Overcome by severe depression and an inability to cope with ministry pressures, author Chrystal Hansen was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder. Two years later, after numerous appointments with a psychiatrist and psychologist and taking medications, she experienced a miraculous and medically documented healing.
God restored her broken and confused heart and uses the miracle to inspire you to believe and accept His hand to move in your place of need. To help people with similar problems, the author shares her personal story of physical, emotional, and spiritual experiences, as well as her emerging understanding about the roots of her struggles.
After Chrystal's healing more than 12 years ago, God led her to start an organization dedicated to the message ministry of transformation, Emerging Life Ministry Solutions. The ministry equips those desiring a deeper revelation of Christ and helps people journey through some of life's hardest places of pain, hurt, and trauma. Community initiatives to 'at-risk youth' are also a part of the vision and outreach of Emerging Life Solutions. It's not a self-help thing-it's a God thing.
Also discussed is how the Church can more effectively help those struggling with depression and other emotional and mental illnesses. A key lesson to be learned is the redemptive purpose that suffering can have in your life.
