    Since being widowed in nov of 2010, I have a ministry to widows and widowers. I have a book specifically for widows and have been searching for something for the widower. while the concepts are similar I have found the gents hurt so deeply but handle issues a bit differently. this book is the answer. it is written specific and to the point and I will be using it for some of the men in our group. I find it to be an asset to surviving the aftermath of loss and a guide as to what follows next. unless you travel this road, you have no idea of the potholes and ruts you will need to navigate. I recommend it to any gent out there! not sure I can recommend a book for the widow on here or not but "from one widow to another" by Miriam Neff has been an answer to prayer for so many women. Loss of your sweetheart is tough. it is nice to know what is normal in the after math of that loss. But be advised... You are never alone! He holds you tenderly in His hands! God bless you!

    Widowed within the last year and this book was very affirming. Let me know that the emotions I am experiencing are 'normal'. That I will heal but there will always be a tender scar.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Richard Mabry
Located in: Duncanville, TX
Submitted: February 21, 2006

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I retired four years ago, after thirty-five years of medical practice, the last ten as a professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. God has blessed me a second time with a wonderful wife, and we're both busier than we ever were when we were working full-time.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  From the day after my wife's funeral, I began "journaling," in the form of emails to my family, friends and pastor, as well as letters to myself and posthumous letters to her. Those who read these raw, unedited writings found them so powerful, they encouraged me to use them as the core for a book that would help others who had suffered a similar loss. The book that resulted, THE TENDER SCAR, features excerpts from that journaling, plus what one reviewer has called "loving, practical words to help the grieving in their journey toward healing of a wound that always leaves a tender scar."

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  If those who grieve can find comfort, help, and direction from reading this book, it will prove yet again that God can take a tragedy--in this case, the most agonizing loss I've ever suffered-- and bring something good from it.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I first went to a Christian Writers' Conference with great hesitancy and absolutely no plan. I left with a conviction that I absolutely had to write THE TENDER SCAR, and continue writing after that. Talented and successful authors, including James Scott Bell, Alton Gansky, Gayle Roper and Karen Ball, have mentored and supported me as I continue to learn the craft, and I appreciate all they, and many others, have done to encourage me.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  To learn more about me, my background, and my writing, check out my web site: www.rmabry.com.
