A few years ago, I suffered from post-partum depression on top of depression. The medication didn’t work well, but it cleared a path in my brain, allowing me to think through the darkness to turn to God. I’m not advocating for people to quit taking medication. However, days after meditating on Exodus 14:14 repeatedly, I started to write poems about my kids and felt a bit better. I talked to God some more, and slowly I was writing again. God had restored to me the passion of writing I lost over the years. As a side effect of being swept up by life situations and obstacles, I lost a part of me.
