Apr 01, 2021 Season 1 Episode 20
Hope Johnson

I struggled with chronic depression for the better part of my twenties, and in that struggle, one of my most frequent emotions was shame. I especially experienced shame when I counted my blessings and still found myself unable to find joy in the many gifts God had given me.

Today, I share 3 things I learned about fighting depression when the practice of gratefulness backfired.  I pray that my story would both encourage you and help you find a way forward if you are struggling with depression.
