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.

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.

Maybe right now you're still feeling the sadness of isolation and stress and just ... depression
Maybe you miss gathering with your faith community
Maybe you're looking for a resource for the spiritual life you really have - not the one that feels impossible to attain

Imagine if ... 

You didn't feel alone in your experience
You could be in conversation with someone who is traveling the same kind of journey
You had ideas for new ways of connecting with God
You could keep it real about all those spiritual platitudes like: Sure they that wait on God will mount up with wings as eagles, but can we talk about how much actual waiting sucks?

You can find this guide in the

Journeyers Say ....

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

I already own a copy of "Not Alone." Can I get a reduction in price?

A digital copy of "Not Alone" comes with the 40 Day Faith Journey. You can gift your existing or new copy to a friend if you like.

I'd like to take this journey with a friend or small group.

If you have a friend who you think will benefit from this, you can purchase the 40 Day Faith Journey as a gift for them. Just put their name and email in the sign-up section.

Can I read the "Not Alone" devotional on my Kindle or Nook?

Yes, you have the option to download the book right to your Kindle or Nook. I provide instructions.

I don't have a Kindle or other eReader, can I access the devotional?

Yes. I'll give you the option to download as a PDF too

I don't have a printer - or much ink in the printer I do have.  Will I have to print out the eJournal to use it?

You can if you want to. But if you want to save some trees, enjoy the colors, or just prefer working off your laptop or tablet, you can download it and type right into the journal.

What's up with the vegan recipes?

It’s a fun bonus.  Some people are used to fasting, or going meatless on a spiritual journey.  This just makes it a little easier for you.  And if you’re not, it’s something fun to try if you want.

When will the weekly live session be?

If you sign up before February 10, you’ll get a poll to vote for the best time for you and I’ll choose a time that works best for the most people. If you miss it, no problems, you'll get a replay to listen to at your convenience.

Is this for all people of faith, or just for Christians?

Not Alone references Jewish and Christian scriptures. Readers from Jewish and Christian backgrounds have enjoyed Not Alone.  There are no strong statements of Christian doctrine, but this will be most comfortable for people familiar with Abrahamic faiths.

Join the journey and receive a guide and resources that will keep you inspired in the experience of depression and faith
