About Nancy and Always the Fight Ministries

005-n_virden_seminar_may_2016-1887-web_res-copy-2.jpgNancy Virden is the founder of Always the Fight Ministries (ATFM), Christian mental health advocacy. Since 2012, Nancy has reached out to the public-at-large via social media and sharing in-person or on radio/podcast shows. 

Compassion is expressed for those fighting mental illness, addiction, and abuse, and for their supports. 

The purposes of this advocacy are to inform the Church and the general public on meaningful ways to support loved ones who hurt, to draw a desperate population into a discovery of joy, and to openly discuss taboo topics.

ATFM also introduces a path to a new life that many have discarded. That is faith.
Hope is real; it can also be eternal.


The Always the Fight website offers an insightful semi-weekly blog, terrific resources pages, and links to past shows.

The Always the Fight Ministries Facebook page offers daily articles or insights along with the twice a week ATFM blogs. 

ATFM Recovery is a self-led 12-step study following the Life Recovery Bible and workbook. It is a public group on Facebook.

YouTube hosts the ministry’s channel under the name Nancy Virden. A series of 100 “I’m Glad You Are Alive” videos encourage anyone who may be considering suicide. Videos from the ATFM Recovery are also posted there along with playlists such as Hope is…; Depression is…; Suicide is…; and more.
