“Stress is a given, stressing is an option”
- Chaplain Jared Vineyard, US Army.
Depression is something that most people experience at one point or another. During this time of life, life can be hard to live. Some people attempt to hide it from others; while others have trouble coping with life situations, and have trouble with everyday tasks such as personal self-care. This book will show how the author had gone through depression for many years, and teaches how he allowed his faith in God to conquer that depression in his own life. These teachings are meant to help others overcome their own depression while letting them know they are not alone in their struggle.
"Depression of one of the paths we will travel when we don’t put our complete trust in Jesus Christ. Life is hard and we can’t make it on our own strength, depression is an example of a path we can take when life overwhelms us.
Martin has explained a path, a way of escape that we all need. The only way is God’s way and he explains his journey on this path in his book. Whether you are a veteran or not the path is the same to peace. Until you have peace with God, through his son Jesus, you will not have peace. You will be a victim choose Christ not victim hood. Press on Martin!"

"Mental illness is the invisible wound that many people struggle with daily. Whether you have suffered from a single traumatic event or many small events over an extended period of time there is nothing wrong with seeking help. If you had a broken rib you would go to the doctor, if you had a sore knee you would see a physical therapist and if you had a toothache you would see the dentist. Seeing help for mental health is no different. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness but a sign of wanting to be stronger. The principles in this book are a great start to working on your mental health."

"I am pleased to recommend this book on 'Overcoming Depression Through His Word'. Depression is an epidemic problem in the world today. Millions of people are daily struggling to find meaning in life and hope for each new day. Depression can often bring on serious health issues, and even lead to thoughts of suicide. Being depressed often feels like carrying a heavy burden, without any hope of relief in sight. To lighten life’s burdens, many try alcohol, drugs, sex, entertainment, and even various forms of “religion”, but it only seems to get worse. In this book, Martin shares from his own personal experiences how the Word of God is helping him to be an overcomer. God’s Word changes lives! The eternal Truths in the Bible can give hope and meaning to anyone’s life! We were created for a reason, and God’s Word shows us the true purpose of life. Jesus Christ died for our sins to give us eternal life, and by putting our faith in Him, we can receive the gift of salvation. I am glad to know that the Word of God heals and comfort those who are struggling with Depression. May the Lord bless you as you read this book."

Author, Martin A. Marquez, Jr. is an upcoming writer, endeavoring to help people of all ages through godly, biblical principles. This is Mr. Marquez’s first book, “Overcoming Depression Through His Word”. In this book, the author shares a bit of his personal story & struggle, the things he learned during that long season in life, and how he overcame. The world has many “tools” to deal with depression, but until a person gets truly born again and to put on the Lord Jesus Christ as the Bible tells us, one cannot fully overcome the many struggles in life. Mr Marquez’s second title is, “Mark and His Fibbing”, a first in a series to help young children know the right things to do. I own both books, and have given both as gifts to loved ones.
