On February 9th Beth and I interviewed Ally Johnson who passionately shared her journey of finding hope and purpose in the midst of crisis. Ally’s goal is to help us enlarge our vision of the trials, victories, and personal growth that can accompany mental illness—specifically bipolar mood disorder and depression. I implore you to listen to Ally’s interview. You will surely be blessed.

Thank you, Ally and Grant, for your willingness to share your story with the world! I’m confident many, many lives will be touched.

Allison’s Coaching Suggestions

Five Things to Do in a Crisis

1. Do normal things:  Try to keep your routine as much as possible.  Having a sense of normalcy helps you keep your focus in spite of the difficult circumstance.

2. Ask for help:  If you need help, don’t hesitate to seek it. Think of three people right now you could call.  Having them “at the ready” will help you feel more at peace.

3. Create a support network:  The biggest mistake I made was I didn’t share with anyone outside of my immediate family and my two closest friends what it was we were going through. It’s true there is strength in numbers.  Ask God to show you whom you can count on and then tell them exactly what you need and when you need it.

4. Talk to God:  Remember that God is with you, and whatever the circumstance may be, He is willing and ready to hear you.  You can cry out to Him, revealing your true heart.  He’s big enough to carry all of it…you just have to let Him.

5. Create a Scripture Support List:  In the midst of our season of challenge there was a list of Scriptures I referred to that helped me when I couldn’t make sense of my circumstances.  My favorite was John 8:12:  “I am the Light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
