Many Christians question whether anxiety is a sin and wonder why it often persists despite prayer and faith. Today’s guest helps us understand anxiety as a natural, biological emotion that can help free us from shame and stigmas and help us move forward and receive help. Dr. Amanda Porter is an author, psychiatric nurse practitioner, and anxiety sufferer who has lived at the intersection of mental health and faith for many years. As one of the 40 million adults in the U.S. who struggle with anxiety, Dr. Porter shares a message of hope that feelings of anxiety can be managed through our thoughts, behaviors, and actions and with professional help when needed. If you have grown weary in your search for relief, may this conversation help you push forward, trust God, and find greater healing and freedom.
