Almost 15 years ago I started to write an essay titled “Why I Decided Not to Kill Myself.” It was a time, after my second divorce, that I began to be haunted with thoughts about committing suicide. After setting out my experiences on paper, it occurred to me that others might be going through the same thing I was.
Therefore, I sent out, via email, an invitation to others to send me a short piece about their struggles. And some came in.
Now, taking up where I left off those years ago, my wife Katie and I have pretty much finished what we call a booklet with that very title. And then we thought we would send out an invitation to others to send us a short description of their struggles with thoughts of ending their lives.
This booklet is Christian oriented because it was my relationship with Jesus that kept me alive.
If you would like to send in a short account of your own struggles, we welcome it, and you would not have to include your name. Send it to email@example.com. Kent and Katie Philpott
