Have you ever felt lost and confused with no direction? Have you felt like giving up, because going on would be too hard?
You’re not alone; so many people have experienced these struggles. Finding Light in the Darkness offers a collection of poetry and journal entries covering five years of a young woman’s life as she faced these difficult times. Diagnosed with clinical depression, author Jenna Bernard quickly lost herself in a cloud of confusion, fear, and anger. She stepped into a whirlwind of substance abuse to cope with the obstacles in her life she was not prepared to handle.
By finding faith in God, however, she was able to ultimately find faith in herself. Her poems emerged from a very deep place within her soul—a child desperate for someone to hear her voice. Inspired to compile her poetry into a collection after entering outpatient treatment in February of 2007, Bernard hopes that her response to her hardships will give strength and hope to others who are struggling. She offers living proof that circumstances can change, miracles do happen, and life does get better.
