Anxiety….Depression…..The mere words can take one’s breath away or quicken one’s pulse. These terms have the power to trigger such visceral responses because contemplating their existence can be extremely painful. Admitting that you struggle with anxiety and/or depression takes a lot of courage. Therefore, we want to warmly welcome you here. 

Our hearts break that you are struggling with anxiety and/or depression, but we are grateful that you are contemplating being a part of this community of support and encouragement. Anxiety and depression can be crippling, and we don’t want you to suffer in isolation. 

We believe God especially blesses our efforts to come alongside one another and “bear each other’s burdens (Gal. 6:2), and we would consider it a privilege to listen to you and walk beside you. 

Anxiety and depression can leave you feeling hopeless, and our desire is to point you to the hope we’ve personally found in Jesus Christ. In addition, we want to help you stand upon the promises of hope found in God’s Word. The Lord pledges to be a trustworthy and reliable Shepherd as you walk through your darkness (Is. 50:10).


Rachel McRee is the wife of David McRee and mother to Amy, Kate, and Luke. Rachel struggled with anxiety off/on from the age of 10. At the age of 22, this battle culminated in a two year struggle with depression after the occurrence of multiple, significant life events. A few years later, following the birth of her first child, she recognized she was heading down a similar path to depression and sought help from a Christian counselor who positively altered the course of her life. God met her in the darkness and faithfully walked with her on a path to healing. Since then, God has brought countless people of all ages (ages 5-90) into her life for her to share the hope, encouragement, and wisdom that only God can give. She has witnessed the beauty of God’s faithfulness to help so many get THROUGH the darkness and on the path to healing also.

Lee Polk is a wife to Dean and a mother to Gabriel, Parker, Jude, and Presley. Lee began chronically struggling with anxiety following the birth of their first child. After years of anxiousness, she fell into an extremely difficult season of darkness and depression that lasted two years. God was ever present during that time, and He faithfully provided streams in her desert (Is. 43:19). He continues to beautifully redeem that period of depression and has been faithful to leverage it for her good and His glory. 

Rachel and Lee have personally experienced the faithfulness of God and the hope found in Christ as He shepherded them through the darkness. They would count it an honor to offer that same hope and encouragement to you.
