This new 10 week class Overcoming Anxiety and Depression
will begin Wednesday September 11, 9:30 A.M.
at Westview Baptist Church, 3676 Joyce Ave.

An introduction from Jacqueline Stokes, your instructor:

In the spring of 1977, I had two events collide. I was diagnosed with manic-depression, now called bi-polar disorder and I had a supernatural encounter with Jesus after crying out, “If You are real, I need You and I need You now.”

In the next 30 years I experienced frequent episodes, resulting in lengthy hospitalizations and eroding any sense of stability in my family.

And at the same time, I learned that there was no place I could go where Jesus wasn’t with me, loving me, speaking truth to me and showing me the way to the life He longed to give me.

His love cultivated in me the desire to get well and teach others what I had learned in my journey with God out of mental illness.

To this end I started the 10 – week class on “Overcoming Anxiety and Depression”.  The next class begins Wednesday September 11th 9:30 to 11:00 at the Westview Baptist Church.  If there are enough requests for an evening class, I will arrange for that.  If you have any questions please contact me at jacquelinestokes1977@gmail.com
