Writing completes me.
I have created a 7-day devotional for overcoming depression. It was taken from my book, Depression: State of Mind. Contact me for the link.
In my spare time, I am working on several other books and will hopefully have something new soon. Sign up for my email list to stay updated.
My name is Jeanette Cole and I am married with two children, a son-in-law, and two fur babies. I’m a life-long resident of the Chattanooga, Tennessee area -- until 2019. My husband and I moved to the beach! We went from the mountains and lakes of Tennessee to the beach and palm trees of North Carolina. It’s our happy place and we love it!
I have struggled with depression most of my life. Nothing life life-changing happened to me to cause my negative mindset. I wasn’t abused or mistreated growing up. I am an extreme introvert and I think the anguish of trying to fit in with others became too much for me to handle. I lived in fear of everything. Thinking back, I believe people thought I was stuck-up and snobby because I was so painfully shy. That’s why people avoided me. I thought something was wrong with me, but it was just that nobody knew how to respond to my quiet, stand-offish behavior. I began to get bitter and negative about life.
The more we give in to that defeated mindset and attitude, the stronger the hold will become over us. I have come to believe that fear is the onset of most people’s depression. I gave into fear as a young child and it produced only negative consequences. Over the years, it became harder and harder for me to face my fears until I 'sank' deeper and deeper into a depressed and hopeless state. I got tired of feeling down all the time and decided to fight for my mind.
Since I have spent time researching the Bible and learning how to control my mind and my tongue, I am finally able to see my blessings. In the past, I would focus on the problems going on around me, instead of the problem solver… JESUS. Now, I speak good things into my life, and I think good thoughts about my life. Things do start changing when we change our actions. I'm at war with the devil. Will you be a warrior with me and join the army of God? Let's be the church! Fight alongside me and let's whip the devil's butt!
Don’t ever think that human trafficking is not a big deal! This was expected to be the number one crime in the US in 2012. At that time, human trafficking was estimated at being a $40 billion per year industry.
There is a high demand for these innocent girls from perverts that have been given over to their reprobate minds. As long as there is a demand, there will always be suppliers. The money is too tempting, and human life is increasingly becoming too insignificant, for these greedy monsters. They refuse to even attempt to take a second glance at the harm they are causing and the lives they are destroying. Ninety-nine percent of these victims die instead of being rescued. They are abused to death.
I am on a mission to help stop this modern-day slavery. When I began researching this widely unknown crime, I found that there are no real laws to protect the innocent. They are treated like criminals because of the abuse they were forced to endure! This is unacceptable! This is so sad! Do people think that young girls and teenagers want to end up in this type of bondage? I’m here to say NO! NO MORE! It must end!
