Wonderful Resource to Keep & Share

I strongly recommend this book. I purchased multiple copies of it in 2017 after the loss of three close family members in nine months. I kept one for myself and gave the others to family. It was so helpful for me, that I have since shared it with others. I recently shared it with a neighbor who lost her husband unexpectedly, and then, days later, her son-in-law. She and her daughter have been using the book for a couple of months and plan to purchase their own copies. My neighbor wrote me this note: "Wanda, can't thank you enough for sharing this book in a much needed time."

Compassionate, Crucial, Christ-centered

Written from a grace-filled pastor's heart, Michael Newman has penned an essential resource for embracing hope amidst grief. Hope dims when life's storms hit, but Michael skillfully uses Scripture to ignite the torch of healing. His beautiful insights into grief tell us he's been there. He wraps God's words of hope around the grieving like a toasty blanket on a frosty night. Compassionate, crucial, Christ-centered — and critically needed. I will absorb and share this brilliant resource for years to come.

Excellent resource

Many thanks for this helpful, Christ-centered resource! I highly recommend it!
