This book is important for anyone, even adults and seniors, who may feel like the rest of the world is moving along without them. No matter what the cause of these feelings, the answer to them is God's love living in the heart.
"My wish is for everyone who feels lonely or isolated to realize that their Best Friend, best listener and best guide always stands beside them and wants them to be happy," states the author. "Depression is a major issue in our society. It is often a side effect of loss, especially the loss of self-worth." Smyth points out that losing one's self worth severs his or her connection to others and the meaning of life. This book presents the very relevant truth that God's love is forever - He loves His children regardless of their condition and in any situation, good or bad.
With this her latest book, Smyth will reach any reader with the truth that one's true worth cannot be measured by any outside factor, but can only be found within. She wants to set her readers free from the paralyzing effects that depression can have. She hopes to reach teenagers specifically, who may feel that life is not worth living. Smyth is married and lives with her husband in Connecticut. She completed a Master's degree in Theological Studies at Yale University, a Master's degree in Religious Studies at Sacred Heart University and her Bachelor's degree as an Art major at Elmira College.
