After the huge loss that I experienced with my 19 year old Son Ibrahim, I found this book to be insightful and therapeutic. It helped me deal with the barrage of emotions and sift through my sorrows. It also provided a daily thought that i could focus on.
I bought this book seeking some validation for my emotions and, perhaps, some guidance after losing my husband, my younger sister, and my mother all within a year. I am a Christian and, while I trust God's plan for my life, I still needed to deal with all of my human emotions. What's normal? What do I do with all the grief? How have other people done it? I didn't need Christian platitudes, I needed real life advice. This book provides it. So many times I read this author's words that seemed to come right out of my head/heart. I felt myself saying, "Yes, that's exactly how I feel." Not only am I still reading it myself, I have also bought copies for friends who are working through loss. I highly recommend it.
I received one from a friend after my husband passed away and it has been very helpful. I have given this book to friends who have lost a loved one. I have two on hold here as two of my friends are close to losing a loved one.
I bought several copies after borrowing it from a support group's lending library. I now have one for myself and have given it to others who are grieving. It is being well received!!! Very well written; I always feel comforted by this devotional book.
