Every husband and wife should read How to Act Right When Your Spouse Acts Wrong. Leslie”s teaching is practical, as well as profound. For those who are “gutting it out” in their marriages, she offers help and hope, and even the best marriages could be improved by reading her book. I highly recommend this book. Even if you”re not even married, you”ll find it helps you grow in personal relationships.

Leslie, I can”t thank you enough for writing the book about emotionally destructive relationships. It has helped me put into words what my husband and I have been going through the last 3+ years. It gave validation for my feelings, helped me to understand my responses, gave me support in my actions…as we are separated for the second time. I want so much to follow God and I loved that your book is biblically based. My husband has read the book and so is our counselor. Both have really liked it and my counselor is using it to help others. I wish you could feel my heart as my eyes well up with tears and be blessed knowing God is using you to help others. God is so good! I wish I could give you a big hug.
I found Leslie’s book, Lord I Just Want to be Happy, to be brilliant and packed with useful advice. When I was reading this book, I felt God”s presence, peace and love. The author also made me feel like she really cared about me. The numerous references to the Bible and the topics related to the main points of Christianity really make this an essential book for Christian believers.The piece of advice I love the most in this book is that even in the midst of difficulties and frustration life can be meaningful, when you stay in contact with God.I would recommend this book to all believers!

The only unhappy part of reading Leslie’s book on happiness was closing the cover on the final page. Flowing with the ease of a conversation with a wise, trusted friend, each chapter
is filled with poignant illustrations, practical help and penetrating principles from scripture that encourage and guide the reader into a richer relationship with Jesus. Having read some of Leslie”s other books, I expected to learn important truths about myself, my choices and God. What I never expected was learning how to make lemonade while controlling an elephant or the happy changes that result from putting that knowledge into practice. Read this book – you”ll be happy you did!

This is the very best book I have ever read on the subject of depression and I have read several on the subject. The book is excellent. Leslie Vernick hits a home run on this book. As you read the book, you feel as if you are in her office being counseled. If you suffer from depression or if someone you love suffers from depression, this book is for you. I also enjoyed her book “Lord, I just want to be happy.” It also addresses depression…..Defeating Depression is her best work yet!
Finally a biblically sound book about depression! Leslie Vernick is a gifted counselor, author and speaker. With sensitivity and godly wisdom, her book, Defeating Depession,
educates readers and provides extra doses of hope, healing and much-needed encouragement. I highly recommend this book for individuals who suffer depression as well as those who love
I devoured How to Live Right When Your Life Goes Wrong in 2 nights.
My spirit craved for the truth that was so simply put in this book. The reading is easy but the meaning is deep. I could not put this book down until I was finished. I am going through a second time so I can really make the TRUTH principle a part of my life. Leslie shares personal examples from her own life along with those of others to really show how our faulty thinking, negative behaviors, and idols of our heart really do push God to the side and cause us more suffering. This is a must read for those who yearn to feel the presence of God and grow closer to him.
How to Find Selfless Joy in a Me-First World will challenge you to deeper in your walk with God. Leslie has done a masterful job of weaving biblical principles on humility with poignant, real-life illustrations that demonstrate how to be an authentic Christ-follower. The discussion questions for each chapter make this an ideal choice for small-group studies and will produce transformational results.Carol Kent, president of Speak Up Speaker Services, international speaker, and author of A New Kind of Normal and When I Lay My Isaac Down.”
