Shipping calculated at checkout.
Heartbreak can happen in an instant. A phone call that a loved one has passed away sweeps life off its foundation and hurdles one into dark despair. Miscarriage, accident, illness, drugs, murder, or suicide can be an unexpected event in life’s journey, and the steps toward healing can be elusive for parents in a fog or friends seeking to bring comfort. Hope for a Broken Heart provides direction and hope for those who have experienced a tragic loss as well as for those who walk beside the bereaved. Twelve candid and varied mothers’ stories of the healing journey relate the death of their child and the rugged, yet inspiring path to finding new strength and purpose in their lives. The foreword by Ken Blanchard and the conclusion by Pastor Mike Macintosh speak of their experiences and the power these survivors’ candid stories offer the reader. “Thoughts to Ponder” at the end of every story as well as the book discussion questions make this book calming and healing for an individual as well as an excellent grief support group study.
