Into The Deep - Robert Rogers

Into The Deep is a true, inspirational story of hardships, pain and the healing that comes with hope. Robert Rogers and wife Melissa had a seemingly normal household. Four children kept them busy, and on their toes 24/7. The Rogers had a passionate love and zest for life that came with their determination to cherish every moment that came their way.

Little did Robert know however, that on August 30, 2003, the love of his life and his four wonderful children would be swept away by a flash flood as they were driving home from a wedding. Devastated, Robert faced the unexplainable pain of having to identify the drowned and lifeless bodies of his wife Melissa, and four young children.

Struggling through every day of remembering his deceased family, Robert made his way again through life, left with the single hope that God would somehow bring him through the void that his family left, and the memories of their lives.

Into The Deep reviews and follows the lives of Robert Rogers and his wife Melissa. It dictates the joys, pain, struggles and love that they each experience in their own lives, including excerpts from Melissa's diary to her children, the story of Robert and Melissa's engagement, and so much more.

Rogers has an incredible way of telling a story, drawing you into his life, and the lives of his family. He is uniquely able to help you identify with the tragedy of losing a family member, and also the joy of everyday pleasures. I love how with every chapter he seems to stress even more the importance of living a life of no regrets, and of valuing every moment that comes our way. Robert encourages his readers to live a life of no regrets so that we can in turn, experience the same freedom he did in knowing that he made the most of every moment he was given with his family. This book would fall under the category of my favorite books, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who desires to be inspired.
"When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot
Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul."
I believe that Robert Rogers through the pain of his experiences, truly learned the meaning of this hymn.


  1. Oh man Whitney you really make that book come alive in your review! I'm really looking forward to checking that out and reading it!

  2. I haven't read the book completely but almost 100 pages in and its hard to put the book down. Very easy read and its amzing how God has and continues to use his life as a walking testimony to Christ. I saw him in Charlotte last month and you can tell Christ is living in him. He is legit in his faith and an example for us all. I would recommend this book in a heartbeat.

  3. @Daniel - Hope you enjoy reading that book

    @Phil - I agree, Whitney got me to read the book about ten months ago and I couldn't put it down. I had to read the entire thing in one sitting!

    In Him,
