Have you gone through some horrible grief in life? Have you been through it more than once? Are you still grappling with grief trying to get your head above those murky waters? I have been there several times, and so has Susan B. Mead. She shares very honestly about the pits of despair, and how God reached to lift her up every time. He sustained her through the Bible which is His Word, prayer, and showing her His light along the way. Her sister, Bette, died in her prime very unexpectedly. Her beloved uncle passed away, then when her healthy, full of life son also died unexpectedly, it rocked her world. Where did they go? Were they alright? Well, God showed her, and gave her that peace that passes our human understanding, and filled her with strength, healing, and joy running over. He is the perfect and the only true source of those things. He loves each of us and waits for us to come to Him, sometimes wooing us patiently for a long time.
I encourage you to read "Dancing With Jesus;" more than once. I believe it will help you find comfort. Maybe it has been long enough that you have processed through your grief. I still recommend that it is a good book for you to purchase for someone else you know who is going through the grieving process. I pray above all that you know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. If you do not, I invite you to just ask Him to forgive you and live in your heart to be your Lord and Savior. I am not a chaplain, as Susan B. Mead is. She is a good person to talk to about Jesus, and I know she would love to talk to you about it. Either way, Jesus will fill you and take your hand and never let it go.
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.
I loved the "seeing Heaven" references,books, movie, etc, that she refers to. However, I differ with why I liked them. For her in her grief they helped. My being invited into her grief and recovery, was a little lost with the parallel of fiction and the Truth of God's Word and I found myself really wanting more back story of faith that prepared and carried her through such horrible grief.
Believers of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are no longer under the old law and covered by the Grace of God through His Son Jesus Christ. Having said that, and believing that, I differ with her belief that a tattoo is forbidden by God. I know she loved the tattoos she spoke of, even though she felt they were forbidden. No, I do not have a tattoo.
I feel that the author wanted this to be a quick read that someone grieving could through. It is definitely that, albeit choppy and left this reader thankful for her sharing but still yearning for maybe a walk with Jesus rather than a quick step.
Ultimately, though, I am happy that I read it.

Ms Mead has written a heartfelt devotional/memoir with deep understanding and passion.
I did find Susan’s book a little difficult to get into, however as I read on I found myself enjoying the questions she shared with the reader. Grief is a painful emotion, however I believe fear is much worse. Susan guides us through her own journey of grief to grace, and of course her strong faith is what got her through. If someone were to lose a loved one and not have faith, I believe they would be overwhelmed by fear, and that would make the grief unbearable. I too have had my fair share of grief in my life, but it is with gratitude and love that I am able to move on with my own life.
One thing I didn’t prefer within this book was Ms Mead’s attempt to promote her direct sales business. I don’t believe there is room for one’s own marketing within a devotional designed to help the reader move from Grief to Grace. I also feel the book is quite expensive for its size.
I enjoyed reading the bible verses at the beginning of each chapter. I felt they were wisely chosen and heartfelt. In particular, I loved the following verse at the very beginning:
"Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness . . . " Psalm 30: 11
Overall it is a lovely book, written with a sincere heart. I hope it brings peace to many. Thank you for sharing Susan.
