The Sound of God Breathing
After a husband loses his wife to cancer, his personal experience with grief becomes a source of help and healing to others.
Through his own difficult journey of loss, Don discovers God breathing life into him again. This deeply personal book reveals how to:
- Reflect on and understand your own grieving
- Trust that God loves, accepts, supports and accompanies you through grief
- Learn to smile and laugh again—and not feel guilty
It is not a how-to book and does not offer “paradigms” or “stages” to work through. However, it does show an alternative to the ambiguous concept of closure after losing a loved one. In conversational style as though sitting together over coffee, the author walks through questions like:
How do I define myself now?
Do I have a future, and what is it?
How can faith become my constant resource?
How do I stop comparing myself to others who grieve or models for
grieving that do not work for me?
The book is a refreshing conversation with the author and the Lord about how to regain a future and hope by hearing God breathing—for you and with you—in everyday life.
