Ten months ago I met the Happiest Girl in the World!
We’d been in the same online writer’s group for some time and within this group I always noticed her joy shining through the crowd of hundreds. Attracted to the light within her I began to follow her writings where she offers hope to the hurting. As a Neurophychologist Dr. Bengtson’s doctorly advice is amazing, but it was her joy-filled countenance, positive attitude, and sheer energy that struck me most about this new friend of mine.
Where did this contagious joy come from?
When Dr. Michelle and I finally met face-to-face at the Allume writer’s conference last Fall, and she asked me to be a part of her book launch team for Hope Prevails, I was ecstatic! She was, in my mind, one of the BIG ones! A writer of substance. A writer with authority. A writer with a long list of letters coming after her name to show that she was worthy of paying heed to.
And given the opportunity to read an advanced copy of her book I would have the chance to inspect the reason for her JOY.
I’m pleased to announce that TODAY is the formal release of Dr. Michelle’s new book, Hope Prevails! This book is unique in that it offers insight from Dr. Michelle’s personal journey through depression. I was stunned to learn that this joy-filled woman once lived without hope and in the depths of despair. In her desperation she tried using the same methods she’d given her patients to overcome depression only to find that they didn’t work. This is when she began addressing the spiritual side of depression. Dr. Michelle states that if we don’t address the spiritual side , We are just applying band aids and hoping our soul gets well #HopePrevails Click To Tweet
She also states emphatically that,
This is good, GOOD news!
This book is Dr. Bengtson’s life’s work. In it she shares how God can shine the brightest light in our darkest moments so that we are not alone. As Dr. B. says, My book, Hope Prevails, shows us that nothing we face is too big for God. #HopePrevails. Click To Tweet
This book is powerful and offers real HOPE. I wholeheartedly recommend Hope Prevails and cordially invite you to get a copy of Dr. Michelle Bengtson’s book today. If not for you, then for someone you love.
Expect to be blessed!
