about me

In the year 2000 I was diagnosed with Bi-polar Disorder. As a result, I have spent years navigating and managing mental illness. I could not have done it without my Lord. "With All My Mind" is the overflow of my relationship with Him in the midst of mental illness.
The mentally ill with in the church is very much in need of ministering to. I hope this book will minister to those who struggle, and will provide insight for family and loved ones who don't.

You can reach me at my email address, lynda.ventura@yahoo.com Thank you and God bless you!

With All My Mind

Lyn Ventura

A friend's words,"Let your scars tell God's story," gave birth to this devotional designed to minister to the mentally ill and those who love them.

The challenges we face being mentally ill are many. The condition is not widely understood in society, let alone in the church. There are ministries for the divorced, ministries for the addicted, men and women's ministries, but there aren't ministries (in most churches) for those with an illness of the mind.This book is that ministry. It is full of devotions designed to encourage faith as well as mental wellness. It shines the light of Christ into the dark world of mental illness.

Hi Todd, I have to say your technique for prayer is very unique. I couldn't quite get in to the tapping part, but I loved the focus aspect of your book. I especially liked the way you formulated questions for intercessory/surrogate prayer as it aways helps to have a deeper understanding of what o... view book

Hi Melissa, I really enjoyed your book. I got a little chuckle over the whole "sun barreling down to the earth" thing as I had stuggled with those kinds of fears myself. I finally decided to leave those matters in God's hands and just trust Him. I get what you're saying about fear though. I thin... view book
