Comments From Readers:


“The author’s candid expression of her journey will touch the heart of the reader. It will not only benefit many widows and church groups but will instill a greater compassion in those who have not yet faced this journey themselves. Scripture use is prominent throughout its pages and gives powerful guidance for each challenge. I feel this book and its companion journal will be a blessing to every reader.

I can’t wait to give this book to my mother-in-law since the Lord called my father-in-law to Heaven a year ago. I know it will minister to her heart and change her life.”

Tammie L.


“She challenges you to look inside yourself and share what has transpired in your own life. It is helpful as well for those who have friends who have lost a loved one, to give understanding and empathy as well as ways to help them. A must read.”

Linda T.
