I am so excited to announce that I’ll be doing my show LIVE from the NW Ministry Conference at Overlake Church this Saturday from 11AM to Noon PST. This was a last minute change of plans so I’m excited to interview bestselling author and long-time friend Dr. Gregg Jantz. We’ll be talking about his book on depression entitled “Turning Your Down into Up: A Realistic Plan for Healing from Depression.” Then during the second half of the show I’ll be interviewing one of the keynote speakers at the NWMC and prolific author, Sherry Haney, about her new book, “Organic Outreach for Families: Turning Your Home into a Lighthouse.” Join me this Saturday live on 820AM KGNW or streaming live on http://www.kgnw.com, and pass the word!
You Can Hope Again
If you feel you will never get out of depression, Dr. Gregg Jantz has one word for you: hope. Gregg believes that since every person’s path into depression is unique, every path out will be unique as well. And healing is possible.
Turning Your Down into Up will help you:
• Determine whether you are depressed
• Understand why you can’t “just snap out of it”
• Decide whether medication might be a good option for you
• See the link between depression and overdependence on social media
• Understand how family dynamics affect you
• Be encouraged that you can find healing
This practical book includes a three-month personal recovery plan that focuses on spiritual renewal, emotional wellness, environmental balance, physical health, relational healing, and tech detox. Along with unique insights into treating the whole person, Turning Your Down into Up includes questions for reflection and journaling prompts. Here you will find real answers…Real freedom…Real hope.
“Turning Your Down Into Up is a comprehensive, whole-person approach to curing depression…with new answers and hope for the healing journey.”
—Dr. Catherine Hart Weber, author of Flourish: Discover The Daily Joy of Abundant, Vibrant Living
Organic Outreach for Families: Turning Your Home into a Lighthouse written by Kevin and Sherry, along with sections from all three of their boys, share insights from Scripture and give practical advice from their own experience to help you learn how to transform your home into a lighthouse of God’s amazing grace. The Harneys discuss several ways you can naturally share your faith with others:
• Reaching your own children with the message of Jesus
• Sharing God’s grace with your extended family
• Raising your children to be beacons of light in their schools and in your neighborhood
• Opening the doors of your home to make it attractive and welcoming
• Shining the light of God’s grace into your broader community
Balancing a concern for developing your home into a safe, secure environment with the biblical mandate for believers to be salt and light in the world, you will discover creative ways your family can naturally become the presence of Jesus where you live, through community activities, and as a witness to your neighborhood.
