Christian Women With Depression is simply a support site for women dealing with depression, fear and anxiety. I have been a victim and victor, having dealt with those three foes, on and off, since I was 12 years old.
If you are not a Christian, please do not hesitate to join us and share your story and ask for help. I used the word “Christian” in the title because I want everyone to know that my adult-life struggles and my victories have been directly related to my Christian experience. Personally, I don’t know of anything more heart-wrenching and hope-stealing than to lose your faith in God, or more specifically, lose the belief that God is a good God and that He loves me.
Therefore, there will be scriptures to encourage and enlighten, but you don’t have to subscribe to my point of view to participate. You will be loved and accepted no matter what you believe or don’t believe. I just want you to have peace and joy, and be rid of the debilitating effects of depression, fear and anxiety.
You can read my blog posts without having to sign up. You can also download a very open and painfully honest ebook created by some women I know that details their struggles with self-esteem. Some of them endured physical and sexual abuse. Others just share their journey of pain, shame and guilt. You can download these free resources at the Resources page.
But if you would like to share with other women who also struggle with these things, please join our private Facebook group. Go to http://www.facebook.com/groups/christianwomenwithdepression/ and request to join. Without fail, everyone woman there says that simply by coming, sharing, and being accepted and encouraged has lightened the load.
So I hope you will join us if you have need of us. Please tell other women about this group as well, because you never know who is secretly dealing. I look forward to getting to know you personally, and helping you experience victory in your struggles, whatever they may be.
