Misti Stevenson - From OCD To Happiness
My Journey from Crippling OCD to Happiness Misti Stevenson tells the gripping story of her descent into the isolating dysfunction of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. From age eleven she felt more and more disconnected while on the outside she appeared to be totally fine. The distance between these two realities increased to the size of an emotional Grand Canyon. Distress spiraled into despair. Her struggle was invisible to most, but was consuming her. When she found the path to healing, her darkness gave way to light. She tells her story with the hope that you may find the path of full healing also. If OCD or any seemingly insurmountable challenge is affecting you or someone you love, this is a story of healing you absolutely must hear. It will give you hope.
Misti Stevenson spent 23 years living an abundant and productive life yet simultaneously living in an invisible prison - a prison of OCD. It nearly completely robbed her of joy and peace. Yet no one knew how much she was hurting. Misti had a quick natural laugh that concealed her crippling internal battle. But she finally found a path to recovery and was healed. She considers it a miracle. A miracle she now loves sharing with others. A miracle you too can access. Misti now enjoys her busy and joy-filled life in Kaysville with her husband, Jed, and five busy children. When not helping her kids with homework, tackling a mountain of laundry, or serving at church, she loves to do yoga, and especially loves hiking in the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with her family. Facing her OCD was difficult. Telling her family was almost impossible. Writing about it, the supreme act of faith. She has felt supported by the Savior each step of the way. Misti knows you or someone you love may be among those who are silently suffering in a seemingly insurmountable set of circumstances and loves spreading the Savior’s message of hope and deliverance through the telling of her story. Misti is the author of He Delivered Even Me, He Will Deliver Even You (A spiritual journey of healing from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), Misti Stevenson, 2013
