My book release is February 2020. My current book being published is my debut book. It is a Bible based self-help book. The Title is “Overcoming Depression Through His Word”. This book as stated in the title is about how to overcome depression. I am not claiming that I am an expert in mental health or even educated in said topic. This book is written from my own personal experience of overcoming depression and the research I have done to help myself.
Through the research of depression, symptoms and cures, as well as the scripture research in the Bible I gained the strength to overcome my own depression that I dealt with for many years. You will find my story in the beginning of the book to show how I know you are not alone in the struggle.
This book not only has Bible scripture but also a few medical and literary references. You don’t have to believe in the Bible to read this book and I am definitely not trying to negate any sort of medical or mental health treatment. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28. “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 “The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.” Psalms 34:17
This book was inspired by my pastor Matt Hudson. I do not mean inspired in the biblical sense as in God breathed. My pastor didn’t give me the words. He encouraged me to write it to help me with my own depression before he even was aware that I enjoyed writing and have been writing for many years. The dedication of this book has many to it, unlike most books that are dedicated to one or two people.
As I build my blog I desire to find ways to help my readers; my books are one way to help them as they are being written in such a manner of desiring to be helpful and loving to all, this book being my first book published is setting the precedence for just that.
If you have any questions on any particular part of life you would like advice on, just message me, and if I can I will help. If I cannot I will direct you to someone that might be able to help. I will not have all the answers to life and will never claim to be the wisest person there is. I sure am not the most educated person. Of course you must realize that sometimes, but not always, life experience is a better education than traditional classroom education.
All I have is life experience and stories of my own as well as those told to me. I try to learn from others but most of the time I learn the hard way, through my own selfish bad choices. As I wrote this book I had to decide what my author platform would be built upon and incorporate that into my book. My author platform is built upon the idea of helping people with life lessons. You can find more of that in my first blog post “Joining the race”.
As my book is in the publishing process I will put updates on my website and social media platforms. I am on Facebook in the page “VeteranWrites” and on Instagram under “martin_marquez_writes”. Of course you can find links on my homepage and my contacts page of my website.
All my books will be written with King James Version (KJV).
Please check out my book.
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.
