Resources & Links For Moms with Depression

Resources for Women Struggling With Depression

Depression. Mental Illness. A scary topic that needs much grace and love and awareness shared among the Body of Christ. Help me to do just that by sharing this page. We must be willing to set aside our pride and show GRACE to one another no matter our feelings or thoughts on the topic of mental illness.

I wanted to have a place where I could keep a list of books, blog posts & ebooks that have helped and encouraged me in my struggle with depression. I want to share with you that I feel there is no CURE ALL for depression. Just as in life and parenting and everything else, I wish there was an easy 1-2-3 formula to zap away my problems. But, there isn’t. You need to find what works for you, and sometimes, that is just surviving today.  I personally have taken medication for several years now and it has been a lifesaver. I know others who will not do so. I have also found my moods greatly affected by foods, but I know of others who don’t find help there. So, God created our bodies so uniquely and individually…we need to be close to Him and willing to try different things to seek after the joy He has for us.

Please note: I am not a doctor or a trained counselor. I am just a mom who struggles with depression. It is my hope and prayer to share my experiences as an encouragement to other moms.

  1. Thanks for sharing this list! I am currently reading A Place of Healing. When my depression is at the worst I tend to listen to the Psalms on my Bible app to get myself to sleep.

    1. Debbie, are you enjoying A Place of Healing?? I really, REALLY loved that one. Actually I’m a little over halfway through it and never finished it. That is what happens to books on our iPad that I don’t have in front of me to remind me I need to finish it. 🙂 I love the idea of listening to Psalms on an app before bed!! I might try that!! Thanks for commenting. 🙂

      1. I am actually really liking the book! Years ago I read her book, When God Weeps. It is excellent!!!!! Joni really has a deep understanding about suffering.

  2. HI there, I subscribed to your blog and I am wondering how to download the 31 days of encouragement? Thanks!
