Living in the Light is a beautiful look at what is and what might be.
Lacey takes a straight forward look at depression and then fearlessly goes through what it is and how to get past it.
In this troubled world, there are doubtless many souls who could relate to the feelings of doom, hopelessness and emptiness that so commonly are related to depression. This nonthreatening look at depression allows anyone experiencing symptoms, or anyone who knows someone who is, navigate their way to a brighter future.
For me, I found it something of a textbook for understanding. I shy away from psychology for the most part, maybe from my utter lack of knowledge on the subject, but I found this book approachable. Lacey does a great job of explaining without inundating the reader with long terms and doctor vocabulary. In fact, it made it so much easier for me to understand what it's like for those who suffer in this way.
It gave me a sense of compassion. A better understanding.
And for that, I am grateful to Lacey for writing such a thought-provoking book.
If you would like to meet Lacey West's blog or find her book at Amazon or Barnes and Noble, you won't be disappointed. This is a gorgeous gift for Christmas, or something you might want to pick up for yourself.
We could all use a little reminder to Live in the Light.
