Monica Morgan (www.MonicaMorganSpeaks.com) interviews Juanita Rasmus on 910AM Superstation about her new book from InterVarsity Press on depression and recovery.
In her new book, Learning to Be, Juanita, shares these key messages:
- Depression and suffering are not death sentences. There is hope, and there are spiritual practices that can serve as means of support as you seek the probable causes and pursue the invitation for the transformation of the heart (i.e., mind, emotions, and spirit) out of the darkness.
- Depression is an invitation into a new way of living by setting boundaries, learning to say no, and letting go of beliefs that no longer serve us, etc.
- Our illnesses, midlife crisis, and other challenges just may be a space for learning what it means to ground ourselves in the central being who is God, and in so doing to find our own being.
- For many individuals, depression is an invitation to create want-t, those personal desires that arouse passion, pleasure, and joy for living life authentically.
