Finally something that pricks my heart
Helps a Parent to Work through the "Worst Loss"
The author talks about shaken faith and our perceptions of God in our lives and how that relationship can drastically change after the tragic loss of a child. Although the author doesn't specifically focus on suicide he does a great job in helping a parent understand their loss and how it relates to faith and a future without their child.
It helped me put into perspective that bad things happen on this earth and that we are not simply chosen by our bad deeds or otherwise to have to be the ones that deal with the loss of a child. God can be and is present in our lives and we often see his presence through the love and compassion we receive after a tragedy. God works his miracles through us.
Not really character driven, but yes.
Yes, I cried a lot but it is helping with the recovery of my loss.
It is a book to re-read over as you go through your recovery.
