You're Not Finished: Using Stories of Survival to Save Lives
You're Not Finished: Using Stories of Survival to Save Lives is an 8-day devotional for anyone who needs inspiration and encouragement in the midst of mental distress and/or suicidal ideation. Through stories from the Bible, author and founder of You're Not Finished Brittany Franklin shares how the Word demonstrates God's love and comfort to His people as they have experienced extreme hardship and mental anguish.
Just as He comforted those who are highlighted in this devotional, He can and will do the same for you. Just as God was not finished with them, He is not finished with you.
Printed versions available on June 6th!

Brittany Franklin is a graduate of Azusa Pacific University and the founder of You're Not Finished® (YNF), a podcast, website, and organization that provides mental health support, encouragement, and resources. For more information, visit www.yourenotfinished.com.
You’re Not Finished® was created in 2012 to provide mental health resources and personal stories of hope, survival, and overcoming obstacles so that you can know that you are not alone… that you are not your problems… that your own personal story continues, and that you are not finished in this life. The stories you read on the site are true testimonies of people living with or overcoming mental health disorders and suicidal ideation. They are living proof that it does it better.
On March 30, 2021, the 1st episode of the YNF podcast was published! New episodes will be released monthly. Listen to the latest episodes of the cast on your favorite streaming platform here!
The Website & Podcast
There are several mental health/self-care websites and podcasts in the market that inspire and encourage people to better their mental health. However, many of these entities do not integrate the Christian faith, seek to address and remove stigma within Christian organizations, nor do they offer tangible and practical resources directly to marginalized and underserved individuals in need (regardless of religious affiliation, if any). Listeners do not have to subscribe to Christianity in order to benefit from the information and resources provided. Regardless of perceived and actual man-made stereotypes, limitations, and stigma, YNF seeks to encourage all who read the blogs and stories on the website as well as listen to podcasts via various streaming platforms.
You’re Not Finished® believes that one of the best ways to decrease and eventually end mental health stigma is to provide the opportunity for people to share their stories/testimonies. These stories often provide encouragement for those who read them, & help others realize they are not alone. If you want to share your story, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact through the site!
Anonymous submissions are welcome.
By offering chances to put mental health resources directly in the hands of consumers through quarterly giveaways, You’re Not Finished® seeks to empower individuals who do not have the ability or financial resources to obtain self-help publications or helpful tools that assist them with practically working towards an improved mental health state and overall quality of life. Domestic entries only for the time being. Ages 18+ eligible. Participants do not have to subscribe to the Christian faith to enter.
To stay up to date on giveaways, subscribe to the newsletter or follow on Instagram @ynfcast.
