Grieving God's Way

Grieving God's Way by Margaret Brownley

About The Book:
A 90-day devotional healing experience for the grieving spirit. The death of a family member or friend is devastating. In fact, it can take five years or more for a person to adequately work through his or her grief, but because we live in a fast-paced society, we often sweep it under the rug or ignore it altogether. God has another plan. Man's Way: Numb the pain. God's Way: Heal the pain. Man's Way: Don't talk about it. God's Way: Share your pain. Man's Way: Time heals. God's Way: Faith heals. Grieving God's Way is a 90-day reader designed to bring hope and healing to those who have experienced loss. Each thoughtful devotional begins with a scripture and ends with a haiku, written to affirm the positive theme of the text. Divided into four categories - body, soul, heart, and spirit - each day's entry offers insight into the grieving process that increases understanding of God's purposeful plan for healing the heart and soul.

My Thoughts:
If you really follow this blog (other than the giveaways and reviews), you will know that I am still - and always will be - grieving the loss of my youngest son, Mason. And you also may know that I struggle with my relationship with the Lord for it. So anytime I can find a book that helps me better understand my grief and my faith, I jump at the chance to read it. This is a great devotional. Perfect for me, who needs to reflect just a little each day. It is beautifully put together, and the faith part is not shoved down your throat. A very nice devotional.

About The Author:
Thrills, mystery, suspense, romance: Margaret penned it all. Nothing wrong with this - except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, "Maybe God's calling you to write fiction." It turns out God was and Margaret did. She now has more than 20 novels to her credit. In addition, she's written many Christian articles and a non-fiction book. Still, it took a lot of prodding from God before Margaret tried her hand at writing inspirational fiction which led to her Rocky Creek series. "I love writing about characters at different stages of faith," she says of the new direction her writing career has taken, "and I'm here to stay."
