About the Author

Susan B. Mead, a medical technologist with an MBA, spent 22-plus years in the diabetes sector with Johnson & Johnson prior to founding the blog Agog4God.com, A Gathering of Girlfriends and Guys for God. After Susan lost her youngest son, she came to realize that even when things get broken, discarded, or replaced, people matter most. Susan is a Charter Blogger on the Bible Gateway Blogger’s Grid, has been published in Medical Laboratory Observer (MLO), and has been described as a solid, comforting voice in a messy world.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

We had the pallbearers lined up for Kyle’s service. Both hockey teams that Kyle had played for were going to be honor guards, and his closest friends were the pallbearers. One of his dearest friends, Steven Robertson, who we call Bub, even flew into Louisiana from Sydney, Australia to serve as a pallbearer for Kyle. And a friend on the Isle of Wight lit a candle for this twenty-year-old young man. How is it that some folks know people all over the world? Even in a short twenty years, Kyle lived―exuberantly!
Imagine my horror, then, when I found out that one of Kyle’s closest friends, Kenny, had been with Kyle when he purchased drugs which, combined with a beer later that evening, caused respiratory distress, resulting in Kyle’s death. Kyle’s body was still in Lafayette and the funeral was to be scheduled once he had been released from the morgue and transported up to Shreveport, so timing was still up in the air at that point.
I immediately called Matt to say that I could not have Kenny as a pallbearer. Matt’s words were simple, eloquent, and have subsequently changed the course of my life: “Mom, God’s already forgiven Kenny. You need to too.”
“Oh, Matthew, I will have to pray about that.” And the burden lifted a little. God gave me the grace to forgive Kenny, for Kenny had―and still has―the heaviest load to bear. He carries it each and every day. His friend died. That cannot be changed. But it is our response to an event that shows our character, not the event itself. So how was I going to respond?
I called Kenny the next day to let him know how absolutely disappointed I was in the decision that they both made, but Kyle loved him and would want Kenny there for him―and I would be honored for him to be a pallbearer for Kyle. Kenny is doing well to this very day―and served our country with honor. Rejoice!
And that’s God―pouring His grace out on His children. You see, God knew we both needed His grace―to move from broken to breathing to blessed, free, and forgiven.
Personal Reflection
Have you needed to forgive someone? Did you forgive them?
Have you prayed to God to lift that burden off of you―and then freely given the load to Him?
Did you feel the burden lighten?

Recently, I personally have been overwhelmed by the pain and disappointment of grief. On many occasions I have felt guilt for grieving so hard instead of rejoicing. Susan was spot on in describing the experiences that God so freely gives. It's those experiences that bring comfort. From her dreams to scripture to life giving words of others she found healing. Beyond healing she found joy and thanksgiving. She has so graciously passed on to others what we are all seeking during times of grief. What a blessing this book has been to my healing heart. I know that it will be a blessing to many others.

There isn't anyone that is immune to hurt and grief in this life. Some have come to know it more often and close than others. Susan's personal account of the dark shadows of a mother grieving the loss of her child is simply profound. Even more moving is her finding joy beyond the sorrow and acknowledging all the times her Lord was with her in those moments.

From the second I picked it up, I found tears streaming down my face. Some tears from feeling her pain in grief, others letting go of some of my own. Then there were tears of joy while she pushes the reader to find those special moments throughout their own life that God made His presence known in the darkness.

Dancing with Jesus: From Grief to Grace is a must read for anyone that has ever experienced the lost of someone dear to them from someone who has felt it all too well. A vessel for healing the broken-hearted through the Ultimate Healer.

Susan B. Mead has written a book I wish I had when I lost my mother in 2006. My mother as you know committed suicide at the age of 75 years old. I am a suicide survivor. I honestly believe after reading this book that if this book was available when I was grieving that my grieving process would have been glorifying to the Lord, productive and I would have moved from brokenness to joy in a timely manner. Instead of getting stuck for 6 months in the first step of grieving. I am definitely holding on to this book. Who knows what lies ahead and I know the Lord will use this book in a mighty way in the life of those it comes into contact with.

This book moved me in ways that are very hard to put into words. First of all it is a quick read. One or two pages for each chapter. I absolutely loved the questions at the end of each chapter. I am a journaler and I used the questions to journal with my three kids so we could remember their grandmother and my mother and all the memories I have swirling around of her in my heart and mind. I also used the questions to journal things for my kids to read at a later date. Little keepsakes, mementos if you will. Things that I think I will always remember but find I am forgetting more and more of. As someone who has experienced grief firsthand, I know how distracted you can be as you walk through the loss of someone in your life. This book is perfect, fits into your bag and you can take it everywhere with you. It is easy to read and light in tone. I would have loved to have a copy when the grief overwhelmed me on some days and all I saw was darkness.

Losing a son is every mother's devastating heartbreak.
Losing a sister, sister-in-law and brother-in-law in the same period of time is a knock down blow at the head, heart and feet of a whole family.

Susan B. Mead found what many women discover in a moment like this: suffering brings us to God.

The mystery to me is how did she turn suffering into spiritual insight? How do we learn to turn Grief into Grace? There aren't a lot of people out there willing to show us the way. I am glad Susan chose to tell us her story and share the Bible passages that one by one walked her down the path towards Grace. Her words also moved me as scripture. What opened my heart was her moment of grace when "The peace that passes all understanding enveloped me."

Sometimes you just have to Let Go, Let Be and let Yourself be Loved.
Amen, Sister!
