Loved Back to Life: How I Found the Courage to Live Free
About the Book:
Join Sheila Walsh on her journey from despair to joy
Beautiful and talented, Sheila Walsh was at the pinnacle of her career, appearing daily on television as cohost of The 700 Club. One day she found herself walking away from it all and checking in to a psychiatric hospital, where she stayed for a month.
From the outside everything seemed fine, but on the inside Sheila was in trouble. In her journal she wrote, “Lord, please hold me. I’m falling into a dark well. I feel as if I am disappearing a little more every day. I am so angry inside that I am afraid of myself. I feel so alone.” How did this happen? What brought her to her knees?
Loved Back to Life takes readers on Sheila’s journey of the soul from hopelessness to joy as she finds that although the road was scary, at every turn God beckoned her to follow and trust Him. And He did not let her down.

I absolutely love Sheila Walsh and I have had the opportunity to hear her speak 3 times at Women Of Faith. Her story has always touched me in a way and renewed my faith. I always wondered what it was that made me so captivated by this remarkable woman of God and when her newest book came out, I had found out why. Clinical Depression….
Sheila had it all, a beautiful voice, and co-host off the 700 Club until one day she new something was wrong. After seeing a doctor and realizing the help she needed was to be admitted into a psychiatric hospital, Sheila knew that’s what she needed to do to save her life. While there, Sheila was diagnosed with Clinical depression and put on meds but the best part, she became closer to God and was able to find out where some of her issues stemmed from.
Mental illness is not fake, it is real and Sheila is getting her story out here for all to see exactly what mental illness is and that there is help. I know that from personal experience, being diagnosed with depression 17 years ago and realizing what I needed to do to cope with it and the help that I received from family and friends but most importantly God is the reason why I am here today. If you or someone you love is suffering from Depression or any other mental illness, I will hope that you will buy this book and read it and buy a copy for that special person in your life. You will definitely understand them better.
Thank you Sheila for writing your story for all of us!!!
