Format: Paperback
A book about this topic has been desperately needed for such a long time, particularly as tragedies stemming from various postpartum mood disorders pervade the media more and more each day. Sue tells the story of her journey through postpartum depression by interweaving it with the voice of wisdom, the voice of knowledge, the voice of encouragement and the voice of God through His Word. That is one of the most inspiring and true aspects of this book. Sue shares so much Scripture that clearly tells us exactly where God is when we hurt - always by our sides and often carrying us.

What I often consider a sign of a great book such as this is the ability to apply the wisdom to any number of life circumstances. For example, reading a book about infertility and loss (Hannah's Hope by Jennifer Saake) after already giving birth to my son taught me so much about the journey I was now on, despite the fact that my infertile days had come to a close. The same can be said of Sue's book. I learned so much that can be so applicable to any dark valley that one may go through. Lean on Scripture and hold on with all your strength, even if by your very fingertips. I also learned much about friendships with Sue, again crying as I recalled how Christ worked through the many types of friends as He carried me through my depression. Sue is also always quick to remind the reader of the resulting growth that comes from walking through a dark valley such as postpartum depression.

I was greatly encouraged by this book and inspired by Sue's story and I highly recommend this book. It is a story of encouragement and most of all, a story of hope. There is always hope.

I am a firm believer that you can never fully understand something unless you've lived through it. After reading this book, however, I feel like I understand PPD as much as I possibly can - having never suffered through it. I can't imagine anyone being more honest or open about their experience that Sue. My first thought after reading it was: There are so many people who need to read this so they know they're not alone. What amazing courage it takes to write the way she did! Thank you, Sue, for writing a book that could save lives.

Format: Paperback
Once I got into Sue's book, I had it read in a flash. She manages to get you completely caught up in the middle of her experience so you don't even realize you're being educated at the same time. Having never had children of my own yet, her experience helped me to be aware of things to watch for and to be sensitive to what others may be going through. As far as the spiritual aspect of the book, I didn't really think it would apply to me since I hadn't experienced PPD, but I appreciated her down-to-earth advice about how prayer and scripture made a huge difference in her life and how it's different than the legalistic "reading your Bible and praying because you're supposed to" that many of us are familiar with in our lives and churches today. It's given me hope that I can truly get to "know" God through prayer and Bible-reading. . .rather than just learning more about him. Thanks Sue!

Format: Paperback
This book was so easy to read. I felt like the author was relaying her story right to me, so I didn't want to put it down! I have never suffered from post partum myself, but I now have a better understanding for what a woman who is, could be going through. It seems like it would be a great resource and encouragement for a woman who was struggling with this! The Lifter of My Head gave me a better understanding and appreciation for anyone suffering from various kinds of depression. I am so glad I read this book, and would highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback
I really appreciated this book. I read it in less than 24 hours! I suffered from Postpartum anxiety and depression after the birth of both my girls but much more seriously after my second. It's such an important topic for people to be made aware of. Sue did such a great job of explaining what she went through and what was helpful and clearly what was not helpful. No matter who you are or what phase of life you are in there is a lot of valuable information to be gleaned from this book.

Format: Paperback
The Lifter of My Head is the moving story of one young mother's walk through the murky waters of Post Partum Depression. In her book, Sue offers a candid and invaluable look at an illness many young mothers are ill-equipped to diagnose and handle. Through sharing vital medical information on PPD and her own spiritual journey and healing, the book will be a lifesaver for countless women. I wish I had had this resource years ago when a dear family member struggled with PPD.
