40 day faith journey

Reflecting on Faith and Depression

With 40 Day Faith Journey, you don't have to pretend that sadness isn't a part of your life and faith.

Only $39!

What if there was a way to be honest about depression without giving up on faith?

That's why I've put together the 40 DAY FAITH JOURNEY

I offer a guide for reflecting on your everyday spirituality that lets you be real about the challenges of being faithful while living with depression
- and shows you some light posts along the way

join the 40 day faith journey!

You will get a devotional and journal to reflect on faith and depression.

You'll have resources for daily edification.

You'll learn spiritual practices you can really do (nothing against prayer and fasting) 

I want people of faith who live with depression and those who love them to know that they are not alone. 


I'm a professor of religion, a religious leader and a person of faith who lives with a depressive condition. Many years ago, I was looking for a devotional that was honest about how hard it can be to live with depression. About how I liked God just fine, but I wasn't sure about my ability to hold onto the faith when I was really sad. I couldn't find anything, so I wrote one. The devotional has been taught to ministers in seminaries around the country and used in churches, synagogues and book clubs. 

I want you to have access to resources that don't ask you to be super holy and pious - because I know you don't have the bandwidth for all of that. I'm glad to offer you the 40-Day Faith Journey with the devotional and additional resources for your real spirituality.

This is for you!

Journeyers Say ....

I saw myself in your book - now I remind myself I am not alone but always with God and others.


Depression is hard, and one of the hardest things about it is how isolating it can be. What an encouragement it has been to participate in this journey that reminded me daily that I am not alone in this experience!

Not Alone lives up to its name. I felt I had a host of silent witnesses journeying through this process with me. And it made a difference.

Frequently Asked Questions

I already own a copy of "Not Alone." Can I get a reduction in price?

A digital copy of "Not Alone" comes with the 40 Day Faith Journey. You can gift your existing or new copy to a friend if you like.

I'd like to take this journey with a friend or small group.

If you have a friend who you think will benefit from this, you can purchase the 40 Day Faith Journey as a gift for them. Just put their name and email in the sign-up section.

Can I read the "Not Alone" devotional on my Kindle or Nook?

Yes, you have the option to download the book right to your Kindle or Nook. I provide instructions.

I don't have a Kindle or other eReader, can I access the devotional?

Yes. I'll give you the option to download as a PDF too

I don't have a printer - or much ink in the printer I do have.  Will I have to print out the eJournal to use it?

You can if you want to. But if you want to save some trees, enjoy the colors, or just prefer working off your laptop or tablet, you can download it and type right into the journal.

What's up with the vegan recipes?

It’s a fun bonus.  Some people are used to fasting, or going meatless on a spiritual journey.  This just makes it a little easier for you.  And if you’re not, it’s something fun to try if you want.

Is this for all people of faith, or just for Christians?

Not Alone references Jewish and Christian scriptures. Readers from Jewish and Christian backgrounds have enjoyed Not Alone.  There are no strong statements of Christian doctrine, but this will be most comfortable for people familiar with Abrahamic faiths.

I joined after Ash Wednesday 2021. What's the difference?

If you joined the journey before Ash Wednesday 2021, you also got a weekly live call with me.  I could only offer this as a Lenten special.

Join the journey and receive a guide and resources that will keep you inspired in the experience of depression and faith
