This blog is about depression. My heart has always been to encourage people – especially Christians – to find biblical encouragement that will help ease their anxiety and depression and also, assure them that their condition is no more shameful than having earache or a tickly cough.
Just because I have written 6 books does not mean that I am now going to change my topic and start promoting them like crazy.
I want to stay true to the purpose of being on WordPress, so I have decided to plug the books of others from time to time – books that I believe will directly or indirectly assist you on your journey to complete mental healing.
The subject of mental health can still be a little taboo amongst ‘saved sinners’, and I enjoy talking to those who are often secretly battling with this dreadful affliction.
The books I shall review and recommend are those from my own bookshelf. They are from a variety of Christian authors and cover a variety of subjects; but like I stated above, I believe they can be a stepping-stone towards your freedom because they are wonderfully biblical and amazingly inspiring.
So yes, to conclude, I will add a few chapters of my own from my author website if I feel it is relevant to your uplifting, but I don’t want to become one of those insular sales people who spend their entire time finding ways to subtly wave their products in your face, with the desperate hope that one day, you’ll get the hint and buy their wares.
Does that make sense? Do you have products that are for sale online that you do not like to promote in the same pushy way that most others are doing? Are you fed up of those ‘regular posting’ tactics that you see so many sellers do?
Business people everywhere would tutt and say,
“Well, you won’t sell your stuff then!”
I would reply,
“If you knew the joy that writing those books brought to my spirit and the continued happiness when I think about how much God helped me write them, format them, edit them, design them, publish them, open the parcel they arrived in and then was blessed myself when I read them, you would not even open your mouth to judge me as being a pathetic sales woman.”
“If you knew what a blessing it is to hear just one reader say to me how much a chapter encouraged them, made them laugh, stimulated their imagination, empowered them and gave them hope, you would not question my apparent lapse attitude towards marketing.”
You may be curious to the point of wanting to hop over to my book website, but then decide to not make a purchase – and that is entirely up to you. I am not going to bring out every ploy in the business world, in order to coerce you to change your mind and press the ‘Buy’ button.
Similarly, if one of the publications from the authors that I showcase on here, prompts you to feel you want to buy it instead of mine, (I’m not an affiliate nor am I on any commission) so be it – I am happy – genuinely happy, because like me, that other writer wrote a book to bless the lives of others.
I look forward to hearing about the books that you have read which you have enjoyed. We all know that the best life-changing book is the Bible. So, if that is all you have time to read, don’t feel guilty! Read it. And read it again. It is because of the Author of that book, why I wrote all of mine. I cannot do anything without Jesus.
Wishing you much joy and plenty blessings.
