  • Seasons Of Sorrow

    $24.99

    On November 3, 2020, Tim and Aileen Challies received the shocking news that their son Nick had died. A 20-year-old student at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, he had been participating in a school activity with his fiancee, sister, and friends, when he fell unconscious and collapsed to the ground. Neither students, nor a passing doctor, nor paramedics were able to revive him. His parents received the news at their home in Toronto and immediately departed for Louisville to be together as a family. While on the plane, Tim, an author and blogger, began to process his loss through writing.

    Nick’s death resonated through the evangelical world. His memorial service in the United States and funeral in Canada were watched by thousands. Tim’s blog posts were read by hundreds of thousands as he gave voice to his sorrow and anguish, but also to his faith and hope. Seasons of Sorrow includes a selection of those early reflections, but also many pieces Tim has written since and not shared with the public. Separated into four seasons, from Fall to Summer, and written mostly in the present tense, Seasons of Sorrow shares real-time reflections from the first year of his grief.

    Seasons of Sorrow begins in the Challies living room with the phone call every parent dreads–We did everything we could. It ends exactly one year later as Tim ponders the final first. In a year of many firsts–a first Thanksgiving with an empty chair, a first Christmas with an empty stocking, a first birthday with no gifts, the anniversary of Nick’s death is the final first and, thus, a fitting conclusion. Along the way, Tim shares the poignancy of his early grief, the doubts and fears that plagued him, the faith that sustained him, and the hope that has given him joy even through such sorrow.

  • I Am With You Always

    $29.95

    When we are alone, isolated, afraid, and grieving the loss of a loved one, Jesus tells us plainly, “Behold, I am with you always!” It is His presence and constant companionship that brings us comfort, consolation, and hope through all the seasons of our lives.

    I Am with You Always invites the ordinary Catholic to once again “behold Jesus.” In doing so, we will realize with joy and gratitude the wonderful connection between the ordinary teachings and practices of our Catholic faith and the strength we derive from them to weather the storms of life.

    The authors gently invite their readers to respond to Christ’s perennial call to “come and see” and to verify for yourself that:
    *God truly is Love and His mercy endures forever;
    *Christ draws near in order to remain with us;
    *we truly encounter Christ in the sacraments and in the liturgy;
    *we live, even now, in the communion of His saints;
    *Our Lady of Compassion constantly intercedes for us; and
    *God hears our prayers and responds to our heartache and pain.

    This book was written as an act of friendship, as one heart speaking to another about the reality of God’s love for us. It is an act of companionship, a drawing near to a beloved friend in their time of need. It is a gift that reminds a broken heart that there is always hope in Jesus Christ. For He alone is the victory over death that we seek for ourselves and for our loved ones.

It’s a story of God’s faithfulness in the crucible of grief and what can happen when we say yes to his invitation to Follow me . . . I want to recover your life.

  • Hole In The World

    $27.00

    When did we forget how to grieve well?

    When Amanda Held Opelt suffered a season of loss-including three miscarriages and the unexpected death of her sister, New York Times bestselling writer Rachel Held Evans-she was confronted with sorrow she didn’t know to how face. Opelt struggled to process her grief and accept the reality of the pain in the world. She also wrestled with some unexpectedly difficult questions: What does it mean to truly grieve and to grieve well? Why is it so hard to move on? Why didn’t my faith prepare me for this kind of pain? And what am I supposed to do now?

    Her search for answers led her to discover that generations past embraced rituals that served as vessels for pain and aided in the process of grieving and healing. Today, many of these traditions have been lost as religious practice declines, cultures amalgamate, death is sanitized, and pain is averted.

    In this raw and authentic memoir of bereavement, Opelt explores the history of human grief practices and how previous generations have journeyed through periods of suffering. She explores grief rituals and customs from various cultures, including:

    *the Irish tradition of keening, or wailing in grief, which teaches her that healing can only begin when we dive headfirst into our grief

    *the Victorian tradition of post-mortem photographs and how we struggle to recall a loved one as they were

    *the Jewish tradition of sitting shiva, which reminds her to rest in the strength of her community even when God feels absent

    *the tradition of mourning clothing, which set the bereaved apart in society for a time, allowing them space to honor their grief

    As Opelt explores each bereavement practice, it gives her a framework for processing her own pain. She shares how, in spite of her doubt and anger, God met her in the midst of sorrow and grieved along with her, and shows that when we carefully and honestly attend to our losses, we are able to expand our capacity for love, faith, and healing.

  • Soul Care When Youre Grieving

    $15.99

    There is no right or wrong way to face loss. But do you ever feel you could be coping better?

    Grief is difficult. We all experience it-and we experience it differently. But what if you could break down some of the barriers created by grief? What if you could latch onto ways to engage again with the world around you?

    It’s far too easy to be tied to common misconceptions about grief. By reframing those misconceptions, we can learn to give ourselves more grace as we process loss. Each chapter of Soul Care When You’re Grieving is designated by the opposite of one of the five experiences of grief and can help you start that course to reframing through:

    *devotions
    *prayers
    *creative exercises

    God designed you uniquely–including how you process loss. Learn to embrace your own personal blueprint for dealing with grief.

    Grief is difficult. We all experience it-and we experience it differently. There is no right or wrong way to face loss, yet many of us feel we’re doing it wrong.

    In this life, we mourn-the loss of someone we love, the passing of a pet, the changes that come with age, even situations-these cause us to grieve. I wrote this book about the grief of all those situations and more. The exercises contained here aren’t geared to a specific situation, so they are appropriate for all kinds of loss.

    Going through loss narrows my world. I used to believe that was my personal experience, but I’ve discovered it’s a common grief that happens to us all. I’m praying this book helps you break down the barriers created by grief and helps you engage with the world around you.

    Most of all, I pray you learn to embrace your own process of grief and quit judging whether you’re handling things the way they should be handled. God designed each of us uniquely, and that blueprint includes the way we process loss.

    Each chapter is designated by the opposite of one of the five experiences of grief. It’s far too easy to be tied to the common misconceptions about grief, so by reframing them, I’m hoping you’ll give yourself more grace as you process your loss.

    These stages of grief are not steps or levels, they are just some common phases everyone goes through while they process loss. Don’t fall into the trap of believing they come in a certain order or that when you’ve experienced one of them, it won’t crop back up again.

    Use this book to feed your soul when you’re grieving and know my prayer team and I have prayed over your personal journey. Rem

  • All The Ways Our Dead Still Speak

    $26.99

    What if our dead remain with us? What if closure is not the goal? No matter what you believe about the afterlife, what if the hereafter intersects with the here and now?

    Caleb Wilde, author of the acclaimed memoir Confessions of a Funeral Director, was a skeptic. The baffling stories people told him–deathbed visions of long-dead parents, visits from the other side–must be hallucinations or wishful thinking, he thought. But the more stories he heard, and the more he learned about non-Western understandings of body and spirit, the less sure he was.

    All the Ways Our Dead Still Speak takes readers on a lyrical and tender quest to encounter the hereafter. As Wilde picks up bodies, organizes funerals, and meets with grieving families in a small town in Pennsylvania, those who remain share with him–and us–what they experience in the thin places between life and death. Entwining these stories with his own as a sixth-generation funeral director, and with the findings of neuroscience and the solace of faith, Wilde creates a searching, reverent inquiry into all the ways our dead remain with us. In the process, he takes on prevailing dogmas about death: from a narrow Christian view of heaven and hell, to secular assumptions that death is the end, to pop-psychology maxims that say we all need “closure” after our loved ones die.

    The dead don’t have to be buried twice, once in the ground and again in our hearts. In the pages of this unforgettable book, learn how love and memory and mystery fuse this world to the next.

  • Game Plan For Loss

    $17.99

    There is always a plan.

    Joe Gibbs has dedicated his life to helping the “average Joe” apply Biblical principles to everyday situations, using the Bible as a game plan. But in 2019, when his son, J.D., lost his battle with a degenerative brain disease at the age of 49, Joe realized that while he did have a game plan for life, he did not have a game plan for dealing with loss.

    Reeling, he set out to find answers to the 5 questions that plagued him throughout J.D.’s illness:

    1. Why didn’t God show up?
    2. Why does God allow suffering?
    3. Why do some people suffer more than others?
    4. Are we living a life of chance?
    5. Do we really reap what we sow?

    Written with the non-Christian in mind, Game Plan for Loss presents Coach Gibbs’ answers to these questions in plain, everyday language, proving once again that the Bible is in fact the ultimate game plan, and even though it may not always feel like it, God is there, He is listening, He does have a plan, and everything does work together for good for those who love and serve Him.

  • Keep At It Riley

    $22.95

    “This is a story of how Catholic faith accompanied my family through the sickness and death of my elderly parents. What could mistakenly be seen as a downward spiral was actually upward. As my parents were called home to God those around them caught a glimpse of heaven. Ministering to them during this time was challenging, yet a blessing, not a burden… I discovered my source of strength was my Irish Catholic upbringing, the sacraments, and my God. Our family motto, ‘Keep at It, Riley!’ sums it up well. We don’t give up; we give it to God.”

    This is the second book of the Magenta series, edited by Charles Camosy. The Magenta project brings together authors who will treat important topics from the standpoint of Christian conviction without being trapped in a polarized mindset.

  • Courageously Expecting : 30 Days Of Encouragement For Pregnancy After Loss

    $18.99

    Using Scripture and personal narrative, Courageously Expecting empathizes with and empowers women to face a pregnancy after loss with faith and courage, despite inevitable feelings of grief and fear that accompany life after losing a baby.

    Pregnancy is widely regarded as the most joyful time in a woman’s life, but for the mother who has experienced pregnancy loss, a subsequent pregnancy can feel like she’s holding her breath and hoping for what she can’t control. In Courageously Expecting, Jenny Albers meets women in this difficult season as someone who has also experienced the worst and cautiously hoped for the best. Through the telling of her own story, Scripture, and heartfelt prayer, she encourages readers to cling to faith in the face of fear and guides them to:
    *cultivate hope when doubt weighs heavy;

    *realize that the past does not dictate the present or the future and that God creates a way in the wilderness of grief and loss;

    *flip the script on the what-if, worst-case-scenario narrative in their minds and learn to take their thoughts captive; and

    *find the courage to humble themselves and ask for and accept help from others.

    Regardless of where readers are on their pregnancy after loss journey, Courageously Expecting is a companion to help them through the days when fear overshadows hope.

  • Hope For The Hurting

    $14.99

    Life is painful.

    Everyone’s story comes with unique challenges, difficulties, bumps, and bruises that leave you lost and drowning in their wake. It could be a financial disaster, a health issue, a broken relationship, or the loss of a loved one.

    Dr. Tony Evans, bestselling author and pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, understands life’s hardships firsthand. In a span of less than two years, he lost his brother, sister, brother-in-law, two nieces, father, and wife. At the same time, both of his daughters received cancer diagnoses. In the wake of all this pain, Dr. Evans had to put into practice, at the deepest levels, the truths he has preached about God for more than forty years.

    God’s Word doesn’t promise us a life free from pain and trouble. It promises us something else-Someone else. Someone who will walk with us through all of life’s trials and troubles.

    There is hope for the hurting: His name is Jesus.

  • Lemons On Friday

    $19.99

    After being married for less than a year, country music legend Alan Jackson’s daughter Mattie was faced with navigating a future that didn’t include her young husband and their lifelong plans.

    Ben Selecman passed away twelve days after a traumatic brain injury-and three weeks before celebrating his first anniversary with his wife. Twenty-eight-year-old Mattie had to find a way to move forward and reconcile herself with a good God, even when He did not give her the healing miracle she prayed for.

    In Lemons on Friday, readers walk with Mattie Jackson Selecman during the first years of grief following Ben’s tragic death as she grapples with her loss and leans on a steadfast God. Based on Selecman’s journal writings, Lemons on Friday will speak to all readers who must carry on without their loved ones and take a hard look at faith when their lives have not gone as planned.

    Lemons on Friday grapples with questions like these:
    *How did I get here?
    *Will this always hurt?
    *Who am I now?
    *How do I move forward?

    “When fundamental parts of our lives are lost, when people and things we thought we’d never lose are suddenly gone, it’s natural to want answers,” writes Selecman. “Why did this happen? Who’s to blame? What could I have done differently? And for many of us in the aftermath of life-shattering change, we also want to know, where is God? Not just where was He when the tragedy happened, but where is He now in my darkest days of hurt, wondering, and longing for comfort? When I am on the floor, writhing in tears with no idea what the rest of my life will look like, where is God?”

    Lemons on Friday offers insight and peace for anyone grieving, but especially for young people experiencing loss and facing a future that feels full of question marks.

    Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will face some kind of loss in life. But we can, if we choose, know the grace that transforms us.

    Whether your suffering has come in the form of chronic illness, disability, divorce, unemployment, crushing disappointment, or the loss of someone you love, Sittser will help you put your thoughts into words in a way that will guide you deeper into your own healing process.

    *Will the depression ever lift?
    *Will I ever overcome the bitterness I feel?
    *What is God’s plan in all of this?

    The circumstances are not important; what we do with those circumstances is. In coming to the end of ourselves, we can come to the beginning of a new life.

  • Grief And Your Child

    $6.25

    Counselor and author Bob Kellemen helps parents understand the challenges their child is facing and guides them in how to navigate with their child the long and difficult road of lament and recovery. Giving a child permission to grieve, practicing lingering listening, and sharing your own struggles and Scripture are all part of the process. As parents help children experience their grief face-to-face with Christ, they will discover that understanding his compassionate comfort is key to finding healing and hope. Because of Jesus’s resurrection, they can have the reassurance that life triumphs over death.

The statistics are sobering–between 10% and 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, 1% in stillbirth, and nearly 23,000 babies die before their first birthday–but statistics alone miss the depth of the hurt. Each loss is personal and devastating.

    No woman is prepared to lose a baby, and caregivers are often unaware of how best to help. In Hope Beyond an Empty Cradle therapist Hallie Scott first shares her own story, as a mother whose only child, Abigail, was stillborn, and then leads readers through a healing process that makes space for heartbreak, despair, guilt, questions, and anger. Life is never the same in the wake of the loss, but a new normal is possible.

    The book will be a welcome resource for families who have lost a child, as well as for those seeking to care for them in their traumatic grief.

  • Either Way Well Be All Right

    $16.99

    Does God have a hope to offer us in times of pain? Can God meet and sustain us even if our circumstances don’t change?

    One of the few guarantees in life is that we will suffer. Everything around us is broken by sin. Each of us has an expiration date. A few years ago, Eric and his wife, Elizabeth, were confronted with this unavoidable reality when she was faced with a terminal cancer diagnosis and he was caring for her and their three children.

    Shattered by grief, they began to wrestle with what it means to follow Jesus when everything around them seemed to be giving way. What this pastor and his wife discovered were a set of truths about God from Scripture that provided the resources they needed to survive-truths too often neglected by the modern world. God meets us in our grief, but not always in ways we expect or even want.Coming from that jumbled place of agony and assurance, Either Way, We’ll Be All Right is a journey through the darkness in hopes of discovering the light on the other side.

  • Flood Of Kindness

    $17.99

    Perfect for all children experiencing loss or grief, A Flood of Kindness gracefully confronts difficult feelings and celebrates the healing power of kindness.

    “The night the river jumped its banks, everything changed.”

    So begins A Flood of Kindness, a poignant picture book that addresses grief and loss and demonstrates how kindness can bring hope. Written in spare prose and told from an intimate first-person point of view, the story follows Charlotte, a young girl who watches floodwaters rise in her home and is forced to evacuate to a shelter with her parents. Kind people she doesn’t know give her food, socks and shoes to keep her feet warm, and a place to sleep. As Charlotte adjusts to the shelter–a strange, crowded place that is not home–she grapples with feelings of anger and sadness. But as the days go by, Charlotte starts to realize how grateful she is for the things that she does have–her parents, a cot to sleep on, food to eat–and starts looking for ways to help others in the shelter.

    All children deal with sadness and loss in some way, whether it stems from a natural disaster, the death of a pet, or moving to a new place. A Flood of Kindness acknowledges those difficult feelings and helps readers process them in a healthy way. Children will be encouraged to be kind to those who need a friend and to help others in whatever way they can, no matter how small.

  • Surviving The Holidays While Grieving

    $13.99

    The loss of a loved one can change our lives forever.

    Healing from the pain of losing a loved one doesn’t happen overnight. Each day can be a battle to keep unpredictable emotions under control-especially around holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, which can bring losses into full focus. Traditions and expectations often add more stress to an already grieving heart. Even simple tasks, such as walking through a store during the holidays, can surface memories that turn on emotions like a light switch. Finding joy may seem impossible.

    Janet Johnson knows. She lost a brother to murder, a son to a car accident, and a brother-in-law to suicide. She has experienced firsthand how the holidays have a peculiar way of activating emotions-and why it’s important to process those emotions, not ignore them.

    In Surviving the Holidays While Grieving, Janet comes alongside readers who have lost a loved one or are journeying with someone dealing with grief. With tenderness and compassion, she offers ideas for managing emotions, hands-on activities for expressing feelings in tangible ways, and tips for communicating those feelings to others. Readers will be encouraged to remember meaningful traditions and create new memories about their loved ones with others.

    Through the pages of this tenderly composed book written from a Christian perspective, readers will find hope for healing and a toolkit for taking steps forward with joy.

  • Beautiful And Terrible Things

    $20.00

    With deep faith, knowledge of Scripture, and the wisdom that comes only from experience, Brady guides readers grieving losses and setbacks of all kinds in voicing their lament to God, reflecting on the nature of human existence, and persevering in hope. Brady finds that rather than an image of God managing every event and action in our lives, the biblical account describes the very real world in which we all live, a world full of hardship and calamity that often comes unbidden and unmerited. Yet, it also is a world into which God lovingly intrudes to bring comfort, peace, and grace.

    Bible scholar Christian Brady, an expert on Old Testament lament, was as prepared as a person could be for the death of a child-which is to say, not nearly well enough. When his eight-year-old son died suddenly from a fast-moving blood infection, Brady heard the typical platitudes about accepting God’s will and knew that quiet acceptance was not the only godly way to grieve.

  • Good In The Awful

    $11.99

    The reality of life is that death happens. And if you have had the beautiful opportunity of escaping its crippling impact, there is no doubt that you have been jarred a time or two with unexpected losses. This is not a matter of if, but when, as everything we hold dear has the potential to be taken from us.

    Whether you have experienced a loss of the life of a loved one, a dream you have held on to for years, the trust you once shared in a relationship, or a change in physical ability after a diagnosis or accident, you have battled the great darkness that comes flooding into your life. This ever-present heaviness brings with it life-altering questions and settles on your shoulders making perfectly normal situations almost unbearable to face. This loss, this breaking, has the ability to blind us from the Truth and change everything we have built our lives on.

    In her book, The Good in the Awful, Vanessa invites readers to join in on an honest conversation about pain and what it is to look for God in the darkness, using her own story of crippling grief as the guide to discovering if God is still good and at work in our brokenness. Are you up to join in on the challenge? A great expedition through unknown waters and deep pain to find the good that God is working on in the middle of our mess?

    Because despite our feelings of God being distant and indifferent to our pain, He isn’t. He is ever present and still in the business of using our broken pieces to build an even greater story. For our benefit and the good of others, wasting nothing. If any truth can be found let it be this, that our Redeemer (your Redeemer) lives!

  • Glorious Puzzle : A Personal Experience Of The Sovereignty Of God

    $18.99

    Your loss and brokenness could turn into a doorway of discovering how much the sovereign God cares about you. That’s exactly what Mary experienced in grief when her youngest son died as a result of injuries from a car accident. The tragedy led her to review God’s actions in her life in prior experiences, which enabled her to trust in His demonstration of lovingkindness in the grief the family and community experienced.

    God is the divine Puzzle Maker, putting the pieces of our lives in place, one by one. He is a sovereign God who has the power to plan our lives for His glorious purpose. As we look for evidences of His care and tenderness in very difficult experiences of life as well in the good times, we are drawn in a close love relationship to this awesome God. Grief and loss can be an opportunity to draw us nearer to God.

    Glorious Puzzle is the account of Mary learning to trust and love God deeply through her experiences of infertility, miscarriage, adoption of a special needs child, career changes, the mental illness and incarceration of her oldest son and the death of her youngest son. Her account challenges us to open our eyes to see God’s hand at work in our hard times and then give Him the honor and praise. It is a story of putting Proverbs 3:5 & 6 into action in everyday life and in times of trial. As God is acknowledged, He frees us to experience joy, draw near to Him, and feel His awesome love for us, and we can respond in grateful service.

    “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” (ESV)

  • With Her Last Breath

    $15.99

    With Her Last Breath looks for answers of hope for those struggling with thoughts of suicide and their loved ones.

    When Barbara M. Roberts first heard that her niece, Kathy, had taken her life, the pain was so bad she could barely stand it. If only she had called her more often; if only they had taken her to dinner one more time; if only she had taken her ‘suicide talk’ more seriously.

    Suicide happens so often in our society that it now almost seems normal. People used to think that Christians did not commit suicide. But when Barbara read through Kathy’s 26-page journal, written within the last 36 hours of her life, she knew she was experiencing something the likes of which she had never seen in all her years of pastoral ministry. Kathy’s journal not only details the act itself, but her reasoning behind her suicide–a depiction of why she could not stay here on this earth one more day, looking forward instead to her hope of Heaven. Each chapter of With Her Last Breath is tied to a page in Kathy’s journal, intertwining the pages with stories of others and tools to help those who are suicidal or their loved ones, including what to watch for, how to care, and where to turn. Hearing others’ stories of suffering, those struggling with suicide in any manner are able to make more sense out of their own suffering and emerge with a vision of God’s love and faithfulness.

  • Song Of A Wounded Heart Regaining Hope And Trust After Personal Tragedy

    $15.99

    In November 2004, Lora Jones was a happy wife and proud mother of two beautiful children.
    Lora and her family left for a family vacation, excited to celebrate the holidays, but sounds of music and laughter in their van were shattered by a head-on collision. Lora watched helplessly as, one-by-one, her beloved family slipped into eternity. Awake in a nightmare, all traces of laughter were replaced by the mournful cries of a wounded heart. How in the world could Lora go on alone?

    Song of a Wounded Heart tells the true story of Lora’s journey from death to hope. Unbelievably, God sang to her the night of the accident. “Do not be afraid,” He whispered, “This is for my glory.” How could that be possible? She was crushed under the enormous pain, unable to think. In the months to come, as she struggled to understand, God patiently continued to sing, drawing her gently to His side, daring her to trust Him. Lora shares her personal journal entries, including the Bible reading plan God used to speak to her and stories of people in the Bible who also struggled with faith. Join Lora in Song of a Wounded Heart as she asks God questions, deals with anger and loneliness, and chooses to believe in the goodness of God, in spite of the circumstances.

    -What to expect while grieving
    -What is normal and abnormal grief
    -How to deal with the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of grief
    -How grief affects one’s relationship with God

  • When God Says No

    $14.99

    What do we do when deep grief invades our lives? How do we negotiate the unwelcomed journey we find ourselves on? What do we do with our unspeakable pain? Even more, what do we do when we have asked God to spare the life of our loved one and he does not give the answer we hope for?

    In When God Says No, Brenda Smit-James tells the story of her journey with grief following the untimely death of her mother – a journey where she questioned God and his goodness, questioned whether Jesus was worth following, and questioned the relevance of the Christian life.

    In telling her story, Brenda shows us how grief can be engaged and not merely endured and how we can face the darkness of grief with quiet courage and, in so doing, find a way back into the light again.

  • Louder Song : Listening For Hope In The Midst Of Lament

    $15.99

    Lament helps us hear God’s louder song.

    When you’re in the midst of suffering, you want answers for the unanswerable, resolutions to the unresolvable. You want to tie up pain in a pretty little package and hide it under the bed, taking it out only when you feel strong enough to face it. But grief won’t be contained. Grief disobeys. Grief explodes. In one breath, you may be able to say that God’s got this and all will be well. In the next, you might descend into fatalism. No pretending. Here, you are raw before God, an open wound.

    There is a pathway through this suffering. It’s not easy, but God will use it to lead you toward healing. This path is called lament. Lament leads us between the Already and the Not Yet. Lament minds the gap between current hopelessness and coming hope. Lament anticipates new creation but also acknowledges the painful reality of now. Lament recognizes the existence of evil and suffering-without any sugarcoating-while simultaneously declaring that suffering will not have the final say.

    In the midst of your darkest times, you will discover that lament leads you back to a place of hope-not because lamenting does anything magical, but because God sings a louder song than suffering ever could, a song of renewal and restoration.

  • As She Is Dying

With the honor of officiating nearly 1000 funerals, Pastor Kevin Cain offers life in the midst of death.

    In As She Is Dying, Kevin Cain writes, “I have given my life to bring hope to a people who have little reason to hope. Maybe Appalachians have allowed our hills’ majesty and grandeur to blind us from coal dust and addiction. Yet, I do see hope. I see hope in what is dying. I see hope in what is dead. I see hope in what remains. Yes, death has the keen ability to either clear up, cover up or stir up. Still, sometimes we must descend in order to turn into the clouds. As She Is Dying is a book about death that offers stories of life. In these pages, you will find a little bit of wisdom, some stories of hope, and the eulogizing words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart which I trust have been acceptable in the sight of my strength and my Redeemer. Somehow and somewhere in death, hope must be discovered. Maybe, through the literal metaphor of Appalachians’ deaths, you can see life. Some were reconciled long before their deaths. Some were reconciled just prior to their deaths. And, others were reconciled in the midst of death. There is hope for all…hope’s breath, even in death.”

  • When Drag Racing Met Country Music

    $13.99

    “Till death do you part.” Words I hung upon and waited for during the first wedding ceremony I attended after my husband died. Instantly our 3-chord unity, that had been tethered together for over 20 years, severed. Was I a free woman? Free to do what? Most certainly a heartbroken woman. After all I did not choose the tearing of hearts and certainly it was not what I had planned on happening at such a young age. No one to check in with upon returning home or to meet for dinner or a movie. Silence.

    Alas, there was One. My Heavenly Father became my best friend and my Husband. Rediscovering my love for writing, along with scripture, the collections inside helped in finding my way back to where my true identity lies. The wife of a Drag Racing Legend was who I had become; identity in Christ is where I am now. Whether you are a widow or searching for more meaning relating to heart issues, welcome. Let us sojourn together.

  • Buried Dreams : From Devastating Loss To Unimaginable Hope

    $16.99

    At 20 weeks pregnant, Lindsey Dennis and her husband were told the child she was carrying would not live due to a fatal diagnosis. Later, in another stunning blow, they were told the same news with her second pregnancy. They chose to celebrate both lives alongside a community, both local and online, of hundreds of thousands as she carried each child to term only to bury them 14 months apart from each other. Through the crushing of their hopes and dreams, they came to know the kind of resurrection hope that can rise from the grave. This experience of infant loss revealed to Dennis how sorrow and suffering are instruments in the hands of God to forge in us a greater joy and hope than one can ever know. This kind of joy can only be discovered when we walk through the deep pain of burying our most precious dreams. Buried Dreams offers an uplifting perspective, sharing how devastating loss of personal dreams can give way to unimaginable hope and how death can give way to life. Framing her own story of staggering loss and soaring hope with biblical perspective, Dennis highlights that we can never plan for the unexpected turns of this life that sometimes lead to great personal suffering, but we can reach for the One who is there with us in the loss.

  • God Help Me Im Grieving

    $12.99

    Have you lost someone–or something–dear to you?

    At some point, whether through the loss of a friend or family member, a decline in health, or the end of a career or a relationship, everyone will encounter grief. After nearly twenty-five years in the mental health field, author and licensed professional counselor Katherine B. Barner is well-acquainted with the ways grief can impact a life.

    While grief is unavoidable, it is also a valuable aspect of the human experience. Utilizing Biblical examples of human grief–and God’s acceptance of its complicated rawness–Barner demonstrates how a person’s response to loss does not indicate a lack of faith but testifies instead to their humanity and the life-affirming choice to love and be loved. Filled with practical tips for handling loss and avoiding contention with those who lack compassion or grieve differently, this valuable resource includes a section dedicated to navigating holidays and events while grieving.

    Crafting this guide from her professional experience as well as from lessons learned during her own seasons of mourning, Barner offers compassion and guidance to those suffering a loss.

    Designed not only to assist readers through the process of grief but to grant them permission to fully experience it, God Help Me, I’m Grieving validates each reader’s unique response to loss, allowing it to become a vehicle of inner change and spiritual and emotional growth.

    Additional Info
    “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings.” Philippians 3:10 (ASV)

    If we follow Jesus, we will experience pain. It comes with the territory. We might face hardship because of our Christian commitment, or we may have challenges just from living in a fallen world. Either way, Christians follow in the footsteps of our suffering Savior and participate in his suffering.

    But that’s not the whole story. Missionary Paul Borthwick and pastor Dave Ripper show how transformation through our personal pain enables us to minister faithfully to a hurting world. They candidly share about their own struggles and how they have seen God’s kingdom advance through hardship and suffering. Though we naturally avoid suffering, Christians throughout church history have become powerful witnesses to Christ as a result of their brokenness.

    Life is painful, but pain need not have dominion over us. Instead, it can propel us in missional solidarity with our suffering world. Come find comfort and renewed purpose in the fellowship of the suffering.

  • Navigating The River Of Grief

    $16.95

    When members of the church experience loss, it can be difficult for pastors to discern how best to care for them. What can spiritual leaders expect in the grief process? What are we to do, to say, to journey with those who have experienced loss? What mistakes might we make that do more harm than good?

    In Navigating the River of Grief, Rev. Dr. Bonnie Bates shares the results of her important research into the grief process. Her concept of grief as a river is inspired by several biblical references to water, both its ability to threaten and give life. Bates uses case studies to present grief not as the neat linear progression of stages we’d like it to be; rather, it is a river that sweeps the bereaved along in unpredictable ways. Its choppy waters cause pain and its depths are menacing, but when we understand the flow of its currentas a spiritual journey we can better help the bereaved navigate toward new life.

    Navigating the River of Griefprovides pastors with invaluable resources when providing grief ministry:

    Evidence-based best practices for spiritual counseling
    Case studies to provide context
    Guidance on the use of specific scriptures
    Explorations of theological conflicts

    Together with the Bible itself, Navigating the River of Grief will inform your ministry with spiritual truth about those hours between the night of weeping and the joy the Lord brings in the morning (Psalm 30:5).

  • Quiet Times For Those Who Grieve

    $13.99

    Let Comfort Find You in the Quiet

    There are no words to instantly take away the deep pain of your loss. Grieving is a personal path-one that takes time to cross. But genuine expressions of comfort and understanding can help you make gradual steps toward healing.

    H. Norman Wright, a respected Christian counselor, offers these daily devotions from a heart that has endured difficult loss-yet found God faithful through it all. In these profound and practical reflections, you’ll find…
    *gentle guidance through the grieving process
    *comforting reminders that you’re not alone
    *hope-and the space you need to uncover it

    When you’re grieving, give yourself quiet moments to receive God’s limitless love and peace.
