Publisher's Description

Jesus knew how scary it is when someone gets really sick. He knew how sad it is when someone dies. Jesus cried when his friend, Lazarus, died. But he did something at his friend’s tomb that changed everything. He showed that he came to give his friends life after death.

In this vivid, moving and exciting retelling of the story of Lazarus, Lauren Chandler helps children understand that Jesus came to say goodbye to goodbyes—forever.

The author, Lauren Chandler, used the story of Lazarus to help her own children in the wake of her husband’s (Matt Chandler) brain tumor. Whether children are coming to terms with the illness or death of a loved one, or simply fearful of when that day might come, this book reassures them with the amazing truth that Jesus came to give his friends life after death.

Editorial Reviews

Goodbye to Goodbyes gives our kids a big, colorful view of the God we serve and His defeat of sin and death forever!
Lauren took one of my favorite stories in the Bible and brought it to life for us. Children and adults will be moved by the love and compassion that Jesus shows towards the people he loves in this story. Thankfully, one day there will be no more goodbyes!
At a time when our culture has so little to say about death, I am so grateful to Lauren for telling our children that Jesus has all the answers to our questions. Read this book with your children and talk to them about the hope we have with Jesus... forever.
I recently said the hardest goodbye I’ve ever had to say. We put her down in the cold-cot, being careful with her lifeless neck. And with pangs of pain, we left the room, saying goodbye to our stillborn daughter.
In this winsome little book, Lauren Chandler applies resurrection reality to the heart, in a way that will help both adults and kids face death with faith and hope.
God always tells the best stories—for adults and for kids. Whatever our age, we need to hear Jesus say again and again, "Take away the stone." Lauren Chandler helped to bring this precious story alive for me in new ways as I saw it through my daughter’s eyes. This book is a sweet gift to parents—for our children and for our own souls.
In this world, there are way too many goodbyes. Our grief over sickness, sorrow, pain, and death is right, good... and, in Christ, temporary—because Christ has died, Christ has risen, and Christ will come again! These truths cannot be drilled into the human heart too early in life. That’s why I’m so grateful Lauren has written this lovely, hopeful, child-accessible representation of Jesus calling his friend Lazarus up from death. Parents, read this book to your kids over and over again... so that when it comes time for them (and you) to say goodbye, they (and you) will know it is only temporary.
As a parent, and as one who has had to say my share of goodbyes, I understand the difficulty of explaining death to children in a way that validates their sadness but also offers hope in the midst of their sorrow. This book is a beautifully helpful reminder that, even though it feels like it, death doesn’t have to be a forever goodbye, because Jesus came to end goodbyes.
This book is full of faith, beauty, hope and life as it helps children deal with grief and loss. I’m so grateful Lauren has written this.
How do we help our children get over the fear of death? Lauren Chandler’s engaging account of Jesus and Lazarus speaks profound biblical truth into this common childhood fear. Every generation can read it and be glad!
I always enjoy Lauren’s wisdom and whimsy! Goodbye to Goodbyes is such a sweet story highlighting the merciful heart of Jesus and how his resurrection power brings us the promise that we will one day have no more tears, no more pain, and no more goodbyes!
Goodbye to Goodbyes made my heart leap and brought me to joyful tears! No matter the season you or your family find yourself in, whether valley or mountain top, experiencing abundance or loss, this book speaks directly to the heart and centers its readers on the profound hope we have in Jesus.
