Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Thirty years ago, I collapsed with a post partum depression after our fifth child. There were no easy answers. And…there were no antidepressants so I asked God if He would be my Great Psychiatrist. He has gently taught me wonderful truths for living a happy life which I share with you in "Humpty".

I write first as a patient, secondly, as a Bible student and teacher, and lastly as a nurse who has been a Hospice Nursing Co-ordinator. I am unaware of any book on the market today that attacks depression from a holistic perspective. I do not think you can get well without working on all three areas of life: spirit, mind, and body. Thus…"Humpty."

As a patient, I know that there were times when I couldn't concentrate. It was as though a fog settled on the shoreline of my mind. I have written "Humpty" using stories from my family and many friends. These stories are real and easy to read.

My goal is to extend hope to anyone living a difficult life for whatever reason. 20,000,000 people are known to have depression. We are not all mentally ill; many of us are experiencing changes in our lives. We need time, friends, and a little help to switch the gears of life from wife to widow, employed to unemployed, freedom to 24 hour caregiver.

About the Author

Sylvia Burke is a 64-year-old wife of 40+ years and mother of Julie, Jeff, Jodie, Janie, Jon and Jennifer and grandmother of Matthew, Lindsay, and Natalie.

She and her husband George are retired in the Phoenix area but lived in the Midwest in IN, MI, and IL most of their lives.

Sylvia belongs to the Fountain Hills Christian Writers, is a watercolor artist and quiltmaker. She also enjoys daily walks with her golden retriever--Molly, water aerobics, and photography.

Her B.S. in Nursing (Indiana University '60) and experience working as a Hospice Nursing Coordinator give her a unique perspective to combine with her love of the Bible and belief that its counsel is alive for today. She states 2Corinthians Ch. 1 verses, 3, and 4 tell us "to comfort those who like us are hurting with the comfort we have received from God." Therein lies the purpose of "Humpty."

As a person who has fought depression, she believes people need practical "to do's" they can put in their lives. Her faith in God as the Great Psychiatrist offers a unique approach to depression.

This book can be appreciated by anyone who is "falling apart"...whether it be from the stress of work, illness, or any loss from death.
My group of widow friends like to use it for discussion groups to help us face our new reality, to respond to the depression, and to learn to reconnect to God, to self and to others.We found it offered a "spiritual prescription" to take daily as we begin a new journey.This treasure-trove gives hope that the sun will break through the clouds and a rainbow promises new life.

This sweet book, this helpful book, this realistic book, this book that has so many answers.....Christian help for depression, yes, but it also gives us a lot of hope, a way out of so many tough spots, a way to look at ourselves that can help in so many ways. Give it to a friend who's going through a bad patch, who needs healing after 9/11, who just needs to look at himself and God and see that the connection is always there. Ms. Burke writes from experience, and shows that is it, indeed, a wonderful teacher.
