    This book, in conjunction with the CD "Learning to See when the Lights go Out: Loss of a Loved One", was the only resource that brought me any relief after the tragic death of my daughter. Even thought I have never met Sharon Betters, I consider her my very best friend. This book is raw. Sharon is transparent about the horrors of her own feelings of grief. Sharon is the only person in the world who knows what I feel like, and I am forever grateful for this resource that gave me permission to grieve, to feel pain, and to rest in God's grip. Thank you, Sharon.

    I read this book just a few months after two tragic deaths in our family. It gave me hope that life does go on. I really liked her honesty about her grief and all the the heartache she experienced. It is heart breaking but also encouraging. I plan to buy a couple more copies to share.

    A couple months after my daughter died, my pastor gave me this book. I read it in a couple days, finding in its pages validation for the way I was grieving and how I felt. The process that Sharon Betters had gone through mirrored my own. It helped to know that I wasnt the only one who had experienced the overwhelming heartache that comes with the loss of a child.As Sharon quoted extensively from the journal she wrote in the first months after her son Mark died in a car accident, I watched her struggle with God and then accept her lifes circumstance. Sharon embraces Gods promise of eternal life for His children. She rests in the shadow of the Almightys arms, finding treasures of hope in the darkest moments of grief.The hymns and Scripture she includes in the book were the same passages I had already gone to repeatedly for comfort.I think that anyone who has experienced a significant loss can benefit from Sharons book. She allows grief and points the reader toward healing and comfort in the Lord.The book is also for those who want to help and minister to people who are grieving. In a chapter titled Whos Bearing Whose Burden, Sharon writes,The challenge of Paul in Galations 6:2, Bear ye one anothers burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ, teaches us that God expects us to not only need each other but also reflect the love of Christ by helping each other. Grief is not a pathway we should attempt to walk alone.She addresses what she calls echoes of mercy which are the little things in life God sends our way to encourage us. Such a God of grace we have. She shows us how to get through the ugly grief and live life.

    Thank God for Treasures in DarknessI had experienced chronic pain for years, as a result of a severe motorcycle crash in 1987, but I was stunned last August to learn that this had progressed into physical depression. All of a sudden I encountered unexplained crying, anxiety and insomnia. After three straight nights of no sleep, I told my wife that I could now understand how, even someone who loves the Lord, could contemplate suicide as a result of the feeling of hopelessness. Each night I cried out to God for help and a reason for this trial, but God was silent. But once again, Gods answer came in a unique way. On Sunday I purchased a copy of Sharon Betters new book, Treasures in Darkness. I began to read it immediately, and instead of trying to figure why, I focused on praising the Lord, and giving thanks in all things. Her book drove me into the Psalms, and they seemed to open the windows of heaven for me. My perspective changed to one of pursuing obedience and trusting the Lords promises.God was gracious to later reveal His purpose for this trial, and now nine months later I am totally off any anti-anxiety or sleep medication.
