Publisher's Description

Used for years by individuals, grief counselors, and support groups, Roses in December has helped readers understand the grieving process, support family members, give insight into sibling grief, and maintain their marriages during difficult times. This newly revised edition offers the same compassion and encouragement plus chapters on losing loved ones under special circumstances, such as suicide and AIDS.

With deep empathy, Marilyn helps those who are grieving find God's comfort. Having lost three sons, she knows the tremendous sorrows and struggles that come with the death of loved ones. Yet she shares how even in the winters of our lives God provides roses--special occasions, special people, and special memories--to give us strength and draw close to Him.

"Grief is a part of life and Marilyn Heavilin expresses the realities of grief clearly in Roses in December. She surely allowed her feelings to be transparent in an effort to help the readers realize what feelings they might be having. An excellent tool through the sad journey of loss."

    The author lost 3 sons, she is experienced in grief survival!!!

    I have given this to many people who have lost a child. My relatives who received this manual on how to grieve helped them. Everyone grieves differently, and losing a child, is ALWAYS tragic at any age.

    I read this book to educate me, to know HOW to help parents in surviving. It can apply to all who are grieving.

    This is a must read for anyone who has lost a loved one, especially a child. It was comforting to know I am not "crazy" and others had the same feelings and emotions I have. A friend recommended it to me and I am so glad I bought/read it. It was a great help.

    I have had a lot of friends who have lost children recently and all of them have found this book to be very comforting. I have bought a copy for myself as well and find it a great reference for things I can do to be helpful and serve my grieving friends. So sorry for the losses of Mrs. Heavilin but the Lord has definitely used her to comfort others.

    I first read this book in 1988 when I was searching for a book for a friend who lost her husband and son in plane crash. Since then I have given the book to anyone I know who has lost a child. I bought this book now for a friend who just lost a child to SIDS. She had a follow up book to this one but I don't remember the name of it. I would also like to get a copy of it again. Wonder if Christian Books carries it?

    A very candid look into the grief of a mother and practical ways to keep The Faith while healing. An aunt sent it to me on the death of my son, I found it so helpful, I bought a copy for a grieving friend.
