Looking for a spiritual resource that keeps it real
with the experience of depression?
Are you tired of looking for a devotional that resonates with your actual experience?
Are you looking for a guide for this part of your spiritual journey?
Do you want to learn more about living at the intersection of depression and faith?
Are you tired of people telling you that you are "too blessed to be stressed"?
What if there was a way to be honest about depression without giving up on faith?
What if there was a way to express your faith through life's ups and downs?
What if you had a resource for your everyday spirituality - not the super holy one that people expect you to have?
That's why I've put together the 40 Day Faith Journey.
I offer a guide for reflecting on your everyday spirituality that lets you be real about the challenges of being faithful while living with depression - and shows you some light posts along the way.
You will have a chance to learn more with me live
I want people of faith who live with depression and those who love them to know that they are not alone.
I'm a professor of religion, a religious leader and a person of faith who lives with a depressive condition. Many years ago, I was looking for a devotional that was honest about how hard it can be to live with depression. About how I liked God just fine, but I wasn't sure about my ability to hold onto the faith when I was really sad. I couldn't find anything, so I wrote one. The devotional has been taught to ministers in seminaries around the country and used in churches, synagogues and book clubs.
I want us to have access to resources that don't ask you to be super holy and pious - because I know you don't have the bandwidth for all of that. I'm glad to offer you the 40-Day Faith Journey with the devotional and additional resources for your real spirituality.
This will resonate with your experience and the faith journey that goes along with it
You'll learn more about how it feels to live with depression and the faith challenges and joys that come with it
You'll get a keeping-it-real approach to your everyday spirituality and a guide for this path
By the end of this journey ...

I saw myself in your book - now I remind myself I am not alone but always with God and others.
Depression is hard, and one of the hardest things about it is how isolating it can be. What an encouragement it has been to participate in this journey that reminded me daily that I am not alone in this experience!
Not Alone lives up to its name. I felt I had a host of silent witnesses journeying through this process with me. And it made a difference.
