Our brains do their best to help us out, but every so often they can be real assholes - having melt downs, getting addicted to things, or shutting down completely at the worst possible moments.

It's Not Supposed to Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered by Lysa TerKeurst
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God's goodness. Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply.

Lysa invites us into her own journey of faith and, with grit, vulnerability, and honest humor.
Depression, Anxiety, and Other Things We Don't Want to Talk About by Ryan Casey Waller
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
A pastor and licensed psychotherapist himself suffering from depression and anxiety takes on the relationship of mental health and faith while addressing the role of self-care, compassion, and restoration. Everyone knows someone who suffers from anxiety, depression, or another form of mental illness, but a stigma around mental health remains--especially in the church. Ryan Casey Waller--pastor, therapist, and cosufferer--has experienced firsthand the jarring dissonance of wrestling with mental health while trying to maintain a vibrant Christian faith. It can be a discouraging, lonely battle. But it doesn't have to be. In this book, Waller emphasizes that mental health issues are not a symptom of a spiritual failing or insufficient faith; rather, suffering is the very thing our Savior seeks to heal as he leads us toward restoration. Combining practical theology, clinical insights, and deep compassion, Waller invites readers to see why we need conversations in the church about mental health and how to have them; discover why seeking knowledge about one's self is critical to growing deeper in relationship with God; understand the basics of brain health, the intersection of biology and spirituality, and why emotional intelligence deserves more attention; learn practical steps such as how to find a therapist, distinguish between a psychiatrist and a psychologist, and afford treatment; and become equipped to support loved ones with mental illness while promoting healthy self-care.
How Hard It Really Is: A Short, Honest Book About Depression by J S Park
Publisher: TWE Media
Depression is a rumor, until it is reality, and then it's as if nothing else was ever real. Still, no one will believe you. I find it hard to believe it myself. This book is for those who believe, and for those who want to. Depression is encased in misconceptions. The pain of going through a mental illness is already hard enough; to add myths only makes it that much more unbearable. By investigating the mystery of depression, it's possible to remove some of the fog around the fog. It's in sharing what we go through that we are empowered to make it through together. This book is a conversation so we can talk differently about depression, with the thoughtfulness it deserves. It's for both the person wrestling with depression and for those who want to help. How Hard It Really Is covers: - The science behind depression - The helpful (and unhelpful) dialogue around mental illness - The debate between seeing it as a choice and disease - Stories of survivors - A secret culture of suicide worship - An interview with a depressed doctor - The problem with finding a "cure" - A myriad of voices from nearly two-hundred surveys conducted over a year

Listening to My Body: A guide to helping kids understand the connection between their sensations (what the heck are those?) and feelings so that they can get better at figuring out what they need. by Gabi Garcia
Publisher: Skinned Knee Publishing
Listening to My Body is an engaging and interactive picture book that introduces children to the practice of paying attention to their bodies. Through a combination of story and simple experiential activities, it guides them through the process of noticing and naming their feelings and the physical sensations that accompany them, while helping them build on their capacity to engage mindfully, self-regulate, and develop a better sense of well-being. From "buzzing" and "tingly" to "wiggly" and "squirmy," Listening to My Body gives children a vocabulary to name their sensations and cultivates the message that whatever sensation or feeling they experience is okay. Putting these concepts into practice will help children get better at figuring out what they need to show care and kindness for themselves, especially when they experience difficult emotions. Listening to My Body is a wonderful resource for parents, counselors and teachers! "Great book for kiddos! Every parent should have this book for their child!" - Amazon review "I'm an adult and this book helped me! This is a great book to help kids listen to their bodies and learn how to discriminate between sensations and feelings. Highly recommended." - Amazon review "My four-year-old and me have been enjoying this book quite a bit. It is really helpful in having him learn about sensations and feelings!! I am a psychotherapist and I am really glad there are books like this out there!" -Amazon review "I work as a counselor in public schools and am a mom to a 4-year-old girl. I have read this book with children from 4-11 years old and every child has been engaged and interested in the story. The interventions throughout the book really get the kids involved in conversation about the concepts of feelings and sensations, both when they are calm and after getting a little dysregulated (from jumping, wiggling and rubbing hands together). A fantastic way to start conversations about these very important concepts!" - Amazon review
