Grieving God’s Way: The Path to Lasting Hope and Healing [A 90-Day Devotional]
By Margaret Brownley and Haiku By Diantha Ain (Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2012)
A peaceful cover marks the entrance of your journey through this book and through the pathway of hope after a loved one has passed on from this earth. Whittled words evoke gentleness and care, while sending a light of beauty into your darkened world; there is a light of hope in your grief and you will find it.
“Grief knows no end, but neither does God’s healing,” (Brownley, 2012, p. 197). Comprised of 90 daily devotionals, this book reads as if you were speaking with a good friend. Bible verses, personal stories, poems, and insightful nuggets mix together to form each of these devotionals that work to mist a strong current of hope in the desert of grief.

The pages within this book are embossed with light images of nature that enhance the experience of reading. “Grieving God’s way requires us to trust that God will lead us through the darkness, heal our pain, take away our weariness, and fill our hearts with hope, peace, and new purpose,” (Brownley, 2012, p. 3). This book would make an excellent read for yourself or a special present to someone who has lost a loved one.
