When do you learn that "normal" doesn't include lots of yelling, lots of sleeping, lots of beating? In Blessed Are the Crazy: Breaking the Silence about Mental Illness, Family, and Church, Sarah Griffith Lund looks back at her father's battle with bipolar disorder, and the helpless sense of d? j? vu as her brother and cousin endure mental illness, as well. With a small group study guide and "Ten Steps for Developing a Mental Health Ministry in Your Congregation," Blessed Are the Crazy is more than memoir-it's a resource for churches and other faith- based groups to provide healing and comfort. Part of The Young Clergy Women Project.

Sarah Griffith Lund has served churches in Brooklyn, New York, Minneapolis, Minnesota and New Smyrna Beach, Florida and is a Regional Minister for the United Church of Christ in Florida. Sarah is a graduate of Trinity University, Princeton Theological Seminary, Rutgers University and McCormick Theological Seminary. She blogs at www.sarahgriffithlund.com.
