“There are many fine, worthy, and insightful books written about depression but in my view, Dr. Bengtson’s trumps them all. Our first step of making it to the other side of the valley of depression may well be falling into the competent and compassionately written words of this God-honoring book: Hope Prevails.”

Marilyn Meberg, Speaker, Women of Faith

“As a counselor, I have read many books on depression, but I have never read a book that deals with the spiritual aspect of healing as thoroughly as does Hope Prevails. Dr. Bengtson draws from her own personal journey as well as her professional experience. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has tasted the pain of depression or knows a friend who is depressed.”

Gary Chapman, Ph.D., #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 5 Love Languages

“It is refreshing to have a board-certified neuropsychologist acknowledge the spiritual component of depression, but it is even more impressive that Dr. Bengtson would be willing to share her own journey through the fog of despair. Her personal insights are invaluable for those who are struggling with what is often described as ‘the common cold of mental illness.’”

Dr. Neil T. Anderson, founder and president emeritus of Freedom in Christ Ministries and author of Overcoming Depression

When God Gave Me More Than I Could Handle

Tears fell from my eyes as I hung up the phone from my physician. He was compassionate and kind, and I could tell he felt bad that there was only so much he could do to ease my pain and suffering while we searched for answers.

Friends had been texting, “Have you heard anything?” “What’s the latest?”

I sat for a moment blinking back the tears as my phone pinged to alert of another message coming in.

“I can’t handle any more,” I typed in response to a friend’s request for an update.

That’s just it. People, Christians included, often say that God won’t give you any more than you can handle, but that’s just not true. We’ve gotten it all wrong.

Have you ever been assaulted by a whiplash of circumstances and more than anything needed peace to flood your soul?

In my quiet time, as I prayed, I sensed God saying, “Choose to look at the problems you face as opportunities to see me at work. Choose to view them as opportunities to trust me more.”

Little did I know I was walking into a lion’s den full of opportunity that day.
