  1. It is pretty good to go from “I don’t care” to “Reach Out.”

  2. Loved the series! Excellent tools in a bite-size format to live a healthier life!

    Just wanted to give you a heads-up that I have shared a post about your series with my readers at EMPOWERING Christian Women; thank you for providing such a necessary resource for those who are struggling.

    You can find the post here:

    MANY blessings!!!

  3. Bless you Melinda for sharing this and also “How I forgave my Molester” (have not yet read but bookmarked these both as a MUST READ). I’m just curious why you never completed the 31 days and it ended on day 29. I just popped over here from Holley Gerth’s blog and did not realize it was from last October until I started reading post by post. What a beautiful outreach and ministry! Thank you for your openness and sharing both topics.

    In Christ’s love,

    • Thank you, Peggy and welcome! Oh, I did complete the 31 days but it looks like I forgot to link the last two days 🙂 Off to fix that!

  4. Hi Melinda. I’ve just stumbled across your site, and it has blown me away. The 31-day series on depression is something I really need to work my way through. I’ve suffered from depression for years, due to issues in my past, and I’m only now starting to deal with them. Its a long, painful process, but it is so encouraging to read words like these, to know that I’m not alone in this.

    Thanks so much for being willing to share your experiences.

    • Welcome, Claire! I hope that you find it helpful and thank you for the encouragement!

  5. How do I start the challenge? When I clicked on it nothing happened.

  6. Hi 31 days of reading coming up, they say it takes about 17 days to break a habit, do you think depression can be broken like a habit?

    Thank you for the terrific read.

    • I’m not sure it can be broken like a habit but I do know that the sooner we start identifying the signs that depression is approaching, we can work on ways to ward it off. I tend to naturally lean this way and so it helps me to have an arsenal ready to take it on, day by day, and sometimes minute by minute.
