Mike Ridenour

I'm a dad and a grandpa that loves God, my wife and family, fly fishing and coffee. I've had a life-long battle with depression and it has led me down a lot of paths (some pretty ugly ones). I once wrote a lot of horror and dark poetry but now, instead of trying to scare people out of their wits, I strive to encourage and share what has worked for me in learning to live a better life with depression and all the baggage that it carries.

I'm not preaching, I'm reaching. I strive to have some transparency that leads others, not to emulate me, but to continue to seek the hope that fills the vacuum of despair.
