Are You Grieving the Tragic Death of a Loved One?

Are You Grieving the Tragic Death of a Loved One? 
If your life has been shattered by a devastating loss and you are mired in the darkness of despair, you may be asking these questions:

• Why did I lose my loved one?
• How can I go on living after this death?
• Will I ever feel normal again?

As the mother of a son who lost his life in a private plane crash, Linda Stirling knows life will never be the same because she’s lived it. She was inspired to write twelve powerful stories about mothers whose journeys after the death of a child will shed light on a pathway out of darkness, from grieving to healing. Healing is not forgetting.

Hope for a Broken Heart is for . . . 
•  Parents who have experienced the death of a child
 A friend caught in the fog of grief and depression
•  Family and others who want to understand and bring
 Support Groups on the healing journey
 Health Care Professionals and Counselors who reach       families

I believe the essence of this message is how our Lord longs for us to see His presence in our lives.  He is in our celebrations and in our devastations, but we have to seek Him, see Him at our side.  In this is our Hope:  God is in our lives daily.  He will hold us, support us, comfort us, cheer us on, but we have to seek Him and see His presence.  He is there - in this I am absolutely confident!”

 “Hope for a Broken Heart carries with it a voice that is both healing and powerful. I will definitely go out today with a renewed promise to both myself, Chelsea and my family to live each day rather than just getting through each day.”
Kelly King, Chelsea’s Mom

 “While only the ‘major’ catastrophes make the news, there are thousands of families and
friends whose worlds have fallen apart, desperate to know how to get back to life. Hope for a Broken Heart inspires the reader toward the upward path out of the dark valley of the
shadow of death.”
Pastor Mike MacIntosh
