Church Shares Honest Video About Depression That Changes the Way We See It


"There is nothing to be ashamed of." That's what Heather finally realized after years of struggling with depression and receiving an answer to her prayer in a completely unexpected way.

While visiting her doctor who told Heather she could prescribe her medicine that would help with her depression, Heather says, "I told her, 'I feel like the Savior should be able to take this away from me. I feel like my prayers should be answered that I don't want this and that he should take it away.'

"And she just looked me straight in the eye and she kind of got closer to me and she said, 'Whoever said I'm not the answer to your prayer?'

"And the Spirit penetrated my heart and said, she's right."
