Friends, I love to share; that’s what I do best…and that’s why I wanted to host this giveaway.
The giveaway includes three excellent books written by some friends that have encouraged me on my grief journey.
Lisa Appelo, author of LIFE CAN BE GOOD AGAIN, PUTTING YOUR WORLD BACK TOGETHER AFTER IT ALL FALLS APART, writes about the raw emotions and uncertainty that come when everything falls apart. “Lisa went to bed, married, and woke up a widow and single mom to seven children. Lisa guides us in tender, intentional steps, and you’ll see that you will survive this and that life can be good again.”
Clarissa Moll, author of BEYOND THE DARKNESS, A GENTLE GUIDE FOR LIVING WITH GRIEF & THRIVING AFTER LOSS, is a widow whose husband died suddenly on a hiking trip. At the campsite, along with their four children, Clarissa hears the words no wife wants to hear, “he fell to his death.” Clarissa includes stories of loss and grief (including mine) in this honest, practical narrative. “Whether you’ve lost someone dear to you or you’re supporting a loved one as they mourn, you can learn to walk with grief. And as you do, you might be surprised to discover the path is wide enough for another companion, the Good Shepherd of your soul. Grief may walk with us for the rest of our lives, but Jesus will too.”
The third book in this giveaway is Suzanne Eller’s PRAYER STARTERS, TALKING WITH GOD ABOUT HARD TIMES. “In hard times, many of us shy away from God, not sure how to talk to him about what we’re feeling. Through her own battles, Suzie Eller has experienced the peace of knowing that prayer is not about the number of words that come out of your mouth or how eloquent you sound. It’s about being in God’s presence.”
Prayer is the thread woven throughout these women’s and my life as we journey through grief. You will hear more of my grief and caregiver’s journey during the coming months, but please, always remember, God, the source of all our hope, is just a whisper away.
Update: The giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner- Marsanne Petty!
