Quotations from Church Members:

On depression: I struggle with depression. It got so bad that I had to go on Prozac. I talked to Pastor. I talked to my doctor. And it was either that or I would have had a breakdown. And I went on it. But I didn't like it. I didn't want to become addicted to it. So I weaned myself from it. I still struggle with [depression], but I don't use medication. I use prayer. And it's hard because I can easily think back and feel 'what do I have to live for?' Then I look at my son. I look at my granddaughter. And I look at myself. God left me here to do something, and I'm gonna do it. I just-I don't know what it is. Maybe He hasn't revealed it to me. Maybe I'm already doing it. I don't know. But He left me here for a reason and I'm gonna serve Him. -Sister M.P., 45 years old
