In this important book, a megachurch pastor acknowledges the mental health crisis happening in our churches today and gives readers practical tools to fight back against depression, anxiety, and insecurity—and help them find victory.

Depression, anxiety, and emotional trauma are on the rise, even more so after the painful few years we’ve all been through. While the church has had an unfortunate track record of glossing over mental health issues, Paul Daugherty, pastor of the megachurch Victory, believes it’s time for the church to break its silence. You can’t just pray trauma away. Depression and anxiety can affect even the most devoted believer. 

In this book, Paul Daugherty shares his own story of walking through anxiety and depression, helping readers understand how frightening and debilitating mental health struggles can be, and talks vulnerably about the highs and lows of his healing journey. He also walks readers through some of the biggest mental and emotional health issues he has seen people in his life and his congregation facing, including depression, anxiety, insecurity, mood swings, and the scars of trauma. Daugherty dives into scripture and lays a framework for understanding the spiritual truths behind each mental battle, and offers practical tips and strategies to help readers discover the door out of depression and into mental and emotional victory. 

This book is a fresh and much-needed guide for finding hope and healing from mental and emotional health struggles.

This book is a helpful resource for anyone seeking mental and emotional well-being.

  • The ability to keep your head in the game is what separates the great from the mediocre. In his book, Mind Games, my friend Paul Daugherty provides proven strategies for you to win the war in your mind so you can stay the course and finish well.

  • It’s been said that the battleground in our lives is in the mind. We must be victorious in the war over our minds if we want to step into the fullness that God has for us. The simple truth is, how we think determines how we live. The abundant life that Jesus offers us is obtained by the renewing of our mind. I am grateful that my friend Paul Daugherty has so eloquently and profoundly written a book that is a roadmap for how to obtain victory and freedom in our thinking. In Mind Games, he breaks open his life in a vulnerable and powerful way that will set others free. This is the book for every believer longing for more and for every believer ready for victory.
    Banning Liebscher, Founder and Pastor of Jesus Culture
