A refreshingly honest and witty exploration of one woman’s journey through depression.

For many, depression is associated with shame and humiliation—even a lack of faith. But Laughing in the Dark is like getting genuine advice from a kind friend. And in her words you’ll find hope and renewed confidence that will guide you through your own darkness and into the light.

- If you are currently suffering from depression—this book will help you realize you’re not alone.
- If you have a loved one dealing with depression—this book will help you understand.
- If you are a mental health professional—you now have a new tool to encourage your clients.

Along with the humor, Chonda Pierce shares practical insight, biblical teaching, emotional support, and sympathetic concern. Whether you’ve experienced depression in your own life or in the life of someone you love, this friend has something to offer you: help, hope and, believe it or not, plenty of laughter.
