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:
Thanks so much Karla!
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!
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!
How do I start the challenge? When I clicked on it nothing happened.
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.
