**I received a copy of this book from Netgally in exchange for an honest review, thank you to the publisher, author and netgally for this opportunity.**
I haven't posted much for self help books, but there are a bunch that I have read and enjoyed and this is one of them. There is a lot in this book that is super helpful and insightful. You don't have to be diagnosed with Depression to read this book, I believe it is helpful for anyone. Sometimes it is hard to remain hopeful all the time and this book brings out ways to remain optimistic and hopeful everyday. There are Biblical references so if you are not into the Bible or those references then this might not be the book for you, though I do still recommend it. You never know what might help through dark times.
There were a lot of things in this book that spoke to me and hit close to home with how I feel and think. One thing that Poinsett says is how stress can trigger depression, for some reason I never really thought about it in that sense, and works to help readers answer the question of Why am I stressed. I admit I finished this book in less than 30 days because I just couldn't stop reading it when I would start each day. This is something I will continue to read periodically because no matter how many times you read it, there is seems to always be something you can take away from it. I found this to be very uplifting and refreshing. Perfect to read in the morning and then again at night.
I like how it was informative, but at the easy to follow and understand. I've found many books on this topic tend to be too clinical or scientific that makes it hard for one to put things into practice. This book is very practical when it comes to finding hope through the darkness of depression regardless of level. I would highly recommend this book and give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
