Faith Holds

A few months ago my friend Cam sent me a link to a great website.  I immediately fell in love with the encouraging posts and soothing images.  I was new at this blogging thing and thought that I could "live" in this "beach-house" for a while.  I submitted my request to write for them.  I waited and waited... and nothing happened.  So I went around living life and holding on to the hope of writing for this awe-inspiring site.

Sometime in August I received the e-mail about guest posting for (In)courage.  I screamed my typical 13 year old squeal and tried not to wake the baby.  I was so humbled by the opportunity to write for this site.  The opportunity to share a very personal story with a group of women who would embrace it with care was as Lisa-Jo put it - couch jump worthy!

As soon as I got the news about this great posting opportunity I knew what God wanted me to write about. It was a story I carried in my heart and had written on my mind.  I knew one day I would be given the right time to share.  Please join me at (In)courage as I share a story of how my faith held our family during one of the most horrific times in our lives.

Thank you for sharing about your husbands depression. I too have depression and write about it on my blog but its always good to hear it from the other side. Your writing is beautiful.
