New Blog

I know, I know. Another one???

While I don't want to spend a lot of time here talking about the depression I've been going through over the last seven months or so, I decided that I would try launching a blog with my friend Heidi specifically about depression. We've got a lot of ideas for it - some sharing where we are in the moment, and some sharing some information we've gleaned, and maybe some stories from others, as well as perspectives from those who have been walking through it with us.

The blog is called "If I Had Not Believed."

It is my desire to create a place where those who feel rejected or shut out because of their depression can see that they are still valuable.

I'm reminded of the passage in Romans in which Paul talks about the private members of the Body. I know from experience that people who struggle with depression won't admit it because they are afraid of rejection, or are often judged or overlooked.

I guess "If I Had Not Believed" is both my shot at processing what I'm going through and my attempt to think outside of myself to care for others, even if I feel I'm not good for anything.
