Mental Illness: Lament and Hope

I had the privilege of speaking last weekend at a unique, but much needed women’s event near my hometown. The topic was mental illness. Friday night, I began the weekend with a spiritual look at our grief and anxiety, along with the need to process both in ways that lead to health, not harm of ourselves or others around us. We looked at the lives of Job, Hagar, and Joseph for help, because, though our circumstances are different, our God is the same.

On Saturday, a psychiatric nurse practitioner gave valuable practical insight into diagnoses and treatment.

I really appreciate the vision of leaders at Harmony Church in Sumter, South Carolina for the women in their community. I hope such ministry spreads.

My first time on stage is at the 10 minute mark. My longer talk is at the 29 minute mark.
