Where do you go with the heartache you can’t even put into words?
Whether you have lost a loved one to a prolonged illness or to an unexpected tragedy, it helps to encounter others who have walked a similar road and faced similar questions. When God & Grief Meet offers just that: Real-life stories that meet you in your sorrow and inspire you with the hope and strength to go on.
Lynn Eib, a longtime patient advocate and grief support group facilitator, shares her gift of encouragement in this heartening message for mourners. You won’t find pat answers, clichés, or easy-fix formulas, but you will see that God specializes in consoling those who grieve. As Psalm 34:18 promises: “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.” This is the spirit of When God & Grief Meet: A book that will give comfort for your present and courage for your future.
I have been inspired by the book and plan to suggest it for reading by the grieving people I meet. May God bless you as you continue doing His work here on earth.
Thank you for sending Lynnâ€™s latest book. I received it on Thursday night and finished it by
Saturday. Loved several things about it and thought of friends who have lost spouses with whom Iâ€™d like to share it.
Lynnâ€™s style is direct and easy to read. Her examples add much to the book. I think the thing I appreciate most is her honestyâ€”we donâ€™t know why tragedies happen; grief can be so very hard. Glib answers are not given. Lynn sympathetically keeps the reader going back to God for the comfort only He can give.
Thank you, thank you!
My husband died February 9, 2009 after six and a half years of cancer treatments for Liposarcoma. The last three and a half years of his life were spent in a wheel-chair after his right leg was amputated at the hip. We both were also the caregiver's to his mother since 2000. She died the day after Mother's Day in 2008.
Last week, I was cleaning out a drawer and saw your book, When God & Grief Meet. I'm not sure if someone gave it to me or I just saw it at the bookstore, but today, the LORD made it very clear, it was time to read it. I read it in one afternoon. I've never done that before...
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!! I'm still weeping and plan to buy as many books tomorrow as I can find. Keep on your knees and allow the LORD continue to use you in this mighty way.
God bless you! Julie Pedersen, Ft. Worth, TX
As a parent who recently lost a teenage son, this book was a true blessing with the many words of comfort, compassion, and wisdom.
This book is full of hope and encouragement for anyone walking the dark road of sorrow. As comforting as a hug from a friend, this book is not one full of theological gobbledygook or clichÃ©s but instead offers many warm words of encouragement and comfort.
