… full of wise counsel, practical help, and gospel truth, while also being easy to read and accessible for all teens, regardless of Christian faith. I pray that this book will help teens battling with mental health issues to open up and speak to someone.

Warm, accessible and wise, this is a great resource for young people facing depression and those who care for them. It’s a little book but packed with bible teaching, personal experience and practical advice.

… deals delicately about the complexity and longevity of depression, weaving it through the complexity of her own story and the complexity of the Psalms – helping us walk with our Saviour through the various valleys we encounter. Just read it – it’s very real, very honest, very practical, very biblical, and very helpful.
Innes Macsween, Assistant Minister, Smithton Church, Inverness
Personal, engaging and beautifully honest it explores the reality of what depression looks and feels like. This book gives hope to those who might be suffering both through what professionals may offer with medical help and psychological support, but also the hope that the God of the bible can give us, the God who not only understands our struggles but who helps us within them.
Dr Tracey Foy, GP and minister’s wife, East Sussex
The statistics say that many (or most) of our young people will experience at least some symptoms of depression. In this book those young people will find the gentleness, warmth and understanding that only comes from hard experience. They will also find Christ and the promise that he can be their good shepherd through the darkest places.
