12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

Lifeworks Group
Our counselors are not in the business of quietly sitting as a passive listening ear, rather we are in the business of helping our clients take positive action to live and feel better about their lives. Yes, we provide a confidential and safe place to sort through the stressful situations you may be facing, but always with the goal of moving forward to change and reach your potential.

Saddleback Church
Saddleback Church serves the Southern California community through more than 200 ministries, eight worship venues, a variety of counseling and support programs, Bible studies and seminars, local and global outreach programs, and a broad network of small groups meeting in local homes. Its purpose is to lead people to Jesus and membership in his family, teach them to worship the Lord and magnify his name, develop them to Christlike maturity, and equip them for ministry in the church and a mission in the world.

Bibles for India
Our partners are part of the communities they serve. They often live at the same level of poverty. They know the needs, and they know what works and what doesn’t. And through them, we have been hard at work transforming those communities. Digging wells. Providing micro-enterprise loans. Shipping medicine. Running schools. All with one goal in mind—seeing entire communities transformed by God’s grace.

Compassion International

Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training. Today, Compassion helps more than 1.2 million children in 26 countries.

Youth with a Mission

Youth With A Mission is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced "WHY-wham"), our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known.

In my opinion, the best natural supplement to treat the symptoms of depression is NOW brand of 5HTP. If you are looking for a natural way to deal with depression, click on this amazon link, go to Natural & Organic and type in NOW 5HTP. I have tried other brands and NOW seems to mitigate the symptoms of depression better. It helps to  enhance mood without unwanted side effects that can be present in SSRIs prescribed to treat depression.
