7 Things to Do to Fight Suicide! Thanks to our friends at Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, this training is available online any time you want!

Valley of the Shadow by Elizabeth and Erin Stone

Mother and daughter co-authors take on this relevant and difficult topic of suicide, giving a deeply personal testimony about Erin’s attempted suicide in 2007 by over-the-counter overdose. Not only do they share their darkest days, but also their journey back to normalcy. They take on the hard questions: What does the Bible say about suicide? How should the Church respond to a suicide attempt? A suicide completion? How can faith communities raise awareness and prevent this terrible killer? What extra help comes to believers through faith in Christ? How do we move on from the dark place of suicide to renewed life? As you journey through its pages, you will find hope in sharing their compelling story.

Simply Fitt with Sandra White

We volunteer and advocate for suicide prevention, for awareness, for recovery and healing because in 2007 this became part of our story, when Erin attempted suicide at seventeen. Our journey was not exactly smooth, but we found out two crucial things in the process: suicide is not rare and is on the rise; and the church has not been prepared to cope with this epidemic. Silence and inaction only lend more power to this terrible killer. Valley of the Shadow, was written to break the silence about a subject that has too long been taboo in religious communities, to start the conversations that lead to healing. In Out of the Darkness walks with AFSP, Veteran walks, setting up tables at local events, participating in legislative days at state capitols, & prayer vigils, we share our call to action for the church and culture.
