Until now, we've had this exclusive interview that Pastor Brad had done with Naomi Judd just prior to the pandemic lockdown in 2020.  We had yet to release the interview in the anticipation that we would be having Naomi speak at a Night of Inspiring Hope in the near future and would release the interview at that time.  However, due to Naomi's death we have decided to release the interview. We do so, not to capitalize on this tragic event, but rather to honor her and the struggle she had with depression and anxeity.  We are hopeful that this interview with both honor and remind us all that mental health challenges are very real and affect us all.  

If you or someone you know is suicidal please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 800-273-8255. Help and hope is available.

If you struggle with a mental health challenge  or love someone who does please consider attending a Fresh Hope support group meeting in person or online.
