a novel by Amanda Hartwig
Nonfiction - Memoir - Grief - Christianity
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Many people say that it's the most tragic pain one human being can endure in their entire lifetime. The death of your child will shatter you from the inside out. And it's meant to. If you or someone you know have endured the death of your beloved child, I am so sorry. My hope is that this book will fall into your hands as a gift from someone who loves you. Someone who might not know the right words to say or what to do to help you during this unimaginable time. Or maybe you're like me, and you're a child loss survivor and warrior mama. You might have done your research and might just be as desperate as I was for some healing help. My desperate plea is that you take the needed time that grief so often demands and that you put in the work to start your journey of healing.
You don't ever "get over" your child being gone, but you do learn how to wear the pain better. Keep holding on. You're not alone.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
My name is Sara Bastian. I have struggled with chronic pain for about 15 years. God has given me the strength to persevere and the guidance to find hope in his presence. He has called me to share my story and his abundant love with others. My life is different than how I imagined it to be. However, my relationship with God has deepened and I have learned to appreciate the small things in life. Creativity has been an outlet for me to express my pain and a way to worship God. I have found drawing to be one of my favorite ways to express my creativity. It has allowed me to show my love and support for others. May God bless you with his eternal love.
