Episodes Notes

Anxiety is the most common mental illness diagnosis, and those who suffer from it often feel overwhelmed, out of control, ashamed, lonely, and spiritually defeated.

Many Christians question whether anxiety is a sin and wonder why, despite prayer and faith, it so often persists.

The truth is that anxiety is an emotion that can serve as a life-saving tool, offering instinctual responses to danger. 

Dr. Amanda Porter, a psychiatric nurse practitioner with triple-board
certifications in internal medicine, psychiatry/mental health, and addiction
openly shares that she, too, struggles with anxiety.

Today on Connections, Dr. Porter shares some coping strategies,
spiritual guidance, and refreshing encouragement to help those struggling discover personal freedom
