    This book hits all the right target buttons for experiencing grief and finding “life after death”. Great tools for working through loss.

    Hello Karen, How are you today? I am not well, because of health problems (I’ve been in and out of the hospital) and my mother just passed away. Mom died July 1, 2014 of a hereditary form of low grade, slow growing lymphoma. I had four hours out of 30 years with her. I would never hurt my precious mom. I love and miss her so very much. Except for GOD and my husband, I have no one to turn to. I sang two of my mother’s favorite songs to her while she was alive. “Consider The Lilies” and “Mercy”. I sang “Mercy” at her funeral. I sang like GOD gave my voice wings. They wore out three cassettes. When will this pain go away? My dad passed away in 2002 from lung cancer and I still find myself weeping. Thanks, Teresa

      Dear Teresa,

      It took courage to write about your broken heart. Thank you for sharing some of the details. I am so sorry for your losses. Not only are you grieving the death of your mother, but you are also feeling the loss of all the years of separation from her as well as the loss of healthy relationships with your siblings. You ask, “how long will the pain last?” There is no answer. However, there is a loving God who holds your broken heart so gently and he brings hope of a better future. There is no better way to get through the pain than to feel it. In one of the sections of my book I explain that the human body cannot take 100% grief 100% of the time. So grieve when you grieve and when you don’t grieve, don’t grieve. In other words, give yourself permission to have seasons (moments) of relief or distraction from the pain and then give yourself permission to hurt. One of the best bandaids for heartache is the powerful salve of God’s word. If you don’t have one of my books, I recommend purchasing one as soon as possible. It combines the power of God’s healing words of life, comfort, healing, and hope with space to release your fear, confusion and pain.
