Beth Childress


My Story

I am a person who is fearfully and wonderfully made, and part of the wonder of me is my unique sensitivity and susceptibility for mental illness. I have wrestled with it for years, and it has held me captive as I have given into its grip. However, I now accept the unique parts of me that make me “quirky.” For since I have experienced degrees of deep depression, crippling anxiety, paranoia,
obsessiveness, and other symptoms (alongside irrational but real emotions that stem from heartache), I can share my experience with others.
Because I have hope, I offer you hope – and anyone you know who wrestles with mental illness – no matter how deep the quarry or how far the climb.
I am a public school teacher, but this is not how I define myself. I am one of those die-hard football fans that you meet in your worst nightmares.
I am one who has been rejected many times in many circumstances for many reasons. But I am not defined by my profession, my obsession or my painful experiences. Who I am goes much deeper than those.

Current Books Written

Beuaty in the Breakdown

This book, Beauty in the Breakdown, is about me — my own personal journey and discovery of my mental illness – its mysterious root causes, including but not limited to the spiritual, emotional, moral,
mental, physical and psychological.

A Grief Uncorked

For the most part, I had a happy childhood and, subsequently, for years, pushed away the reality of a significant loss, which took place when I was eighteen.
