enjoyed it! Walsh didn't mess around, but got to the heart of the issu...

    Honestly, it?s hard to give 3 stars to a book that is someone vulnerably sharing their heart-wrenching story of darkness and redemption; it almost seems like I?m belittling her journey and how God has worked through her mess to remind her that she is fully loved and fully accepted....

    I have struggled with clinical depression for the majority of my life. It is something I do not like to talk about. It's a scarlet letter that I try to hide from the world and I have built up a wall to keep many people from penetrating it. Some can empathize but unless you suffer from ...

    I must admit, when I picked up this book to read it for the first time, I had to put it down. It was too much for me. I had just gotten married and the stress of wedding planning and having the large scale event in another country was still quite fresh in my mind. I felt as though "Whe...
