31 Days of Battling Anxiety with Biblical Truth | IG |

*updated October 2017


She and I are friends. You don’t face an incurable genetic disorder and the promise of major medical events without her knocking on your door. But I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve to keep her at bay.

Some of them come from my work as a yoga teacher. But most of them come from the study of God’s Word, and embracing the knowledge found there that you have value and your life has purpose. I’m not a doctor. I’m not a therapist. I’m just a girl with a medical thing trying to keep the heart palpitations to a minimum and I’d love for you to join me.

Together, we’ll marry tangible tools with Biblical truths to feel better and live our lives well.

New here? Nice to meet you!

I’m Heather. If you have somehow found me through your search of the great wide web, welcome! Shoutout to any listeners coming from Matt Heffner’s Our Daily Rest podcast!

Here are a few things you might want to know before we begin:

  1. If you’re curious about why anxiety and I are friends, you can read more about my story here, including what made me cry in Paris, idioms I can’t ever say correctly, and how many books I currently have checked out from the library.
  2. If talking about anxiety gives you…anxiety, I recommend you start with a belly-laugh. You can read my most embarrassing story here, as long as you aren’t currently eating.
  3. As a thank you for stopping by, I’d love to send you my 14-day devotional on courageous living. It’s free and you can get it by subscribing to be an email peep below. You’ll also receive exclusive content and updates from me delivered straight to your inbox twice a month.
  4. You can also connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. But no where else. Because more than four social media outlets would give me anxiety.



Battling anxiety takes courage. But you don’t have to do it alone. The creator of the universe wants you to live courageously, in freedom, and without worry. The tools to do that are free and available to anyone.

My disclaimer, obviously:

If you tell your doctor you have trouble with anxiety, she’s likely to advise you with one or more of the following options:

  • find a good talk therapist
  • take anti-anxiety medication
  • try an alternative technique like yoga, meditation, or acupuncture
  • engage in coping strategies that work for you

I am not a doctor. I am not a therapist. I am ALL FOR any and all of the above strategies to manage anxiety and I’ll be the first to tell you I’ve done them all. If you are battling anxiety, your first step absolutely has to be to tell your doctor. So if you haven’t done that, do it before you read one more thing on this blog.


Most doctors aren’t going to point you to prayer and scripture to help you cope. And that’s exactly what we are going to do here, because I’m living proof that it works.

This series is meant to fall under the category of “a coping strategy that works for you.” And if it does….tell your doctor:)
