Writer, mama, and former silent-struggler Laura Harris shares her vulnerable story about the night on the bathroom floor when she realized that she was on the verge of depression and had to speak up about it.
IF YOU HAVE EVER STRUGGLED WITH HOW TO RESPOND TO DISCOURAGEMENT IN YOUR DREAM, THIS WAS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
This episode provides some real-world tools for dealing with discouragement, whether in life or as it relates to your dream. Laura talks us through her darkest moment—when she was on the verge of depression—and how God brought her through it with truths to help tackle the lies she was believing and actual steps she could take any time she finds herself in that place again. Laura’s honesty will remind you of the good that can come out of your own vulnerability about your deepest struggles.
Listen and you’ll learn strategies to add to your toolbox, including the reminder that “feelings aren’t facts.” Laura also teaches us, through her example, how to find the people who are struggling with some of the same things and why that’s so valuable, mostly so that you can stop believing the lie that you’re the only one who’s ever felt this way.
If you’re currently feeling alone in your struggles or the pursuit of your God-shaped dream, I promise you, you’re not! I hope you’ll join us over in the Devoted Dreamers Insiders Facebook Group and get to know some fellow strugglers. We’d love to meet and encourage you toward Christ.
