From Grief to Grace
Grief touches all of our lives, but it does not have to paralyze us with fear or inaction. God allows suffering because He knows how powerful it can be to our spiritual lives and to helping us fully embrace His love and mercy. In this insightful and practical book, you’ll learn how to live a life of redemptive suffering that will draw you through grief into a state of tenacity, meaning, holiness, and joy.
Author Jeannie Ewing is no stranger to suffering. Her family has long struggled with bipolar disorder and depression, and her baby daughter was born with a rare genetic disorder that caused her bones to prematurely fuse together. Despite the many layers of sadness, loss, confusion, and anger, Jeannie responded to God’s calling and transformed her life into one with profound purpose and joy.
Combining her training in psychology and counseling with real-life examples, Jeannie will show you that there is much life to be lived in the midst of loss, and that all things – even the most painful life experiences – are working together for a greater good. You’ll also learn:
Comfort for the Sick and Dying
Solid Christian comfort for those facing illness or death and wisdom to guide all who care for them.
Here is a storehouse of Christian wisdom for people facing the most vulnerable and desperate times of their lives: the onset of serious illness or the approach of death. These pages are also essential reading for Christian caregivers and for wise souls who want to prepare now for illness or death, either of which can come any day, even to those of us in perfect health.
With refreshing clarity and fidelity to Scripture, the author, Msgr. David Greenstock, will show you how to let Jesus Himself give you strength. You’ll learn how to make better use of the sacraments to gain spiritual sustenance; you’ll even discover how to transform your sufferings into occasions for communion with God. Best of all, you’ll learn how to resist the temptations that especially afflict sick people, and how best to pray, when you’re sick, to the God who assures you He will wipe away all your tears.
