Here is what others are saying…
“Both my husband and I have suffered depression for years, he far more than I. I was astonished to learn how many causes for depression there are and excited to discover the various ideas that the average person can apply to address these feelings. This seminar was easily the best, most practical one I’ve ever attended. Great job!
– Kathy W.

“I loved how Dr. Lovejoy and Dr. Knopf brought in the spiritual issues. It helped me better understand how God sees depression and how He sees me with it. I’ve long struggled with my faith over my emotions, and now I feel affirmed as never before. What a blessing this seminar has been to me! Great presenters, too! I can’t wait to read the book.”
– Linda M.

“When I came, I really didn’t know what to expect. But, as the seminar progressed, I was amazed about what I learned about myself. It was like they had read my autobiography. The things Dr. Lovejoy and Dr. Knopf shared have revolutionized the way I think about my problems…and about God. I’ll be first in line to buy the book.”
– Harold L.
