110: Self Care Through Depression: A Conversation With Victoria Mininger

"No one else can do this for you. Do you dare to fight?" -Victoria Mininger, Daring to Fight

Depression and anxiety are REALIFE struggles, but if you or a loved one are noticing signs of depression or are feeling shame in naming it, you're not alone and you don't have to stay stuck! 

This week on the podcast, I'm excited to reintroduce you to my friend, Victoria Mininger, who is also the author of the brand new book, Daring to Fight: When Grit, Grace & Faith Take Depression Head-On.

In this episode, Victoria shares about: 

  • Recognizing the symptoms of depression
  • Self-Care Tools to support you in taking healing steps 
  • Rhythms and routines to sustain your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health

If you're looking for practical resources to support you as you step into the ring with depression, don't miss Victoria's book and the FREE Self Care Resources she offers from her heart as one who's actively daring to fight every day!
