Carving Hope Out of DepressionSelf-Help, Spiritual Growth



These feelings are often unspoken, yet scream in the hearts and minds of millions.

Carving Hope Out of Depression is a personal account of how depression can push an individual toward suicide. Not for pity or to offer excuses, author David Harder shares his raw, real-life experiences to bring hope to other broken hearts and minds. The act of suicide produces a terrible and mysterious abyss in the lives of families, friends, associates, and even casual acquaintances. No one can make sense of the loss. For the rest of their lives, they carry in their hearts the black hole that suicide leaves behind.

Thinking suicide was his only answer, David sought reasons to end his pain and justify his death. Misguided, he had equated death with no more pain but found nothing could be further from the truth.
