“Why God? Why does a child have to
die when murderers and rapists and terrorists get to live? Why take a four-year-old
who was innocent and full of pure love?” These are the questions that haunted
author Krista Bennett-Bruns after the heartbreaking loss of her young son,
After Sutton’s death, Krista
encountered a barrage of agonizing emotions: Intense grief and pain over being
separated from her son too soon. Rage and disgust toward the first responders
who had jeopardized Sutton’s chances of survival by refusing the help of
doctors on the scene. Anger toward the hospital staff who had kept her from holding
her son after his death. Disgust and hate toward herself for not being able to
save Sutton.
In Living Beneath the Surface: My Journey through Love, Loss, and
Forgiveness, Krista shares her story of walking down the path of these ugly
emotions for days, weeks, and years after her son’s death, unafraid to reveal
the darkness of the journey. But as Krista shows in her heart-touching memoir, sharing
everything from Sutton’s death to her exhausting battle with a serious medical
illness, darkness cannot overcome the light of Christ, who shines brightly even
in the darkest of moments through the power of forgiveness and renewed purpose.
Join Krista on the journey as she peels back the layers of her life and pours
out her heart through her story, a story that shows that God has a full-circle
purpose for your life regardless of the trials you go through along the way.
