Item description for A Path Through the Sea: One Woman's Journey from Depression to Wholeness by Lillian Grissen...
Overview From breakdown to breakthrough, from deep depression to victorious joy, Grissen tells of her personal recovery in an honest, instuctive, and heartening memoir that will engage and encourage many who suffer from depression as well as those who care about them.
Publishers Description In this frank, instructive, and heartening personal story, Lillian Grissen tells about the severe depression that she herself experienced. Her pain - mental, emotional, and physical pain - was excruciating, and at first she felt hopelessly trapped in it. But with the help of a gifted Christian psychiatrist, Grissen began to stop blaming herself and to confront the core of her problem - her relationship as a child with her mother. Over a period of five long years - also with her husband's support, her pastor's compassionate counsel, and the right combination of therapy and medication, and God's gracious strength - Grissen gradually climbed out of the pit of her depression. "A profound yet simple book about a complex condition: clinical depression. Only one who has experienced the pain of the darkness of depression and the joy of the light of recovery could have had the courage to trace the arduous journey." - Katie Funk Wiebe, author of Bless Me Too, My Father

Good text for Christians suffering w/ depression Oct 22, 2002
This is an excellent text which tells the personal story of a Christian woman who experienced severe depression while serving with her family on the mission field in Africa. It is an excellent, quick read, which captures the inner experience and process of a woman who is seriously struggling with her depression and her faith in God. I find that clients find it encouraging to read, helping them feel like "I am not the only one who has had questions like this and felt this way."
absolutely amazing Mar 13, 1999
This book is inspiring and when I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. I could swear that the author knew me, and was writing about me. It was intense, informative, and explanatory. Where can I contact the author?
