For all, it causes discomfort. For many, deep distress. For some, it robs them of life. Postpartum depression (PPD) is a far more common, misunderstood, and life-debilitating illness than most people realize. At a time when most moms expect to feel happy and content, those suffering from PPD experience the crushing weight of despair and anxiety. Living Beyond Postpartum Depression offers hope to not only those moms but also their husbands, family members, and friends. Because women battling PPD, and those walking with them through this valley, often don’t know what to do, this book explains what they’re facing physically, emotionally, and spiritually and how these three aspects are inseparably intertwined. Best-selling author Jerusha Clark shares her own PPD story while offering scripturally based truths that will help restore, heal, guide, and support readers. With practical advice, treatment options, and steps to moving forward, Living Beyond Postpartum Depression is the compassionate, biblical encouragement those affected by PPD need.

What should we do, how are we to think, when faith falters and hope disappears? Many women have wrestled with the issue of hopelessness in the face of their depression. Diagnosed at age forty-seven with a brain tumor, followed by a turbulent year of change and loss, the author relates her own slide into the darkness of clinical depression. With the support of her family, a compassionate Christian counselor, and appropriate medication, she found the healing she longed for. Now in full recovery, the author weaves threads of hope throughout the book's pages. Written in short, easy-to-read chapters, Stepping Out of Depression offers insight into the journey from depression to restoration. Filled with stories of women who have walked the "valley of the shadow," readers will be encouraged to reach out to God and reconnect with others on the path to spiritual and emotional wholeness. Just as the author experienced healing of body, mind, and spirit-and a renewed connection with God and others-so can those with depression. JAMIE MEYER has had a life-long love of writing and compassion for women who hurt. She has a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Nebraska, and has received a Diploma in Biblical Counseling from Light University, a ministry of the American Association of Christian Counselors. Jamie is a lay counselor in her church and co-leads a Christian depression support group, Fresh Hope. The author and her husband, Allen, have been married twentynine years and live in Lincoln, NE.

Many books focus on prenatal development and the health of a mom-to-be. While Expectant Parents does touch on important issues of pregnancy, its core purpose is help expectant parents understand key issues related to the arrival of a new child in the home, offering practical assistance as they prepare themselves for long-term family success. It’s often said that babies don’t come with an instruction manual. This book actually provides parents with information and practical steps for writing their own—as they work to create the kind of home and family they choose to build. This includes strengthening their own marriage relationship, setting plans and expectations for parenthood, increasing communication, and preparing for the new stage of their family life that is just ahead. Ideal for first-time parents, this book would also be helpful for couples wanting to explore and prepare for the emotional, physical, and spiritual life changes that come with the arrival of any new child into the family.

Therese Borchard may be one of the frankest, funniest people on the planet. That, combined with her keen writing abilities has made her Beliefnet blog, Beyond Blue, one of the most trafficked blogs on the site. BEYOND BLUE, the book, is part memoir/part self-help. It describes Borchard's experience of living with manic depression as well as providing cutting-edge research and information on dealing with mood disorders. By exposing her vulnerability, she endears herself immediately to the reader and then reduces even the most depressed to laughter as she provides a companion on the journey to recovery and the knowledge that the reader is not alone. Comprised of four sections and twenty-one chapters, BEYOND BLUE covers a wide range of topics from codependency to addiction, poor body image to postpartum depression, from alternative medicine to psychopharmacology, managing anxiety to applying lessons from therapy. Because of her laser wit and Erma Bombeck sense of humor, every chapter is entertaining as well as serious.

More than one out of 10 new mothers experience post-partum depression (PPD), yet few women seek help. After Marie Osmond, beloved singer and TV talk show host, gave birth to her seventh child (four of her children are adopted), she became increasingly depressed. One night, she handed over her bank card to her babysitter, got in her car, and drove north-with no intention of returning until she had emerged from her crisis. After she went public with her own experiences with PPD on Oprah and Larry King Live, the response was overwhelming. Now collaborating with a doctor who helped her through her ordeal, Marie Osmond will share the fear and depression she overcame, and reveal how she put it all behind her and is moving on with her life.
