About this item

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:

  • The all-too-often misunderstood difference between grief and depression.
  • The spiritual benefits to uniting your crosses with Jesus’s Passion and Death.
  • The counterintuitive notion that grief and joy can coexist.
  • The spiritual danger of internalizing our pain and hiding it from others.
  • How great saints like St. John of the Cross and St. Therese of Lisieux struggled to make sense out of suffering.
  • The six spiritual principles that will assist you on the journey of navigating grief.
  • How to know when you should seek professional help.
  • Ways in which God is calling you to bring hope and joy to those dwelling in darkness.
  • How to confidently confront the nothingness and emptiness you feel in your interior life.
  • And Meditations on the Stations of the Cross, the Sorrowful Mysteries, and the Seven Sorrows of Mary. that will help you reflect on how redemptive suffering can help you embrace God’s love and mercy.

"Jeannie’s poignant and stunning story reminds us that we must be willing to forfeit our plans and with great trust embrace God’s providence in order to discover our true purpose in this life. Each page moves the reader to courageously venture on a quest for God and for holiness even in the face of suffering."

A treasured addition to my bookshelf
No one is immune to grief, although it manifests in different forms. My greatest grief has stemmed from my husband’s recurring brain tumors rather than from the illness of a child, but in reading "From Grief to Grace" I felt that Jeannie’s personal experience of grief closely mirrored mine. Her understanding and wisdom were spiritual life rafts when my prayers had deteriorated to unutterable groaning (Rom 8:26). From "Grief to Grace" contains eloquent, intelligent and deeply moving insights into the eternal question of why we suffer. It is a treasured addition to my bookshelf.

Growing while grieving, this author shows you how
Mrs. Ewing's command of Catholic teachings, prayers and principles serves to round out the practical steps to find a way to grace and joy, rather than remaining in the darkness of grief. I would recommend this book to, well, everyone, because no one escapes from grief.

Jeannie Ewing is clearly bringing much more than a list of what to do to feel better in this book. She is providing reflections, spiritual insights, and concrete examples of the power of accepting your circumstances and suffering - not to be crippled by them - but to flourish and be strengthened by them! She has lived it and knows!
