A Dragonfly Will Do is a story about God’s love and grace. Beverly Jones, the author of the book, lost her son and only child. Because of her faith and trust in God, she chose to surrender her pain to God. She did not know what the future held, but she did know Who held it. Day by day and with “eyes of faith”, Beverly focused on God’s presence in her life and received the strength, the courage, and the perseverance that she needed to walk through the grief process. By seeking God’s presence daily, she was filled with His Spirit and was able to experience the strength and the peace that surpasses all understanding. A Dragonfly Will Do is a compilation of “short stories” from the journal writings that Beverly kept over a fourteen-year time span. In her book Beverly explains how God prepared her for the worst nightmare of her life. Some stories are sad; some are bittersweet, and some may make you laugh. Many stories are up-lifting and inspirational as Beverly explains how God demonstrated His love and presence through the words and actions of family and friends, through nature, and through His Word. A Dragonfly Will Do shows how God surprised, encouraged, comforted, and inspired this grief-stricken mother in the most creative, delightful, and imaginative ways. Beverly acknowledges that the days, months, and first years following her son’s death were the most painful years of her life. She most importantly acknowledges that it was in those years that she felt closer to God than ever. She gives God all the glory for upholding her and confirms that it was God’s strength within her that enabled her to experience peace and joy once again.
