I deeply appreciate Marchenko’s hard-won wisdom and the resulting insight she has. As the church, we could learn much from her and other children of God who battle mental illnesses. My hope is that we will put Marchenko’s advice into action and be more compassionate toward those who suffer depression. Still Life is an up-close and personal resource that shows the extent of depression’s grip on a life and a go-to resource for anyone struggling with depression or someone who is affected by depression.
