This book tells the story of my ongoing struggle with depression and suicidal ideation, in tension with the faith that keeps me going.

Readers have said:

If you know someone with depression and want to understand what is going on in their head — and find hope for their future — this book is a fantastic place to start.

Upon finishing the book, I was brought to tears. What Michael shared was so powerful and moving. Through sharing his struggles and most intimate moments, he gives the reader a great, rare gift.

Darkwater is an honest, raw memoir of Michael’s experience with depression. I found it to be a strange combination of being both an easy and difficult story to read. Easy in that the book demands your attention and holds you in. Difficult in that Michael provides such a clear window into his experiences that it is truly heart-breaking.

De-stigmatizing mental illness is so very important – now more than ever – and the way that this was modeled thought out the book was inspiring. This memoir provides insight into the lived experience of depression which will benefit helping professionals, both secular and faith-based alike.

Darkwater is not merely a must read, but a existential voyage into healing.
