Please stay. The world is so much better with you in it.

Every forty seconds, someone takes his or her life. Anxiety, depression, and suicide are at all-time highs--and they're stealing our sons, daughters, friends, and spouses.

With tender passion and bold hope, Jacob Coyne, founder of Stay Here, infuses life into the dark corners of mental health. Giving hurting souls a reason to live, he shows not only how Jesus brings life to the full, but also how anyone--regardless of their past or pain--can find healing, including how to

· attack our anxiety and calm our storms;
· defeat depression and live with a sound mind;
· overcome intrusive suicidal thoughts and enjoy life; and
· transform pain, trauma, suicidal thoughts, and addictions into purpose.

It's okay to not be okay--but you don't have to stay that way. It's time to shine the hope of Christ into the darkness and witness His love transform broken souls into living, breathing signs to live.

"I am grateful for Jacob's friendship, commitment to the gospel, and the mission of Stay Here.
