Book Description

Feb. 24 2009
Join author Ellen Richardson, a trained individual, marriage and family therapist, in Hope for the Heavy Heart: For the War-Weary and the Heaven-bent as she teaches that just as we did not create ourselves or will ourselves into being, the way of and time of our death needs to be left in the hands of the Creator. She learned this when unbelievable circumstances led her to try to take her own life, an attempt that landed her in a wheelchair. If your suffering has ever led you to think of ending your life, you need to read Hope for the Heavy Heart: For the War-Weary and the Heaven-bent. 'This was not the easiest book I've ever read, far from it! It's pages are littered with pain and despair and a painfully heavy heart. But each page is also dripping with hope. Hope that there is true, radiant, and unending light at the end of a very dark tunnel.' -Dion Oxford is the founding director of the Salvation Army Gateway, a 108-bed shelter for men who are homeless. Raised in a highly dysfunctional family, Ellen Richardson was diagnosed with major depression in her early 20's. Despite these challenges, she completed two degrees, including a Master of Divinity in Counseling. In her life, she had three near-fatal suicide attempts, one of which left her a paraplegic in May, 2001. Since then, she has worked as a therapist, has led group therapy, was leader/coordinator of an adult Bible class, has preached, and is currently a facilitator and speaker for the Mood Disorders Association of Ontario.

I am a close friend of Ellen Richardson. I know exactly what she has gone through and actually has the same experience. This book absolutely coincides with my feeling and all the thoughts inside my mind. It's a great book to read for someone who is experiencing difficulties in life.
