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.
