In this edition of Fresh Hope for Mental Health, Pastor Brad interviews Jason Petersen an avid video blogger who has bipolar disorder and blogs about it. Jason talks about how he began to tell his story of recovery from bipolar disorder through blogging which was healing for him and gave him a sense of freedom. Truth is, that every time you share your story with someone, it empowers both you and the one hearing it!
You’ll hear many insights than just the power of telling your story as Brad and Jason talk together. Jason is an Christian son, husband and father. He owns his own business in Lincoln, Nebraska and runs marathons; which is one of his passions. To read more about Jason and listen to his video blog go to: www.JasonPetersen.com
