Losing a child is among the most tragic experiences one can face. The crushing grief puts immense strain on the marriage, family relationships, and friendships that few can understand. That's why the "Hope in the Heartache" Book Bundle was created. It contains two uniquely hopeful books from authors that understand how it feels to lose a precious one.
In Surviving Sorrow: Advice from One Grieving Mom to Others, Kim Erickson's three-year-old son tragically passed away, she found plenty of resources on grieving. She says what she really needed, though, "was someone who would give me advice for living, not just grieving . . . How do I get through the grocery store without crying? What do I do with my son's things? When will my mind stop replaying the emergency room scene?"
With raw vulnerability, a deep well of wisdom, and the practical knowledge of someone who's been there, Kim walks grieving moms through the life-after-death process from how to plan the funeral to how to deal with friends, family, holidays, and birthdays. It is a profound and powerful resource that's invaluable for the mom who has lost a child—and for her friends and family who want to love her well.
