How to Handle Walking Through Depression (Thrive Moms Video)

How do I handle depression in motherhood

Walking through depression can be a dark, deep, lonely season of life–especially for mothers. It’s a topic I’ve written about in a number of ways, and a battle I continue to fight against by faith with every ounce of strength I am afforded by the Spirit.

In this most recent video feature at Thrive Moms, I share 4 huge Biblical truths that have helped comfort me as I’ve traversed the fog of depression. It is in these times of doubts, sorrows, and hopelessness that we are helped by remembering God’s sympathy, care, and compassion.

A bruised reed he will not break, my friend. Depression, though painful and horrid to endure, will not be the end of you.
