Finding Joy in Depression-Review
For those who have been suffering silently, I pray that sharing my story
opens the door for you to face your depression~Amanda Pelser
Recently I was blessed by the opportunity to read Amanda Pelser’s book, Finding Joy in Depression, an encouraging account of her journey through a disorder in which many suffer. This two part book first uncovers what depression is and the struggles experienced mentally, physically, and spiritually. The second part illustrates how she cared for herself, suggestions that may benefit anyone who is struggling with this.
Depression afflicts countless people and occurs in different forms from fairly minor to extreme. Included in the book is a list of symptoms that will perhaps help you in determining if you suffer from this illness and need assistance. All too often though, like Amanda, many go on for years living in denial, fear of condemnation, and just not knowing what to do or how to handle these issues.
As demonstrated in the author’s inspirational story, it is possible to move forward and minimize the effects of this condition. Recognizing triggers that make it worse, adjusting daily routines, and taking a look at eating habits are just a few of the strategies that may be used in initiating the process of healing.
After reading Amanda’s narrative I was compelled to learn more not only for myself, but for others around me. It revealed that there is hope to be had, help to be found, and joy to feel in the midst of depression! Won’t you join her in walking the road to recovery? Click here to view more details
