I've looked forward to this book being published for months.... You see, my world was once rocked by death. My world went from full of joy to complete darkness within seconds... with no proper way to process or cope with the loss. In this book, you experience just that. In the blink of an eye (or a ring of the phone), her world changed. The book speaks in depth about her loss, her grieving, the neverending darkness.... then the beautiful light that God promises us should we seek it out. It makes you feel all the feels.. and hope all the hopes. It's a beautiful story... an "oh my stars.. I might actually be normal" type of story.
While I have since come to better terms with my loss (30 years later), I can clearly see how this book will help so many others get through their grief. Not only that... but how to see God in the small, minute things along the way.
& should you have never experience an earth shattering loss, this book is still beneficial to you.. It can help you understand some that has and their actions. It can also help you see how to bless or support others as they struggle with their loss.
JL is so down to earth and relatable. I love the part in the story where she says that sometimes when someone is grieving they are so busy taking care of all the things and everyone else that they forget to put their own oxygen mask on. The entire anology made me pause and think back on my losses and spend some time reflecting.
This book is a must read for everyone as we deal with death or as we help others navigate through their grief. This book gives us tools to link arms as christian brothers and sisters and lift each other’s burdens.
