Everyone experiences grief at some point in their lives. Some people seem to have more opportunities to deal with grief, while others seem to have a life somewhat untouched by tragedy-but still no matter where you fall on this spectrum, chances are your life has been touched with grief at some point. Nobody is immune to tragedy and how it makes us feel.
Susan Mead is no stranger to grief. She lost her sister, her brother-in-law, her youngest son, and her sister-in-law, all in a fairly short period of time. Yet today she still has joy in her life. Her grief didn’t consume her, even through all her trials and heartaches. And she is still praising God and dancing with Jesus.
So how did she move from grief, into the grace of God?
How is she able to smile after so much heartache?
How did she learn to dance with Jesus?
Her faith and the very real help of God carried her through.
And now she has written this book to be a blessing to others experiencing loss and profound heartache.
While I read this book, I realized many times in my life when God carried me through. I looked back and could recognize Him holding me in His arms, even though at the time I couldn’t see it. Susan’s book opened my eyes to instances in my life when God gently led me and held both my heart and my hands. I can definitely say that this book increased my faith.
I wrote about some of those experiences in this blog post, if you are interested in how Susan’s book opened my eyes to the loving hands of God.
