Not about clinical depression. I'd prefer she state that explicitly, but it's clear enough that she's only addressing depressions with easily identifiable and external trigger..

Aperson who had read one of Barbara Johnson's other books recommended that Barbara's publisher put on the following label:

WARNING
For women with bladder weakness,
wearing your DEPENDS is recommended.

Alternating between serious issues and giggles, this book helped me keep my perspective as I dealt with difficulties.

Religion doesn't have to be gloomy. Barbara Johnson tells tales of her life that would knock most of us off our feet, and she can still laugh about it. She acknowledges God never has to say OOPS! He's always right. She says, just keep praying as if everything depended on Him and work as if everything depended on you. A good book for those times you only have 5-10 minutes and need a lift.

This is the first book I read of Barbara's and I was hooked. The negatives being turned into positives and the way God works through our lives if we trust him is definately a message sent in this book.
