Few know how to survive the icy waters of grief better than Wilma Derksen. On one random Friday in 1984, her thirteen-year-old daughter, Candace, went missing. Seven weeks later, her body was found in a shed. Left to die in the plunging temperatures of Winnipeg's first cold front that year.
Wilma's world collapsed. Her marriage, her faith, her sanity, all hung the balance in the weeks and months that followed. It was only when she stopped hiding her grief and bravely faced her experience that she began to heal. In The Way of Letting Go, Wilma shares fifteen "Letting Go" statements--including Letting Go of the Old Me, Letting Go of Guilt, and Letting Go of My Need to Know. In these pages, Wilma shows you how, with God's help, she overcame her broken heart, and replaced fear with forgiveness. You can do the same.
