You May Feel Alone In Your Grief, But God is Ever Present

Xulon Press presents encouragement for widows and widowers.


Author Kay E. Thomson introduces readers to God’s peace in Finding JOY in the Midst of Grief: Continuing in God’s Loving Grip Through the Loss of a Loved One ($15.49, paperback, 9781609579135; $5.99, e-book, 9781612150932).


Thomson began writing a nightly blog for her friends and family while her husband was battling Parkinson’s and Stage 4 cancer.  Those months, though immensely difficult, brought them closer than ever before.  After her husband’s death, her readers encouraged her to write a book and she accepted the opportunity to encourage others struggling with grief and dramatic life changes.


This book will give insight as to how you can find peace, joy and acceptance as you also learn that God has not frowned on you or abandoned you but that He is ever present.  He will show you a new purpose, if you seek Him,” said Thomson.


Kay Thomson worked for over 15 years as the assistant to Church Music Pastors and finished her administrative career in the high-tech industry where she supported Vice Presidents and Directors for 35 years.  Since losing her husband of 44 years, she has formed and led support groups for others dealing with grief and loss.  Thomson currently serves in her home church in Roseville, CA.
