In an effort to support the Five Pillars Of Military Wellness (Emotional, Physical, Spiritual, Social, and Family), we are creating this new e-mail digest focused on providing tools that our Warriors and their families, and even those in civilian life, can use to improve their health, mental state, and overall wellness. We want to provide exceptional value to those who are subscribed to receive information from Mighty Oaks, and over the coming months and years, we hope that these articles become a valuable resource to your life and the life of your families. Feel free to share this digest with anyone who you think might benefit from it. Thank you for your continued support and God bless.
Browsing in your book store or online for a book
to help you get through the battle you are enduring currently is overwhelming. It is like this often for many people who are wanting to improve their life. This is why we have compiled a shortlist of books that Men’s Health recommends. When the person finds the right book at the right time, it is something to behold.
The Body Keeps Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
“Trauma comes in all forms, from near-death experiences to unexpected loss. In this book, author Dr. Bessel van der Kolk examines recent scientific findings and uses human stories to demonstrate how trauma impacts both the mind and the body.”
This Is Depression: A Comprehensive, Compassionate Guide for Anyone Who Wants to Understand Depression
“In this book, psychiatrist Dr. Diane McIntosh examines common causes of depression, the diagnosis and treatment process, and several real-life examples of depression to help readers understand what they or a loved one may be facing.”
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Made Simple: 10 Strategies For Managing Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Panic, And Worry
“In this book, Seth J. Gillihan, Ph.D. examines the concept of mindfulness by providing a guide of 10 strategies for improving mental health. These tools include things like identifying negative thoughts and symptoms of anxiety of depression through manageable steps to effectively deal with them.”
These three books have been selected to benefit our Nation’s Warriors and their battles with PTS. Give one of these a try, after all, what better time to start than now?
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” – Charles W. Elliot

The Mighty Oaks Foundation is committed to serving the brokenhearted by providing intensive peer-based discipleship through a series of programs, outpost meetings, and speaking events. Our Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs hosts such Men, Women, and Marriage Advance Programs at multiple locations nationwide. The Warriors who attend are fully sponsored for training, meals, and lodging needs to ensure that upon arrival to the ranch, each Warrior is focused solely on his or her recovery and identifying purpose moving forward.
We understand that applying to do anything is nerve-racking. We also get that feeling. Every one of our leaders has gone through the exact program you are contemplating applying for. The leaders will be the first to tell you to take that step, don’t procrastinate.
