My Battle with Depression

(Update: Thank you to everyone who informed me that the link to my depression post at The Homeschool Post was broken. I have fixed it now!)

Last November over at The Homeschool Post I wrote about my battle with depression.

I had never shared this part of my life online before, but God began to nudge my heart to write about it.

I pray that if anyone reading this struggles with depression, you will feel encouraged in knowing that you are not alone and that there is hope for your journey.

I invite you to read my post here.

Join Me at The Homeschool Post!

Blessings,

  1. Thanks for sharing your story! When I saw your post come up in my Google Reader this morning, I had to share with you about my book: Finding Joy in Depression. Take a look at the site: http://www.findingjoyindepression.com. It releases March 12.

  2. Hey Shannon! I wanted to stop by and thank you for your kind comment on my blog. I read your response to my questions about FIAR. Thanks so much!

    For some reason the link isn't working for your post on depression. Yes, we are not alone. I think many people struggle with depression. It's been hard, since Ethan went to heave, to not get down and depressed. Jesus is our only hope! And some good omega-3's and exercise! :)

    1. Shannon,
      Thanks for letting me know about the link. You are so right...Jesus is our only hope. (And I agree about the omega-3's and exercise...just need to make myself do it more regularly!)

    Thank you for sharing all of that. (((Shannon))) I admire you for being willing to reach out, to be real and to help others who are struggling. I also think that by talking it helps take away the shame. Thank you.

    Hugs

    1. Leslie,
      Thanks so much for dropping by! I appreciate your encouraging words. It does help to talk about the struggle and to learn that I'm not alone. Just clicked over to see the pic. on your blog of your beautiful family. Everybody's gotten so grown up, and I can't believe how Eliana has grown! She is just beautiful!
      I miss hanging out with all of you lovely FIAR ladies on the boards...life just keeps me too busy it seems. I do still lurk occasionally though. :)
      Blessings,
      Shannon
