When Luke Veldts thirteen-year-old daughter died suddenly in 2006, he questioned the faith he had known from childhood: "Is it all true? Is there a God? Is my daughter with Him?" Despite his doubts, Luke turned to the Bible for answers to his questions and comfort for his grief. In Psalm 103, which he read every day for a year, Luke discovered a kindred spirit in King David, who knew what it was like to be in the pit. Luke also discovered that he was learning more about God in his sorrow than he ever had in times of joy.
Luke Veldt is a church-planting missionary who served in Romania for ten years and then in Pamplona, Spain, for four. He and his wife, Jodi, have six children.

In Written in Tears, Luke Veldt shares honest and genuine feelings that he had after the death of his 13 year old daughter, Allison. Allison died due to a brain hemorrhage, so the family experienced many mixed feeling as to the reasons for her death. The author found comfort in reading Psalm 103 daily for the first year after his daughter's death. He shares his new found lessons from these words of David. He doesn't claim to have all the answers or the words of comfort to be used at these times, but he share his sincere feelings as he continues on his life journey. The author himself is a missionary living with his family in Spain. This experience cause him to reevaluate his beliefs about God when these things happen in our lives. The experience drew him closer to God and he shares his revelations with you in this book. Never having had the experience of losing a child, I cannot comment as to whether this book may be helpful to those who have, however I can say that Luke Veldt is very open with his thoughts and feelings and I appreciate his honesty in telling his story.
