Overview

Laughing in the Dark: A Comedian's Journey through Depression by Chonda Pierce

A Kind Friend to Walk with You...

For many, depression is associated with shame and humiliation — even a lack of faith. But in this refreshingly honest and oh-so-very-real revelation of one woman's journey through depression, you'll hear the voice of a kind friend. And in her words you'll find hope and renewed confidence that will guide you through your own darkness and into the light.

  • If you are currently suffering from depression — this book will help you realize you're not alone.
  • If you have a loved one dealing with depression — this book will help you understand.
  • If you are a mental-health professional — you now have a new tool to encourage your clients.

Along with the humor, Chonda shares practical insight, biblical teaching, emotional support, and sympathetic concern. Whether you've experienced depression in your own life or in the life of someone you love, this friend has something to offer you: help, hope and, believe it or not, plenty of laughter.

I bought this book several years ago and put it aside. I found it recently two days before my husband was hospitalize for depression. I picked it up and started reading and could not put it down. So much sounded like my husband's life. Other parts truly helped me to understand this awful illness and the effects on everyone involved. Told with truth, humor and love this is a must read for anyone dealing with depression.
