My name is Monica Schlange and I love Jesus! I’ve been married to an incredibly patient and loving man for 17 years. We have two kids– a beautiful and smart 13-year-old young lady and a witty and smart 10-year-old boy. I’m a stay-at-home Mom and deeply love my job!
I grew up in a Christian home that was far from perfect, but my parents taught me about Jesus and I asked Him into my heart when I was 6 years old. I haven’t always lived my life passionate for the Lord, but I truly believe the godly foundation my parents gave me is why I’ve always come back to Him when I’ve gotten a bit off-course.
I began this blog in an effort to shine more light on depression in the Christian community. It isn’t often talked about in a healthy way. I long for the day when we can all be real about who we are and what we struggle with so that we can journey together towards a deeper relationship with the Lord.
I am not an expert in any way. This is the journey I’m on, which will look different from the journey others are on. If you are struggling with depression and are here for answers or help, please consider getting professional help, especially if you are having thoughts of suicide. Call your doctor. Stop reading this and go call. This will be here when you’re done.
Thank you for joining me! I look forward to sharing with you and hearing from you!
