Debbie Heydrick Lends Encouragement Based on Personal Experience


MAITLAND, FL— Within the pages of Debbie Heydrick’s new book, I’ll Hold You In Heaven Remembrance Book, ($18.49, paperback, 9781545618455; $29.99, hardcover, 9781545618462) readers will turn the pain of loss into treasured memories. Written for anyone who has experienced the loss of a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, or early infant death, this book walks the reader through processing their grief and assists in finding purpose behind their pain. With a heartfelt message of validation, Heydrick give parents space to grieve and remember the life that left footprints on their hearts.


“Losing a child in miscarriage is painful, but that pain is a sign of God's truth: these were children, not ‘blobs of tissue,’” states the author. “Precious children lost through miscarriage, stillbirths are not less significant than the lives we fight to save in the Pro-Life Movement as believers. My hope and prayer is that parents will grieve, but not as one who has no hope. With full assurance I can say, one day we will see them again. Know that one day your pain will be less intense, but the memory of your child never has to be less significant. I give you permission to be forever changed, to choose to be better, not bitter and to ultimately heal.”


Debbie Heydrick has experienced giving three of her own children to God in heaven, and was moved to share her story with other families. She is an author and speaker, spreading her story across ministries, retreats, conferences, and churches.
