About the Book

Like almost everyone, Carl Binger has had moments where he’s wondered why he is in such a funk.

He is one of many who have suffered from depression. When it has hit, he has struggled with fighting disinterest in possessions, hobbies, and even Jesus.

Binger gives readers a raw and real look at depression through personal testimony and psalm in this memoir that includes wonderful illustrations and poems. As you read, you will learn how to:

• let go and overcome feelings of guilt;
• develop a meaningful relationship with the Lord;
• eliminate behaviors that are holding you back;
• overcome feelings of helplessness.

Throughout the book, Binger shares a candid account of his struggles in college and how he was almost arrested on one occasion. He also shares how becoming a believer delivered him from the need to smoke marijuana.

The book was written for the express purpose of letting those who suffer from depression know that they are not alone—and they can turn their heart and eyes to Jesus Christ for help.
