Item description for Beauty from Ashes: A Gift of Encouragement by Dickerson & Lori Dickerson...
This novel was born out of the author's own experience with clinical depression. While in the throes of this illness she found that writing helped her cope with the intense pain and confusion that are a part of this disease. In reading over those journal entries she realized there was a definite movement from despair to recovery, ashes to beauty. The author began to see herself as a butterfly in the making, and prayed that God would use this tragic event in her life to prepare her to reach others in pain. The greatest strides were made when she turned to her faith for guidance. This became her source of strength. The book is a gift of love. It is an attempt to offer comfort and encouragement to those experiencing depression. It is the author's hope that the footprints left here will offer guidance to those who follow, making their trek a bit easier.
