Publisher's Description

Through great personal loss, authors Cecil Murphey and Liz Allison have gained insight to share with others who are going through uncertainty, depression, and loneliness after losing a loved one. They also offer advice for those comforting someone who is grieving.

Among comforting paintings by artist Michal Sparks, brief stories, personal experiences, and prayers offer a meaningful path toward healing for readers when they:

  • feel alone and lost in their grief and want to reconnect with others and to life
  • seek to make sense of their loss alongside their sense of faith, purpose, and God
  • want to honor their loved one without clinging to the past in unhealthy ways

Readers are given gentle permission to grapple with doubt, seek peace, and reflect on their loss in their own way without judgment and with understanding and hope. A perfect gift for a loved one dealing with loss.

    Have you lost a loved one recently? Do you wish to reach out to someone close to you who is struggling with grief? Authors Cec Murphey and Liz Allison both know what it feels like to lose loved ones. Liz found herself suddenly plunged into widowhood, leaving her with two small children to care for. Cec faced the deaths of five close family members within eighteen months.

    The opening words of this book say it all: "No one grieves the way you do. Your grief is private and intimate." Others try to come alongside you. Sometimes they help. Sometimes they make things worse. This book contains the words and the simplicity to reach deep inside, to the areas that hurt so badly you feel you'll never recover. It says to you, "It's all right to be you, and it's all right to feel exactly the way you do."

    I bought this book in March 2010 and put it to one side to read—sometime. Then I lost two family members within 10 weeks. I remembered the book, and read it through in an evening. I was so impressed with the thoughts and compassion contained in the pages, I gave it to my newly widowed brother-in-law the next day to read. I only loaned it to him, as I knew he wasn't a reader and probably wouldn't read it. He not only read it over and over, he ordered several from an online bookstore so that he could share the message with others.

    The delightful packaging of the book, the simple and inspiring stories, and the beautiful illustrations by Michael Sparks combine to make this an ideal gift for anyone who is faced with the inevitable—the loss of a loved one.

    "Words of Comfort for Times of Loss" is an extremely comforting book for anyone experiencing the loss of loved ones. I have used a copy to share with the Widow's Group I am blessed to lead at my church, and the ladies are being greatly encouraged and blessed.

    At some time, each of us will suffer grief due to loss. In a world where terra firma eventually gives way to earthquakes of tragedy, you may one day find yourself living on a fault line of grief. Cecil Murphey and Liz Allison combine their personal experiences to cultivate a solid resource in their book, Words of Comfort for Times of Loss. Written from the depths of their hearts, this beautifully illustrated book shares how Murphey and Allison found practical ways to cope with their pain. Chapters about loneliness, accepting help, regrets, and even how to deal with a loved ones belongings, provide aid for the grieving and insight for friends and family close to them. Murphey and Allison ask the same questions many will after loss and then offer the answers that brought them solace in the midst of their anguish.Words of Comfort for Times of Loss also relates to the process we endure from other types of loss: loss of health, broken relationships, financial and employment loss, and the tragic circumstances of divorce. When youre not sure what to offer someone dealing with painful loss, this book makes a wonderful gift.

    Cecil Murphey and Liz Allison know first-hand the gut-wrenching pain of loss of family members. Their book, Words of Comfort for Times of Loss, offers encouragement and support to those of us who have lost loved ones. Murphey and Allison validate the emotional roller coaster we ride on the journey of grief and mourning. The beautiful illustrations of Michael Sparks add to the peace and comfort this book provides. I highly recommend it and will use it as a gift for those who suffer loss. This book belongs on the shelves of those involved in Christian counseling, in church libraries, in Christian grief support groups, and in ministries such as the Stephen Ministry. I hope those who lose a loved one will read this book as soon as possible.

    Beautiful, honest, real words of great compassion and true comfort. Cec Murphey and Liz Allison have gathered the words hurting people long to hear and those who love them wish they knew to say. As practical as it is lovely, Murphey and Allison share from their own experiences of loss to offer not only comfort, but concrete points for help, hope and healing. Powerful!
