Loss has many names --
divorce, death, illness, bankruptcy, depression,
disappointment, betrayal, job loss, and more.
And as we experience these losses, we sometimes wonder how we will survive.
Whether you are reeling from the blow of an immediate crisis or in need of help to sustain you for the long haul, you will find spiritual strength and practical strategies on every page of this book.
Purposefully designed to meet you where you are on any given day of need, this book is divided into two parts:
PART 1 offers emergency tactics to help you keep your head above water when a huge wave of pain threatens to pull you under. PART 2 reveals seven strategies to help you navigate the stormy waters and make it safely to a peaceful shore.
Some days, all your heart can take in may be one simple thought. At those times, you can easily flip through the pages and find...
encouraging Bible verses and inspirational quotes -- set off, centered, and easy to find.
At other times, you may need to soak up...
practical help and biblical teachings.
share in stories of others who have also gone through pain.
These are here for you as well.
When difficult times come -- and they come to us all -- it helps to know that
you are not alone,
that you will survive,
and that there will be an end to your crisis.
This book is dedicated to you, as you find that hope and help to survive your bad year.

Tell us a little about yourself. I live in the beautiful Cascades of Oregon, married to Bill. We are parents of five married children (four sons, one daughter) who are giving us a ton of incredible grandkids!
What was your motivation behind this project? Over four years ago, we helped our daughter (who was not ready yet to be a mom) relinquish her baby for adoption. Having adopted our daughter, I thought I knew about adoption. I learned the other side of it--that of loss--through this experience. It was traumatic.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? We all go through stuff, sooner or later. But my hope is that people will know we can get "through"--we don't have to stay in the pit!
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I interviewed other people to find their stories of how they got "through"--and I was so inspired! God is the Redeemer, after all. He can make a way where there is no way.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? The Scriptures! As well as C. S. Lewis; Joan Chittister; Philip Yancey; Classic writers such as the Desert Fathers; Theresa of Avila
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Hold on, my friend--joy comes in the morning!
