  • Unexpecting : Real Talk On Pregnancy Loss

    $16.99

    When your baby dies, you find yourself in a life you never expected. And even though pregnancy and infant loss is common, it’s not common to you. Instead, you feel like a stranger in your own body, surrounded by well-meaning people who often don’t know how to support you.

  • Hope Beyond An Empty Cradle

    $18.99

    Tens of thousands of women and families every year lose a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant 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.

  • 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.

  • I Understand : Pain, Love, And Healing After Suicide

    $14.99

    Time doesn’t heal all-love does

    When Vonnie Woodrick lost her husband Rob to suicide in 2003, she was faced with a series of decisions. How would she move on? How would she support and raise her three children as a young widow? How would she talk about Rob and honor his memory? These questions had no easy answers, but Vonnie found herself longing for one thing in particular: understanding. The stigma of mental illness loomed large over Rob’s death and made healing difficult. But Vonnie found the common assumptions surrounding suicide to be false. Rob was not crazy. He did not choose to take his own life. He was in agony and only wanted the pain to end. His death was a direct result of his mental illness. Why didn’t more people understand this?

    Over a decade later, Vonnie and her children created the nonprofit organization i understand to help others enduring this same grief and loneliness. Since its founding in 2014, i understand has become a haven of compassionate comfort in the West Michigan region and a powerful voice in the movement to change the way we talk about suicide so that it can be seen for what it truly is: a terminal effect of mental illness, rather than a deliberate choice.

    This is the story of how love transformed Vonnie’s brokenness into hope-not only for herself and her family, but for anyone struggling to emerge from the darkness of suicide.

    Little Bear’s friends help him understand what it means to say goodbye

    Grandmother Bear has gone for ever, and Little Bear is feeling sad. His mother wisely suggests that perhaps asking his woodland companions what saying goodbye means to them will help him understand his loss. Little Bear’s day of exploring and asking questions brings him comfort and hope. For the swallows, saying goodbye means flying to warmer lands; for the leaves of the trees it is a chance to be free, leaving the tree at her most beautiful; for the moon it is to return to be with the Sun; and for the Sun it is to rise in another sky and just because Little Bear can’t see him doesn’t mean he isn’t there. This charmingly illustrated picture book will help young children in times of bereavement, loss or change, gently exploring the reasons for saying goodbye and giving reassurance that goodbye doesn’t mean the end of things.

  • Beautiful And Terrible Things

    $18.00

    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.

  • Living With Grief

    $12.99

    Life will be rudely interrupted by death. There’s no way around that truth; no one is immune from death.

    Christians, though comforted by the promise of the resurrection, still are vulnerable to the emotional and physical effects that come with grief. Those dealing with grief often just need permission to grieve, yet retain hope and comfort for the future. Often, they just want someone to hear their voice.

    Author Kristian Kincaid, a pastor for more than 30 years who has counseled countless griving people and who has experienced the grief of losing his sister on the plane that crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11, understands and will listen. He takes readers on a journey that acknowledges that pain is real and is hard, and that struggle can last years, but also that grievers do not grieve alone and that there is hope: that Jesus lives and death has died.

But as we close one chapter of life, we need tools and information to begin a new chapter and make that transition from what was to what is now. It requires challenging old assumptions and creating a new identity and road map for life going forward.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Picking Up My Shattered Pieces

    $16.95

    By every indication, Gina Pastore was enjoying the fruits of a long marriage after raising two children. She and her husband, Frank, were childhood sweethearts whose lives unfolded like a Hollywood movie: he found fame pitching for the Cincinnati Reds; she tended to the home fires with a son and daughter. It was during Frank’s big league career that they turned their priorities from materialism to the things in life that really matter: God, family, and integrity. When Frank retired, he went into ministry, but even such a noble pursuit had its difficulties. Then in 2004, Frank became the host of the Frank Pastore Show on KKLA, a Christian radio station in Los Angeles. His weekday program quickly became popular. And then one afternoon while commuting home on his Honda VTX 1800 motorcycle their lives changed forever in an instant. What follows is Gina’s account of the rest of the story and a reminder that in times of trouble and tribulation, God calls us to persevere and trust in Him.

    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.
