About Me

My name is Shantelle Avery.

I'm a wife,
stay-at-home mom,
member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints,
lover of all things crocheting, crafting, and sewing,
and I struggle with depression.

This is a blog designed to share personal stories to help those
struggling with mental illness to find hope, validation, support, love, and healing;
to help family members know how to help their loved ones;
and to reduce the stigma related to mental illness.

It also has the purpose of sharing personal stories of
finding JOY through many different challenges.

  1. Looking forward to getting to know this blog better. I'm familiar enough with how depression can beat the bejeesus out of a person and drain life of joy.
