Publisher's Description

A Kind Friend to Walk with You...

For many, depression is associated with shame and humiliation -- even a lack of faith. But in this refreshingly honest and oh-so-very-real revelation of one woman's journey through depression, you'll hear the voice of a kind friend. And in her words you'll find hope and renewed confidence that will guide you through your own darkness and into the light.

  • If you are currently suffering from depression -- this book will help you realize you're not alone.

  • If you have a loved one dealing with depression -- this book will help you understand.

  • If you are a mental-health professional -- you now have a new tool to encourage your clients.



Along with the humor, Chonda shares practical insight, biblical teaching, emotional support, and sympathetic concern. Whether you've experienced depression in your own life or in the life of someone you love, this friend has something to offer you: help, hope and, believe it or not, plenty of laughter.

      I have read this book 3 times and each time, I read something that I missed before. Chonda is so honest and transparent in this book to a degree that you don't see very often from a person of her status. I laughed with her and I cried with her on these pages. I related, personally, to so many things that she has been through in her life. She may market herself as a Christian Commedienne but she really has a way with words that few people are ever able to acquire. Chonda shares with you some of the paths her life has taken as well as the healing she has found. She takes on the subject of anti-depressants, especially in the Christian community, as a "tool" that God has allowed for people that need to use them. Chonda speaks from her heart from the beginning of the book to the end.

      This book is a must-read read if you have ever battled depression or if you know/love somebody that has ever battled depression. It is easy to read and hard to put down.
