Blue Tasks Resources

What are "Blue Tasks?"

At the end of each chapter of my book, Overcoming the Blues, I include “blue tasks” as an ongoing part of your journey towards healing from depression. It is my hope that you will complete a task before moving on to the next chapter. If you’re only able to do one, that is perfectly okay. Complete more tasks as you feel you are able. After you finish reading the book, the blue tasks will remain integral to your recovery process. Return to the blue tasks on a regular basis and continue to work on them consistently. The blue tasks should not be considered works of completion, but rather works in progress.

    Your book is a gift straight from heaven to me—and I’m only on page 6! Your gentle acceptance and understanding helped chase away my shame and confusion. Thank you for listening to God’s call to write this extremely helpful book. God bless you.

    I found an encouraging song: Let Go, by Mark Hammitt. I’ve struggled with shame over not being able to “do it all.” But we can let go of that crushing burden to get everything right. God will do what we cannot.
