BERNADETTE STANKARD and her husband, Ed, have been married for forty years, half of which was spent dealing with Edâ€™s depression. Through his perseverance and their commitment as a couple, they have grown into good health together, realizing the gift of life they share which could have been lost. Bernadette is the author of several books and gives presentations on creativity, multiple intelligences, and living with depression. AMY VIETS knows firsthand what it means to live with depression: she and her husband, Bruce, struggled through twelve years of marital, emotional, and financial strain as they searched for an effective combination of therapy and medication. Now, with Bruceâ€™s return to health and the rebuilding of their relationship, she is helping others survive the darkness of depression in their spouses. A former elementary school teacher, Amy is now the Director of Childrenâ€™s Ministry for a large Lutheran congregation in Overland Park, Kansas. Her articles and essays have appeared in a number of religious and parenting publications.
