Tell us a little about yourself. I am a stay at home mom of three kids ages 2, 5, and 8. We are originally from Missouri but now live in Minnesota. I have a heart for women, especially those who have suffered with postpartum issues.
What was your motivation behind this project? I went to our local Christian bookstore looking for a Christian perspective on postpartum depression. There was no book on the shelf. The clerk asked me to pray about whether or not this was something God would have me do with my experience. Within a month I started writing.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 directed the project. I want to comfort others with the comfort God has given me. I want women to know they are not alone. There is help and there is a Healer!
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I wrote this while I was sick. I edited after I was well but the bulk of the book was written as I was experiencing the illness. It was difficult to say the least but I knew I was being obedient. God has orchestrated every step.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? People who know me personally will see the "food for thought" sections at the end of each chapter and see my personality in that. I quote many of my favorite people and characters in these sections: Charlie Brown, Beth Moore, Charles Spurgeon, Mother Teresa, D.L. Moody, Stephen Covey, John Wooden, and many others. You can see who has had an influence on me by who I've quoted.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Don't be scared to get help. God didn't intend for us to suffer with PPD. I believe it's an extension of our increased pains in childbirth. God wants us to live abundant lives, enjoying our children that he's blessed us with. Get help.
