Death is all around us. We see it on the evening news.  We experience it vicariously through friends, co-workers, and fellow church members.  But when death knocks on a loved one's door, there's no way we can truly be prepared for the emotional, physical, and spiritual impact it can have on our lives.

From Grief to Gratefulness is one family's true-life account of personal loss and the arduous healing process that follows.  It deals with the specific stages that accompany bereavement including shock, emptiness, exhaustion and loss of meaning.  This book also spells out the temptations that inherently accompany grief such as anger, guilt, and an overwhelming desire to simply give up.  It gently shares Biblical truths that will help grieving individuals trust in God in-spite-of their concussed emotions and enables them to praise Him in spite of their deep hurts.

Each chapter of this compelling narrative contains highly descriptive word pictures that place the reader firmly in the author’s shoes.  Anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one will immediately connect with the heart of this universal story.  More importantly, From Grief to Gratefulness encourages its readers to embrace the memories of those who have passed on, to be grateful for the gift of life, and ultimately to look forward to the promise of eternal life together.

For anyone who has lost a loved one, the principles conveyed in this book convey the vital steps in overcoming the struggle from grief to gratefulness.
