Equipped For Battle
Dr Darla by Jo Ellen Layne is a contemporary Christian novel that deals with mental health and the aftermath. Jo Ellen Layne has taken her years of experience as a social worker and woven it into a story.
Mental illness can affect anyone at any time from all walks of life. It is important to listen to the patient and then prescribe the correct treatment. It is important to recognize the trigger for mental illness.
Jo Ellen Layne has many godly lessons for us to learn as she incorporates her faith into her novel.
Dr Darla is not a ‘preachy’ novel but has sound advice for us all. There are hard to read scenes but then life is not always easy.
My favorite line has to be Dr Darla “donned her spiritual armor and waged a war against Satan’s activity.” We are all in a spiritual battle and we must not under estimate Satan’s cunning. However we must not over estimate his power as we have an omnipotent God who has defeated the last enemy, death and who fights for us all the time. We need to stand on His Word and call on His Name.
A compelling read full of godly truths.
