It is better to go to the house of mourning, than
to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living
will lay it to his heart. Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of
the countenance the heart is made better. The heart of the wise is in the house
of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.
An honest and straightforward auto-biography which
includes a Bereaved Mom's personal Testimony, 183 Topics, Scriptures of
Comfort, and her deceased son's poems. It offers Hope and Redemption to others
on this journey of Grief. It is approximately 370 pages with a beautiful design
and internal layout. It can also be utilized in group discussions easily
because of the manner in which the Topics are presented. The Author has been a
Pastor's wife, a counselor at a treatment center in a hospital, a counselor at
a private clinic, has worked numerous hotlines and at shelters for the abused,
sat on the board of a major city rape crisis center for 3 yrs., had designed her
own program on shame-reduction which she taught at a women's center,
facilitated many groups, raised 4 natural born children along with an adopted
child and a foster child, has had 4 pregnancy losses, and was barren for 7 yrs.
while being told by doctors that she could not have children. It's a remarkable
story of Hope & Redemption. She became an ordained minister 2/06. She
currently operates an on line informative and supportive group for bereaved
parents and continues to write new topics on WordPress.com. This is her 1st
book. She intends to publish a 2nd in the future focused on a 24 yr. abusive
marriage. I highly recommend it.
