Depression has many faces and many symptoms...
and it will affect everyone at some point in their lives.
You may be experiencing depression yourself;
or you may know someone who is.
Recently I came across a new series entitled 31 Days of Depression
wriiten by Melinda Todd from Trailing After God.
In 31 Days of Depression, Melinda shares exactly what depression is, healthy ways to combat the darkness and she also openly shares about her own personal testimony of how depression has affected her life.

What I liked most about this series is that Melinda spreads the information out over 31 days.
She gives you a topic to chew on, as well as time to implement what she has shared.
The advice is generic and may not be for everyone...and,
it is NOT intended to be professional or medical advice.
Her goal was to provide you with some tools for the battle;
and I believe she has done just that!!!
Visit 31 Days of Depression to be encouraged!!!
