My family and I were honored to have been invited by our Pastor, Tracy Turner, to share about our journey through depression over the last 20 years. During this pastoral interview, I recall the origins of my battle with depression, and how I resolved to fix myself by faith when I became a new believer in Christ. My husband, Brett, shares the challenges he faced as a husband walking through long periods of his wife's despondency. We all talk about the dangers of idolizing healing (both physical and spiritual), the problem with pursuing personal goals rather than God's goals for heart-change, and how the Lord worked through nearly two decades of our suffering sorrows in order to train us to act as ministers of his comfort to our teenager, who unexpectedly endured an intense period of autoimmune disease and despair herself, ultimately leading to the publication of the mini-book, Help! My Teen is Depressed. Pastor Tracy, Brett, and I seek to illumine the importance of being willing to comfort others with the same comfort that we ourselves have been comforted by God.

To hear more about our journey and how biblical counseling was a critical component of experiencing progressive healing from depression and a bipolar II diagnosis, stream the audio interview below from IBCD's Hope + Help Podcast.
