  • Widows Hope : A Guide For Widows In Survival Mode


    A Widow’s Hope shares a unique story as a young widow with children who shares the raw, relatable ways she dug her way out of the trenches and back to the land of the living.

    There are many books about widowhood and grief. While helpful when the time is right, the shock and the aftermath of such a traumatic experience can make it difficult to find the time and motivation to read them while surviving the daily obstacles that zap your energy.

    Right now, the widow is too busy surviving funeral planning, endless calls and texts from family, tireless efforts to obtain the death certificate, meetings with social security, arrangements to be ironed-out with banks, mortgagors, and debts. Not to mention the practical things, like ensuring the children have been fed, arranging who will take them to school while you deal with the horrible details such as picking out his casket, or helping your children with things only you can help with?

    And then it hits her, “How will I even tell them that their father is dead? They don’t even know what ‘dead’ means!” Just thinking of the unending list of things to be done can leave the widow feeling smothered and breathless. Now is not the time for a novel; now is the time for a survival book, because right now, that’s what the widow is doing– surviving.

  • Grieving Well : A Healing Journey Through The Season Of Grief


    Death is a part of life. Even though it is a certainty, most of us are unequipped and ill-prepared for it.

    When we consider the timeline of life; it is clear that life unfolds in a series of seasons. Each of those seasons has a beginning, middle, and end. It’s easy to celebrate birth and the start of a new life because with birth comes so much optimism, hope and joy! The majority of life takes place in the seasons of growing up and becoming an adult, becoming a parent and perhaps a grandparent; this part of life is typically busy and filled with activities and lots of distractions. The most difficult part comes at the end of life’s journey.

    Whether the end comes suddenly or over a period of time, it comes with a sense of loss and emptinesss when we lose someone we love. According to the Faith Hospice website, a three-year study was conducted by Amerispeak and WebMD prior to COVID-19 in which they found that 57% of Americans are grieving in some way–the loss of a loved one, patients, human connection–at any given time. That means, if you’re walking down the street or shopping at the store, every other person you see is dealing with grief.

    In Grieving Well, storyteller Terri DeBoer has teamed up with Janet Jaymin. It is from Janet’s personal journey as a grief counselor helping thousands of individuals and families that allows her to validate that what was will never be the same. These thoughts and feelings can be a complete sense of doom and gloom for the individual but through Grieving Well, they can realize that while grief cannot be cured, peace can be found.

  • Seasons Of Sorrow


    On November 3, 2020, Tim and Aileen Challies received the shocking news that their son Nick had died. A 20-year-old student at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, he had been participating in a school activity with his fiancee, sister, and friends, when he fell unconscious and collapsed to the ground. Neither students, nor a passing doctor, nor paramedics were able to revive him. His parents received the news at their home in Toronto and immediately departed for Louisville to be together as a family. While on the plane, Tim, an author and blogger, began to process his loss through writing.

    Nick’s death resonated through the evangelical world. His memorial service in the United States and funeral in Canada were watched by thousands. Tim’s blog posts were read by hundreds of thousands as he gave voice to his sorrow and anguish, but also to his faith and hope. Seasons of Sorrow includes a selection of those early reflections, but also many pieces Tim has written since and not shared with the public. Separated into four seasons, from Fall to Summer, and written mostly in the present tense, Seasons of Sorrow shares real-time reflections from the first year of his grief.

    Seasons of Sorrow begins in the Challies living room with the phone call every parent dreads–We did everything we could. It ends exactly one year later as Tim ponders the final first. In a year of many firsts–a first Thanksgiving with an empty chair, a first Christmas with an empty stocking, a first birthday with no gifts, the anniversary of Nick’s death is the final first and, thus, a fitting conclusion. Along the way, Tim shares the poignancy of his early grief, the doubts and fears that plagued him, the faith that sustained him, and the hope that has given him joy even through such sorrow.

  • Hole In The World


    When did we forget how to grieve well?

    When Amanda Held Opelt suffered a season of loss-including three miscarriages and the unexpected death of her sister, New York Times bestselling writer Rachel Held Evans-she was confronted with sorrow she didn’t know to how face. Opelt struggled to process her grief and accept the reality of the pain in the world. She also wrestled with some unexpectedly difficult questions: What does it mean to truly grieve and to grieve well? Why is it so hard to move on? Why didn’t my faith prepare me for this kind of pain? And what am I supposed to do now?

    Her search for answers led her to discover that generations past embraced rituals that served as vessels for pain and aided in the process of grieving and healing. Today, many of these traditions have been lost as religious practice declines, cultures amalgamate, death is sanitized, and pain is averted.

    In this raw and authentic memoir of bereavement, Opelt explores the history of human grief practices and how previous generations have journeyed through periods of suffering. She explores grief rituals and customs from various cultures, including:

    *the Irish tradition of keening, or wailing in grief, which teaches her that healing can only begin when we dive headfirst into our grief

    *the Victorian tradition of post-mortem photographs and how we struggle to recall a loved one as they were

    *the Jewish tradition of sitting shiva, which reminds her to rest in the strength of her community even when God feels absent

    *the tradition of mourning clothing, which set the bereaved apart in society for a time, allowing them space to honor their grief

    As Opelt explores each bereavement practice, it gives her a framework for processing her own pain. She shares how, in spite of her doubt and anger, God met her in the midst of sorrow and grieved along with her, and shows that when we carefully and honestly attend to our losses, we are able to expand our capacity for love, faith, and healing.

    Award-winning writer and podcaster Clarissa Moll knows this landscape of loss all too well. Her life changed forever in 2019 when her husband, Rob, died unexpectedly while hiking-leaving her with four children to raise alone. In her debut book, Beyond the Darkness, Clarissa offers her powerful personal narrative as well as honest, practical wisdom that will gently guide you toward flourishing amidst your own loss.

  • Soul Care When Youre Grieving


    There is no right or wrong way to face loss. But do you ever feel you could be coping better?

    Grief is difficult. We all experience it-and we experience it differently. But what if you could break down some of the barriers created by grief? What if you could latch onto ways to engage again with the world around you?

    It’s far too easy to be tied to common misconceptions about grief. By reframing those misconceptions, we can learn to give ourselves more grace as we process loss. Each chapter of Soul Care When You’re Grieving is designated by the opposite of one of the five experiences of grief and can help you start that course to reframing through:

    *creative exercises

    God designed you uniquely–including how you process loss. Learn to embrace your own personal blueprint for dealing with grief.

    Grief is difficult. We all experience it-and we experience it differently. There is no right or wrong way to face loss, yet many of us feel we’re doing it wrong.

    In this life, we mourn-the loss of someone we love, the passing of a pet, the changes that come with age, even situations-these cause us to grieve. I wrote this book about the grief of all those situations and more. The exercises contained here aren’t geared to a specific situation, so they are appropriate for all kinds of loss.

    Going through loss narrows my world. I used to believe that was my personal experience, but I’ve discovered it’s a common grief that happens to us all. I’m praying this book helps you break down the barriers created by grief and helps you engage with the world around you.

    Most of all, I pray you learn to embrace your own process of grief and quit judging whether you’re handling things the way they should be handled. God designed each of us uniquely, and that blueprint includes the way we process loss.

    Each chapter is designated by the opposite of one of the five experiences of grief. It’s far too easy to be tied to the common misconceptions about grief, so by reframing them, I’m hoping you’ll give yourself more grace as you process your loss.

    These stages of grief are not steps or levels, they are just some common phases everyone goes through while they process loss. Don’t fall into the trap of believing they come in a certain order or that when you’ve experienced one of them, it won’t crop back up again.

    Use this book to feed your soul when you’re grieving and know my prayer team and I have prayed over your personal journey. Rem

  • Keep At It Riley


    “This is a story of how Catholic faith accompanied my family through the sickness and death of my elderly parents. What could mistakenly be seen as a downward spiral was actually upward. As my parents were called home to God those around them caught a glimpse of heaven. Ministering to them during this time was challenging, yet a blessing, not a burden… I discovered my source of strength was my Irish Catholic upbringing, the sacraments, and my God. Our family motto, ‘Keep at It, Riley!’ sums it up well. We don’t give up; we give it to God.”

    This is the second book of the Magenta series, edited by Charles Camosy. The Magenta project brings together authors who will treat important topics from the standpoint of Christian conviction without being trapped in a polarized mindset.

  • Among The Ashes


    How can we hold fast to the hope of life eternal when we lose someone we love? In this book William Abraham reflects on the nature of certainty and the logic of hope in the context of an experience of devastating grief.

    Abraham opens with a stark account of the effects of grief in his own life after the unexpected death of his oldest son. Drawing on the book of Job, Abraham then looks at the significance of grief in debates about the problem of evil. He probes what Christianity teaches about life after death and ultimately relates our experiences of grief to the death of Christ.

    Profound and beautiful, Among the Ashes tackles the philosophical and theological questions surrounding loss even as it honors the experience of grief.

  • Courageously Expecting : 30 Days Of Encouragement For Pregnancy After Loss


    Using Scripture and personal narrative, Courageously Expecting empathizes with and empowers women to face a pregnancy after loss with faith and courage, despite inevitable feelings of grief and fear that accompany life after losing a baby.

    Pregnancy is widely regarded as the most joyful time in a woman’s life, but for the mother who has experienced pregnancy loss, a subsequent pregnancy can feel like she’s holding her breath and hoping for what she can’t control. In Courageously Expecting, Jenny Albers meets women in this difficult season as someone who has also experienced the worst and cautiously hoped for the best. Through the telling of her own story, Scripture, and heartfelt prayer, she encourages readers to cling to faith in the face of fear and guides them to:
    *cultivate hope when doubt weighs heavy;

    *realize that the past does not dictate the present or the future and that God creates a way in the wilderness of grief and loss;

    *flip the script on the what-if, worst-case-scenario narrative in their minds and learn to take their thoughts captive; and

    *find the courage to humble themselves and ask for and accept help from others.

    Regardless of where readers are on their pregnancy after loss journey, Courageously Expecting is a companion to help them through the days when fear overshadows hope.

  • Hope For The Hurting


    Life is painful.

    Everyone’s story comes with unique challenges, difficulties, bumps, and bruises that leave you lost and drowning in their wake. It could be a financial disaster, a health issue, a broken relationship, or the loss of a loved one.

    Dr. Tony Evans, bestselling author and pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, understands life’s hardships firsthand. In a span of less than two years, he lost his brother, sister, brother-in-law, two nieces, father, and wife. At the same time, both of his daughters received cancer diagnoses. In the wake of all this pain, Dr. Evans had to put into practice, at the deepest levels, the truths he has preached about God for more than forty years.

    God’s Word doesn’t promise us a life free from pain and trouble. It promises us something else-Someone else. Someone who will walk with us through all of life’s trials and troubles.

    There is hope for the hurting: His name is Jesus.

  • Lemons On Friday


    After being married for less than a year, country music legend Alan Jackson’s daughter Mattie was faced with navigating a future that didn’t include her young husband and their lifelong plans.

    Ben Selecman passed away twelve days after a traumatic brain injury-and three weeks before celebrating his first anniversary with his wife. Twenty-eight-year-old Mattie had to find a way to move forward and reconcile herself with a good God, even when He did not give her the healing miracle she prayed for.

    In Lemons on Friday, readers walk with Mattie Jackson Selecman during the first years of grief following Ben’s tragic death as she grapples with her loss and leans on a steadfast God. Based on Selecman’s journal writings, Lemons on Friday will speak to all readers who must carry on without their loved ones and take a hard look at faith when their lives have not gone as planned.

    Lemons on Friday grapples with questions like these:
    *How did I get here?
    *Will this always hurt?
    *Who am I now?
    *How do I move forward?

    “When fundamental parts of our lives are lost, when people and things we thought we’d never lose are suddenly gone, it’s natural to want answers,” writes Selecman. “Why did this happen? Who’s to blame? What could I have done differently? And for many of us in the aftermath of life-shattering change, we also want to know, where is God? Not just where was He when the tragedy happened, but where is He now in my darkest days of hurt, wondering, and longing for comfort? When I am on the floor, writhing in tears with no idea what the rest of my life will look like, where is God?”

    Lemons on Friday offers insight and peace for anyone grieving, but especially for young people experiencing loss and facing a future that feels full of question marks.

  • Unexpecting : Real Talk On Pregnancy Loss


    When your baby dies, you find yourself in a life you never expected. And even though pregnancy and infant loss is common, it’s not common to you. Instead, you feel like a stranger in your own body, surrounded by well-meaning people who often don’t know how to support you.

    What you need during this time is not a book offering easy answers. You need a safe place to help you navigate tough issues, such as:
    – coping with a postpartum body without a baby in your arms
    – facing social isolation and grief invalidation
    – having faith when you feel let down by God
    – dealing with the overwhelming process of making everyday decisions
    – learning to move forward after loss, and
    – creating a legacy for your childIn

    Unexpecting, bereaved mom Rachel Lewis is the friend you never hoped to need, walking you through the unique grief of baby loss. When nothing about life after loss makes sense . . . this book will.

  • Either Way Well Be All Right


    Does God have a hope to offer us in times of pain? Can God meet and sustain us even if our circumstances don’t change?

    One of the few guarantees in life is that we will suffer. Everything around us is broken by sin. Each of us has an expiration date. A few years ago, Eric and his wife, Elizabeth, were confronted with this unavoidable reality when she was faced with a terminal cancer diagnosis and he was caring for her and their three children.

    Shattered by grief, they began to wrestle with what it means to follow Jesus when everything around them seemed to be giving way. What this pastor and his wife discovered were a set of truths about God from Scripture that provided the resources they needed to survive-truths too often neglected by the modern world. God meets us in our grief, but not always in ways we expect or even want.Coming from that jumbled place of agony and assurance, Either Way, We’ll Be All Right is a journey through the darkness in hopes of discovering the light on the other side.

  • Surviving The Holidays While Grieving


    The loss of a loved one can change our lives forever.

    Healing from the pain of losing a loved one doesn’t happen overnight. Each day can be a battle to keep unpredictable emotions under control-especially around holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, which can bring losses into full focus. Traditions and expectations often add more stress to an already grieving heart. Even simple tasks, such as walking through a store during the holidays, can surface memories that turn on emotions like a light switch. Finding joy may seem impossible.

    In Surviving the Holidays While Grieving, Janet comes alongside readers who have lost a loved one or are journeying with someone dealing with grief. With tenderness and compassion, she offers ideas for managing emotions, hands-on activities for expressing feelings in tangible ways, and tips for communicating those feelings to others. Readers will be encouraged to remember meaningful traditions and create new memories about their loved ones with others.

  • Beautiful And Terrible Things


    With deep faith, knowledge of Scripture, and the wisdom that comes only from experience, Brady guides readers grieving losses and setbacks of all kinds in voicing their lament to God, reflecting on the nature of human existence, and persevering in hope. Brady finds that rather than an image of God managing every event and action in our lives, the biblical account describes the very real world in which we all live, a world full of hardship and calamity that often comes unbidden and unmerited. Yet, it also is a world into which God lovingly intrudes to bring comfort, peace, and grace.

    Bible scholar Christian Brady, an expert on Old Testament lament, was as prepared as a person could be for the death of a child-which is to say, not nearly well enough. When his eight-year-old son died suddenly from a fast-moving blood infection, Brady heard the typical platitudes about accepting God’s will and knew that quiet acceptance was not the only godly way to grieve.

  • Learning To Live Again In A New World


    Loss brings with it many layers of grief that need to be addressed. Healing from losses requires more than just talking about our pain; it involves working through the twists and turns of conflicting emotions and confronting questions that often have no satisfactory answers. It is reassembling the pieces of life that have been shattered by assumptions and expectations in order to create a new beginning. Within the process we begin to heal and recover. But as we close one chapter of life, we need tools and information to begin a new chapter and make that transition from what was to what is now. It requires challenging old assumptions and creating a new identity and road map for life going forward.
