I have stuggled with depression for several years . . . was diagnosed with clinical depression over 11 years ago. Several years ago I found myself on the threshold of depression again.
Found this book, and it was a fresh, honest, open confession and practical guide for recovery of a minster dealing with depression and/or burnout. I have referred this book to all my minister friends.

Leading on Empty: Refilling your tank and renewing your passion
This book is a must read for anyone in leadership, especially those in ministry.
Burnout happens when you keep pushing yourself and don’t know when to slow down. Ultimately when it you hit it, it’s too late! Wayne Cordeiro shares about his story of burnout and his recovery in a way that should change the way we view not only our lives but our ministries. He gives very practical tools and tips on how to avoid leading on empty and keep your spiritual tank from being emptied so easily. As a leader you give and give, but you can’t give what you don’t have… so how do you stay topped up?
As I read this book I had time to do some self-evaluating of areas in my own life. I’ve hit burnout in the past and have put some guardrails around myself to make sure it doesn’t happen again, but it’s always a challenge. As life changes, work, family… we always need to be evaluating and guarding our hearts and lives. I’m thankful that Cordeiro was bold enough to share his story and his journey to healing. As leaders it’s very difficult to admit failure or even admit we need help. We’re the ones who help everyone else.
“Lead out of rest and allow your soul to catch up to you. Only then will you be able to put your heart into everything God asks of you. Without rest, you are leading on empty.”
So what has God called you to? At the end of the day, that’s what matters!
Enjoy the read and be prepared for some life change in the process!!!
