Are there any books that you read when you are down in the dumps? I'm feeling a little bit blue and realizing that I need to work on some Trust issues with my Heavenly Father.

What I should read when I'm blue or restless: the Psalms, especially Psalm 139.

What I actually read: a book I really enjoyed. Since I don't have many here in New Brunswick (my collection is stored at my mum's house in BC) I tend to turn to L.M. Montgomery's "Kilmeny of the Orchard." And now we own a Harry Potter book - that series is my escape from reality...

Others I don't have on hand but love: L.M. Montgomery's "Blue Castle," any of the Chronicles of Narnia (I recently read "The Last Battle"), and Janette Oke's Women of the West series.

Many hugs and good wishes,

Becca :)

I'm like Becca - I tend to pick something I enjoyed when I was younger. This weekend I was really sick with a stomach bug - not fun when also six months pregnant! I read the Blue Sword by Robin Mckinley which I had first read in junior high. It was wonderful and I feel better now both mentally and physically.

Stacey - if you are down still it could be the pregnancy. I am always more depressed before the baby comes than after. I've never heard anyone else mention it but it is like pre- partum depression. After the baby I am weepy and emotional but it is in a happy kind of way. Before hand for months I am cranky and depressed. Hope you are feeling better!

Hey Cynthia! Thanks for the encouragement. I do worry that I'll get post partum. As if I didn't have enough on my mind these days. I guess we are just about the same pregnant? When is your due date? Mine is February 15th, which I've just only realized is 5 years to the day that we opened the office! How weird huh?


I'll try reading Psalms and some old favorites. Thanks for the suggestions.

Hi Stacey, yes we are both about six months. I am due Feb. 11th. I am in the process of deciding between a VBAC and another cesearean. Next Friday I have my glucose tolerance test. I imagine you are also having yours soon. Hope it goes well
