Description

“I need help.”

Those three words saved Grammy Award–winning singer Michelle Williams’s life. After decades of sweeping her anxiety and depression under the rug—even during her years in the spotlight with Destiny’s Child—Michelle found herself planning her own funeral. Realizing that she needed immediate help and could no longer battle her anxiety and depression alone, she checked herself into a treatment facility. When she came home, she was energized and determined to check in on a regular basis with herself, God, and others.

Practical, engaging, and full of wisdom, Checking In helps us understand that

  • building walls around our vulnerability can hinder our healing; 
  • we need to reject the lies of anxiety and depression and replace them with the truth of God’s Word;
  • joy can be found when we release toxic thought patterns;
  • childhood wounds need to be healed;
  • freedom can be found when we forgive ourselves and others; and
  • a beautiful life comes from living honestly.

 An uplifting, behind-the-scenes look at one woman's path to healing, Checking In reminds you that you are not alone, and that God is not yet finished writing your story.

    Michelle is honest, funny, vulnerable, and a beacon of hope. Absolutely loved it. Can’t wait to see where her journey takes her and what she learns/how she grows next.
    Oh, and the vocal performance is perfect. Definitely one to listen to.

    The transparency, vulnerability and goofiness make this a really relatable book. I have to say, it is filled with so many gateways to personal reflection and self awareness. When she narrates her story, it's easy to see yourself in it for the most part. It is definitely a great read that reminds us that healing is possible, no matter how tragic the life event(s). Simply amazing!
