"There are two things that make Steve Austin's voice unique and worth hearing. First, he's been through hell and come back with the kind of hopefulness that is as contagious as it is compelling. People are always better for having encountered such people. Second, he's candid. He says the thing that so many are thinking but are afraid to say, and shares the details of the story that others would hide--and he does all of that without being smug or self-aggrandizing. On the contrary, Steve's candor is tempered by a grace and compassion that makes it safe for others to be honest about what they're experiencing and to also encounter hope. In Catching Your Breath, Steve offers himself as a companion to those who feel like they are drowning, not as a lifeguard but as a coach saying 'Hey. You can swim!'''
-Andre Henry, Managing Editor at RELEVANT Media Group
"Steve Austin knows the wounds of hell about which he writes so movingly in this book. In the case of every wound he knows, Steve has turned that wound into a source of healing power. That is why he is one of the most mobilized, energized, walking witnesses of New Life I have ever known. Now, fasten your seatbelts and prepare for a hefty dose of New Life for yourself in his words."
-Rev. Ed Bacon, Author of 8 Habits of Love, and a regular guest on Oprah Winfrey's Soul Series
"My friend Steve understands more than most that we are messed up people living in a messed up world with other messed up people. He understands the human condition. He refuses to sugarcoat the depth of his own desperation and need. But he also understands that God meets our messed-up-ness with his mercy over and over and over again. He understands that God loves bad and broken people because bad and broken people are all that there are. He's uncomfortably honest, remarkably compassionate, and beautifully rough around the edges. Thank you for your friendship, Steve. And thank you for this book. Page after page you reminded me that 'It is finished.'"
-Tullian Tchividjian, author of One-Way Love, and Jesus + Nothing = Everything
"Catching Your Breath is a fearless work in which Austin demonstrates vulnerability and nakedness; showing us his scars so we can begin to be comfortable with our own. His story travels with us to places of deep pain, but his words of encouragement provide a ladder and light for the climb out."
-Suzanne DeWitt Hall
Author of the Rumplepimple adventures and Where True Love Is: An Affirming Devotional for LGBTQI+ Individuals and Their Allies
"If you are among the multitudes who need help to just survive the next 24 hours, this book will be a God-send."
-Dr. Paula Champion Jones, Retired UMC pastor

Easy-to-read doesn't mean light on impact, though! Steve hits hard on key topics and includes some thoughts at the end of chapters to help the reader take their own steps to achieve a state of calm in their lives.
Steve offers good, practical advice from the perspective of someone who's been-there-done-that. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or just life in general, this book will help you.
I felt rather than write a standard review, I needed to write a personal thank you instead. You have given a great gift to me personally with this book. Your raw honesty and naked (or “nekkid”, as you would say) vulnerability throughout the telling of your story, is not only courageous and inspiring - it’s life saving, Steve. It is people like you sharing stories like yours that will bring much needed healing to very wounded souls all over the world from all walks of life. I know, because that’s exactly what you’ve done for me with “Catching Your Breath”. And I simply cannot thank you enough, but felt I needed to at least try. You, Steve Austin, are a blessing of hope for the world. You are a blessing to me.
Life is tough. We are all wounded by it to some extent. In Catching Your Breath, Steve reveals his wounds and endeavors to use them to heal and to help others heal.
I highly recommend this book!
