LDP Meets: Stephanie Mitchell Hughes

Mar 25, 2022

Stephanie Mitchell Hughes shares her experience with depression, suicidal thoughts and her journey toward healing.

“In life we do not leap from one mountaintop experience to the next. Each of us will have valley experiences. Valley experiences are often painful. Facing your truth of who you are is painful. However, despite the pain, many valuable lessons can be learned while down there. If we do not learn those lessons, our valley experience will likely repeat until we finally get it. We will not get a pass. We must resolve to walk through the valley, embrace our brokenness, surrender, stop rehearsing the pain and realize the possibilities inherent within the experience.” – Stephanie Mitchell Hughes
