Finally, a book that understands

This book is awesome, especially for those who are seeking help with depression. Unfortunately, our culture doesn't understand mental illness very well. This book does. And gives excellent, practical solutions on how building a strong relationship with the Savior can help us deal with this challenge. For me, it was a breath of fresh air, to see someone go through similar challenges and learn how they were able to get through it and do quite well. It gives me hope that I can do the same with the Savior's help.
