Checking In

Disclosure: Thank you TLC Book Tours and Thomas Nelson for the gifted copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Tenitra Michelle Williams bravely shares stories from her personal life and the struggles she has faced in the new book Checking In: How Getting Real about Depression Saved My Life – and Can Save Yours. This was a quick read for me with lots of laughs and heartfelt stories, Michelle really shares from her heart. I love the suggestion about "checking in" each week — with ourselves, with God, and with our circle. Sometimes we need to be the one to reach out to someone. Make that call, whether to a friend to offer help, or to ask for help!

This book is a wonderful tool for everyone, not just the ones struggling.

More About Checking In: How Getting Real about Depression Saved My Life – and Can Save Yours

"Acclaimed musical artist Michelle Williams shares the intimate, never-before-told story of how, even in the midst of enormous fame and success, she battled depression, leading her to find her true calling as an advocate for mental health–especially her own.

As a member of Destiny’s Child, one of the top female R&B groups of all time, Michelle Williams felt blessed. After the group disbanded, she continued to create best selling albums, appear on television shows, and star in theater productions. Though she had always struggled with low moods, in 2018 her depression deepened, and when she found herself planning her own funeral, she checked herself into a treatment facility. There she found the help she needed to live out the incredible story God was writing for her life.

In her first book, Michelle courageously shares the hidden secrets that nearly ended her life; the importance of her faith, family, and friends; and the lessons she learned about prioritizing her mental health. She is on a quest to increase mental health awareness and urges others to understand the importance of “checking in” with themselves, God, and others. Her candid, often humorous, and incredibly brave book will inspire readers who desire hope for their own difficult times."
