Courtney offers a hand to hold through her relatable and vulnerable tale of her own anxiety related to motherhood. For my patients who have struggled with worry, fear, or anxiety, they most want to know that they aren't crazy and they aren't alone.

"Courtney Devich's new book Mama's Got Anxiety came to me at a perfect time. After sharing about my own struggles with fear in Mothering by the Book, I was well aware of how fear and anxiety steal joy from our families and that I had steps to overcome. But new fears had come up for me in the midst of a new season. Courtney's book had helpful reminders for recapturing peace as well as scriptural reminders that God has us and He will never forsake us. Courtney reminds us of His trustworthiness and gives the fearful mama hopeful insights for creating calm."
Jennifer Pepito, author of Mothering by the Book
"This book is so needed for mamas in our world right now! Courtney reminds us of an important truth: anxiety's voice and God's voice are not the same. She guides readers into God's presence using relatable stories. She encourages us to drop shame and pick up His mercy and grace as practical strategies are implemented into a new way of thinking and living. As a survivor and overcomer of anxiety, I am so grateful we have this tool!"

Becky Keife, author of The Simple Difference and No Better Mom for the Job
"As a fellow mama who has struggled with anxiety (and has experienced how it can amplify in motherhood), I found myself nodding along with Courtney's book and thinking, 'This is exactly how I've felt.' For any mom struggling with anxiety and feeling like your faith must not be strong enough, this book will be a calming reassurance that God is right there with you in anxiety and He is not done with you."
