20 Encouragements for the Depressed Christian

July 2020 Release

Is depression weighing you down? Do you need biblical encouragement? As depressed Christians, there are many things that can burden us. We face myriad lies and challenges. Some of them, unfortunately, come from the church, and some of them don’t. This book offers deeply biblical (yet very readable) teaching and encouragement to live a fuller life. Among the issues addressed are: – Loving others when you’re depressed- Dealing with feelings of inadequacy – Being honest with God- Letting go of anxiety- Shame- What to do when people make insensitive remarks. With this book, you’ll take a step towards a more meaningful life with Christ and with others.
