Stepping Out of Depression by Jamie Meyer

What should we do, how are we to think, when faith falters and hope disappears? Many women have wrestled with the issue of hopelessness in the face of their depression. Diagnosed at age forty-seven with a brain tumor, followed by a turbulent year of change and loss, the author relates her own slide into the darkness of clinical depression. With the support of her family, a compassionate Christian counselor, and appropriate medication, she found the healing she longed for. Now in full recovery, the author weaves threads of hope throughout the book’s pages.

Written in short, easy-to-read chapters, Stepping Out of Depression offers insight into the journey from depression to restoration. Filled with stories of women who have walked the “valley of the shadow,” readers will be encouraged to reach out to God and reconnect with others on the path to spiritual and emotional wholeness. Just as the author experienced healing of body, mind, and spirit-and a renewed connection with God and others-so can those with depression.

JAMIE MEYER has had a life-long love of writing and compassion for women who hurt. She has a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Nebraska, and has received a Diploma in Biblical Counseling from Light University, a ministry of the American Association of Christian Counselors. Jamie is a lay counselor in her church and co-leads a Christian depression support group, Fresh Hope. The author and her husband, Allen, have been married twenty-nine years and live in Lincoln, NE. They have three grown children.
