This blog is intended to be a light in the wilderness of the world—a light for anyone who feels lost, discouraged, depressed, or even suicidal.
My name is Seth Adam Smith. I’m a husband, a father, an author, and a blogger who frequently struggles with depression. Some time ago, I learned that the best way for me to fight my depression is to think of life as a journey—or a pilgrimage—through the wilderness of the world.
Light In the Wilderness
A pilgrimage is a journey with a spiritual purpose. Every life has a purpose—a good purpose. Even so, life is still a difficult and challenging journey. I believe it was designed that way. Life isn’t about comfort, it’s about progress.
But we can’t progress if there’s no light. Depression and suicidal thoughts are like darkness—they make it hard to see or feel hope.
We need more light in the wilderness of the world.
It is my hope that the content you find here will be a “light in the wilderness” for you; that these messages (blog posts, videos, podcasts, etc.) will inspire you and encourage you to move forward in faith.
