2019 has been an amazing first year for The Hope + Help Project podcast! I've been tremendously blessed by the guests who've appeared on the show, and I hope the conversations have been encouraging to the listeners as well. 

There have been a number of guest on the show whose books (or interview topics) have revolved around offering gospel hope and help in depression/grief contexts. If you are someone walking through a season of grief/depression, or have been called to care for someone who is, these podcast episodes are sure to offer helpful biblical insights, gospel-centered comforts, and practical applications for taking next steps by faith.

Every link listed below is stocked with recommended reading links as well as supplemental articles and resources composed by the authors themselves.
