About the Book

This book was written in order to share with readers there is hope in overcoming bouts of depression and anxiety. Specifically using the teachings of God’s holy word to encourage and uplift fellow believers who may be feeling less than themselves. This book was designed to speak to not only those suffering from depression, but to others as well. The audience of Christian leaders, family, friends, and co-workers alike who may have difficulty understanding the illness and what it is doing to their loved one. It offers ways to support and not condemn the person experiencing those feelings. The religious sects and its counterparts often place such a stigma on mental illness, that it makes it extremely difficulty for the victim to accept the fact they are suffering, and more importantly get the help they need. This book will hopefully break down those walls between religion and mental illness. We as Christians must learn to love and to not condemn, just as Christ himself has done. Sometimes being told anxiety is sin by spiritual leaders will produce the natural response of denial. Thus, allowing the darkness of depression to send fellow believers “over the edge.” This short revelation is designed to let others suffering from depression know they are not alone, and that God loves them and will never leave them in their helpless state.
