Written from the perspective of one grieving mommy to another, "Hope for Today, Promises for Tomorrow" is a ten-week study that will encourage and challenge women to delve into a deeper understanding of God's Word. As women engage in biblical teaching, they will learn to embrace God's promises of love, goodness, purpose, comfort, peace, refinement, restoration, hope, and eternity. "Hope for Today" verses peppered throughout each chapter, journaling cues, prayers, and the stories of other women who have experienced loss will help readers move from grieving in silent solitude to living life in the richness of God's love.
While other books suggest a one-size-fits-all method for grief management or focus on understanding specific causes of child loss, "Hope for Today, Promises for Tomorrow" offers comfort for the reader, whatever her situation, by helping her focus on the light of the ultimate Promise, the hope of a Savior, Jesus Christ.
ruthhill74Yelm, WAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Uplifting BookDecember 23, 2013ruthhill74Yelm, WAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5First let me say that this book covers a topic that I have never experienced, so I was not able to connect with the stories on a very personal level. But I have known women who have lost their babies or miscarried. My own mom is one of those. I have to admit that I never truly considered the emotions and issues that women experience because of a miscarriage. I will be brutally honest here. I sometimes figure that when a woman miscarries, the best way to deal with it is to get pregnant again. Then when she has a healthy baby, she can forget the child she lost, especially if it was within the first trimester. That sounds kind of horrible, I realize, but having never experienced a miscarriage myself, that was kind of my outlook. Multiple miscarriages and full-term pregnancies that ended in premature death--I can understand how that would involve grief.
What I can say is that this book showed me that whenever a mother loses a baby--no matter the circumstances--it is very difficult for her. She does go through a grieving process, and this book shows women in this situation how to do that in light of God's Word. It is real, and the author speaks from experience. I admit that my thinking was wrong, and I fully embrace the teaching of this book. I never disagreed once. I would definitely recommend this to any mother who has lost a baby--born or unborn. It would be perfect for a church support group or even for a woman to do on her own.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not financially compensated in any way, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5HopeAugust 21, 2012MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5I wish I had had this book many years ago. My daughter died 77 days after she was born. She never came home, and I have fleeting memories of what she looked like.
At the time it was hard to understand the why? She had a 2 year old sister, and you imagine how close they might have been. It was a very hard and difficult time in my life.
I would have loved to have this in the time I needed the healing. I did have the solace of her dying on Christmas, and becoming whole again with our Heavenly Father. I felt the Jesus had pity on her on his Birthday, and her suffering was over.
Teske Drake has presented this wonderful book in such a great way, and I will pass it on when the time is right. I know that at the time it helped me to talk about what happened, and 18 months later we brought home her brother. One child does not replace another, but it does help in the healing.
I thank God for his many mercies.
I received this book from Litfuse Blog Tours, and the Publisher Kregel, and was not required to give a positive review.
