 I have been waiting for a practical resource to help young people navigate panic, stress and anxiety, and here it is.. Most young people will see themselves in the pages of this book as it addresses lies our anxiety tells us that can cause us to spiral, leading to unhealthy responses. Will and Dr Chinwé provide easy-to-apply tools to confront the lies, understand what’s true, take action and invite God into the whole process. This book is a game changer.

 The genius of Will and Chinwé is that they put a “label” on the indescribable emotional trap of the “anxiety spiral” that so easily sucks in teenagers (and adults for that matter). Reading the “label” helps people to know what is contained within and then offers steps to help them find resolve, help, or peace! Brilliant words!

 “Beyond the Spiral” is a must read for anyone who loves and cares for a young person. In this day and age, teens and emerging adults are suffering from anxiety like never before and the consequences are heartbreaking. Dr. Williams and Will have again combined faith and clinical principles to provide caregivers with important steps toward helping young people manage the tough moments in life.

I have been counseling kids and families for the past 30 years. And I have never seen anything take a toll on teenagers and young adults the way anxiety has in the past few years. It lies to them, robs them of their confidence and ultimately steals their hope . . . hope in who they are and hope in the future God has prepared for them. It’s time for it to stop. 

We need voices who are speaking thoughtful, practical, hope-filled truth into the darkness of this anxiety-ridden world. Dr. Chinwe Williams and Will Hutcherson are two such voices. Chinwe is not only a dear friend, but one of the people I trust most in the mental health profession. In Beyond the Spiral, Chinwe and Will offer evidence-based strategies kids and young adults who are facing anxiety can start to use today. But they don’t stop there. They speak truth into the lies that anxiety tells us. And, even more importantly, they help us discover the healing and hope that only Christ can bring. I’m grateful for this book and the difference I know it will make in countless lives.

I believe reading this book will help equip you and your teenagers with the practical tools needed to overcome anxiety. If you have felt insecure in knowing how to help your children then this is a must read!
