On this episode of This vs. That, we are joined by our friend Christine Chappell. We have a heartfelt conversation with Christine about the important topic of sadness versus depression. Together, we explore how to discern the difference between ordinary experiences of sadness and the overwhelming darkness of depression.

Christine shares her personal journey of being treated for bipolar disorder, depression, panic attacks, and suicidal ideations, and how these experiences have fueled her ministry work to provide help and hope to others.

We discuss the significance of understanding the distinction between sadness and depression and the importance of meeting individuals where they are in their struggles. Throughout the conversation, we emphasize the need for genuine empathy, patience, and a willingness to enter into the pain of others.

Christine's upcoming book, Midnight Mercies, offers a powerful resource for those struggling with depression. Join us as we shed light on this challenging topic and bring hope to the midst of overwhelming darkness.


At Anchored Hope, we're committed to excellence. We believe that compassionate, biblically grounded, clinically informed counseling shouldn't be hard to find. That's why we are also committed to affordability and accessibility. To do this as a nonprofit, however, requires us to lock arms with people who care about the mental, emotional, and spiritual crisis happening all around us.

While our funds go to people in need of counseling and to support the growing ministry of Anchored Hope, we have two specific financial needs. One is to serve ministry leaders in a foreign country that are caring and doing outreach to trafficked victims. The other need is a request to help and financing counseling for military families across the nation.
