  • Thanks Brett. My husband and I listened to your “Walking Wounded” message and were so blessed! Thank you for being so open about this topic. So much of what you said rang true with what we had already experienced. Our family of 5 has developed issues with mental health (we think because of a combination of genetics, Lyme Disease, and Mold Exposure). God is slowly restoring us, our relationships, and our spiritual life. We had to leave our church because we were too weak to fight the “religious abuse” when they said our son just needed to be “saved” so that his mental illness would go away. I wish we would have had your resources and the strength to stay and help educate people. But, now that we are feeling better and have more clarity on the issue, we can be part of the solution. I have already passed on your info to a friend who had an infection induce a panic disorder and is now having Christian friends trying to “help” her. We need to remember to forgive people because they are trying to help but they just are not educated on the topic. Thanks again for helping with this dilemma in the body of Christ!!

  • Brett, Just listened to your talk at TOB (RKLS MVMT). Thank you for being open, honest and humble.

    You talk that mental Illness/ anxiety is a disability or that one day maybe you will be healed.

    From my perspective – you have no disability at all and your are healed. God has made your life perfect for him. Perfect to continue to talk openly about a subject that is “taboo” in society, weaving God into the conversation as ONE element of support and understanding – not THE only element to deal with the problem.

    I need glasses to read – is this a disability or a fact of my life? I can only draw stick figures and even they are not very good – a disability or a fact of my life? Since you love statistics so much, 75% of the time sing off key – is this a disability or a fact of my life?

    So to look at this asking if or when God will heal you – well He doesn’t really have to because maybe you were never “broken”. And that your “breakdown” so to speak a number of years ago, was God’s way of helping you start this journey figuring out the tools needed to deal with the life God has chosen for you. Yes there are scars, but these scars visible today and on an ongoing basis allow others to see and believe and understand your journey to help them.

    In John chapter 20 – Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”

    Brett, so one perspective is that you are already healed. And your scars allow others to “stop doubting and believe”.

    Thank you again. You allow dialogue, conversation and introspective – another starting point to healing.

    Ps. And don’t worry. I haven’t slept more than 4 hours in a row for over 15 years. Sad but true.. 😉

  • Blessed to have met you at Kingdom Bound. I have been praying everyday that your sleep cycles have improved. I know you are helping so many and believing God will heal you. Your talk truly resonated with me. Then later in the week spoke to a Youth Pastor who has been going through many similar challenges that you discussed. I plan on sharing the your DVD with her.
