She has been doing MUCH better! Her and I have been reading the Bible and praying daily and she's become much less depressed. She's seeking out a church and she said she fount a college group with amazingly nice people who are really on fire for God. She's getting much closer to God (as am I) and that can only be a good thing.



Thanks for your prayers everyone. I know they helped.
BUT...the million dollar question...

Have you begin seeking out ways of professional help for her?

Shart,
Thats's wonderful news.

Here's lyrics to a hynm that my father loved, you may know it:

Ere you left your room this morning,
Did you think to pray?
In the name of Christ our Savior,
Did you sue for loving favor,
As a shield today?



O how praying rests the weary!
Prayer will change the night to day;
So when life seems dark and dreary,
Don’t forget to pray.



And glad to hear things are better.

I asked her if she wanted to seek help yet and she said no. So far everything seems to be great, but if things start going downhill I'll insist that we get help.

And thanks for that hymn. I really like the lyrics. I may have to find some place to download it heh heh...

Shart--good news indeed! I do feel strongly that you, as you say, should insist on help if her suicidal feelings persist.

I'm not an expert, but I think some suicidal persons/clinically depressed personsl can be quite good at hiding it. So it might not be a bad idea to encourage her to seek help as strongly as possible.

You're both in my prayers.

Shart glad to hear the update. Sounds good

Remember that often people that say they don't want help are the ones that need it the most. People that are suicidal are remarkably good at hiding it.

Continued prayers
