Hello Again!

It’s been awhile since I last blogged. Almost a year to be more accurate. The thing is I’ve wanted to. But I haven’t.

One of the most important things I’ve found for getting through a difficult season is being surrounded by community. We weren't built to live life in solitude, but so often that’s what depression convinces us is best: to hide away, keep our problems to ourselves and pr...

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

your works are wonderful,

 

I know that full well" (Psalm 139:14, NIV).

For those with eating disorders, these words often become a nice sentiment hidden behind filing cabinets of negative self-criticism. We want...

I have no doubt that most Christians want to know what they can do to help someone dealing with depression. The problem is that many don’t know how, so they give a few well meaning suggestions and a couple Bible verses in the hopes that'll break through a barrier they...
