Shedding Light on Depression

By: Peggy Ployhar


Current studies show almost 10% of the American population is affected by depression each year; depression among children is increasing at a rate of 23% per year. Neither Christians nor the homeschool community are immune to these statistics. Peggy knows first hand how dark and limiting depression can be. She shares from the point of view of someone who has personally struggled with depression, as a parent of a child who struggled with depression, and as a Christian counselor who has helped many women walk through and eventually overcome their depression. This workshop Biblically dissects the clinical reasoning behind depression and the current methods of treatment, while revealing how Jesus, the true Light, can dispel even the most cavernous darkness.
