Book Takeaway:

Loss is something I’ve faced much in recent mother, and shortly after my father. But grief is a road we all must travel on some time in our lives.

Every day we hear of tragedies—someone diagnosed with cancer, another who’s lost a child, a job, their possessions, going through a divorce, suffering under abuse. How do we cope in times like these? In our own strength it would be difficult, if not impossible. But through God we can face the tomorrows without our loved ones, we can rise to the challenge of an uncertain future, we can cope. We can do all things because Christ gives us the strength. And it is only by that strength we can carry on and can find the will and the reason to smile once more.

Perhaps you’ve been in the places my hero and heroine find themselves in the pages of this book. If so, it is my prayer that you, too, will learn to lean on Jesus no matter your circumstance, because he stared death and loss in the face and triumphed.

If you’re on a journey through grief or uncertainty, may you remember that there is something so amazing about God’s comfort, about seeing Him bring beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for all your mourning!
