Steve Austin was a pastor when he nearly died by suicide. A second chance, grueling recovery, and years of honest conversation allowed Steve to find healing and purpose. It’s evident in his speaking, podcasting, and coaching: he helps overwhelmed people get their lives back.

Steve is also author of the Amazon bestseller, From Pastor to a Psych Ward. He lives in Birmingham, Alabama, with his wife, Lindsey, and their two children. Find him online at iamsteveaustin.com.

What is the Sermon on the Mount?

In short: it’s a massive collection of the teachings of Jesus.

But who cares? And what does it mean for us today?

This Summer, I asked 11 friends that very question, and I got 11 different answers (the Bible is cool like that). I recorded their responses, and I think the results are pretty powerful.

“For me, recovery and self-care are inextricably connected. My recovery from abuse, addiction, and a suicide attempt required dumptruck loads of self-care.”
Steve Austin, Self-Care for the Wounded Soul: 21 Days of Messy Grace

“I have gained wisdom from leaning into my pain, in not allowing the hounds of hell to snap at my heels anymore. Now I turn around, call them by name, and let them know I am prepared to fight.”
Steve Austin, Self-Care for the Wounded Soul: 21 Days of Messy Grace

“If you have ever felt hopeless, if you have ever believed that all the bad things in your life were beyond redemption, if you have ever felt unworthy of being loved or accepted, if you have ever feared what would happen if people found out whatever it is that haunts you - I get it. I have been there, too.”
