From Pastor to a Psych Ward

When I left home that Sunday night, I knew my wife and little boy would never see alive again.

This book is for anyone who has failed a suicide attempt and is left wondering "what's next". It's also for anyone suffering from anxiety or depression, bipolar, OCD, PPD, or PTSD. If you've ever secretly considered a suicide attempt, this book is for you. I'm not a doctor or a counselor. I'm just a real guy with a powerful story to tell. I'd be honored to share my experience with you.

If you have ever felt hopeless, if you have ever believed that all the bad things in your life were beyond redemption, if you have ever felt unworthy of being loved or accepted, if you have ever feared what would happen if people found out whatever it is that haunts you - I get it. I have been there, too.

You’re tired of living this way. You want to change your life, and you don’t know where to begin. I hope this 21-day self-care journal will help you answer that question. It’s time to take ownership of your life, and that begins with good self-care. It’s hard work, but you can do it. No more running, no more hiding, no more masks. No matter what your journey has looked like so far, recovery is possible. I am living proof.

I love jesus, but...

Robert Vore & Steve Austin have both spent time wrestling with mental illness in the context of the Christian faith. Over time, they found themselves saying things like this:

  • I love Jesus, but I need my medication.
  • I love Jesus, but I hate being alone.
  • I love Jesus, but my pastor doesn't understand my mental illness.
  • I love Jesus, but sometimes I want to die.

In this brand new book from the hosts of CXMH, Robert & Steve reflect on these statements and more in a raw and powerful way.

Equipped with reflection questions, resource suggestions, and more, I Love Jesus, But... sets out to address what it looks like to navigate (and maybe even embrace) the tension between faith & mental health.
