Publisher's Description

Losing means grieving.
Grieving means choices.
Choices mean hurt or healing.

You’ve lost someone you love. Or you’re on the brink of losing your marriage. Your dreams. Your health. Or perhaps the trauma of your past pursues you into the present.

Your life’s going to change. Which way it goes won’t be decided by your loss, but by the choices you make.

At the crossroads of grief, one road will lead to hope and healing. The other, to more hurt.

Hope When Your Heart Is Breaking is an honest look at both roads, and how your greatest loss can lead to your greatest gain. Author Ron Hutchcraft writes from the deep well of his own devastating loss and grief, and points you to the practical steps that lead to peace and wholeness.

This book is a pathway to hope—a roadmap through the pain of grief and loss. Discover new strength through a new closeness to others and to God. And make the decisions that lead to comfort, growth, and life.

Editorial Reviews

"Most of us don't stop to consider how vital, how essential hope is—until we feel it starting to slip away. Ron Hutchcraft has learned how to fight for hope and where to look when hope is hard to see. He has given all of us a great gift here. This book will breathe fresh hope into even the most discouraged heart."
—Bob Lepine, cohost, FamilyLife Today

"There are many takeaways in this book…but the following three bullets are my favorites. They will prove helpful to everyone who embraces them…
•I will not deny my pain
•But I will not be defined by my loss
•I will rely on an unseen but certain Hope beyond the hurt.
Thank you, Ron. As a fellow widower, these are an enormous help."
—Robert Wolgemuth, bestselling author

"Ron Hutchcraft’s Hope When Your Heartbreaking is not directed solely at people of his—and my—vintage, though we find the deaths of loved ones inescapably more common. As has been his trademark for decades, Ron attacks the gritty reality of grief in a way that not only reveals his heart, but also offers biblical insight and peace to anyone suffering heartache from any source. Based on the loss of his lifetime love, Ron unflinchingly casts himself into the embrace of the God of all comfort."
—Jerry B. Jenkins, novelist and biographer, coauthor of the Left Behind series

"This is a great book, readable, honest, and biblical. A healing balm for those who are suddenly thrust into a bleak future and left only with memories of happier times. Thanks, Ron, for this window into your life that gives as a ray of hope in our sorrow and the reminder that, despite our losses, we still have God and His promises. Read this book for yourself and pass it along to a friend."
—Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, pastor emeritus, The Moody Church, Chicago

"This isn’t a book you can skim to write an endorsement, From chapter one the authentic words of real pain and practical encouragement went straight to my heart, kept me turning pages and brought new hope to my own life. All of us will experience the pain of a broken heart and glimpse the abyss of hopelessness more than once during our life. The wisdom Ron shares in this book reveals practical steps that lead from the valley of the shadow of death to the sun-drenched slopes of hope. I saw my own heartbreak in part two and my own life is brighter because of this book. Yours will be too."
—Ken Davis, author, professional speaker, president of Dynamic Communicators

"I have had a half-century friendship with the man of God who wrote this greatly needed and relevant book. With suffering and early death out of control in the world today, this message is not optional. If you are in a hurry, start with the last chapter—’The Only Safe Place.’"
George Verwer, DD, founder of Operation Mobilization

"Hope When Your Heart Is Breaking is Ron’s poignantly written gift to Karen’s memory and to the reader, as he opens up his heart to honestly reveal both the pain and the peace, the grief and the goodness, and the emptiness and the fulness of Christ’s presence in the middle of that storm. In doing so, he exposes a greater truth to the reader—death is not final; it’s merely transitional. He transforms a theological concept of hope into a practical, honest, and heartfelt reality of how to walk through the valley of the shadow of death to find that hope in a personal relationship with Jesus. This book will be transformational to anyone searching for a heartfelt, honest approach to the sudden loss of a loved one."
—Joe Battaglia, broadcaster, author of Make America Good Again, president of Renaissance Communications

"Ron’s words create poignant, transforming pictures in our minds, drawing us to a higher place. Better than cloud-chasing hope, Scripture’s truths can be grasped, lifting us to that place. Not cotton candy— sweet for a only moment—but truths that provide strength through the valley. I’ve been through that valley myself. I commend Ron’s words to you, because they are our Lord’s words. Hope guaranteed. Raw lessons from precious moments—all pointing us Godward."
Miriam Neff, founder and president of Widow Connection, author, counselor, and speaker
