NOVELLA BOOK BLURB: Did you ever have a period of time in your life when the whole world crashed in on you? Rachael, the principal character in this book had such a time; an entire year of tragic events piled one upon the other. She finds strength and reassurance from the imagined voices of her never-born children. Her path leads her to write about relentless attacks on her spirit. Along the way she seeks solace from reading about others who have experienced similar loss. Rachael’s family and friends join her on this exploratory journey. They consider the written works that influence her life. That intellectual exercise morphs into an emotional and spiritual adventure. Perhaps the imagined voices are real.

I find dealing with grief to be a personal process. I am not the type of person to talk about my feelings with someone else. I lost my father three years ago and I miss him every single day. I handle my grief by getting up every day and keep moving forward. I try to remember the things he taught me and use them. My extra entry for Left Behind series. Thank you!
I think the best way to help someone deal with grief is to be there for them. Sometimes words aren't needed, just a hug and your willingness to listen.
I think both pillowcases are beautiful. I really love the ducks!
4. I think it means that we had a pre-mortal life with him, and he knew us well.
I think one of the most challenging experiences as a mom has been to deal wisely with an alcoholic daughter. As a teen she was more rebellious than her 4 siblings and ended up making a number of wrong decisions. In her early 20s she decided to be sober and was for 12 years. Once again circumstances overwhelmed and she made the choice to drink again. Finally after a yr and 1/2 she has decided again to be sober and is now 11 days in. Praise God. It has been hard to watch and be unable to fix. But we know that God is able and we are trusting Him to bring full healing to her spirit.
I just realized that we don't have to choose between the books and the pillow case, but that are are 2 different pillow cases! Am I correct? I LOVE the Christmas one.
Anyway, I am currently facing my most challenging parenting situation now. My oldest son has severe behavioral issues and is at a residential treatment facility. I fear for his future.
I deal with grief by drawing close to God and leaning on my friends and family for support.
I'd like my entry to go toward the LB series.
I have learned to deal with all the emotions of grief. My emotions tells me a lot of how I am dealing with it. I pour out my heart to God and to others. I am very careful with the people I am sharing with because I would not want to impede their own grief. Through God I have learned to listen, just be in the presence of others who are actively grieving, writing notes and/or letters of encouragement to them. Remembering days that would be hard for them especially that first year. One of the most important things I can do sometimes is not to hijacked their experience by sharing mine.
i like the white blanket.
I help myself and others to remember that we live in a fallen world and that is one big reason why bad things happen. Sometimes people want to go on the blaming route but if you go all the way on that route, you will end up at Adam and Eve and the serpent. God has not kept us clueless and if we seek His help, He will be with us in the times of trouble as well as good times.
I found teaching our son to drive to be very challenging and scary. Yikes!!! Easily distracted.
The book sounds really good. I am curious about it. Perhaps it in some way utilizes the imagined voices of the ones who have been aborted? Especially the Bible verse quoted is used a lot in discussion of abortions.
Grief can often overwhelm. Staying close to God and ministering to others helps as we live with it.
