When God & Grief Meet: True Stories of Comfort and Courage
This is a wonderful book full of personal experiences. Grief is something that all who loves someone will probably experience. This is a book of great comfort, filled with others' experiences and lots of scriptures. I would strongly recommend this to anyone traveling the journey of grief.

Lynn Eib, a cancer survivor and a pastor's wife, and a Cancer Support Group and Grief Support Group leader, has led many support groups helping people to deal with their grief, as they deal with cancer and the loss of their loved ones. Lynn has compiled many stories of how families who have lost their loved ones continue on and handle their grief. She combines these stories, with Bible verses interspersed through out the chapters.Fourteen chapters deal with the issues that grief brings us, some chapter titles include Feeling Your World Fall Apart, Preserving a Memory No One Can Steal, Surviving the Imperfect Storms, Throwing Rocks at God's Windows. These titles cover just a few of the chapters covered in this book. The end of the book closes out with a list of Grief books for adults, and kids, and also organizations, resources and websites you can turn to during your time of grieving.As a parent who recently lost a teenage son, this book was a true blessing with the many words of comfort, compassion and wisdom.

A few weeks ago when I found this book I knew I finally found something that I clicked with. I wanted to read something that would help me, due to the loss of our adult son two years ago. This book gave insight and understanding like I haven't found in any person I've talked to. The author gives examples through personal stories of what others have experienced at the death of a loved one, prepares you for what people will say to you and it is just a good book on grieving. I cried off and on, all the way through it and found it was very helpful. Thank you CBD for selling this book and thank you Lynn Eib for writing it! God Bless!

It helps those who have lost loved ones due to cancer, heart attacks, car accidents, plane crashes, suicide, and even murder. This book does show the grief people have gone through, but it also shows the wise insights and practical ideas for getting through it.I highly recommend this book as it will give comfort and courage to those that need it in a desperate time of trials.
