Grief permeates our lives. Whether through personal loss or the dark places in a friend’s life, each broken place confronts us with faith questions. Though written by a bereaved mother, this book is for anyone struggling to find a new level of normal in the midst of traumatic loss. Each chapter is filled with scripture, Sharon’s journal entries after the death of her son, the story behind hymns and music that encouraged Sharon to trust God in the darkness, and questions that help the reader focus on the theme of the chapter.
Sharon encourages readers to journal their own journey to help them lean into the pain of their own lives – whether fresh or buried for years. The pages from her journals reveal her conversation with God as she tried to reconcile His sovereignty and His love. Her transparency and willingness to dig deep into her own sorrow in order to help others convinces the reader that God really is sovereign and can be trusted, no matter what life brings
Bonus: We will include Loss of a Loved One CD, an interview with Chuck and Sharon Betters.
