Strong Tower Mental Health with Heidi Mortenson

Jan 10, 2022

Have you ever thought to yourself – no one cares, my story doesn’t matter? Or your spouse drives you crazy with the same situation over and over? God desires for us to receive freedom in these moments. We need to get out of the hole of pain and frustration and be vulnerable.

Jesus desires for us to open up, be vulnerable and share our stories. Transformation comes when we open up and are vulnerable. We have to MOVE. We have to speak.

In the midst of our messy middle and our life situations, God shows up.

If you keep focusing on what others are not doing that you don’t like, nothing will change.

Surrender all your worries to God.

God wants us captivated by the cross in every single moment.

Your story matter.


Matthew 11:28-29 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

“Shame hates it when we reach out and tell our story. It hates having words wrapped around it – it can’t survive being shared. Shame loves secrecy. When we bury our story, the shame metastasizes.” ~Brené Brown

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

Hebrews 13:5 “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

2 Timothy 1:9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.

Luke 8:17 For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.
