Bonnie shares the importance of emotional honesty about our struggles with depression, anxiety, numbness, and panic attacks. Though there might be people in our lives who make us feel ashamed of our struggles, God does not. He only meets us with his compassion and his promises for mercy and rest.

The pandemic has left a lot of us with feelings of depression as we struggle feeling overwhelmed in our personal lives, parenting, our families, marriages, and the political division that fill the news.

If you are struggling with depression or anxiety, this episode is for you.
