As a native of Highland, New York, Marisa McClinton is well on her way to becoming one of the country’s top authors. This dynamic mother of two has defied all odds by pursuing her dream of becoming a published author and a published columnist. Ms. McClinton has had her pen to paper since the age of twelve, and with her strong faith in Christ, she has authored two books illustrating her journey through a lifetime of depression and salvation. This book is a continuation of her first literary work, The Suicidal Christian: the battle is the mind, and goes into greater detail of the struggle she endured and the will of the spirit to persevere with Christ to the end. While this series is dedicated to all struggling believers to help raise awareness of the battles that many are presented with today; God has also allowed her to discover a place within herself that brings her great joy and fulfillment in encouraging others through her writings.
The Battled Christian is a gripping journey through a young woman's saved and sanctified life while wrestling the demons of depression and suicide. This book is a personal account of the battle she endured for the entire duration of her life; a continuation from her first book "The Suicidal Christian", Marisa tackles the stigma placed on mental illness by the church and society.
