Twice as many women as men will experience depression sometime in their lifetime, and episodes for women are likely to start at earlier ages, last longer, and recur more frequently, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians (www.aafp.org). Many women are given medication to treat their troubling emotions, but medication alone does not treat the underlying problems that trouble the mind and spirit. Counselors Elyse Fitzpatrick and Dr. Laura Hendrickson provide biblical guidance on how to solve emotional problems biblically.

With a foreword by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, this straightforward, insightful volume is a one-stop resource for those suffering from troubling emotions who want to understand the biblical perspective of their problems, written by two Christian counselors, one of whom used to prescribe psychiatric medicines.

I urge you to read this book all the way through—with a prayerful heart and an open mind. It may be one of the most important, helpful books you have read. It will likely challenge your thinking on many fronts. It will certainly give you a vision for how your suffering (and the suffering of others) can become a path to great blessing and growth and can result in the display of God's glory in this fallen world.
-From the foreword by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
