Hope For Today, Promises For Tomorrow

Hope For Today, Promises For Tomorrow by Teske Drake

About The Book:
No mother ever expects to grieve the death of her child before or immediately after the child is born. But the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences reports that as many as 31 percent of all pregnancies end in miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss. When the unthinkable happens, where do women turn for help? Written from the perspective of one grieving mommy to another, Hope for Today, Promises for Tomorrow is a ten-week study that will encourage and challenge women to delve into a deeper understanding of God's Word. As women engage in biblical teaching, they will learn to embrace God's promises of love, goodness, purpose, comfort, peace, refinement, restoration, hope, and eternity. "Hope for Today" verses peppered throughout each chapter, journaling cues, prayers, and the stories of other women who have experienced loss will help readers move from grieving in silent solitude to living life in the richness of God's love. While other books suggest a one-size-fits-all method for grief management or focus on understanding specific causes of child loss, Hope for Today, Promises for Tomorrow offers comfort for the reader, whatever her situation, by helping her focus on the light of the ultimate Promise, the hope of a Savior, Jesus Christ.

My Thoughts:
I have never experienced a miscarriage, or the loss of an infant, but I consider losing Mason as losing a baby, even though he was almost two. This book was a great read for me. The pain of losing a child is the same, no matter what the circumstances are. So reading other mom's experiences helped me to identify that I was not alone. The verses in the book are wonderful, and I love the journaling. It has really helped me a lot. A very nice book.
