The Church recently released a series of new resources on LDS.org for those enduring mental illness. Among them is a video series where members share their powerful, raw stories. This is Jenny's story.
After enduring sexual abuse as a child, Jenny struggled finding value growing up. After joining the Church, she hoped she would finally find happiness. But her membership in the Church only deepened her depression as she felt weighed down by expectations and the need to hide her past.
Only when Jenny reached out to her Heavenly Father asking for His friendship and trusting in Him entirely could Jenny begin to realize her own worth.
