Help, I’m Drowning by Sally Clarkson


This book could not have come at a more perfect time for me. This book was relatable and just what I needed to refocus off of the storms around us in today’s crazy world, back on to the Man on the boat who calms the storms. Clarkson shares relatable stories and words of wisdom for those of us finding ourselves slightly adrift wondering how to cope in a world seemingly full of turmoil.

I was encouraged to know that I am not alone, that we are in this together and that there is a way to navigate life’s storms with grace and hope. Most of all, I appreciated her authenticity and honesty. This one will be a re-read for times when I need to be reminded of these things.

Life is filled with unexpected storms that take you by surprise.

In these storms of life, it’s easy to feel helpless, exhausted, afraid . . . and alone. We can feel like victims to circumstances out of our control.

Beloved author Sally Clarkson understands deeply. Through almost seven decades of life, she has found herself tossed about in overwhelming life storms through many different seasons.

In Help, I’m Drowning, Sally identifies the challenges that took her by surprise and then leads you to the wisdom she gathered from her experiences. Finding grace to walk through the darkness and hope to make it through will give you the comfort and encouragement you need in knowing you are not alone. Though there are no easy, formulaic answers that apply to every situation, Sally leads us to the One who is with us and will see us through.

Sally found the anchors that held her steady in the midst of every storm, and she wants to help you find your anchors too. She invites you into her own personal story of anchoring well, and then–with honesty, grit, and her trademark wisdom–she will help you heal and move forward with courage and strength.
