We live in a culture that is desperate to avoid loss. We chose to fight it because we assume that it has come only to unfairly steal and inflict terrible pain. Loss is seen as the rogue enemy and heartless foe, rather than an opportunity for immense and improbable growth. It s in loss that some of the richest and rarest of life s lessons lay buried, eagerly waiting to be deeply mined and unearthed. In the deepest pain God does the deepest work. An Autumn s Journey – Deep Growth in the Grief and Loss of Life s Seasons does not loosely gloss over loss or provide shallow prescriptions and weak formulas for our grieving. Rather, it aggressively embraces both grief and loss, bringing fresh eyes to these times in our lives in order to draw out of them the marvelous riches that we all too often miss.
Reviews for An Autumn’s Journey: Deep Growth in the Grief and Loss of Life’s Seasons
“What I did not expect, as I read, was the profound raw emotion that swept through me chapter after chapter in light of my sister-in-law mothers horrific diagnoses. Your book will be a valuable tool as I walk with this family, whom I dearly love, as they face their own “Autumn’s Journey”. Thanks for the reminder that the sting of death, or any great pain, can awaken the dormant part of our spirit and provide us with a fresh insight incoming all that God has created us to be through his rich and loving blessings on our life.”

“Life is a journey, and so is one’s grief. An Autumn’s Journey engages the reader to feel another’s loss while following God’s purpose in every aspect that one experiences grief. This book illustrates that despite the excruciating pain, the journey will shape us into everything God has designed us to be without marginalizing or discounting any step along the way.”

“My daughter is struggling so I am struggling too. This book gave me some real ideas to ground me and help me be strong for her. There was point after point, and you said them in a way that was so moving and made some much sense. They gave me strength, but they also helped me know what to say to my daughter to help her. I can’t say thanks enough.”
