“You need to write a book” My husband said. It was not on my radar to ever write a book. I’m a reader, not a writer. He said this to me because I have been healed from depression for 12 years, but I felt like I was having a relapse. Soon, I realized that I was not having a relapse, but that I was being pushed by God to write about my journey through depression into healing. I knew it was not for me, so much as for others that are suffering with depression right now. I feel that if I can help even one person, then this will all be worth it. My hope and prayer is for that to be the case. I also hope it can help those who are feeling helpless about how to help someone they love who is suffering with depression or mental illness. In the end, depression is not a choice.
