About the Book

It’s time for depression to come out of the church closet. Often, the church’s reaction to those depressed is, “Just get over it,” “You have hidden sins in your life,” “Pray more,” “Have greater faith,” or “Read your Bible more.”

People would never say to a diabetic, “This is all in your head. Quit taking insulin.” Nor would they say to someone with a broken leg, “Just get up and walk.” Those who are depressed take these messages, and it makes them feel more guilty instead of understood, driving them further from getting help.

Bright Spots in the Darkness offers inspiration, action points to manage depression and Bible promises. Bright Spots does not offer a quick and easy cure. Severe depression is not usually solved quickly or with self-help books. This book takes depression seriously and offers help along the journey.
