I’m SO glad to see that Maxhas parents who understand the value of engagng him with life and who choose to have an ultimately positive outlook towards his future. They may very well be the deciding factor in his management of this horrible disease, and it appears that they’re both wellaware of that fact.. My prayers and blessings will go out to this family and young Max as long as I maintain my prayer journal, as I’ve entered them on my “list” It would sure be nice to be able to see a follow-up video down the road (Are you listening, Newsweek?) This is one of those nights I’m wrestling with G-d. How can a loving Father allow a CHILD to be so afflicted at eight that he seriously contemplates death as a preferable alternative to life?

One of my mom’s best pieces of advice: “Hang with the winners.” This holds true in support groups (stick with the people who have the most sobriety), in college (find the peeps with good study habits), and in your workplace (stay away from the drama queen at the water cooler). Why? Because we

Can I Say I’m a Son or Daughter of Christ and Suffer From Depression?
In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, we read: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” What if we aren’t glad, we aren’t capable of rejoicing, and even prayer is difficult? What if, instead, everything looks dark,
