Best Spirituality Book for Depression: What I Learned from Jane by Mollie Player
What I Learned from Jane isn’t an easy read. It’s the story of losing my daughter, Jane. It’s also about what her death taught me, namely, how to be spiritual without being religious.
Can this book help me overcome depression?
I don’t know. If you’ve ever experienced the loss of a loved one, or are experiencing loss now, you may find some comfort here.
Does it address depression specifically? What does it say that can help?
It doesn’t discuss depression, but does discuss the sister-topic of loss.
Here is an excerpt:
“And I have no other explanation for how it feels to have given birth to a person and then spent a few days with them before letting them go other than that: It feels like being a mother probably feels every day.
It felt like being a mother.”
To what degree do you think it can help me overcome depression?
Since I’m biased here, I’ll skip the rating.
Where can I find it?
