This book is dedicated to Julie, Hannah, and Sarah, who have stood by me since 1994 as I have struggled with the depression and anxiety associated with bipolar disorder. Their strength and patience is to be honored and not taken for granted. Thank you, girls, I love you!
My thanks go to Julie for her constant and unwavering belief in me and her support in writing this book. I especially appreciate her allowing me to use the cover photo, which is one of her many beautiful works of art. I also wish to thank Pastor Greg for asking me to share my testimony, which was the spark that I needed to set my pen in motion. A special thank you goes to my psychiatrist and friend, Dr. Mary Delduca, M.D. Your expertise and compassion have kept me sane and in good humor during my struggle with my illness. I don’t know how you do it! Thank you Matt, Mike, and Sue for your patient guidance and determination to bring me to the Lord. Thank you to the two Mikes. You know who you are! I give thanks for my Lord Jesus Christ for His love and protection.
