About-

Idealistic farm girl Teresa can't wait to leave home, to escape the ugliness. College offers her a soft landing place, but her history and genetics haunt her. Later, propelled by shame and possibilities, she rides away on her motorcycle. But one cannot escape the wounds of the past, or the God of creation. A fighter, Teresa finds inspiration in a little known place--five thousand year old poetry known as the Psalms. Immerse yourself in Teresa's world; see the battles of the world unfold in her path. Can love overcome fear? Can hope overcome depression? How does one find hope? Is healing possible? This inspiring true story includes helpful sidebars containing how-to information and assurance. Here is a close-up of the Holy Spirit in action.

P.S.

I wrote this book for you. I don't know you, but I know suffering intimately.

If this book helps you find what I've found, my suffering will have been worth it. You see, I never thought life could be good; joy possible; hope present; or that healing would be around the corner. I believed I might as well be dead. If people knew who I really was, they would despise me.

Now, I am glad to be alive. I am more than a survivor. The journey has been worthwhile. For a quick glimpse of my life, go to www.newpathways.us.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Cue the music, bring up the lights . . . Ahh . . . the happy ending . . . screeeeechhh--Teresa's gutsy, moving account of her struggle with the monster called "clinical depression" is testimony to God's love in the midst of suffering--that's right--in the midst of suffering. For those who suffer, this book can be a comforting guide and message of hope in a culture so addicted to 'happy endings.' Suffering is real for many, and Teresa's frank, insightful, and spiritual exploration of suffering is greatly needed."
--Gary E. Nelson, author of A Relentless Hope: Surviving the Storm of Teen Depression
