Joyce Rogers is the widow of legendary Baptist minister Adrian Rogers (1931Ð2005). A loving mother and homemaker living just outside Memphis, Tennessee, she has also written many inspirational books.
This book is about a journeya journey through the fog experienced by the widow. Having experienced this journey, I want to share with other widows the assurance that this fog will lift and that the piercing ache in the heart will diminish.
I want to point other widows to their greatest source of comfort and strengththe living and written Word of God. I want to share some timeless truths that have guided me through this darkest night of my soul. I want to point them to some of the names of God that will strengthen their faith and help them to pray in faith, beginning with Jehovah SaboathGods special name for widows, which means the LORD of Hosts, Who will fight my battles for me. (Isaiah 54:5)
Life is so mundane and daily, so I want to also give some practical pointers for dealing with the daily round of life as the widow journeys through the fog. I want to share about help for financial, friendship and health needs.
I have been there. Ive cried out to God, Help me, help me. And He did. Ive asked the question, Who am I now that he is gone? I want to share with others the help that Jesus can be today and the hope He will give for tomorrowthat He is sufficient for all their needs, if they only trust Him.
Ive been to the grave and I know he isnt there. I want to share how others can learn to live by faith in a real worlda world in which things dont always turn out the way we wish.
Yes, I want to introduce them to the One, Who was my Guide through the fog of lossthe LORD Jesus Christ. I want to assure them that if they hold on to His hand, He will guide them through the fog.
This group of women are so needy! I have found this help and hope in Jesus Christ. I want them to know this too.
In Jesus wonderful name,
Joyce (Mrs. Adrian) Rogers

childofgodAge: 45-54Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5An Encouraging BookDecember 11, 2014childofgodAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I good book by a wonderful lady. It is rich with scripture and encouragement, which I can appreciate. However, two sections of the book could be less than encouraging for certain individuals. One chapter includes suggestions for eating healthy foods, some of which may not be practical for those living on a fixed income. Also, the chapter about getting a dog could be painful for those with living situations that do not permit pets. Overall a lovely book, but I would carefully consider my audience before giving it as a gift.

I felt like it was written specifically for me. Joyce touched my heart with this book and since then I have purchased several copies and have given them to women who have lost their husbands. I like to keep a couple copies on hand in case of unexpected loss. Thank you for carrying it in your line of materials.

The 'fog' she talks about is exactly what I have experienced; her recommendations about scriptures and the comfort and peace they bring are so true.
re2018Age: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Not what I expectedOctober 14, 2011re2018Age: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2This is the first book by Joyce Rogers that I've read and somehow expected it to be like her late husband's preaching. I was expecting more of a "widow's guide to starting over" than what she wrote. She includes a lot of Scripture which is wonderful but I can read Scripture without buying her book. The content, other than the Scriptures. was disappointing and really nothing new from what I've already read in other places. The cover and binding are very attractive and inspiring - not so much the content.
